What Is an A60 Bulb?

An A60 bulb, simply put, is the most commonly used type of LED light bulb. Having been used since the early 20th century, these pear-shaped bulbs are usually found to have an Edison Screw or Bayonet cap base and have many practical applications.

Unlike more traditional incandescent bulbs, however, the latest advancements in LED technology allow for a much more efficient way of lighting a room, with modern A60 bulbs enjoying an increased lifespan of around 50,000 hours; meaning they last over four times longer than alternatives.

This makes them the ideal choice for long-lasting home lighting and energy savings. Whilst maintaining the familiar shape of a traditional bulb, A60 bulbs have the added advantage of an increased (and more even) light spread that you simply do not find with early plastic domed LEDs, or the more traditional incandescent bulbs of the past.

So, What Is a GLS A60 Light Bulb?

All of these numbers and abbreviations may appear confusing, but it really is quite simple: GLS simply stands for “general lighting service”. The “A” in A60 refers to the light bulb name “arbitrary”, with the “60” representing the diameter of the bulb at 60mm.

As aforementioned, GLS A60 light bulbs are typically pear-shaped, come fitted with either an Edison Screw or a Bayonet cap and have a wide variety of applications making them a perfect and cost-efficient choice for almost any home lighting project.

With an almost unrivalled lifespan and an impressive light spread for such a small bulb, it’s no wonder that our GLS A60 bulbs are a popular choice and some of the best on the market.

What You Should Consider When Choosing Your A60 LED Bulb?

The Colour of Your Bulb

Traditional incandescent bulbs output a warm, yellow hue, whereas LEDs are available in a variety of vibrant colours. For your home, however, you’re likely going to be wanting to opt for a warmer hue, similar to an incandescent bulb.

Non-dimmable bulbs

Due to their circuitry, many A60 LED bulbs are incompatible with traditional dimming switches, meaning that you may have to replace the switch if you want to be able to dim your bulb.

You Get What You Pay For

Whilst more expensive up front, A60 LED bulbs are cheaper to operate in the long run and are far more efficient than their traditional counterparts.

In other words, they are an excellent investment, so don’t let the higher price point put you off.

Benefits of Opting for LED A60 Bulbs

There are many benefits to LED lighting, which makes it a great alternative to more traditional incandescent bulbs.

Firstly, LED bulbs have a far superior lifespan, clocking in at an impressive 50,000 hours (almost five times longer than the incandescent alternatives).

Another advantage LED A60 bulbs have is that they are able to operate in colder environments, without compromising the intensity of their light. This is often a massive problem for incandescent bulbs, which usually do not operate efficiently in cold conditions.

What the stats say:
LED bulbs are also highly energy efficient, producing less waste light than other solutions, meaning you can improve your energy savings by up to 70-90% when opting for LEDs, which can save you up to £400 every year.
