B&Q - G4 LED Blubs £1 for 2

Found 1st Dec
Most people with ceiling lights using this type of bulbs need lots of these to upgrade to LED. Cheapest Chinese ones on amazon are about 10 for £10. These work out at 20 for £10 with free delivery if collected instore. Like most LEDs of this style they are non dimmable. They are also slightly bigger so may not fit in cooker hoods etc.

Check out the wattage / luminaries on them - really need the 2w ones to be any good.

Great spot... ordered C&C.

Good Luck with C and C, in such cases I often get a call to tell me its OOS

Thanks op ordered 3 packs for £2.70!

Hi, how much bigger are than the halogen one? I want to use them for the cooker hood. Can see that there is some slightly extra space.
Thanks

Word of warning, I changed out the cooker hood to led's and other small lights around the kitchen but as they didn't have a "led driver" on the circuit they pulsed (flashed on and off) and had to go back

I think they are way bigger and would not fit

My fish tank has a G4 in the lid and it's forever blowing... might give LED a try if they fit in the tube. Hot.

Odd - nearly all these bulbs have a driver built in, you shouldn't need an external driver.

.The other week the 15mm leds 12 volt in the hall started pulsing but rectified by replacing the plug in transformer. Have only seen flickering not pulsing with mains led when using a dimmer switched controlled ones.
Just found out the transformer is the driver output to 12volt led but mains led bulbs have driver built in each one.

Lgiht blubs?

do they deliver in store on Saturdays?? anyone got any notification "ready to collect"??

collected today, found out that I had some bedside lamps with g4 fittings and fitted very well. Definitely brighter than the halogen 20w.
They are energy saving A++, so an equivalent of lets say nearly a 30 watts I think. Tried to fit on my cooker and I think I can easily get away with a minor modification as they are considerably bigger. No flickering or stuttering etc... Great deal, thank you OP

Collected today too, photo for size reference, had to leave one halogen in each fitting to stop flickering as built in transformer didn’t like them much. However they are brighter and reduced my pair of living room lights from 240 watts to about 60 in total
