    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

    these must be new in (on hols this week).

    the 2 packs of these (7,11 & 20 watt) are on 3 for 20p so makes it the same as this offer but you get more choice

    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.

    I get free ones from my electricity supplier ...

    (Good deal though!)
    jezjones
    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!
