Product Overview

Easily convert a standard 6 in. incandescent recessed housing into an energy-efficient floodlight with the Philips LED Retrofit Downlight. Class-leading light distribution comes courtesy of a patented faceted optic diffuser, throwing off a soft, wide beam ideal for general room lighting in kitchens, living rooms, bedrooms or anyplace where exceptionally long-life, bright lighting is desired. Using just 9 watts of power, this lamp draws 86% less energy than a standard 65 watt BR30 incandescent flood bulb while producing 620 lumens of light output. It's equipped with integrated trim and a medium-base socket adapter that allows you to quickly replace the bulb and trim of your existing housing for a sleek, contemporary upgrade. Fully dimmable, it retains its soft white color temperature (2700K) even when brightness is throttled back.

  • Brightness: 620 lumens
  • Estimated yearly energy cost: $1.08 (based on 3 hours/day, 11¢/kWh; cost depends on rates and use)
  • Life: 40,000 hours or 36.5 years (based on 3 hours/day)
  • Light appearance: 2700K (soft white)
  • Energy used: 9 watts (equivalent to a 65 watt standard incandescent light bulb)
  • Suitable for use in type-IC recessed housings (housing may be covered with insulation)
  • Dimmable with electronic Low-Voltage (ELV) dimmers
  • Meets minimum federal efficiency standards for Energy Star certification
  • LED technology is a prudent choice for hard-to-reach fixtures, as its long life expectancy keeps replacement chores to a minimum

Lutron CL rated dimmer. Essentially you will need a dimmer that is CL rated or LED rated, CL being the more common terminology. There will be an adjustment wheel or slid piece on the front of the dimmer which is used to set your "low end trim", this prevents the light from flickering when you dim it or turning off.

Lutron CL rated dimmer. Essentially you will need a dimmer that is CL rated or LED rated, CL being the more common terminology. There will be an adjustment wheel or slid piece on the front of the dimmer which is used to set your "low end trim", this prevents the light from flickering when you dim it or turning off. LED works much differently than incandescent. With typical dimmer you reduce the wattage as you dim, LED you are reducing the amount of pulses per second.
I have seen LED products work with incandescent dimmers, it will however diminish the lifespan of the LED product and will not allow for full dimming range.
To set the low level trim turn the switch on and put the dimmer to its lowest point. Then turn the wheel or adjustment piece clockwise until the light is on and not flickering

Answer: 
While not positive that it will I would buy one and check. Most retrofit kits come with two places for the friction clips or ears and can be moved in or out for 5" & 6" housings.
Another option is making some slight field modifications, you know that the trim will cover the hole as 6" is bigger than 6" so at that point it is just a matter of figuring out how to get it in there.

Hey awong,
No where in the specs did I see that this could fit a 5 inch recessed housing, but I did see another that could.
This version is sold at your local Home Depot and can work in 5 inch housings, below is the link:

Can I wire this direct to a 110 connection instead of using the medium base adapter?

This question is from 65W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) Recessed Retrofit Down LED Light
Asked by
Biddeford, Maine
Read all my Q&A
July 21, 2014
I'm thinking of buying several of these and putting them into a basement space, but I'd be looking to wire them directly into a 110 loop. So I'd cut off the socket adapter and wire it direct with wire caps. I've never worked with LED before, so I'm just confirming that it will accept a direct 110 connection.

Also, does it include any kind of mounting bracket? I'm thinking probably not as it's intended to be mounted in a standard recessed 6" recessed can.

Thank you.

Yes you can wire them to a switched or dimmer controlled circuit. Just cut the screw-in adapter off and wire nut the light directly to the hot wire (black wire) and the neutral (white wire). It's best to turn the circuit off first because the small arc created if hooked up hot could fry the electronics controlling the led.

Answer: 
Yes, you can hard wire the unit. There is a inline male/ female connector that removes the light bulb base adapter. You could simply cut off the bulb base adapter and hard wire the cut ends to the hot and neutral, then connect the fixture using the inline connector - very easy to do .

LED's produce no heat. The cans should be sealed to prevent insulation from getting into you home anyway. I have blown insulation, and never went into the attic for any part of the installation of these light.

65W Equivalent Soft White (2700K) Recessed Retrofit Down LED Light is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 56.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great lighting but a couple issues The lights were very easy to install and give a lot of warm lighting. A couple issues I encountered: 1) The "trim" rings are pretty small and will cover a can light installed tight with no space. Unfortunately I had a couple of can lights where the hole was slightly larger than the can and the light did not cover the hole completely. I called and asked if there were wider trim rings that could be purchased and was told there were not. 2) I installed a dimmer that was specifically for LED or CFL lighting but when I installed it the lights flashed and I had to put in a regular toggle switch. It could be a dimmer issue but I was very disappointed ( the dimmer cast $30).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sale on energy efficient lighting! The light is sufficient and pleasant, and if they last as long and use as little power as predicted, they will prove to be a great value. The "screw in" aspect of installation obviously makes it easier than actually having to do wiring. The only problem is that the lip/edge of the lights is narrow and was not wide enough to completely cover the holes in the ceiling from our previoius lights. (They were the size that these are supposed to replace.) Fortunately the lip from our old lights was completely and easily removed (unlike these lights), and could be used with these lights to cover the hole. This worked well, but looks a little bit strange with the double lip/edge on the lights, and allows a bit of light to "escape" around the edge at the ceiling. However, overall we are very pleased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wished I had bought these sooner I picked these lights up online when they were on sale. I have always been skeptical about whether LED lights would work as well as the incandescent or fluorescent bulbs. Let's just say that I was pleasantly surprised. They even thought to put a clip in the middle of the wires to make it easier to install. Our house was built in the 60's and the kitchen remodeled in the past 10 years. With 9 recessed lights in the kitchen, the old bulbs created heat in the room that went unnoticed until I installed these replacements. My wife didn't even notice a difference in the output of light until I told her that I had swapped out the old bulbs for the LEDs. We look forward to recouping the cost of the lights through energy savings both for the lights themselves and the lack of heat output.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor installation design. Cree is better Purchased 20 of these for a retrofit. Although the light is nice and bright the installation design is poorly engineered. The tension springs pop off the lights very easily during install and don't hold the light up well enough against the trim ring. I took them all back and got the cree models.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I can see clearly now! I just replaced nine (9) of my homes traditional flood light style recessed light units with these Philips LED units. Installation was very simple with no tools required. Beginning to end took approximately 5 minutes each. The new LED retrofit units fit like a glove and give off much better light. For that reason in some areas I replaced the standard single pole switch with a dimmer switch. I am extremely pleased with these LED lights and even more pleased that they were an easy DIY installation!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from not as expected face of the lamp is textured; which is different from most LED retrofits, that are plain white. Since i had already installed plain white throughout my house, these different glass face did not look right in my situation. they would be fine if you used only this style together and not mixed the face style. noting at all wrong with the light; just a different face i wa snot expecting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to install and makes big improvement! We have a 1980 home with recessed canned lights. When Home Depot had these on sale I went for a change. WOW what a difference. Not only is the lens attractive but the degree of light improvement was like going to a 100 watt bulb because it's no longer filtering through a tunnel. I am so excited for the new look after all these years plus we'll save money on the electricity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solved my lighting problem In our laundry room, we had a single recessed light that didn't provide nearly enough light for the small room.. I stumbled across this light, which was on sale, so I figured I'd give it a try and ordered it. Installation was a snap. There is a small plug that allows you to install the adapter in the light socket without having to "spin" the whole light. Once screwed in, just connect the plug and slip the light up into the housing. The light is held into the housing by (2) spring clips that are attached to the light. I did bend them slightly to give me a tighter fit. It took me longer to find the step stool than to install the light. I found the brightness of the light to be a big improvement and lights the entire room quite well. The light gives a nice finished appearance.
