Is the light as hot as halogen?
Halogen lamps are notorious for the amount of heat they generate. LED bulbs in general don't produce anywhere near the amount of heat as halogens, but they still produce some heat. The ClearVue will get hot after running for long periods. Before touching the light or removing the ClearVue bulb, please allow at least 5 minutes for the bulb to cool.
Is the light as bright as halogen?
Yes, both halogen bulbs and ClearVue LED bulbs emit 25,000 Lux. They are a direct comparison in brightness. LEDs however provide better color accuracy for a crisp and clear view.
Shouldn't I just buy a new LED fixture?
No, ClearVue bulbs have been engineered to convert and emit light that is the same as if you purchased a new LED fixture.
How long will it last?
ClearVue has a lifespan of up to 15 years.
Will the light degrade over time?
No, ClearVue LEDs emit the same light on day 6000 as it does on day 1.
The focus spot size seems different.
Most fixtures have a focusing knob on the back of the reflector. Turning this knob will position the ClearVue differently within the reflector and change the dimensions of the light spot. Aim the light at the wall, and make adjustments to the focusing knob until the spot size is how you like it.
