10 Pack GU10 4W LED Beautiful Warm White Colour 40w Replacement for Halogen bulb with New Chip Technology with 2 Year Warranty [Energy Class A+]

I paid £31.16 for these in October and considered that decent then.
These are brighter than the 50w units they replaced and gave a good colour of light but Note that they cannot be used with dimmers.

Annual Cost for running 50 watt halogen / 2 hours day / 7 days a week @ 10p per kw
= (50/1000) x £0.10 x 2 x 365 = £3.65

Annual Cost for running 4 watt led bulb / 2 hours day / 7 days a week @ 10p per kw
= (4/1000) x £0.10 x 2 x 365 = £0.29

Saving for 1st year = £3.65 - £0.29 - (£24.84/10) = £0.87
Each year after the first, savings will be £3.36

hope this is helpful to some one

Good lamps, been using them for 4 months.

5w ones are £2.49 each in home bargains if you don't need so many.

Good price, but looking for cool white for our kitchen

Not good feedback on Amazon

Great price and thanks for showing the savings. We've got 16 spot lights in the kitchen and extension and it's good to see the savings on paper

I'd get the ones from home bargains as mentioned. They're 5W and 360 lumens whilst these are only 260. But these are an ok price compared to some on offer.

I can only comment that I purchased 20 bulbs 3 months ago and not a single problem with flicker or failure.
Just remember that these ones are not designed for use with dimmer switches.
74% of (413) people gave 4 stars or higher and amazon have reacted promptly where there have been failures..

These are cheaper if you click the '4 used and new' link on the right.

I've had 5 failures in these over the last 6 months - not great - returned for a refund

Can anyone suggest a 10 x LED set that is dim-able and at a good price please. ta

If you use in bathroom, remember to get correct fittings that protect from moisure. I had 2 fail in space of 3 months, and these were replaced free by company. I purchased correct fittings and had no problems for over 6 months.

Most of them are fakes, buy a known make and not from China

There are a lot of fakes out there and some are potentially lethal too. Look on youtube it's frightening. Buy a decent brand, and ask at electrical wholesalers too, sometimes they have good pricing for the decent kit.

philips 2w led is also very good. which use less energy but very bright light...it is very warm and pleasing to eyes
please try that as well nay be better than this

LEDHUT are an absolute rip off. But this deal isn't bad. However the warm isn't very warm 3000k (2700) is much better but harder to find. Also the reason they are about half or 2/3 the price of average is because they are LOW lumes! 250

Average for that wattage is 300 and the ones I bought recently output 350 and imo 320 is the lowest I would go to for lighting.

I thought the "watts" mean how bright it goes ? so why would you need 4w ? someone please correct me lol
poundland do 35w and 50w
the time you spent that much on those mightbl as well buy themnfrom poundland
I got some light bulbs from poundland and have lasted me 7 months so far

submerged

5w ones are £2.49 each in home bargains if you don't need so many.

picked up one yesterday ,daylight its old type led with small square lights but very effective using them outside on up/down lights
think they are 30k hours

Probably worth mentioning for anyone buying (new technology) lightbulbs, (whether LED/Fluro/filament), remember that the important specification for comparing each lightbulb is the LUMIN's (ie brightness!), not the wattage. Quoting the wattage just confuses the general public!! Only ever compare the Lumin's if you want to replace a lightbulb with a different technology, and not get a disappointingly dim room! These bulbs are 260 lumins which is fine, but not super bright.

Be careful, these types of bulbs were on watchdog the other week due to being poorly made and unsafe

Power consumption, measured in watts was historically the method used to describe light output (lumens) as most lamps were tungsten. LED lights are much more efficient and consequently a 4 watt LED will give similar lumen output to the 50w tungsten ones you mention yet use a fraction of the power.

I don't think your pound land bulbs are led


They did do led gu10 lamps but were low lumen out put

Tesco are getting rid of their 4w dimmables for only £2.50 each if dimming is needed.

Purchased a pack of these back in July for my kitchen, wouldn't say they were quite warm white, they are a little cool but have to say they have performed flawlessly with not a single fail or even a flicker.

Fair call, indeed Lumens it is!

Voted hot for price, but...
You have to be quite naive to expect them to last 2 years Cheap china production with massive failure rate. I would rather buy branded stuff, at least easier to deal with returns/replacements...

10p per kw - Who are you with?? Mine is 7p during economy 7 times.. Not when I use my lights though. Anyway this is a good deal, heat.

Regarding ratings for LED lamps: They include: Wattage - this should be what amount of power the lamp uses; Equivalent Wattage - this should be how bright a lamp is compared to an incandescent (filament non-energy saving) lamp, i.e. a lamp with 40W equivalent rating should be as bright as a 40W incandescent; Lumen Output - this should be how much light the lamp puts out - how bright it is.

Unfortunately manufacturers lie about the Wattage, Equivalent Wattage and Lumen Output. And as mentioned previously there are a huge amount of fake products out there.

If authority (UK Government/EU) wants to force us to use low energy lamps then maybe they should force manufacturers to be honest about the ratings that they state. There are still too many lies being made to con consumers.

These are cheaper? … These are cheaper? http://pages.ebay.com/link/?nav=item.view&alt=web&id=181624280304



that's like saying cotton is cheaper than silk.

I need standard fitting bulbs.

we're can I get them cheaper? ?

great find cheers op

Best thing about this deal was the tip-off from soled73Jan, finally gone for it & ordered 10 for kitchen diner so my wife will actually be allowed the lights on now. I have an account with wholesalers but they can't get down as low as this & nowhere near on warranty. Thank you.
