Soraa Expands LED with PAR30s & PAR38s

Soraa Expands LED with PAR30s & PAR38s

Soraa, the LED lighting company who is best known for their line of high quality MR16 LED light bulbs, has expanded into the increasingly competitive category of (parabolic aluminized reflector) PAR flood and spot lights.  They will be available in PAR38 as well as PAR30 bulb shapes with the PAR30 lamps to be sold as both short neck and long neck variations.  These new lamps from Soraa provide some key competitive differences which could make it the new choice for home and businesses looking to provide better color reproduction and tighter light beams for their next flood or spot lighting project.

Soraa versus the Competition

Despite all of the technology that goes into LED light bulbs today many Soraa sets themselves apart from other brands selling PAR30 and PAR38 LED light bulbs in three distinct ways.

High Color Rendering Index

Other brands sell PAR30 and PAR38 LED lamps with a color rendering index (CRI) of 82 or 85 however Soraa provides options with a CRI of 95 which produces truer colors when compared to other competing products.  This becomes incredibly helpful when you want to really show off the varying array of colors which could make sense in a kitchen, car dealership or art gallery.  High CRI LED light bulbs aren't just good to provide better color rendering but in California, they are also required for all permanently wired LED fixtures as a result of the updated Title 24 Energy Efficiency Standards.

Better Beams

Soraa uses their Point Source Optics to generate a tight beam of light which prevents the shadows created by the light to be cast unevenly.  With Point Source Optics, Soraa is able to use a concentrated  light along with the help of their proprietary lenses to create a more focused light which is advantageous when used for spot and flood light applications.


Typically when you decide that you want to go from a 3000K light to a 2400K light that means you suddenly have to pay the expense for a completely new bulb.  With Soraa's line of SNAP SYSTEM™ covers you're able to not only change the color temperature but you're also able to change the beam spread of your PAR30 or PAR38 Soraa LED light bulb.  This lowers the cost of making changes in the future which helps with the overall cost effectiveness of upgrading to LED for your project.


Interested consumers have been able to pre-order Soraa PAR30 short and long neck and PAR38 LED lamps from 1000Bulbs.com since August 1, 2014.  The bulb will be available in early September and will ship at that time.  Eager customers are already placing orders in order to ensure that they're able to get their hands on these LED light bulbs as quickly as possible.  SNAP SYSTEM™ covers for the PAR30 and PAR38 bulbs won't be available from Soraa until Fall 2014.
