Do you need anything else to connect this to , Transformer etc.?

Stupid question but is this suitable for a bathroom light?

The description says it's bathroom safe.

i work in an electrical wholesalers and we sell identical ones for £3 a pop and chuck in a free GU10 lamp with it
where they get £25 from beats me

Yes, £25 is a ridiculous price.

Be carefull i believe that GU10'S are actually being withdrawn soon End 2009 as the efficiency and heat they produce... I havent got the specific date but i guess once all the £1 land stores run out in 2010 you wont be able to purchase.

Be gentle this is my first comment.

But you could buy 10 GU10's for under £11 from BLT or similar. Also there are are energy efficient GU10's at about £10 each, but they are deeper than originals.

Anyway thanks for the warning we have loads of GU10 fittings, so we'll stockpile if necessary.


Its so silly, they use 60w not 600w. An iron or washing machine uses 2000w. Energy efficiency is a good goal, but not at the expense of enormous amounts waste (and carbon footprint) by throwing out perfectly good systems. Sadly high efficiency bulbs are a horrible compromise, bad colour, slow start, low output until warmed up and mostly undimmable. And they do NOT last 6 years, thats just not true.

End of Rant ;~))

You can get energy efficient bulbs that have a different spectrum emission so they are closer to daylight range.

Identical to the ones in B&Q at about £10 for a set of five.

Blimey, £25 for one downlight! :? Some of these high street department stores have to get their marketing/pricing department staff heads screwed-on. Who on earth would pay £25 a pop for these? It's beggers belief & daylight robbery that they can charge for this price. Absolute muppets. :x

You can get energy efficient LED downlight bulbs to save on running cost in the long run but they are very expensive around £8 each but will be greener & don't generate too much heat. :thumbsup:

What a c*ap price, yet no end of people have voted it hot still!

I'd never pay £25 for a bulb. What madness! Is it cos its blue?
