Regarding this, what are mr16 bulbs used for?
MR16 light fixtures are commonly used in residential and commercial settings for directional lighting. The “M R” of “MR16” stands for multifaceted reflector, which is what controls the direction and spread of light cast from a MR16 lamp. MR16 light bulbs provide precise center beam intensity and beam control.
Subsequently, question is, what is the difference between mr11 and mr16? The MR11 has 2 sharp pins on the bottom of the bulb as well and is also a push fit into the fitting. It is a 12V lamp which requires a transformer, but what makes the difference between this and the MR16 is the width of the bulb. This measures 35mm across the face of the bulb.
Also know, can I replace mr16 halogen with LED?
Can I swap my Halogen MR16 light bulbs for LED versions? Simple answer, yes. However it will take a bit of research. MR16s run on low voltage which means they require a transformer.
Can you replace 12v halogen bulbs with LED?
Fortunately, upgrading Halogen MR16s to LED is usually a painless affair, as most LED bulbs are now designed to retrofit to existing light fittings. All you have to do to swap your old bulbs out is remove them from the light fixture and fit the new, shiny bulbs in their place.
