* Lasts 20 times longer than an equivalent halogen lamp (40,000 hrs)


If they really do last 20 times longer than a normal Hologen which are ~£6 for 3 - then these will cost you ~£25 less to buy in the long run and provide a very decent energy saving.

We have 6 in our Kitchen - so I will be able to run all 6 for less than 1 of the 50W bulbs we currently have installed.

I've only ordered 2 myself - want to try them first before replacing them all.

Warm White also available.


Looks nice put pricey! As the title said 'bulbs' I thought this would be a back of 2 or 3 or so. For one 15 quid is a lot me thinks. Not voting however as I don't know the usual price.

look good - i have spots in the kitchen - would be interested to know what these are like

Just make sure your transformer can handle such light loads, many transformers need a minimum load and will blow LED lights. Although things might have changed since I looked into it. I've purchased the 4 watt MR16's from Deal extreme and run them off an old car battery and solar panel in the garden, safer than mains and free to use once setup.

We've switched 8 in total in our stair hall and bathroom from 35/50w halogen to 1w LED that were €4 each. They give a little less light , 20w equivalent, but have been great for about 9 months now. Still got another 12 to switch so might try a couple of these. They seem a bit dear in comparison to the 1w we bought though.

Having attempted to install these, I have found that they are too large to fit into the Halogen ceiling holders, and in addition, when I put the power on they do not light up.

Time for Plan B ...

Macdory - as per my note above not all transformers can handle the light loads, you might need a LED transformer.…tml
