Cheapest 10 watt slim floodlight I have found

unlike the light fitting, this is going to get hot!

The only problem with LED flood lights is not leaving them on all night as they seem to fail due to prolonged use. They start to flash.

The latest versions have a mains driver so are better. I'm not sure which one this is but I've bought some 30w units from CPC

That may be helpful for someone, thanks. I don't feel that chip is as reliable or provides as many lumens in brightness, there is no reflector to keep it cool either, so when it heats up if left overnight, it really does heat up and potentially causes failure, which is a common issue with old stock. The deal I posted is a couple pence more but more likely to last a couple of years.

Only 3,538 in stock so be quick..... oO

OP 680lumens 1year warranty; quoted alternative 800lumens 2years warranty.

Many of these lights contain a standard led driver that can be replaced if the light starts flickering.

Does it come with a mounting bracket?

These 220v standard wiring?

I have worked in the electrical wholesale trade for 30 years now and when it comes to led it doesnt pay to buy cheap! They also do this one cpc.farnell.com/osr…033 which will outlast any unbranded crap although it is rated at 20 watts but the lumens output is far superior at 100lm per watt.

Could you possibly recommend one with built-in motion detection?

just got me a 50W LED security light from newey & eyre as it was managers special for £50. It replaces a twin spot halogen of 150W.
I think its awesome how LED has come on. The 50W LED is literally like an air raid search light compared to the 150W halogen for a 100W less.

As a rule of thumb if you times the wattage by 10 of the led fitting that will give you the equivalent wattage in halogen so technically you now have the lumens output of a 500w halogen flood.

Yes, bracket included. I was tempted to cancel and go with Richiano recommendation, and although I know I would have been happy doing that, having received the item, I am happy too.

It is slimline and tiny, it has a die-cast base with large fins at the back for heat dissipation, I tested the earth wire and it is connected, the connecting lead is only about 20 cm though. Apart from not having a fancy microwave PIR for the price you cannot complain, very bright easily equivalent to the old style 300 watt floodlamps.
