  • 1.  Gallery bulbs need a new home--SORAA Vivid AR111

    Posted 24 days ago

    Hi all! We have three brand new cases of lightbulbs from gallery fixtures that we no longer use-SORAA Vivid AR111 (specs here: https://www.soraa.com/products/24-AR111.php). If you happen to use these types of LED bulbs, send me an email! We'd love to find them a new home that is not the dumpster.

    Nancy, Rachel, and especially Matthew,

    The Soraa AR11 lamp does not easily fit into every low-voltage AR111 track head on the market. However, some manufacturers have kits that allow you to retrofit with this lamp. Michelle's description does not tell you the color temperature of the lamp (927 = 2700K, 930 = 3000K) You may also want to understand the "Vivid" attribute of this lamp before jumping in. This feature modifies the color spectrum of the lamp to make certain color appear more, well, vivid. You may or may not like that. Spend a little time reading up on Soraa.com before jumping in.

    That said, Michelle's offer is a sweet one!

    OOPs, good point there Steven, the color temperature. I assumed 3k, that's not a good assumption!

    Michelle what color temperature are the lamps? Our Litelamp fixtures can accommodate the size of these lamps, but we can only use the 3000 kelvin version.

    Bulbs are all spoken for! (I am just a little slow with responses!).
