I have several of the candle bulbs and can recommend them. Quite bright for 3w.

Are these shops in West Yorks (Wakefield)? I can't see on my mobile...

Bought one of these for my lamp, put it in and the smell of burning was so strong I quickly switched it off at the wall. Wouldn't risk it again - if I hadn't stayed in the room I reckon there would have been a fire. I wrote to pound land to warn them about it but the dodgy bulb got smashed so I couldn't send it back for tests. May be a one off but who knows?

they also have Gu10 led bulbs

Good quality bulbs used in daughters bedroom.

Cracking quality for a quid! Done most of the house with them...

Bit confused by this post. Is it poundshop.com (where the Get Deal link takes you to), or Poundland? There's been numerous threads about the LED bulbs in Poundland, made by Status apparently.

Poundland

The bit where you will never need to get up a chair or ladder again is a load of BS!
Been using Esl lamps for many years. NONE of them have lasted the hours stated on the box. And I am also talking about lamps from a well known companies.

Do NOT but cheap bulbs / lamps. These are of a very poor quality and have a high failure rate. Whilst we should all move over to LED bulbs buy a decent branded version. I very much doubt these have passed the relevant safety checks and they are just dangerous.

Yes they are cheap but this does NOT make them a good deal.

agreed, cheap ones also flicker which makes them unusable.

Does anyone know if the candle type ones are dimmable I know there are different dimmer switchs with different minimum loads but I just want to know if anyone is using a dimmer with these bulbs

I have G4 LED bulbs (not regular bayonet/screw LED lightbulbs), which, admittedly were cheap from ebay. I was told they flicker because of the transformer in the standing lamp they're in: even mixing them with regular halogen bulbs didn't sort out the flicker. It's really annoying and quite a few of those LEDs popped early on!

But I have G9 LEDs (also from the same place) in a much newer light fitting that don't flicker and have been working faithfully for around six months so far. As my hall light they get a lot of use.

The Status (Poundland) LED bayonet/screw bulbs have been working fine, too, no flicker at all.

Most LED bulbs are not dimmable. Unless it specifically states otherwise, always assume they are not dimmable.

If it was a link to an eBay store then I'd agree but this is a reputable retailer. Saying they won't meet safety standards and will blow up quickly just because it is from a Poundshop is just plain ridiculous.

I hardly class Poundshop as a reputable seller for electronics. I didn't say they won't meet safety standards, just that it was unlikely. There is no way these can be made of a decent quality and gone through the relevant rigorous testing as a properly branded model and then be sold for a £1.

Check your DAB radio still works after installing these and you should be OK.

Use one of these for a week... strong burning smell. Would not buy again.

Personally I don't think that it is really fair to criticise on safety them unless they have a documented history of stocking dodgy products. Just because something is cheap doesn't mean it hasn't gone through lots of testing especially as we are talking about a relatively simple mass market product, if they killed someone with a faulty product they would be gone overnight so it is also not worth it for them to cut corners on testing unlike an eBay store or market trader who can pop up easily as something else. Quality in terms of longevity / features might be worse of course although cheap doesn't always mean terrible and expensive doesnt always mean high quality.

stick with proper branded products, as earlier post said not with the smell of burning and potential aftermath

a couple of sayings spring to mind:

if it is too good to be true it often is.....

you get what you pay for....

I have tried many of the cheap LED bulbs and its a false economy - they simply do not last before either flickering, give off a burning smell or just simply fail

started using these: LE LED Daylight White Pack of 5 about a year ago and they are fantastic

Agreed. Would rather get these:

lightingever.co.uk/2w-…tml

Use less power, deliver better efficiency (35% brighter than these), don't get hot (The filaments dont really produce much heat), you get a 5 year warranty, you get a 360 degree beam angle, it's CE approved, and it also looks a hell of a lot nicer!

Tbh, considering they use 1W less, I'd imagine that over the lifetime, they actually work out cheaper than the poundland ones!

We do have some dangerous GU10's lying around, but I installed them back when I wasn't so clued up! Typically, if you do have these dangerous ones, please at least turn the damn switch off, and wait a little while!

There's also this as well:

amazon.co.uk/Aur…GJM

A more recognised brand, however it's £8 vs £5, they use more power and I dont think theyre as bright as the LE ones either. They do also have a 5 year warranty, have a 360 degree beam angle and are CE approved however. Oh and they look nice! Filament bulbs is the way to go people!

I remember that time when some big expensive name makeup made it's way to poundland via wholesalers, that weren't meant to be sold... I dont trust em with this tbh

Personally for 10W replacements, I was thinking about either getting this:

amazon.co.uk/Bla…10W

or:

amazon.co.uk/Ret…LED

The Lighting Ever stuff is cheaper, but it just doesnt have the same lumen efficiency that those two have! Blackberg is pretty well known Batterylogic do pretty good...battery stuff, but not sure about their bulbs. Also importantly, their lighting has a 360 degree beam angle! We've got some Auraglow stuff, where the beam angle isn't full 360

they look a good idea if you want something that gives off a light similar to a normal bulb - personally I like the harsher Daylight White bulbs

Poundland led's ARE CE approved if you were wondering.

I got these ones in the past and have been really please with them: amazon.co.uk/Ver…LWK

So all of those 19p bulbs I bought years ago from Dunhelm Mill need to be taken back because they can possibly be safe due to the price paid.... OK...

Incandescent style bulbs i'm guessing? If so you're comparing a Model T-Ford with a Tesla Model S. Not remotely comparable.

Use one of these for a week... strong burning smell. Would not buy again.


Have you tried putting them in the light fitting instead of using matches? ;-)

Ah that's fair enough. Tbh, I quite like those in the bathroom, but then I think in other rooms, a yellow-y light is more like a candle colour, and white is more like daylight. Considering humans are really meant to see light at day time, and dark at night time, I thought it's perhaps best that I dont try to simulate daylight!

They're OK for £1 tbh, but tbh at the same time 200 lumens for 3W is pretty poor! These bulbs would typically replace the old candle bulbs, and they don't have a full 360 degree beam angle, nor do they look as good as the filament LED bulbs out there!

Havent done the maths, but Im pretty sure that using 1W less for 270 lumens and paying a fiver would actually be cheaper in the long term. It's only 1W, but these bulbs are typically meant to last however many hours they are, and who knows how many hours these are rated to? Is it 20,000 hours? 35,000? 40,000? 50,000? It may well say that on the pack tbh. How many times do these bulbs have to be replaced?

And high lumens is something you SHOULD look at.The power consumption of a bulb, not so much. Well you'd rather have the highest amount of lumens possible per watt, however just cos it says something like 6W, don't assume it's automatically "equivalent" to the old 60W bulbs!

How good are these? I like 60w old-money around the house but prefer brighter in the living room. 100w old money!

Like daylight bulbs in bathroom / kitchen but warm light everywhere else.

Also 10W but higher lumens:

amazon.co.uk/Bla…10W

Blackberg is pretty respected tbh. It does however cost quite a lot of money for a single bulb! One thing you're also paying for is the 360 degree light beam angle!

The newer bulbs are more this format:

amazon.co.uk/Ret…B22

OVer 100 lumens per "filament"!!!!!! OVer time, I imagine that's cheaper than the Blackberg one, but not sure about say the build quality. Blackberg bulbs tend to have a really good build quality (Or from what I know any way) Certainly the future is filament LED's

I think they are fantastic - they sell them in singles, so you can just buy one to try

full range here: Try me

and before some bore has a paddy - no, I do not work for the company that makes them or sells them

Lool yeah I've been recommending LE stuff as well,and yeah I have no affiliation with them either. THey just seem to be pretty good value for money (And I have mentioned Blackberg and the other 8W filament bulb)

From a brand name, I certainly do think that the Blackberg stuff is better because well for 10W you get a full 360 degree beam angle, which you dont get with LE stuff!

LE also have a shop here:

Osram are excellent, expensive but sort of the John Lewis of LED Lightbulbs, you know what your getting, you buy them, install, no hassle, job done. Recommend putting the £1 towards them instead. Tesco sell them, often on offer.

The bayonet (BA22) fitting ones appear to be slightly short between the pins and the actual base of the bulb, they foul the bulb holder on one of my lamps. So they cannot be pushed far enough in to twist
Hope this makes sense
