60 watt and 75 watt eq. Bayonet fitting.

Any cheaper and they will have to put a notice on saying "Just Help yourself"

It was a printed notice so it could be at all stores.

cold.fed up of seeing them.got a shed full.Need offers on on halogen spots low voltage and mains.

they are just about giving them away now... but to be honost I amnt a fan of these bulbs.. poor quality of light. Hate swithing the light on and then having to wait till it is bright enough.
Better to stop chopping down all the rainforests than recycling carrier bags and changing lightbulbs...which is a drop in the ocean..

"Need offers on on halogen spots low voltage and mains."

why dont you post one then?

WE all hate them......but if we are been forced to use them, then 2p each leaves little to complain about.

These will look great in public toilets or council run brothels - if you want something that looks less like something from the Russian space program you can get them in Ikea

I wonder at this price if they could be used as fuel on an open fire?

I agree, they take 10 mins to get to full light - by that time I have stood on a plug and fallen over the dog. :x

I really wish people would get over all this nonsense about low energy bulbs being no good. If you haven't already changed over to using them then shame on you there's absolutely no reason not to. So they take a split-second to reach full brightness, is it really a problem?.

At 2p they'll save you a packet in electricity and hey if they're not bright enough you can get higher wattage bulbs or even have 2 of them and still save.

Full brightness, like all things, is relative. Although they may not take "long" to reach their full brightness, in comparison to the 100w bulbs, which I'd much rather be using, there is more light shining out of a certain orifice than there is out of some of those bulbs.

Frankly, its a good deal, but I think these are a waste of time - and even better you can get them free from many places now anyway.

Oh, and I *literally* have a shed full of these.

I couldn't agree more.

They do take a little while to achieve full brightness but this has never prevented me from seeing what I want to see without any difficulty at all. I don't like needlessly wasting energy when there's an easily available and cheap alternative.

Sorry meant low energy version of above

Be careful - danger - may contain cadmium - so you can't recycle - toxic metal. How much does it cost the council to dispose of these millions of bulbs once the 5/6/8/10 year lifespan is up?

Nuclear power is starting to make sense.

These bulbs won't save you anything over the months you have your central heating run by thermostat, as the lower heat output over conventional bulbs just means your boiler uses more fuel to compensate. You will save in the summer, but as it's lighter anyway the gains are marginal.

Morrisons in Hartcliffe Bristol also have the basic stick bulb 2P each offer, I have 34 lights in my house, and I have changed all of them to 11w low energy except for the toilet and garage where I need a snap on straight away light. I also changed the fittings and use 8w bulbs in the worktop concealed lights and floor kitchen lighting which originally had 30w strip lights, I really dont care too much about costs to the enviorment, but I do care about wasting my money when theres no need to, and this has cut my electric bills bigtime. Tesco in particular have a wide range, the sticks are ugly but you can get candle shaped ones, traditional shaped ones, silvered spots, ones that now work in dimmers, and ones with built in PIR's.

A decent post at last! If you dont like 'em why are you reading this post? Like Natural High, I changed all lights to low wattage ones. Initially - when they were still £4/5 each, I only bought a few, but now have stocked up for years (will still have a look in Morrisons - can't be terrible for 10p!).

Gradually moved from 11w to mainly 20w, though have some 30w ones too - as hard for kids studying. Solutions which I am waiting for, 15w + bulbs to come down below 50p (2p would be nice) and halogen and spot bulbs ditto. I reckon we are saving £100 a year on this alone - helps with security as now I keep a light on at front and back of house permanently - using those Russian sized 11w Ikea ones!
