By Alyssa Dalton
January 11, 2013 – Cree has released its new LM16 LED lamp, claiming to deliver the industry’s best centre beam candlepower for 25º beam angles for various applications in retail, hospitality and residential settings. According to Cree, the lamp uses up to 80% less energy and is designed to last up to eight times longer than traditional 50W halogen MR16 lamps to deliver a payback in less than 12 months. Available in two options, the Cree LM16 halogen equivalent delivers 620 lumens (consuming 9W) and the 35W halogen equivalent delivers 425 lumens (consuming 7W).
