LED Light bulbs £3.99 @ Lidl

OperateOnMeOperateOnMe

Cheapest LED lightbulb deal I have found, starting instore at LIDL from Monday, get them whilst they last!!!!
* 18 LEDs in each bulb
* Rated life (hrs): 30,000
* Choose from:
- GU10 LED bulb 1W, 230V
- E14 LED bulb 1W, 230V
- E27 LED bulb 1W, 230V
- MR16 GU5.3 LED bulb 1.2W, 12V

They might be 1W but for LED lightbulbs that is really bright and energy efficient
I estimate they are equivalent to 40W old style light bulbs (non-energy efficient)

    oops forgot to mention E14 is the same as 'SES' and GU10 are the common Halogen spotlights quite a few people have

    So not very bright then:thinking: I'm used to 100w or 150w bulbs

    This must be regional. You need to say which area this offer is. It is not on offer in West Yorkshire.

    They are more like equivalent to 10W

    Only good for display illumination totally useless for reading or anything else.

    No chance. Equivalent to 10-15w if you are lucky.

    Are these cheaper to run when compared to energy saving bulbs?

    Pet, It's like a lot of supermarket offers, its various areas, often most. For LIDL put your postcode in and see if your area has it!!! I can see Brum, London, Manx, even Norwich

    Tom, that is true, but it's only my estimate, I might be wrong because I have not tested them yet. Roughly from what I could figure out 5W is really bright (~100), 3W is bright (~60W) and 1W is not so bright (~40W) like this offer. It really depends on the actual quality of the LED. But some people, like me, with several SES spotlights, thinks this brighness is just perfect for the area the spotlights are in.

    I really do think LED lights are true energy saving lightbulbs rather than what is currently described as energy saving.

    We'll know by next Monday, it does depend on the Quality of the Light Emitting Diode (LED), I might be wrong but I thought these are decent quality ones

    p.s. if you find a better deal, please post

    I managed to get 10 CFL GU10s off ebay for £15, althought they've not arrived yet. Looking at energy saving spotlight specs is a minefield, its cheaper to just buy 2 GU10s from poundland and pay for the leccy they use. A decent replacement seems to be 8 quid or so usually, do you save that much?

    I have just replaced my old LED GU10 bulbs in the kitchen that had 18 LED's per bulb.

    They were not very bright but worked when they also had a proper non LED GU10 next to them.

    I have just bought some GU10 LED bulbs with 80 LED's in each bulb and they are very good. With them there is no need for any of the old style filament bulbs. They were quite expensive I paid £70 for 10 delivered, but they are only supposed to use 3W of power each.

    So the 10 spots in my kitchen will now be using 30W. They are very bright and you cannot stare at them directly without your eyes going funny like they do with a proper bulb. The 18 LED bulbs you can stare at all day and your eyes would be ok.

    That's really interesting but expected. As standard GU10 are 50W but Halogen (so brighter) and these are 18LED at 1W so not so bright (somewhere between 10-40W filament-equivalent, reading the above).

    I'm really amazed that you got LED lightbulbs at £7/each with 80 LEDs, how does that look?????? Or are the LEDs really small? Which store did you order from and can you post a picture, please. I'm really interested

    not a very exciting price. Asda's normal price for an LED GU10 is £4 for example. And 1w isn't going to be close to 40w equiv. they are quoted elsewhere as being same as 25w, and they are usually generous.

    Would you say they are of a similar brightness to 50w halogens? I need 4 bulbs either the same or brighter than 50w halogens, as it's the main lighting in the kitchen. I have looked at a few 80 LED lamps from different sellers but they all give different brightness levels ranging from 105 up to 160 lumens, despite all being 3 watts but on doing a bit of research it seems that you need an 11w LED to match a 50w halogen, which is around 850 lumens so now I'm totally confused! :?


    No I don't think they are as bright as a 50W.

    I have 10 80 LED bulbs in my kitchen and it it is fine. I would say they are about the equivalent of a 30W halogen.

    Thanks for that! :thumbsup: Looks like I'll have to wait for the technology to get a bit better and carry on paying out for 5 amp consumer fuses every time a bulb goes... :x

    I'm using 9w CFLs in my kitchen now, and they look good but only once they warm up. As this takes anything up to a minute, I've left a 50w in each set of 4 aiming at the cooker and sink.

    Lumen is what really matters for Brightness and is dependent on size and quality of LED!!!!
    Watts is what matters for energy saving

    Unfortunately, I travelled halfway accross Brum to get to a store, and they are sold-out!!!!! I couldn't be bothered to go to further cause I'll be there later in the week. Hopefully the next store will have one left

    These LED light bulbs are not the latest tech. Look for SMD LED bulbs, they use flat LED's, and the LED's last longer. The bulbs do cost more, but the LED's last longer than these LED's, which start to dim after a few months useage. The SMD LED's remain brighter for longer, and I think they look a bit better than these big old LED's.

    BTW - these bulbs will be equivalent to 10-15w max, and are more suited for ambient lighting rather than lighting a kitchen / bathroom.

    Now down to £1.99, I think it has become a bargain
