I know that you can get this style on ebay cheaper, but I have bought them in the past and haven't lasted very long. These save a lot of energy, last a long time and don't get hot. They can be recycled too.

I have not seen any 28W or 40w LED. Probably what you mean is LED which is equivalent to 28w/40w halogen lamp.
For £2 you will only get 1-3W LED. You might get around 5w if you are lucky and it is on sale ....

Bad deal, price point will drop to < £3 this year.

They can be recycled. Most council tips (recycling centres) take them, at least where I live. Check on your council website, or here:

And some shops will also take them, check the link above.

Not a bad hight street price, although I would like some further consumption details, but as the OP states plenty of choice on eBay at much better prices!

That's all they are showing online (2 for £9.99) different stock in-store perhaps?

I've only just realised that normal bayonet (B22) fitting led bulbs now exist.
Anybody recommend some at reasonable prices?

Probably funded by the incandescent light buld association of the USA. Problem with all these sorts of surveys, the technology moves forward so fast that it's not necessarily accurate by the time it's published. Not to mention someone funds all this research I'm not sure any can be trusted either pro or anti green.

I particularly wonder about the concerns over use of copper, I've got 40m of copper in my house, buying a couple of LED lamps that last 40 years is hardly going to affect the amount of copper in my house.

I've found the LIDL LEDs to be very good, so will be popping along as soons as the store opens.

@ wendy07, I realised that the halogen bulb is also 'energy saving' but couldn't resist the deliberate misunderstanding.

@all those concerned about the polution from LED bulbs, don't forget all the flourescent bulbs and LCD/LED TV screens and monitors you already have in your house or office or even in your car.

Anyone been to see what W these are?

W is irrelevant

What is more relevant is these lamps output 180 lumens, compared to the lamps I bought last year for the same price which were 250 lumens. Don't waste your money, I had to buy chocolate to compensate for an otherwise wasted journey. 180 Lumens is less than the approximate output of a 35w halogen.

W is relevant for me because I purchased some 12w DC 12v LED transformers.

Purchased a pair of MR16 and they are 3w, so I can drive 4 from the one transformer, which is what I was after.

They look more than acceptable to me, so I'll need to visit a different store to get another 2 as it was just screw ins left.

Info on box:


GU5.3
180lm
3W
3000K (warm white)
on/off 50,000
t[h] 25,000 h
V 12V

Instructions contain a warning "The bulb may flicker or be damaged by the use of non_LED-compatible electronic transformers"

I know from previous experience that my 60w built like a brick house transformer did indeed do this.

Crikey these are hens teeth! Each store must only have around 50 and I've been to 3 different ones looking for the MR16s I need.

The GU10s seem to be popular too - lots of the screw in ones to be had.
