As above was £10 seems to be a decent price for a pack of 4
B&Q have a pretty good sale on light bulbs including flourescent tubes etc many less then half price.
I have listed the link for the sale items in the first comment as too many items to individually mention and whilst you may be able to order online as B&Q's C&C system isn't that great i have posted as in store deal

I wouldn't take these if they were free. Painfully slow to light fully and there not as efficient as Led's. Not voted as good price if you have a specific need or want for these.

I tend to agree with everything said above, but these have one thing over on LED bulbs, these are cheaper.

CFL's like these still have their uses, they're better for outdoor light fixtures due to their design and higher light output. Unlike most LED lamps these put out 360 degrees of light. I've been using the spiral Diall 1400Lumen CFL's in three outdoor lights, they come up quick and are bright.

wouldn't touch these either,
A new study shows that CFL bulbsalso emit high levels of ultraviolet radiation—specifically, UVC and UVA rays. In fact, the UV rays are so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells. Experts say the radiation could initiate cell death and cause skincancer in its deadliest form—melanoma.

Wow really and yet they can be found in most DIY stores up and down the country - do you think our government are secretly trying to kill us all off

Thanks penny

​Are they cheaper?? These are £1.59 each (for5) http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/9w-led-bulbs-60w-equiv-5-pack-now-7-99-screwfix-2522628

CFL's have high startup voltages (not necessarily good if your outdoor light is letting the damp in)

They also have high startup currents so not very economical if your outdoor light is on and off all the time as in a pir. Not only do they waste energy starting, each startup shortens the lifetime and dims the flourescent.

The op's CFL's have less than half of the rated lifetime of the screwfix LEDs. They use more than twice the current even if on constantly. They are really false economy as ultimately not cheaper (unless you are moving house, lol) Lower lifetime also means more in landfill and these have got a fair amount of mercury in them which BTW pollutes the air, the land, our drinking water and the sea.

There's nothing "new" in this study, all fluorescent tubes emit UV radiation, they always have, thats how they work. They've been around for nearly 100 yrs, if there was a cancer risk I think we'd know about it by now.

good find PF, heat added

Sheeple said asbestos was OK too. Used for decades .......... nobody touches it with a bargepole.

well I know about it, and so do hundreds of thousands of others, they will be obsolete in a year or two.
