A very good price for LED replacement bulbs. RRP is supposedly £9.99, but you'd usually expect to pay £5-£6 for something similar on Amazon.
Description from site:
3.5W G9 LED Replacement Lamps Cylinder Shape Warm White

• Low power LED replacement for traditional Halogen G9 lamps
• Cylinder configuration for wide angle illumination
• Long life LEDs rated to 35,000 hour lifespan
• 230V AC mains powered

At 285 lumen output, they're roughly equivalent to a 25w halogen.

There's a few other LED bulbs also for £1 so worth a look. Free collection from local store.

Just to get ten of these I would need to drive to 7 different stores to collect.

Just be careful you don't trip over them!

Fantastic price but only the odd one or two available within about 20 mile of me

I've just checked nationally and you're right, most stores only have two or three in stock. I only needed two so was perfect, if you need more, it's going to end up more trouble than it's worth.

Fab price though for someone only needing a couple. Good post!

Maplin are beginning to remind me of Tesco !!!!!

I bought 10 G9 LEDs last week and am very happy with the ones I got If you search ebay for 3014 SMD G9 you should find plenty of sellers with 5 for about £9inc. Not as cheap as these but they're more easily obtainable.

The ones I got are replacing 5 x 35w and are a little dimmer so I'd agree with the comment saying the 3w ones are closer to a 25w halogen. For my application this is fine as it's in a hallway.

Is this an option and how?

i know the ones in Yorkshire do this and get any item from any other store in but has to be in person

are these or the ebay ones mentioned ,dimmable?

These look very cool .. & very cheap too ..... :-)

nearest to me is 70 miles away and they only have one in stock.lol

OOS most stores

Agree with earlier comment. Just like Tesco. To get you in their store.

sullie

These are normally not dimmable as the LEDs are driven from a separate switching circuit on the pcb inside the assembly.

nice

What can I say... I got myself new 2 ceiling lights each having 3x G9 bulb, so in total 6 bulbs and I tell you what - it is a nightmare! If I buy anything up to 3-4 W the room is so dark that when I am on skype everybody is complaining that picture is so dark! Now I invested over £10 in set from ebay and they are f****** massive! and sticking out of the shade so much that it looks really stupid. I can't wait to go back to the good old style bulb where you could fit 2 x 20W which would give you equivalent of probably 100W and it would look decent and cost me less in a long run. Especially the buying bulbs from ebay does not guarantee that they are really 3-4W. You never know how much they really use. Rant over

for those that its to far to drive..home bargains have the for 2.99 at least in mine..ive got four in a bathroom... i know its more but still dirt cheap..my advice however is get a normal light fitting ....these are pointless even in a guest bathroom like ours which is about 4 x 8 feet

Wonder if you get 12 months warranty on bulbs.

Price varies on number of led's/lumens, also make sure they are the right colour white for where you want them, as some have a slightly yellow tint and some have a blueish tint.

Total watts from a light should be aligned to the size and purpose of the room. A room big enough for 2 ceiling lights will typically need more than 100w halogen-equivalent. Furthermore, I can't see how 2 x 20w (=40w) is equivalent to 100w!?

I meant 2x20W gives equivalent of 2x100W
energysavingonline.co.uk/20w…Arw
and 1 bulb gives 1200 lumen which is impossible to achieve in my opinion with G9 bulbs

Does not change the fact that this deal is very hot. It might not give you enough light but price vs product is brilliant.

It would be easier to follow your original post if you state whether you are describing LED, CFL, halogen or incandescent bulbs, otherwise your comments make no sense at all! 2x20W might only be equivalent to 2x100W if you are comparing different technologies, but you don't say that. It should be noted that G9 bulbs are typically available as LED or halogen types. What are you referring to when you say a "good old style bulb"? I would say incandescent is the "old style", though it appears that you may be referring to CFL.

Roughly speaking, an 5W LED = 12W CFL = 42W halogen = 60W incandescent.

If you have 6 x 4W LEDS, that should provide comparable (if not more) light compared to 2 x 20W "good old style bulbs", and much more than a single 100W incandescent bulb... if not, then you have very poor quality LED bulbs.

The only way to assess the output from bulbs is to use LUMENS!

You are correct! I was using watts to align with the post that I replied to, but you are correct in saying lumens is more accurate.

These are the cheapest UK sold 3W LED G9 bulbs I can find, unless anyone can find cheaper

ebay.co.uk/itm…6d2 £7.29 for 5.
