Cheap, slimline 50w ip65 LED floodlight, £10.20 delivered @ CPC

38
Found 14th Jul
Specs suggest equivalent to a 200w halogen with IP65 water resistance, A+ energy rating and expected 25,000 hours usage, what's not to like?

These are a daylight colour temp so don't expect a warm glow and have no PIR.

NB* THANKS TO DEANOS FOR POINTING OUT A SLIGHTLY BETTER PRICE. BEAR IN MIND HIS LINK IS £7.50 ex VAT SO YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THE ORDER UP TO £8.00 ex VAT TO GET FREE DELIVERY AT THAT PRICE

Be careful with CPC, they list the same item twice with different item codes, one in the clearance section at a reduced price, and one in the main section at full price. You can end up paying too much if you are not careful. A general search won't show the clearance price, only the full price. You have to go in through the clearance banner on the main page then do 'search in page'.

should be the equivalent of 500w or more. HOT

I hacked one from an old halogen and fixed with a 28mm munsen ring but Lidl sell them for £4 from time to time. I also have one running from a remote socket cpc.farnell.com/pro…025 which was better for that particular application.

Probably fine but don’t you want warm and ‘calibrated’ light for photography really? I guess it depends what job exactly.
I have a 20w led and that is crazy bright, can light up half the street (not day brightness but enough to make a noticeable difference). 50w is mental.

Yes a 50w would be OTT for the average house install. This would need mounting quite high to avoid dazzling everyone, ideal for a wide house with a large garden.
Thanks. Been waiting on something to replace the knackered ones on my house.

BTW they have 20W and 10W versions on the site too if someone wants something less powerful and cheaper.

A modern incandescent halogen puts out about 10 lumens per watt. A modern 400w halogen therefore puts out about 4000 lumens. This light puts out 3000 lumens but the colour temperature (6000k) is quite a harsh white.

If you just want a good bright light to replace a 400w halogen this will probably do but the light from LEDs often appears quite intense as they are more directional & thus cover a smaller area than halogen. Fixing high is good advice for that reason.

This is 3500 lumen (about the equivalent of a 200 watt halogen as stated by the OP), a 500 watt halogen should be about 8000 lumen. However I do find a led with the same lumen rating as a halogen appears much brighter to me, I assume because leds are more directional and I think have a narrower frequency range, and whiter light.

I've got a 20w and a 50w PIR LED flood although they are cob led emitters and probably more efficient than the surface mount ones in this, the 20w lights the front garden and a long driveway and the 50w, a fairly large back garden.

You'll get really poor colour rendering from most LEDs especially if photographing flesh.

This is probably a very very stupid question, but I am looking for a bright, daylight lamp to use in the winter for crafting and upcycling furniture.
Proper craftlights seem to be either very tiny or very, very expensive.
Could I put a plug on and use one of these? x

This might help but I don't think this floodlight will.
Do you need an electrician to swap the old broken light with this ?

Not if you know what you're doing.

Just don't trust the missus to turn the electric off when youre replacing or you'll end up with a shakey jake hand for about a week when he flips the wrong switch and you touch the live

ive just put this one up, cant comment on how it will last. i wanted something that was going to be energy efficient but enough to light my small garden and this 10watt one was enough, lights up about 30ft x15ft, without it acting like a stadium floodlight.

Perveived lumens and measured lumens are not the same. The eye is not linear its most sensitive in the green spectrum, moving toward the blue spectrum as the eye adapts to darkness which is perfect for phosphor converted leds. Most halogens on the other hand peak in the yellow and put out tons of red that the eye is fairly insensitive to.

Bear in mind you need to spend £8 ex VAT to get free delivery therefore you would need to add an item worth 50p ex VAT to make up the order as Deanos price is £7.50 ex VAT. Thanks Deanos I've put a note in the title as above.

Would these be any good as a workshop lamp - in terms of longevity and economy?
Compared say, to a strip light?

Maybe if you have high ceilings but they can be very dazzling if in your field of vision. You can get some pretty bright led ceiling lamps with diffusers. I bought a 32w one of these for my upstairs landing (4000k) gives an amazing light.
