Sorry for the confusion. Label says 10pk boxes say 6...


I think the big box contain 6 packets..each packet is 10 bulbs. So its 10 bulbs for £7
So there is 10 in a box and 4 watt warm white non dimmable, good bulbs have the dimmable ones, same ones in Asda.
In Home Bargains (Poole) they are selling a box of 4 Pifco 5W daylight GU10s (very bright) for £4
They dimmable?

Bought mine from the Branksome store. Unlike other LED bulbs, these ones have no restrictive focal spots. They are incredibly bright, possibly even brighter than a 50W Halogen equivalent.
Label says 10; packet says 10; picture on packet even shows 10!

Unless you're saying we get 6 boxes of 10 for £7?! (which would indeed be a mega deal!).

This is the most confused deal I've seen on here in a long time.

Presume they are just wide angle? What info is on a box?
non dimmable, seen in many shops in london
they still got the 5w 345L dimmable for 10@£10 and can strongly recommend.

I replaced all the non-dimming bulbs in my home for these TCP branded bulbs a few years ago - bought them through Robert Dyas at the time.

Colour wise, they are VERY similar to a 50W halogen, the 3000K warm white is a perfect substitute. Light is emitted from 4 x 1W LED sources, you can see four dots if you stare at them.

I replaced dozens of bulbs and haven't had a single failure after thousands of hours of use.

They aren't dimmable at all, I tested. You just get a horrible buzzing noise from your dimmer and the bulb is either on or off depending on the brightness you set.

For some rooms, I chose to remove the dimmers and replaced with a standard switch. I used 2W and 3W TCP bulbs, same design as these, to match my normal desired brightness.

They're no bigger than a normal halogen GU10 and won't stick out the ceiling like some models. Other brands, especially dimmable ones, are much bigger and don't fit flush in the ceiling.

1W of electricity costs about £1 per year to run, based on 24/7 use. So your 50W GU10 could cost you up to £50/yr to run, these will cost just £4 over the same usage - you've saved £46 each year. If you only use them twelve hours a day, a £23 saving.

Basically, if you only use the lights for 1 hour a day, it will pay for itself in 6 months when replacing a 50W halogen.

No brainer!

Hope that helps.
Can you simply replace GU10 halogen bulbs with these in the same fittings?

Yes, GU10 is GU10 that's the size. Just won't work with dimmers.
