This is a good price, I paid £4 for one in Tesco recently. Hot
Not very bright though 🤔
Equivalent to 50W Halogen, that should be as bright as any normal halogen downlighter. Usually use Cool White though
Good spot. Especially for the mirrored outer cones which I personally think look loads better than the white casings.

If you're still using halogens then don't hesitate to switch.

(Sorry, All Puns accidental)

My kitchen fitting had 6 Halogens and they were popping with annoying frequency, not to mention consuming 300w overall. I was lucky enough to pick up 6 bulbs for £7 in Homebase sale recently - and wow what a difference.
They are actually brighter than the Halogens that they replaced whilst being the same colour temp, still switch on instantly and consume just 30w. Should also last considerably longer.

I was worried where I might find similar for a good price ... thanks OP.
just an option, Homebase have 5w GU10 in a pack of 10 for £10 I've used them and they are nice and bright you can get them in silver body or white

LED bulbs?
Must be, 5W halogens would be like a trying to light a room with a matchstick
thanks op, got the last one in my store

was going there today to pick up some stuff anyways
Picked up the equivalent dimmable version back September time for the same price, so this is a good deal now but if you need dimmable version they have been the same price previously.
The ones from Poundland are just as good. My local has GU10 LED bulbs in 3/4/5W varients at 250/350/450 Lumens, with approximately a 120deg angle.

I bought 10 of them (for £10 obviously) and they work well in my downlighters. Much better than the existing CCFL bulbs that cost 5x as much.
Beam angle is only 36 degrees, so they will be like a torch rather than a replacement bulb. Still, they are very cheap at that price

The having to replace the halogen was my main reason for switching to LED.

The first cheap ones I had did not come anywhere near the brightness of the 50w even though they said they would and went faulty just as quickly as the halogen.

In the end I settled for a manufacturer called MiniSun and have not had one go faulty in the many years that I have had them (I have 13 in total) and these are a LOT brighter than the halogen 50w ones.

You have to go by the Lumens the decent manufacturer specifies (the MiniSun ones I think it was 560 Lumens).

Mark.

These are the best ones I use: pack of 10 - MiniSun Thermal Plastic 7w High Power Long Life Energy Saving LED GU10 Frosted Lens Bulbs [3000K Warm White] [Energy Class A+]

They are 7 Watts and blow the 50watt halogen away (think mine were 560 Lumen, but I think they may have upgraded them as they say 600 Lumens on these and the 560 were bright enough.

Who sees the the outer fittings as usually go in enclosed fittings. Saying that in the last three houses did a running canopy above kitchen dining units and fitted lights in them the clear glass halogens gave a nice rainbow effect above but have a coloured led strips above now.
In kitchen dining area all lit at once have 21 led would be bonkers to have halogens.
I have 7 such fittings in kitchen. Bought a single one from poindland and was well impressed. Gutted I didn't buy more at the time. Bought a box of 10 from Tesco yesterday for £20 seemed reasonable compared to their single price of £4
Poundland sell these
Hmm. I was in Tesco (Lisburn) last night and I saw a box of 10 of these for £5. There was an "end" dedicated to lightbulb offers. I had already been through the check-outs but plan to stop by later on my home to stock up!

Edit: May have been halogen. Not LED. Will confirm later.

Not very bright though 🤔


50watt is standard on a GU10 halogen bulb, these are LEDs equivalent to 50watt.

They are 350 lumens. So again not very bright hence my comment.

Well, they are warm white after all, so pretty standard to be only 350 lumens, if you are looking for something brighter, then you have to get cool white.

Huh? I got warm white 500 lumens which are great and much brighter. I'm just advising people who might want a brighter light as these are quite dull. That's all.

The Philips branded ones?

Any led bulbs I bought from poundland hasn't lasted more than 3 months.

Huh? Where exactly are you advising people? You just wrote a comment saying that they are not bright, where is your link to the brighter ones? Did I miss it?
