I am looking for as slim a profile led spot lights that I can get that allow dimmable bulbs.


I have noticed that you can get ones which you can change the bulbs as and when but the profile is wider than the ones which you cannot change the bulbs when they go ( have to change the whole unit)

Does anyone know of any places where I can get as slim lined as possible ones from ?

Would not the dimension of the lamp determine the dimensions of the fitting? so as all led lamps are pretty much the same size* you will not get one.

* mains led lamps are usually longer than 12v ones.

What is it you are trying to illuminate? Could you not use LED tape?

Sorry , I wan not clear. I did not mean the actual bulbs themselves. I meant a narrow profile for the metal bit that the bulb goes into and slots into the hole in the ceiling

The LED lamp needs to run cool so when fitted in a unit designed for tungsten lamps often the lamp needs cooling, however if you look at units designed for LED lamps or other energy saving lamps then the cooling fins are often included where it does not distract from the lamp.

The GX53 Image is not a spot light but because designed for energy saving lamps it does not have in the main massive cooling fins although it depends on the wattage used.

Most the LED lights today are not designed to have the actual LED renewable you have to renew whole lamp, the GX53 was originally designed for compact fluorescent the same with the much larger 2D lamps.

The GU10 and G5.3 both MR16 with low wattage bulbs you can get them without cooling fins, but as you go up in wattage then they need the cooling fins.
