Try Dunelm. Good quality and cheap price.
Used bulbs? Who used them? Is there anything special about those?
I got stung with "used - like new" for a Hue smart button last month, the previous buyer returned everything bar the actual button in the original packaging
I’d be wary of the non-ambience. I’ve brought used white bulbs from Amazon in the past, and found that they don’t fully turn off. I had one in my bedroom and it gave a very light glow.

People order them, find that they've ordered the wrong type or it doesn't do what they expected and return it. It's a Philip's Hue smart bulb, you can control it remotely and integrate it with smart home devices like Google home to control it with your voice, set schedules... Loads of stuff, this one if just a basic white one, they're also available in other shapes, sizes and colours.

Which might well be a fault in the wiring. An easy way to test this is to screw in a CFL bulb turn it on for a little while and then turn it off see if it glows. If not then touch the tip of the bulb and see if it glows if not no wiring problem.

Its not a wiring problem. Had other bulbs in the same lights with no problem. Also, tried the bulb in different lights and the same thing happened.
If you read the reviews of the non-ambient white hue bulbs, it’s a common fault.
Plus, I’ve also now changed the bulb in that light to a hue colour bulb, and this doesn’t glow when switched off.
I bought the twin pack 'used' from Amazon the other week and they are great. A tad brighter than my equivalent Hive bulbs for some reason.

if you have the bayonet style, flip them over, so the live and neutral swap sides....that works a fair amount of the time
Otherwise this can be a 'thing' due to poor earthing and older / odd wiring configurations
the bulbs aren't faulty, they're just highlighting that there are oddities in the wiring

newer hue bulbs have designed around this so you don't see it so often

It’s not the bayonet fitting, it’s the E27 fitting. And the light fitting was 2 months old from Ikea, so it’s not that either. It’s a common thing on the original non-ambient hue lights - look it up, there are plenty of feeds on the internet and they all relate to these bulbs (before the introduction of the ambient whites).
As I’ve said, I’ve since changed the white bulb for a coloured hue bulb and the issue has gone. But I’ve used the white bulb in a different light (porch and hallway) and the same thing happens, and does so with all 3 of those white non-ambient type of bulbs I brought at the same time.
For me, the light glow wasn’t an issue, I was just warning people that they might find this happening.
All of the bulbs in my house are Philips hue (including GU10’s in the kitchen and bathroom) and the only issue I’ve ever had is with the non-ambient whites (which I also brought as returns from Amazon).
Thanks op bought 2
Should have bought them when the 20% off was on...

I've had plenty from the warehouse though and no problems at all.
Fyi all, it's now down to £8.48p - they are just trying to tempt me with another (and it worked!).
Used bulb lol

Oh, do you think so, why? I have purchased several and not one of them have ever been registered on any WiFi system at all. Have you had other experiences?

Because you make no sense


Stop asking stupid questions and go back to school.
