I just got 6 in this morning. 99p each. when you buy 3 for £1.
#2
I know that Morrisons were doing four for a pound last week but not sure if that offer still on....

Still a good offer anyhow :w00t:
#3
good deal, thanks
#4
Im all for saving energy etc, and bringing bills down ie loft insulated, cavity wall done, had a high effieincy condensing boiler installed last august.

Also try and turn off any lights not used, and devices on standby, also when the washer and dryer broke got a rated appliances.

now to my point, these bulbs are good but where the hell can i get the same priced bulbs but with a screw thread as i dont have baonet (spelling) fittings also some threaded ones are different sizes
#5
Thanks for this, my dad loves these light bulb deals lol :thumbsup:

Thanks for this, my dad loves these light bulb deals lol :thumbsup:


i used to like these bulbs too........................till i read in today's metro they contain high levles of mercury and if you break one open you should open all windows and immediately leave the room and not return for 10 to 15 minutes :w00t:
banned#7
Its not that Highly toxic but its the build up over a long time !! For example breaking a light bulb every week
#8
Morrisons had the screwed ones (large and small screws) a couple of weeks ago- 2 for 49p, I know cos I bought them by mistake. doh.

This annoys me greatly as well.

I only use lamps to light up my rooms, and all lamps are of the screw-in variety. The cheapest bulb I saw in Sainsbury's was around £3...and, as much as I'd like to use energy saving lightbulbs, I'm not prepared to pay that when bayonet ones are so cheap in comparison.

I disagree, all these bulbs do leak mercury over time, and mercury is a BIG no no for me. You should watch the video on youtube of what mercury does to your neurones, they just shrivel up like no tomorrow.

Plus Energy Saving Bulbs aren't as bright and cause more eye strain then normal bulbs, this also effects a persons stress levels (plus how they influence animals natural mating cycles, but I'll not get into that).

I hate that the government are forcing normal light bulbs out, hopefully there will be a good alternative by then, but for now, stick with normal light bulbs, don't sacrifice your brain, eyesight, and mood for the environment.

For the sake of yours and your family's good health, don't buy these.

I got a couple of screw type fitting Philips energy saver bulbs from Homebase for 99p each.
#16
Manny, I would say you're making some spurious claims there. I think I would be more concerned about mercury in food than bulbs. Get the right wattage (they do exist) and these bulbs can be pretty fab. I'm in a room with an incandescent bulb atm and that's extremely dim. Should I write the technology off? No, brighter ones are available.

I'd be interested to see your 'compact fluorescent bulbs cause stress' papers.

Admittedly I'm not backing up what I'm saying here but I am short of time. Climate change and energy usage are important. Good luck with having a 'brain, eyesight, and mood' if you don't have food, land or water (taking thing to an extreme, but complete neuronal decay is fairly).
#17
Tesco have a BOGOF on all Energy saving bulbs ..
#18
shame these arent 100w equivalent ones. These are too dim unfortunately. 100w equivalent ones seem ok though.
#19
Hi Ho...have to buy candles then or whacking great fluorescent tubes as they're doing away with 'normal' bulbs. :?

Don't forget that you can't eat fish or have amalgam fillings either :whistling:

Thanks Brookydave and Edi for confirming Morrisons offer was still on, Morrisons did have quite a good selection as you have to rummage to make sure you get the right cap

That's fine if you live near a morrisons :thumbsup:

Sainsburys is accessible to more people. :)

Be careful, some low energy bulbs can interfere with the infrared on tv's. Watch out for channel jumping etc.
Philips are good though.

Might help you out, but can work out pricey.

They are also ina ll the convienence stores so you can get this offer in the Sainsbury's Local and Centrals although you may have to ask as they come in a shipper which could be put anywhere in the store
#23
I think they have about 5mg of murcery in them. I'm not sure whether or not that amount can cause any serious damage but if you break one, make sure you do not touch it because it absorbs through the skin and the vapour is quite nasty. I've been in a room with about 100g of the **** and it did'nt do me in but it was well ventillated, Those long tube lights found in kitchens/garages and the workplace also contain mercuy by the way. It depends what type it is aswell....anyway you can google it if your worried.

I think its a good deal (even better if you can get them at morrisons) and should save a little bit of money especially with all the energy price increases!!

I'm not going to backup my views and opinions like you're not. I'm sure anyone that is hugely concerned would look into the subject by googling it, its your choices and health that may be at risk.

However people like me who do not want to use these bulbs, however paranoid you may think we be, are forcibly getting our freedom to choose otherwise, taken away, in the not too near distant future. But thats because the government thinks they know what is best for the people, and those who support them, don't see anything wrong in taking away the rights of the minority just because they are the majority that agrees.

I personally think Global Warming is a natural cycle of the earth and whether we are contributing to it or not, it can't be stopped. They say even if the whole West met carbon standards, China by 2020 would have made up for that.

Morrisons offer still ON.. 4 x 8W bulbs for 99p !

Actually, they are not the same bulbs. The ones in Morrisons are 8W --> 40W equiv according to the above post.

The ones in Sainsburys are 11W --> 60W equiv.:thumbsup:

Thanks

Just as an aside West + China > China. Warming due to emissions of west + Those of China > Warming due to China's alone. Remarkably convenient to take the view that we can't do anything about it when it's something so big as the planet. I haven't seen any evidence to suggest it's natural, at least, not good evidence. I've seen a lot that suggests otherwise. Anyhow, not the time or place, apologies *leaves planet*

Sorry to go off the deal but can i ask where you have seen any evidence that Global warming isn't natural. There are hundreds of scientists screeming that it is and the evedence is there if you take the time to look for it. The planet has heated up and dropped back into an ice age many times. We as people giving off CO2 are good for the planet. It helps plants and trees grow which give off oxygen. Last year was the coldest in the last 7 and have you notices how they are getting snow in places like Iran. Ice storms all over America??. Make up your own mind.

I guess you get all your info from the news and believe what politisions and presenters tell you and not scientists.

My girlfriend gets horrible migraines when we use these bulbs. It took me about 4 hours of research to find the cause after the doctors couldn't tell us. We haven't used them for a coulple of months now and she's cured.

I bet Al Gore doesn't use 1 in any of his 6 houses that each use 8 times more energy that the average home. Thay don't tell you that on the news do they?

Without meaning to be too bold here, I'm well aware of the graphs and causality, the history of world carbon levels etc. I know they have been *much higher* in the past. The issue here is that we've restricted habitat ranges and changed the surface of the planet so much while simultaneously becoming reliant on a huge proportion of its productivity that the system is finely balanced. We are dumping lots of unnatural CO2 (etc) into the atmosphere precipitating an unnatural change in temperatures.

To those who state 'but blah has been like this in the past and we're still here' I would point out that many things aren't. I don't believe that anyone's suggesting that climate change will cause complete obliteration of life in the foreseeable future just that we will have our populations reduced, lose a number of species, witness the redistribution of diseases and restrict our economic growth. This could occur naturally or unnaturally. Either way I think it would be a good idea to try and reduce the change, assuming you like people, of course.

On the issue of 'ice storms' and such. Weather systems are complex. Are you stating that the entire world, on average was cooler last year? Or just some part of it? Britain has had a number of record years recently. One year bucking a trend is by no means significant anyway, do remember stochasticity.

As for the evidence, I will go out of my way to do so (and of course I will check the journals, not just those evil news empires).

I'm willing to take you up on your bet regarding Al Gore's lighting.

Defensively yours,

Leighonigar.

[the migraine thing is possible. I would imagine that these bulbs, like regular fluorescents, flash 50 times a second or whatever. This doesn't matter to most people as they don't notice].

Hi Leighonigar.

Interesting to hear your sensible comments. Although i detect a small amount of sarcasm in the evil news empires part.

While i can only agree with you that it does seem as if we are damaging the planet with unnatural gases. I ask. Are you?? Am I?? Is anyone you know?? the majority of pollution is from huge industry's, not from individual people.

My point is, I as much as the next person wants a better, cleaner planet but i already do my part and its my choice. Its not forced on me by the government. (This is a law being made by the EU) and all it does is force the average middle class to save energy and pay more for what we use so the cooperate elite can use it themselves.

Think of this. Before mankind, huge forest fires would engulf the planet regularly with nothing to stop them. Volcano's spew enormous chemicals into the atmosphere. All these things give off pollutants and have small effects on the climate. Everything we do effects the planet but we are part of this planet and everything we use is from the earth. There's nothing unnatural about it.

People go along with these new schemes that the government put out because they think their doing the right thing but all we're doing is losing our rights to make our own choices as free people. Smoking ban (I'm a non smoker), energy, recycling, tax, war, more tax, more war. How much pollution do you think the never ending war is producing? and we worry about light bulbs:oops:

P.S. About health. look at the amount of scientists that are warning that the light omitted from these bulbs is harmful to the eye's. They've been proven to cause eye strain. I own a business and we've always had to have diffusers on florescent tubes because of the intensity of the light. These energy efficient bulbs are completely exposed.

Several points in response.

The 'evil' thing was really just a reflection on what seemed to be the suggestion that they were there to deliberately mislead. Of course they have an agenda - to make money and to have viewers/readers but generally they at least take (often ill informed) slants on the truth.

On the 'Before mankind, huge forest fires would engulf the planet regularly with nothing to stop them' comment. As far as I know most huge forest fires are caused by man. Fire is a part of many natural ecosystems required by some plant seeds before germination. Man tends to extinguish fire (when they can) leading to the build up of unnaturally large stocks of fuel. These stocks are what facilitates large fires, in the main and it's a man-made problem. Note, I'm not saying all big fires are man-induced, just many or most.

What we do is thought of as 'unnatural' because we place ourselves above the rest of the organismal universe. If you don't do this the words have no meaning, except when referring to hypothetical violations of [natural] universal laws. I understand your position and of course we are just animals but we alone build power stations and drive cars.

I agree that in the main choice is an ideal. I consider myself extremely liberal. Where the advantage is, at least in part, distant from the inducer of the advantage he/she (consumer here) might need some guidance. People are in the main very short sighted. An incandescent bulb is cheaper initially and that's what people see, so they buy them. Additionally I don't think there are any plans to completely stop production of old style bulbs, just to make them less convenient to buy.

We as minions, barring revolution, have two means of pressure. The vote and money. The way we distribute these defines, at least in some small way what those people with the power do. By buying CF lights, using a 'green' energy supplier and by voting for a party with a better record and manifesto on such issues you slowly make a difference, you bring things to attention. If people take a 'what can I do?' attitude they, with a shrug of the shoulders, ensure nothing gets done and their voice goes unheard.

This is why you should buy energy saving bulbs [and perhaps haul Blair, Bush in front of a serious court re: Iraq].

We may be on the wrong site to be discussing this. I'll stop now.

You seem like a very inteligent person. I would very much like to recomend you watch a film called ZEITGEIST. You can actually watch the film live streaming here
http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5547481422995115331
This film is spreading all over the world. The creator will supply it for free to anybody who wants to show it to others.

I would be very interested to here what you think of it.

You may see how i have come to my conclusions
#33
Please all ignore the above ill-informed scare mongering.

If any of you have silver (amalgam) fillings then you are exposing your body to more significant amounts of mercury (and its still 100's of times lower than the lowest safety guidleline levels) than 100's of energy saving lightbulbs!

As for the "they are not as bright" well its not that they are not as bright its that they emit a slightly different light frequency which may make them appear to be not as bright therefore simply put a 60 watt equivalent where you had a 40 watt standard bulb before etc.

Bottom line is they are better for your fuel bills - last longer and you are doing your bit for the environment.

By the way havent noticed our cats "mating" patterns alter over the past 10 years that we have been using them!!!

Scare mongering, HA, your so worried about global warming and saving the planet, I really wonder who's been effected by scare mongering; I'm sure you didn't naturally think the planet and our species were heading to extinction until you were told; over and over again.

I'm sure that orange additive in Smarties was just scare mongering before, oh wait, the FDA says, after concerned parents were told all additives are proven safe again and again, that this does make children go loopy. Plus all the other additive disputes that go on like Aspartame and MSG.

Amalgam fillings are a very controversial subject and many have complained of symptoms because of them.

I think the "possible" risks outweigh the "possible" advantages. You shouldn't have to sacrifice your brain, eyes, and health for the environment.

I'm guessing your cats are neutered . :p

You know, a lot of people do think that off their own bat. Secondly I'm not sure anyone's suggested when we're going to go extinct, it's hard to predict and we're an adaptable species. We'll be extinct one day, who knows how soon. On the being told front, research and observation should be suppressed? We are warming, we're contributing to that warming and a lot of research has gone into observing and predicting the effects that that this climate change is/will be having on the environment. It's not all scare mongering. What it is really depends on what you want the world to look like in 50, 100, 1000 years time.
#36
Well said manny.

Quick, ban kitchen utensils so nobody can stab you. While your at it ban sticks so nobody can hit you over the head with one and kill you.

I wonder how long it will be before people are scared into not speaking to anyone else because they might shoot or stab you.

Just stay home and watch T.V. Don't let anyone else tell you anything. Its safer that way! Just don't use too much energy while your at it, because that will save the planet that you see on the telly.
