    I am looking for some top quality micro spot lights (led) for a new project. They need to be very small in diameter - no more than 1" dia, have a remote driver that fires on either 12Vac or 120Vac, be warm white at 3000K, high CRI of 80 or better, relatively high output - greater than 150 lumens, with 200 being ideal, and rated for outdoor use.

    I know of In-Lite but have never been impressed with their quality.

    Any ideas or suggestions are welcome.

    Thanks.

    James, here is a product I found a while back. They say they have warm white but I am waiting for a few samples. I think they run on DC current which wouldn't help you but you may want to verify. http://www.minim.is/thumbtack1.htm

    I am not sure what the lumen output is, more than likely its not enough.

    Thanks Tim, I appreciate the info. New product is seemingly sprouting up everywhere and I would have never found this.

    It is certainly an interesting looking product and along the right lines, but at only 18 lumens each, and with a potential CCT variability of 500K between units, I don't think it will work for this application.

    Let me know what you think once you have reviewed the samples.

    Thanks Richie. They have some interesting fixtures for sure. I would need a lot more information from them before I could specify them as they provide no technical information in regards to output, colour, L70, etc. Thanks for the info.

    Thanks djt. These are a bit too large for my needs. They are marketed here under the name magiclite. Very familiar with the offerings of NSL. Regards.

    I've used a couple of these in the past, and so far pretty good luck. http://www.atlanticwatergardens.com/lighting.html

    Of course there's no specs, but the color is fairly warm (the cold side of the claimed 3000K probably), and light output is good, though I cannot quantify it. Probably similar to a 10w halogen source? Cheap enough that you could afford to get one to try out firsthand.
