What is a Changeable LED lamp?

A changeable LED lamp is simply where you can replace the LED module separately from the light fitting. For example, our Beppe 400 post top lantern has multiple lamp options to choose from, with all options available in the same fitting.

What is an Integrated LED?

An integrated LED light fitting is where the LED module is built into the fitting and cannot be replaced separately. For example, our Portland solar bollard is a 3W light fitting that the LED module has specifically been built for, to suit its requirements as a solar powered light fitting.

When comparing changeable LED lamps with integrated LED fixtures, each option has its own set of benefits:

Benefits of Changeable LED Lamps:

  1. Flexibility: Changeable LED lamps allow you to replace only the LED module if it fails or if you want to upgrade to a different technology or colour temperature. This flexibility can be cost-effective in the long run, as you don’t need to replace the entire light fitting.
  2. Upgradability: Since the LED lamp can be replaced independently, you have the option to upgrade to newer, more efficient LED technology as it becomes available without replacing the entire fitting.
  3. Repairability: If there’s an issue with the LED lamp, you can simply replace it rather than having to discard the entire light fitting. This can save money and reduce waste by extending the lifespan of the light fitting.
  4. Customisation: Changeable LED lamps offer the ability to customise the lighting characteristics, such as colour temperature or brightness level, by simply swapping out the LED lamp for one with different specifications.

Benefits of Integrated LED Fixtures:

  1. Sleek Design: Integrated LED light fittings often have a more streamlined and aesthetically pleasing design. This can be particularly desirable in modern or minimalist settings.
  2. Seamless Integration: Integrated LED light fittings are designed to work as a cohesive unit, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility between the LED module and the light fitting. There’s no risk of mismatched components affecting performance.
  3. Space-Saving: Since the LED module is built into the fixture, integrated light fittings often have a more compact design, making them ideal for applications where space is limited or where a low-profile appearance is desired.
  4. Ease of Installation: Integrated LED light fittings often come pre-assembled, simplifying the installation process. There’s no need to worry about separately installing or replacing LED modules, reducing installation time and labour costs.


Ultimately, the choice between changeable LED lamps and integrated LED light fittings depends on factors such as your lighting requirements, budget, design preferences, and long-term maintenance considerations. Both options offer distinct benefits, so it’s essential to weigh them against your specific needs to make the best decision.
