Soraa now offers a 40-watt halogen-equivalent LED MR16 for outdoor, fully-enclosed, or non-ventilated fixtures. This "OUTDOOR LED MR16 lamp" leverages GaN on GaNTM technology to reportedly break thermal and ventilation barriers for high-performance landscape LED lighting.

Soraa, a developer of GaN on GaNTM - gallium nitride on gallium nitride - solid-state lighting technology, reports that this LED MR16 is the first LED lamp in its class appropriate for use in outdoor and enclosed fixtures.

Soraa's OUTDOOR MR16 lamp line is specifically designed and tested to operate in challenging environments, suitable for use in outdoor fixtures, or indoors in fully enclosed, recessed, or confined, non-ventilated track fixtures. Designed to replace standard 40-watt MR16 halogen lamps, the Soraa lamp is said to save 75 percent of the energy. It is available in 2,700 and 3,000K correlated color temperatures, providing halogen-equivalent brightness and light quality without requiring a mechanical fan.

According to Soraa, its proprietary GaN on GaNTM technology plays a significant role in the performance of the OUTDOOR LED MR16. Soraa's GaN crystal is up to one thousand times purer than GaN on sapphire or GaN on silicon carbide substrates. This technology advancement enables Soraa's OUTDOOR LED MR16 to overcome common ventilation and thermal design barriers, while still producing a reliable, high-performing, eye-pleasing and natural light.

Soraa's OUTDOOR LED MR16 lamp "has a stunning visual impact on my projects and the lamp itself sheds heat elegantly, a rare quality in outdoor LED lighting," said Jan Moyer, a leading landscape lighting designer. "I've compared my outdoor lighting projects using a competitor LED replacement lamp and a traditional halogen lamp, and I want all my lighting projects to look the way they do when lit with Soraa's OUTDOOR LED MR16."
