Those who have Morrisons nearby will benefit from this offer :-

4 x Philips 8W energy saving bulbs = 99p :)
#2
Found these far too dim, ended up going for the Tesco 2 for £1.68 bulbs which are 100w equivalent. Abit more expensive but a much better bulb.
#3
Bought 18 of these for light fittings that take multiple bulbs - one of them needs 8. They are quite small for "low energy" bulbs so only look a little absurd. My estimate is these are really only about 40 Watt equivalent rather than 60, but using 5 or 8 at a time is OK. Good value if you have fittings that need multiple bulbs, otherwise they are a bit on the dim side.

Bought a single 20w one of these in John Lewis Bluewater last week for 35p....it says its the equivalent of 100w and is easily bright enough for the uplighing floor lamp in my living room. Might be an alternative if you need less than 3

i need to replace all my lampshades to fit engery savers in.

wish they would do a special offer on stupidly cheapo lamp shades!
#6
Anyone know if you can put an 11w energy saving bulb (equiv 60w) in a 40w max light shade? I'm guessing the equivalent to old bulbs is just based on light and not heat.
#7
i would imagine so, as its only an 11w bulb
#9
Interesting that some are finding too dim.

After the first 30 sec warm up, I am finding them too bright??

Good bargain, and smaller then I thought.

Its the heat which is the limit for a lamp shade. An ordinary light bulb is only about 10% efficient so a 40w bulb will give off 4w light, 36w heat.

Morrisons have own brand energy saver bulbs equiv to 40/60/100 watts in screw or bayonet 2 in box for 49p

Help................surely it gives out 40 watts of light and 400 wattsof heat..............for a consumption of 11 watts energy..............this is the nearest thing to perpetual motion..........of if you remember the film.....5 mile island............money for nothing and heat for free

No, the 11W "40W equivalent" low energy bulb will give out 4W of light and 7W of heat. The conventional bulb will give out 4W of light and 36W of heat, as AuctionSniper says.

As far as lamp shade ratings are concerned, you won't exceed a 40W one even with a "100W equivalent" (20W) low energy bulb.
#14
Just bought 6 of the ******s for £1.98.

They are a smaller than i thought and should be ideal for lamps.

Thanks for the post, has come in handy!
#15
what shape are these?
do they have any that wrap around on themselves rather than the old pointy style ones?
#16
good find:thumbsup:
#17
So by small..... does that mean they are no longer than standard bulbs?

i bagged some 20W (100W) ones and they are curly and about the same length as a standard bulb, so these fit in my lamshade, however, the cheapo 11w (60w) ones i bagged are too long so dont fit.
#18
You can put a 60W equivalent bulb into a shade with a rating of 40W.
The equivalence is worked out on the brightness of the bulb. It is the power consumption that determines the heat of any appliance or bulb, which in this case is only 11W.

BTW: Brightness is measured in Candela not in Watt. :thinking:
Wikipedia: The candela is the SI base unit of luminous intensity; that is, power emitted by a light source in a particular direction.

[COLOR="Magenta"]A really good offer is on at Lidl at the moment: Philips 11W energy saving bulb with the brightness of a 60W bulb for [SIZE="5"]£0.39 [/SIZE]
or better still [SIZE="5"] 5 for £0.50[/SIZE][/COLOR]:thumbsup:
