The Best MR16 LED Downlight Replacement

This MR16 LED is the latest model in the dependable Philips Master LED series. It's a direct replacement for all existing 12V MR16 downlights. Here's why we think it's the best MR16 LED bulb on the market:

  • Same brightness as 50 Watt halogens (85%+ energy savings).
  • Works in both dimmable and non-dimmable fittings.
  • Designed to work with all existing transformers.
  • You can replace them yourself - no electrician required.

Step 1 - Choose Your Preferred Colour Temperature

  • 2700K - a true warm white, just like a halogen * Popular *
  • 3000K - a slightly whiter and brighter colour * Popular *
  • 4000K - a cool white, more like a fluro tube.

Step 2 - Select the Right MR16 LED Beam Angle

  • 60˚ (wide beam) - for regular ceilings or where lights are spaced further apart * Popular *
  • 36˚ (narrow beam) - for high ceilings or where lights are close together

An MR16 LED From a Brand That You Can Trust

There are many MR16 LEDs on the market that simply do not deliver. They often don't last very long, have limited colour options, or aren't compatible with most transformers, to name just a few issues.

Here's what one of our customers had to say:

"I have tried some other LED bulbs from Bunnings and Kogan and had trouble with flickering etc. The Philips bulbs you supplied me are great: no flicker, bright light better than the halogens they replaced. Thanks."

Just Swap the MR16 Globe - No Electrician Required

Once your Philips Master LED's have arrived, all you need to do is swap the globes.

These lights will work with your existing fittings, dimmer switches, and transformers. In very rare cases, they may not work correctly with some transformer + dimmer combinations. If this happens, please see our troubleshooting advice in the 'FAQ' section below.

Get the Very Latest 6.5W Philips Master MR16 LED

Don't waste your money on older generations of this product still being offloaded by other retailers. Many others are still selling the 7W model that Philips replaced in mid-2021. The newest model (that we sell) has a lower power rating, lower profile, and even higher light output than the previous versions.

Philips MR16 LED Bulb Old Models vs New Model

The new model is now available in all variants.

The new model which we stock no longer has a protrusion on the front. As such, the black colour is no longer visible once in the light fitting. Furthermore, it has a higher colour rendition index (CRI) of 90, compared to 80 on the older models. A higher CRI means they produce a much higher quality of light.

Frequently Asked Questions - Philips MR16 LED

Will it work on non-dimmable circuits?

Yes, it works on both dimmable and non-dimmable circuits (with and without dimmers installed).

Will the MR16 LED work with my transformer?

Yes, it works with the vast majority of existing transformers (old and new).

Will the MR16 LED work with my dimmer?

Yes, it has extensive dimmer compatibility. Should there be a problem with your dimmer, there are several solutions available, such as:

  1. Leaving one halogen bulb in the circuit to bring up the load, or
  2. Using the 'Clipsal Load Correction Device' for Clipsal dimmers, or
  3. Replacing the dimmer with one that is known to work with LEDs (such as this LED dimmer), or
  4. Removing the dimmer switch.

Does the Philips LED MR16 work with C-Bus systems?

We've received good feedback from customers using the Master 7W on their C-Bus wired homes and businesses. But there's a wide variety of cbus dimmers & system designs so you may wish to try a few globes first before undertaking a full upgrade.

How do I calculate light spread?

Here's how to calculate the light spread diameter at floor level (in metres) for any ceiling height:

  • 36 degree MR16 bulb: ceiling height (in metres) x 0.650
  • 60 degree MR16 bulb: ceiling height (in metres) x 1.155

Will it fit in my existing downlight fitting?

Yes, we have encountered hardly any MR16 fittings that it does not fit into. If you are unsure, double-check the dimensions graphic and buy a few to try our first.

Do you have a complete list of old MR16 LED part numbers?

There have been about seven generations of this product, so it's a little hard to provide a complete list. You can rest assured that we only carry the latest stock. See current part numbers in the specs table above.

What other options are available?

See our LED downlights page for complete fitting upgrades, replacement transformers, LED dimmers, and more.

I’ll use you again as you lived up to your promise by providing exactly what I needed on time and competitively priced.

Andrew Markwick
Phillips Dimmable

Items came quickly and globes work well. They do dim but not as well as the original halogen globes

2700k version

Great bulb, fantastic light dispersion, lovely warm colour tone, works on a couple of our dimmer circuits however they won't go as dim as a halogen so you won't get that soft golden glow but otherwise I can't speak highly enough of these globes! Our kitchen feels so much brighter compared to the halogens we had previously, the whole house too, changed over 38 down lights to these, even the wife commented positively!

Great light

I tried several other bulbs (including cheaper phillips ones) and found all of them flickered. These ones work perfectly, very happy

Terrence Glover
