Things like this are sometimes 5 for a £ at Tesco etc.

10 for £1 @ Poundland

I think this is going to get as cold as the colour these bulbs give out ;-)
Surely they must have been in any supermarket, discount store etc, where they are almost paying you to take them.

Sorry, can get cheaper at so many places...

reminds me of that mastercard ad where they say an energy saving bulb costs £5

The OP has used an image of the stick type bulb in his posting, this is an unfortunate choice because that type is available very cheaply in supermarkets. But Amazon are selling a wide range of energy saving lamps that are rarely discounted. So this is a good deal if you are wanting the less common type of lamps.

Watch these things, we have them all over the house. The other day the house filled up with a horrible burning plastic smell, looked all over and couldn't locate it. Went upstairs and the light was switched on but it was not lit, instead it was glowing and had small sparks near the base. After nearly pooing my pants I flicked the switch to off, waited and removed the bulb..... it was charred and black and stunk!!!! Its a Philips bulb, one you should be able to trust?!? I managed to find one site that said it was "nornal" when they were on their last legs but its really worried me. We leave it on for our 5yr old at night, what would have happened if we had been asleep, the smoke alarm didnt trip for some reason (checked and they work fine), if some hot plastic had dropped it would have cut us off from both him and our escape route!!!!

If anyone has any info on this I'd love to hear, there are tons of reports of this on US sites where these things have been mandatory for while with the sounds of it. Scary!!!! Im emailing Philps so lets see what fob off they give!

cheaper @ Morrisons 5 for 10p ! or 29p each :roll:

I'm going against the grain and voting hot.

Most of the 10 x £1 lamps are heavily subsidised by energy companies using them to gain (IMHO) false carbon credits, and are of a low wattage and low quality.

Lamps over 20W (100W equiv) tend not to be subsidised, so you have to pay the full £5-10 price.

Most of the lamps in the Amazon list are good quality brands, and some have a format / feature you'd usually get fleeced for (dimmables, r50 spots etc.). Checking a couple against the prices I recently paid at my local electrical factors, Amazon are cheaper (20-30%), and they get delivered free of charge to your door.

So whilst not every lamp is a bargain, there are enough to get a hot vote from me.

A random example:
Megamann R50 SES:

Amazon = £4.90 incl delivery
amazon.co.uk/Meg…032
CPC = £9.67 + delivery

Rufus.

Yes very cheap all over the place, but I've not found the equivalent of 100W very cheap.

good price for colour temperature >6000k. i.e pure white light not the yellow ones

i think you are wrong on this point, i do not believe that energy companies are allowed to count CFLs towards there carbon reduction targets, they use to by able to but not any more, also i am not sure about other companies but i know scottish and souther energy definitely subsidised the 100w equivalent bulbs as we have around 3000 cfls sat in our office at work given to us by s and s to give away for free and i think they are all 60 or 100w equivalents
