|Manufacturer||Havit (other LEDs from Havit)|
|Fitting Type||MR16 (other MR16 LEDs)|
|Light Type||Downlight (PAR)|
|Review Notes||This LED light uses the same generic case that is used by dozens of other cheap LED lights. The performance is very ordinary and it falls a long way short of it claims, despite its premium price.
The CRI value and efficiency are particularly woeful. The packaging claims that it is a direct replacement for a halogen, but at the same time makes a contradictory claim that a special LED driver is required (no driver is supplied with the globe). Our testing was done on a standard halogen transformer. It is likely the light would flicker less on a DC supply.

Graph notes: Shows the intensity of the light when viewed from different angles. Normal omni-directional globes have a fairly constant output all the way around (excepting directly above). Downlights have a narrow range at the bottom in which the light is emmited, this determines their angle.
Graph notes: Shows the breakdown of the LED light into its component colors. With short wavelength ultraviolet on the left and long wavelength infrared on the right. The green line represents the relative absolute strength of the light at each frequency, while the red line represents what the typical human eye would see. The human eye is most sensitive to green light, but much less sensitive to purples and deep reds.
Percent: 86%, Index: 0.265 (lower is better in both cases)
Graph notes: Shows variation in light output over 1/10th of a second, with relative light output on the Y axis and time on the X Axis. Measured with a photodiode connected to an Oscilloscope. Ideally the yellow line should be flat. Low frequency high amplitude waveforms mean there is a possibility of noticeable flicker, but sensitivity to flicker varies between people.
