Specialist Dutch firm Ramselaar has developed two high-quality LED candle lamps, one the Rebel ES with a colour temperature of 2700K and a colour rendering index of 95. The secret to the warm light is an additional amber LED which allows the candle to match the colour of a real flame. Although the colour’s not on the black body locus, we did a side-by-side comparison with a real candle and are happy to say it’s a great match. Indeed these are some of the best candle lamps we’ve seen.
The sources don’t flicker, but Ramselaar says its museum and heritage customers want a consistent light which matches the period interior but doesn’t draw attention to itself.
