Ourolux Superled Gold Lamps 60 6In

In this article I talk about 3 Ourolux Superled Gold Lamps 60 6In, acquired to be used with the Arge Majestic Lumina ceiling fan, We've talked in previous article.

Acquisition made in local businesses, at the same store where I purchased the Lâmpadas LED FLC 10W 6400K. Unfortunately the FLC with guarantee 5 years were over, so I ended up opting for the Superled Gold Ourolux 60 6In, they cost R$ 10,00 each, if memory serves me, and it is guaranteed for one year.

Check out some pictures of the Lâmpadas LED FLC 10W 6400K:

As or Arge Majestic Lumina ceiling fan uses 3 lamps, I figured 3 LED lamps of 6W would be sufficient for a good lighting.

The Ourolux uses the name Gold 60 to indicate that these lamps produce the same brightness that a 60W incandescent lamp. Interestingly the Lâmpadas LED FLC 10W 6400K also show in the package that are equivalent to a 60W incandescent.

Something does not close this account, some? The Ourolux lamps as more efficient than the FLC about to offer the same brightness with only 60% energy consumption? Or does the table of equivalence of the Ourolux is exaggerated?

As or Arge Majestic Lumina ceiling fan I was with 3 CFL bulbs of 20W, I decided to use the light sensor of the phone to measure the brightness before and after installing the 3 Ourolux Superled Gold Lamps 60.

With the lights off, the light sensor indicated 3 Lumens, coming from the little lighting coming through the cracks in the window.

With the 3 CFL bulbs of 20W lit, the light sensor of the phone, in the same position, just below the fan, indicated 231 Lumens.

After installation of the 3 Ourolux Superled Gold Lamps 60, the light sensor, still in the same position, went on to indicate 141 Lumens.

CFL bulbs of 20W typically are sold as equivalent to 60W incandescent. If this information is correct, It can be said that the Superled Ourolux Lamps passed away to deliver what they promise, offering only about 60% of light a 60W incandescent would offer.

Of course, my test is not nothing scientific. We need to consider that LED lamps are more directional than the CFL, and that given the position of luminaires, the light reaching the sensor was more sidebar. And there are many other factors that may be involved and were not considered. Yet the difference in luminosity seemed considerable.

I'm thinking about doing some tests with more lights, used alone, using the light sensor of the phone to measure the brightness, and using my Kill-a-Watt to measure the power factor and the actual consumption of each lamp, to make sure that it is compatible with the specification.

Please leave a comment if you have interest in these tests, because to accomplish them I need to buy a Socket-outlet and I will need to look for him in local businesses, since buying the Internet freight would end up costing more than the product.

It's been about to 40 days since the installation of the Ourolux Superled Gold Lamps 60 6In. By the time the three are working perfectly.

    A doubt, the manufacturer there is no reference related to amount of lumen lamp offers? In FLC/CFL there is also no?

    Another question which the lamp color temperature Ourolux and CLF?

    Ourolux lamp is manufactured in Brazil?

    Thank you.

      The Ourolux does not report the amount of lumens.
      The FLC reports 806 Lumens.
      The CFL I no longer have the packaging and I didn't take pictures. I think they're by OSRAM, but I don't find anything on their website.
      Color temperature is Ourolux 6400 k, the CFL does not say, but white also.
      Ourolux lamp is fabricated in China.

      I stopped, with the fall of the Real I think no longer compensating.

    I did a test with wattmeter and luxímetro of various Chinese and national lamps.
    The Chinese, from 9 I bought in stores/brands/various times, with the exception of 2, always had 30% the power indicated. Nationals indicated the correct.

    Regarding the brightness, the Chinese also had less than 30% than the declared by the Chinese vendor. Had a the Deal Extreme which indicated 1800lm and had only 266lm.

    The nationals were very close to the stated, always in the range of 75 the 100lm/watt.
    The da had 836lm of Taschibra 806 declared.

    […] Last June I spoke here in Skooter Blog on LED bulbs FLC 10W 6400 k which I acquired at local businesses. Some time later I went back and just found the Ourolux of 6W. […]
