My first deal post so go easy people Cracking deal for 10 fixed downlights, reduced down from £30! Picked up a set of white a few days ago, I plan to put LED's in and ditch the halogen bulbs. I have looked everywhere and these are the cheapest by far!

Just watch as one review said LED bulbs didn't fit whichever he tried

They do fit, but avoid the fat type bulbs http://www.max-led.co.uk/res/foto/0/862.jpg

and go for the more traditional shaped similar to below

The gu5.3 ones are extra low voltage (12v) so you'd need a different transformer for LED as well as the LED lamp, not fire rated so would not recommend fitting these in any ceiling with a habitable room above

That's a good point Dave. I always prefer to fit the GU10 types then it saves additional power supplies

Could these be fitted in a bathroom?

I do have some similar in my bathroom, I'm not sure on the exact regs so might be worth having a google. I think you can fit these in some zones away from water contact of the bathroom but not above the shower etc. Someone else may be able to offer more concrete advice

was hot until ... reserved and paid for 3 packs from local wickes. just had call to say that none of them are actually in stock and i will have to be refunded. Nice to see that Wickes stock control is just as hopeless as B&Q's.

Oos down my way.

Got to payment and doesnt let me complete

Make sure u take id with you if u click and collect ! I went out and was passing so I popped in as received email saying ready to collect , snotty woman would not let me collect without Id yet I had the email on my phone ! Was standing her ground until I told her to cancel them then and she rang my phone luckily from details to confirm . Bloody jobsworth ! Or is it just wicks?

​def jobsworth, I've never had any trouble with click and collect.

I bought some 3 weeks ago but had a call from the store to say out of stock so ordered another set. This time store said fittings were missing. I decided not to bother posting deal on here after my experience but not dissing op as it is a great deal if u can get any Heat

​Think she doesn't really know her job as the txt message I got for my c&c mentions you only need your payment card. A form of ID is only needed if a third party is collecting the goods on your behalf.

"Your Wickes order ****** is ready for collection at*****. Please bring a copy of your order and the payment card used to place the order, if a 3rd party is collecting on your behalf they will need to bring valid photographic ID. Please collect your order within 24 hours"

You should use IP rated ones in a bathroom.

Arh yes, spot on, it was actually my debit card - I went out without my wallet to somewhere else and only had my phone. Tried to kill 2 birds with 1 stone, worked in the end. Still.

I've got GU10s in my bathroom. You just need a sealed fitting to stop moisture getting in.

Big thanks to the original poster. I ordered 2 sets and when I picked them up one box was damaged and 1 was missing so they discounted my order by 50%. I had 19 lights for 4.99. Well chuffed.

Damn. Bought them but didn't think of that. Could you not just install 12v GU5.3 LEDs like these: amazon.co.uk/Phi…1-2

​you could, but you'd also need to replace the transformer, alternatively buy some gu10 lamp holders (the lamps are the same size for the fitting-cheaper option by far-about a pound each per lamp holder)
