The mirror conforms to ADA guidelines and is suitable for damp locations such as the bathroom, with an IP55 Rating (see IP55 Explained). It is also ETL listed. The light output is 2250 Lumens - roughly the same as a 150 Watt bulb - it can be thought of as the light of a 50 Watt bulb behind each double-vertical light band - bright, but not overwhelming. The electricity consumed is only 36 Watts. This is a hardwired mirror and requires an on-off switch or timer. It is non-dimmable.

IP55 Explained

IP Ratings - Ingress Protection and What it Means


IP Ratings are a classification of the degree of protection against the intrusion of objects including things like hands and fingers, dust, accidental contact, and water. The concept is to provide a more standardized and meaningful set of more specific descriptive terms other than vague marketing lingo, such as "waterproof".

The two digits after the letters "IP" in the rating have separate meanings. The first digit denotes protection against solids. The second digit deals with protection from liquids.
IP55's First digit - 5 - Protection Against Solids
Protection against any large surface of the body, such as the hand, fingers, small objects, tools, most wires, screws, etc, and most dust.

IP55's Second digit - 5 - Protection Against Liquids
Equipment is protected against the ingress of water including dripping water, water from a spray at any angle up to 60 degrees from the vertical, water splashing from any direction, and water from a nozzle (6.3mm) from any direction.

Color Temperature

Color Temperature Comparison



The color temperature of any light bulb, including LEDs is measured in degrees Kelvin ("K").  The higher the color temperature, the closer the light is to a clear blue sky day at 10,000° K.  A sunny day at noon has a color temperature of about 5,500° K.  A very bright cloud-covered day, where the sky registers a color temperatue of about 6,500° K., while a "regular" incandescent light bulb has a color temperature of about 3,000° K.

The color temperature of the lighting in your mirror may affect the way people see you in different situations.  It's best, therefore, to choose a lighted makeup mirror with a color temperature to approximate your most frequent environment.

Many of our LED mirrors have their color temperature specified. And some makeup mirrors have adjustable or switchable color temperatures.  For those where color temperature is not specified a reasonable guide is this: For incandescent bulbs, a color temperature of around 3,000° K. is normal.  Fluorescents and LEDs with no color temperature specification have color temperatures around 4,600° K. The chart below can serve as a guide.


If you're planning for an outdoor day, the higher the color temperature the better. For evenings on the town, try to get close to 3,000° K. And for general indoor lighting conditions, color temperatures around 4,500° K. provide the closest match.

About CRI

Color Rendering Index (CRI)

The color rendering index (CRI) is a measure of the ability of a light source to display the colors of various objects faithfully when compared the a natural light source. Light sources with a high CRI value are desirable in color-critical applications such as neonatal care and art restoration. Generally the higher the CRI, the more pleasing to the eye.

The highest possible CRI value is 100 and is frequently achieved by incandescent or "regular" light bulbs. Fluorescent "cool white" bulbs have a CRI of around 50 to 60, but some high-end multi-phosphor fluorescents can go up to 98. LEDs typically have an a CRI around 80, and better, more expensive LEDs can have CRIs up to 97 or 98.
