I know these led ones don't get as hot as halogen ones, but a little heat would be appreciated

Thanks whoever gave some heat

thankd for the tip(_;)

Heat added(_;)

I hope this isn't store specific :D. I paid about £8 for 5 of these the other day. Stupid energy saving light bulbs are useless! I had to change most of the lights in our house over to halogen spotlights to compensate.

This isn't led gu10's though.....?

just bought 3 for £7 at tescos so this is a crackin deal

I wouldn't go mad on halogen - they eat electricity, and for most uses, you can get LEDs to do the job. Give it two years and nobody will touch halogen with a barge pole.

Except me.

Been a halogen man for about 25 years! My electricity bill is not through the roof and I save on costs by having a few days away in an expensive hotel once in a while.

But booked through laterooms (or nowadays maybe via here).

Given that most people replace a 100w or 60w bulb with at least 4 halogen downlights I can't believe the EU isn't banning these before incandescent bulbs.
Went to have a look at a show home the other week, in one bedroom alone it had four light fittings each with about 9 x 20w halogen bulbs, so 720w of power in one room. I'll bet its fed with the cheapest 1mm twin and earth too!

Yes but the trade off is you can actually see what you're doing .

Time you checked out the latest LEDs; cheaper bulbs, MUCH, MUCH, MUCH less power - we're talking less than 10% - and they last (almost) forever. Don't take my word for it... check 'em out on the Interweb!

Any LED alternatives I've seen are expensive and don't give off as clean or bright a light as halogens. I'm not too concerned with the extra electricity consumption of halogens. You pay a little extra for convenience is how I see it.

they are hot
so i am adding some heat

i just hope the led get good enough

wikked price need 8 for just 1 room so heat added
thx

Heat added, it's a great deal if you choose to opt for halogen bulbs. We've fitted an EON energy meter and when I switch on the 15 halogen spots in the kitchen it goes through the roof!

Considering replacing halogen with the money saving LED's, just concerned that they may not give off enough light? Has anyone replaced a large qty of bulbs and what were the results like?

Thinking of replacing mine with leds,expensive but a lot cheaper to run.

Comes up as 9.98 a pound dearer ! Save yourselves the trip

Yes indeed LED bulbs use a tenth or so of a normal 50W halogen. However my lights mean I can put the heating on 3-4 minutes later now each day.

And tonight when the clocks change it will be 63-64 minutes later! Ohh a bargin...!

Halogen all the way for me, I have 102 gu10 50w fittings in my house, they are obviously not all on at the same time or for hours on end in each room, I also have 76 g9 40w halogens. Would not contemplate £5 to £7 a bulb for low energy low light shi....ite, when I can buy for 25p a pop and cheaper! tell the yanks to save the planet, not me at my expense.

102 x 50w gu10's and 76 x 40w g9's.....????


Where are you, Blackpool ?...LOL

Bet you save a fortune on heating.....

You can get great LED substitutes on deal extreme website.
Just search for GU10 or MR16 etc... on there.

Couldn't find these in the Basingstoke B&Q

Worth checking out the comments on this issue from July hotukdeals.com/dea…985

As you'll see on this HUKD thread from July the cost saving of swapping one 50w GU10 to a 3w LED is about £100 during the 30,000 hour life expectancy. I replaced 100 lamps over a year ago and my electricity bills have shown I'm on target for a £10,000 saving after 10 years. I don't class this as a little extra!!!

Light output with early LEDs was as low as 40Lm but the latest 3w LEDs are rated at over 200Lm which is very close to that of a 50w halogen, so light output won't be a problem in most cases.
