Have you seen the size of these things.
The 20w version is almost 6 inches long and the 11w version is not much smaller. Not much good for your average light fitting at it sticks out horrendously.

But, cheap as chips, cheapest bulbs I think I've seen going ever. Heat added

I agree, a common problem with cheaper ones, but still worth buying as they can be saved for use out of the way, say in a hallway or a utility room or anywhere you aren't going to be looking at them, and save the more expensive better shaped ones for rooms where they are going to be more "on show" or won't stick out of a lampshade

It is a great deal, but by your reckoning, buying a pair of size 6 shoes when you are a size 10 just because they were cheap is the thing to do? :?

That's not quite true. I think by his reckoning he'd buy a pair of brown suede shoes when maybe he doesn't like brown suede shoes, but only if they're cheap and the right size.

Great deal, I snapped up a couple of boxes of the bulbs, didn't get any shoes though.

I prefer 20 Watt Versions. All the 11watt version that so say give an equal light output to a 60 watts simply dont. I find that the 20 Watt Versions give a light output equal to say 75 watts on a Traditional Bulb. So more light and only using 1/3 of the power of a 60 watt bulb.:thumbsup:

So what would I need to replace a 100W "normal, old fashioned" bulb? I have 2 in my daugters long thin bedroom wired on a dimmer.

SO I guess stage 1 is get a sparky in and remove the dimmer and replace with a normal light switch, or spend shed loads on the dimmable type of energy saving bulbs. (And there was me thinking I was saving energy by dimming the bulbs!!!)

Then stage 2 is to change the lampshades because the uplighters she has will not fit such a lengthy bulb in them.

Then stage 3 relax in my now permanent over bright room (Which on occasions I would like bright) and think of all the money I've saved. Don't think the government had my scenario in mind when they enforced this change on us all.

Here you go, under a fiver. http://www.qvsdirect.com/13W-Dimmable-CFL-Lamp-ES-pr-22704.html, or more expensive but same size as standard GLS on ebay, item number: 290278605363 for about a tenner delivered.

I get free ones from my electricity supplier ...

(Good deal though!)
#14
At the store I went to it was 'buy one - get two free', again for 20p - twin pack, so 6 bulbs for 20p :-)

So worth looking out for these too.

I picked some up from a large Tesco yesterday
I think you want E14/SES
They are made by GE and better quality than the Philips ones in Homebase that are £1.99
They are on 2 for 1, work out at £1.25 each, I had to hunt around for the ones I wanted though!

Thanks mate, but it's still too long at 125mm to fit an upligting lampshade! Seems I can't win.

can anyone suggest where one can get cheaper white, natural light energy saving bulbs rather then the pale yellow light emitting ones

Don't believe what the manufacturors say about any cfl's .
None of them are as bright as they say , they don't last anywhere near the rated hours if switched on and off often (even if left permanantly on ) . As for dimmable , don't bother at the moment , they may sort them but it's not so easy in these compacts - flourescents have been dimmable for years but only with using expensive control gear , difficult in a small lamp. Certainly don't bother with an unknown brand that say's dimmable . Megaman are actually quite a good brand and sell a lot as oem suppliers and they have recalled there 'dimmerable' lamps three times that i know of .
The government are trying to kid us with the envoironmentally friendly bit as well , why do we have to dispose of these at a proper recycling depot ?
However the deal is hot .

You can get daylight ones now , but difficult to find in the supermarkets . They will have a colder blueish hue to them if it says 2700 on the side of the box they will be 'warm' which is what you don't want .
Normal white would be 3500 but most people see these as yellowish also .
Look for 6500 - or higher , they should also say daylight (some manufacturors use different no's).

Yes, everywhere.
Given that you use the wattage somewhere near the suggested equivalent, in practice, go for about 21 or 23W for a 100W equivalent, as most people find them a little too low for that usually quoted, They are deliberately engineered to be at the yellow end (about 2700 or 2800K) of the scale somewhere nearer that of incandescent lamps, as otherwise they tend to be too white/blue!

Almost all fluorescent energy saving bulbs are similar, or even whiter than incandescent lamps, (read all about colour temperature here, it is a bit over technical though: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fluorescent_lamp#Color_rendering_index) so I have no idea how this reputation has come about, to me they are certainly no more yellow than incandescent lamps of an equivalent wattage, (use in a table lamp too if one is not bright enough). Maybe it s because they are more diffuse and cast less shadow? However if you want VIVID over-white ones, (don't blame me if they are so white it is like being on a photography shoot!) try the spiral ones from Asda - not the cheapest like these in this post, but only a couple of quid - they are small, tightly twisted & fit great in just about any shade, but so white (guessing about 6 or 7000K perhaps), it is like limelight, far too harsh for my taste, I have one on now, and I am finding it a bit much, but it does fit the shade well!

I find where I previously used 3x 60Watt bulbs I get much better light with 2x 11 Watt bulbs, in brightness and light quality..

I am concerned with the disposal and safety of these bulbs though. My elderly parents had a burnt out 11W bulb and didn't smell the burning smell in the room hours after the bulb burnt out. I haven't really heard anything other than vague "scare" stories that a damaged low energy bulb is very dangerous...

NOT TRUE:thinking:. I have seen special Dimmable Energy Saver Light Bulbs at Homebase, though they are exspensive at about £8 Each.

energy saving bulbs do 'work' with dimmer switches, but ... they're either on or off ... (or flickering! :) )

You can't dim them, you just need to put them up to full brightness. They suck really, better off keeping the proper filament bulbs in.

.....or do like anyone else would do, turn off the main light and put a lower powered lamp on.

How hard does this have to be? :?

there are and morrisons sell them too!

they are phillips eco bulbs (bottom shelf of bulb section). they are £3 each but i'm sure the 60w bayonett are bogof as, being the most popular size, they put them on promo 2 years ago but no-one bought them! so they left them on offer to get rid.
