Diall LED 0.8W GU10 Light Bulb

As an LED bulb, this Diall LED 0.8W GU10 has a longer lifespan than the traditional incandescent bulbs and requires far less energy, a low maintenance way to save money.

Brand: Diall Colour: Blue Bulb Type: GU10 Max bulb wattage: 0.8 Category: LED Bulbs Qty in pack : 1 Shape (e.g. corner, oval etc): MR16

Lasts up to 15000 hours



You need 10 watts of Leds to get a halogen equivalent of 50 watts. Just search on the net with Bing and you will find plenty of comparison tables. So you will need 12 X 0.8 watts of these to replace a 50 watts halogen. I find then the shops selling these are very mean with showing the " halogen equivalent " figures.

I am no expert in these but isn't 0.8w going to be extremely dim? I thought in leds 6w was roughly the brightness to 50w.

Available in the poundstore for you guessed it a pound ;-)

Not available in pound store

BTW yes you do ne

BTW yes these will not be much good as a replacement for 50w etc

I bought some 1watt led gu10 and the room darkened when I turned them on?
No good except for mood lighting and I did buy mine in Poundland.

they sucked the light out if you. Interesting discovery.

i have some 4w 3 led gu10's and i even think they are slightly less bright than the 50w's i took out, so unless B&Q have managed an a amazing breakthrough in the amount of light generated by these 0.8w bulbs, i think you are going to be very disappointment if you install them.

For 50P more Home Bargains sell some that are fine.Close to a normal 50w.

Noticed in local Tesco they now do a 7w led gu10 which should be quite bright. £10 each though so waiting for next 3 for 2 (which they do quite frequently on bulbs).

6 watts led has lumens about 30 to 35 watts of halogen equivalent and about 40 to 50 of an incandescent bulb, the metal filament type.

Id rather buy led lightbubs though the last place id buy them is b and q as they are ridicously overpriced

Re led bulbs... Try homebase as they have 330 lumen 5watt ones for 4.99 each or oddly double packs for 9.99.

plus vat = £2.26

Correct 2.26 but still cheaper than post of 2.98 and you don't need to go to b and q to collect

if you want high light output, SMD ones are better than high power ones, and from what I hear the cob LED are even better, you can buy 10 pcs GU10 6w cob for around £17 on eBay.

There are 6W LEDs that produce more light than a 50W halogen, only problem, they cost an arm and a leg.

Lumens is the best, and only realistic, comparison, 450-500 lumens is roughly equivalent to a 50W GU10 (although generally a white light more akin to daylight, than the yellow glow of halogen).

If a bulb doesn't have a lumens value printed on the packaging, you can be fairly safe in the knowledge that it won't be any good, a bright LED will always shout about how bright it is, because there are so many of these cheap, rubbish alternatives.

I find the best thing for normal use is to get a cheap bulb doubler, where you get to convert 1 E27 fitting to 2 E27, then use twice as many low power bulbs, much cheaper in the long run.

The various technologies, ordinary LED, SMD and COB are all using the same basic concepts, just the density of LEDs can be increased, but this also means a higher heat dissipation requirement, if you look at some of the really high output COB LEDs, you've got to fit a massive heat sink, making them quite difficult to use in a standard lamp.

Installed these last week simplyled.co.uk/sta…9i6 these are brighter than my 50w halogens
