Answer: 
Says 500 on the package.
But i got a 120 lumen LED flashlight that blows the output on these away.
And thats just single LED versus the 4 that are in these bulbs.
So i'm not sure if all lumens are created equal :)

Answer: 
Super-bright LED's are still quite expensive. I'd say you are looking for upwards of 900 lumens. I've attached a chart giving equivalencies.

All of the LED bulbs that I have found with the MR16/GU3.5 two pin base are 16 volt, but I don't know if my light fixtures are 16 volt. Are all fixtures with the two pin base 16 volt?

Answer: 
Packaging says they are 12volt.
My fixtures were track light heads, removing the mount, the underside stated the voltage for the head. Check your fixture for similar labeling.

No. The fixtures in my condo are 110 volt. Had to find a specialty supplier for these. The ones I found were imported from Hong Kong.

I replaced 10 halogen 50W MR16 in my kitchen sealing with these bulbs. Everything seemed to work fine. But yesterday, I had occasion to leave them on for a couple of hours, and some of them kept turning off and later coming back on. Someone suggested that some of the bulbs may be defective, and someone else said maybe they were getting to hot in the Lightolier fixture. Please advise what I should do. Thanks.

Answer: 
A lot of LED bulbs say not to used in enclosed fixtures.
My old track light fixtures had glass lenses the old halogen bulbs sat behind.
I made sure not to use the lenses with the LED bulbs, the retaining wire was more than enough to hold them in place. I suspect the glass lenses on the halogen were more for safety.
If you're enclosing them, maybe you'll have luck if you can let them breathe a little. Read More

If you're enclosing them, maybe you'll have luck if you can let them breathe a little. But i think the bulbs are just flawed. I have 9 of them and have about a 60% success rate on the first day of using them. Some turn off after a few min, but will turn back on if i unplug/plug the fixture back in. A few burned out.

Customer Reviews

Rated 2.8 out of 5 by 22 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away from these At first these lights put out a nice bright light, however after a while they start flickering, dimming, and then they eventually fail. I replaced all my halogen mr16 bulbs in my kitchen with these and one by one they all keep failing. I think the problem with these bulbs is a design flaw because they have poor thermal management. The heat syncs are way too small and the bulb is very hot to the touch which is causing the electronic driver that's built in to the bulb to fail. I've been replacing these with the Phillips mr16 and have not had any problems with those most likely because they have a larger heat sync, but they're slightly more expensive. March 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Lightning Did not have the correct tips to stay in light fixtures. May 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LED outdoor accent light Economical and long lasting. Bright and generates almost no heat. May 3, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Unreliable When I first tried this bulb I was excited to find a replacement for my 50 watt halogen bulbs. I ended up buying 14 of them at nearly $18 a piece. Five of them have already failed. After 90 days the Home Depot will no longer refund your money and you'll have to deal with the manufacturer for the warranty. These bulbs are definitely unreliable. Save your money, or try a different brand. March 18, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Failes I replaced a bout a dozen halogen bulbs with these LED but they failed after a month... Don't seem to have a warrenttee January 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Light to replace a 12V Halogen fixture I had a ceiling track light go out and I found this funny light bulb with two prongs (a MR 16) This LED replaced that perfectly and has a nicer, brighter light. Would highly recommend this. November 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Inconsistent quality, purchased 5, 2 have failed after a couple weeks When working, the lights serve the intended purpose much better than the halogen bulbs they replaced. However, 2 of the 5 bulbs I purchased have completely failed within 2 weeks of use. Completely unacceptable. October 6, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FOR 12VAC USE ONLY Although I just purchased two units and installed them today, I already see a marketed difference form the halogen lights. The halogen units had a yellowish tint to them which at times can distort colors and of course they product heat. The LED units produce no heat at all and the color is much whiter with no yellowish distortion. The beam width is about 8' at a typical 8' ceiling. Beyond the 8' beam width, the light fades noticeably. In addition, I removed the glass lens that came with the light head to increase light clarity. Please keep in mind, these units only work on 12 VAC light heads and will not work on 120VAC heads. October 13, 2014
