G53 (AR111) LED Bulbs
What is a G53 LED bulb?
G53 LED lamps are the economical and durable replacements for halogen lamps with the same lamp base / fitting. The name of this light has to do with the distance between the two pins: 53 millimeters. In appearance, these LED lights resemble a flying saucer / a UFO. An important feature of these LED lights is the very high colour rendering of 90-99Ra. This ensures that colours come alive and are displayed naturally, just like daylight. Want to know more about colour rendering? Read our blog: What is CRI / colour rendering index?
What do the letters AR111 mean at G53 LED Spotlights?
The number/letter combination AR111 means that this is the standard designation when it comes to the connection between a socket and a fixture. It also says something about the diameter of the lighting; namely 111 millimetres. The letters AR stand for Aluminium reflector. At Lampdirect, you are in the right place for buying AR111 LED lamps online. You are assured of the best lighting with a long guarantee. Choose from G53 products by top brands such as Noxion, Philips and Osram.
How long does a G53 LED Spot last?
The lifespan of G53 LED lighting is over 45000 hours! And that is considerably more than the average of 5000 hours that a G53 halogen lamp lasts. This means that you are assured of a very significant saving when it comes to energy costs. These savings can be as high as 90%! Another benefit is the cost of replacement and maintenance. Just think, when you replace a halogen spot after 5000 hours and a G53 LED Spot after 45000 hours, you actually have 9 halogen bulbs for the price of 1!
Do I need a transformer to use a G53 LED Spot?.
Yes, you have a transformer needed to use G53 lamps. This is because these lights cannot be connected directly to the mains (220-240V). Instead, G53 LED operates on 12 Volts. For your information: a transformer converts the current from 220-240V to 12V. This way you can always use your new G53 lighting in the best possible way.

What do I need to consider when choosing the right G53 (AR111) LED light fixture?
Good to know is that the G53 spotlights in our range have different degree angles, or beam angles. You can choose between small-degree beams (4 to 19 degrees) or medium-degree beams (24 to 45 degrees). This shows that this type of LED lamp is particularly suitable for accent lighting. Thanks to the clear and above all natural light, you can put certain objects or products completely in the spotlight. Think of a painting in a museum or fruit and vegetables in the supermarket.
Be sure to look closely at the colour temperature. These range from an atmospheric extra-warm white light - 2700K to a fresh and natural cool white light - 4000K.
