Vintage / Antique / Edison Style Light Bulb

All shapes and sizes, bayonet and screw type fitting.
I got a 60w one, most wattage varies.
Compatible with dimmer switches.

Found in Cardiff Poundland, with its own shelving so might be nationwide.

For a pound your room could look like a edgy, independent cafe or microbrewery bar. If you wait long enough, tatted up bearded hipsters could start knocking on your door. X)

What exactly is the selling point of a 60W energy drainer lightbulb in 2016? oO
I'll be seeing the lowest price for 4-star petrol next.

The stupid hipsters bars with dozens in the ceiling really irks me though.

Should be fined, extreme waste of electricity. Specially when you can get fake led looking ones. If you're going to have that many nobody would notice, business should be held responsible etc.

These are not actually antique. They are LED bulbs made to look old fashioned. Typically they are rated A++ or similar. Your status as urban eco warrior can remain unblemished if you ignore the possible environmental impact of their manufacture - probably in a smog filled Chinese city we have never heard of.

Should have quoted the correct post, I was referring to the "hipster bars" post. Hence the word "typically. However having checked the legislation, it seems the EU ban doesn't apply to commercial use just home use, so obviously Poundland are selling these for offices and factories.

These aren't led, they're 60w filament. I know the type you mean though, similar looking but much lower wattage & A+.

Yeah they're in poundland because nobody wants them - plus you may think you're getting a bargain at a pound, but it'll cost you £60-80 in your first year on electric if you leave it on 100%, 4 hours a day would be £15 a year. Compare that to the ones that run an LED filament and cost around £5 in wilko and you're suddenly quids in!

On the upside they make good room heaters :)

OP. An update to the description would be helpful since no one seems quite sure what this is. Your picture is of LED filament bulbs but you said you got a 60watt one? Which makes no sense. So these are either LED filament or incandescent

Tungsten filament run at low brightness - to emulate vintage bulbs. They're not LED. I had a good look at them in my local the other day. Probably get very hot and make little light - as I said, good room heaters :)

I saw these in Birkenhead the other day - energy rating is E, that's why I didn't buy any. oO

No good for lighting anything unless you have about twenty in a row, more for decoration really.

I bought some of these Edison type filament bulbs from Amazon at around £1.70 each. They're very pretty and have become extremely popular over the last year or so. They do give off light obviously, but they are in no way designed for everyday inside use unless you group several together, and even then the light given off will be anything but dazzling.

I'd say they are probably equivalent to a 40w regular old fashioned incandescent at best, and probably nearer 25w (if such an incandescent bulb existed). I bought a dozen for outside lights and they're fantastic - very decorative, which is precisely what they are for. They give off a nice subtle light which is plenty for outside use. Costwise they are minimal to run for things like outside lights as they're not on anywhere near as much as inside lights.

As for power use, I've largely given up on low energy lights - I've replaced virtually all of mine with good old fashioned incandescent bulbs as I was sick of the poor light low energy bulbs gave off, plus they never lasted long and so any money saved through lower electricity bills was lost through having to keep replacing them at a much higher cost than incandescent bulbs.

So yeah, I'm no eco-warrior and like these lights. And for those that are concerned by my scant regard for energy consumption, I do my bit for saving energy through my methods for keeping the frost off of my expensive architectural shrubs and trees in the garden;

This is a fairly outdated view, modern LEDs are far superior to incandescent in just about every way. If you buy cheap poundland LEDs, you're going to suffer (if you're bothered) from things like poor output, flickering, and most importantly poor thermal management (also known as blowing up or breaking too soon!). But if you invest in well engineered branded bulbs (say, Philips) and match lumens like for like instead of believing the wattage "equivalents" on the box, you'll have no issues. If you don't like the "white" from LEDs then go with the new(ish) 3300K colour types that you are seeing everywhere now, this is the same colour balance as halogen bulbs.
