7w Energy saving reflector spotlight replacement £1.59 Ikea

Found 14th Jan 2009
Just got three of these to replace the spot lamps in my kitchen light. So going from using 120w down to 21w....now that should save me some money on the electricity. They are shaped similar to the reflector bulbs but with a flat end and scrrew cap. They look really cool. As usual they take around 20-30 seconds to become real bright but the savings for your pocket and the environment is massive. £1.59 maybe high but for 10Yrs life and the reflectors only lasting around 2 years its a good saving all round. Not seem them any where else.

They've been this price for a while - we first bought them when they were about £6 each.

Don't expect to get 10 years from them though - think ours dies after a couple of years. But then, the refelctors we had only lasted about a year or so.

These are specifically ikea branded ones - they take a couple of minutes to warm up, especially when the room is cold, but they're fine after that - we use them in a triple spot arrangement.

Excellent deal, voted hot. What normal wattage would these be equivalent to, anyone know?
Other IKEA energy-saving bulbs have won Which? tests for quality in the past so I'd trust these to be good.
What is the usual name of these bulbs, ie the type so I can be sure the ones I have in my kitchen are equivalnet please, anyone know?
Thanks!
