Good price mate , got to say this long life thing is a load of BS , I have had 2 go in the living room in 3 months now . I got longer out of the classic fellas.

At least there cheap though , thanks .

Got these in Inverurie Morrisons last week. Good deal.

As for long life, I have only seen them go when the kids are being numpties. Not replaced any for a reason other than indoor cricket...

When do they start giving them away for free in the street? LOL.

I bet this offer aint on the screw caps though they never are alway bayonet fitting doh!

Replaced 95% of bulbs in the house over the last year - thats about 30 - and have only had one go. Would normally have had a dozen blown in that time.
At 2p each you can't complain if they last 6 months rather than the 10 years that is generally claimed.

Hot as the old tungsten filament bulbs they replaced.

I have seen this offer posted loads in the past few months, it makes you wonder how many there are left to sell! I bought 100 3 weeks ago, and used them as target practice for my air rifle :-D

^^ Not really a cleaver idea. You do know they contain Mercury, don't you?

I got carried away last time my local had one of these offers. I can't remember the exact deal, but they were double packs, I think it was 5 packs for 20p, but they made it by one get one free as well. Anyway I walked out with a trolley full, so far I have only used 6. I could light my entire road with what I bought.

Maybe you have unstable electricity feed.

When I lived in Norfolk I was always getting surges and spikes. Some would just turn appliances off, others would blow bulbs and on two occasions my comuter was damaged, I lost a modem and a hard drive.

What power bulbs are available?

Do u know why all these bulbs are given at dirt cheap rates.This is because the government incentivises it as the more you use all those old filament bulbs,the more you consume energy which increases UK s total carbon fooprint.With every increasing footprint UK govt has to buy carbon credits at extremely high rates from other countries..And thats why these cheap prices of these energy savers..

I read somewhere a while back that the subsidy would soon end as the government had subsidised far too many of these bulbs. The article said that as the subsidised stock begins to run low, you would see these bulbs returning to there true cost.

The first 20w energy bulb I bought cost me £2.50 for 1 bulb.

So does sea water, about 40 tons per cubic mile I seem to remember.
Every fluorescent tube in every shop, factory, school etc does too.

It's already there, it's a naturally occuring element, your body needs it too. As long as it's inside the lamp, a miniscule amount needed to start the discharge there's no problem.

They have both types at the range 3 for 25p, not quite as cheap but still a good deal! :thumbsup:

Energy companies get "brownie points" for subsidising these bulbs............its done to stop the government hitting them with windfall taxes on their massive profits

Can you provide scientific evidence to back up your statement that the human body requires this element? I'm astonished that anyone could suggest such an element as toxic as mercury has a meritable function in the human body.

Its ok to sell these at low prices.. but later someone wil realize..
OH.. this contains "xyz" and shouldn't be used.. this was the same with most of the products.. (plastic, battery)..

Is government giving some subsidy on these?

Hot, though this could be old technology in a few years, aren't white LED lights are meant to be the future?
