Ikea have a great range of led bulbs on sale at the moment. Lower wattage at £1 up to £3 for a 600 lumen dimmable.
Further 10 percent off for ikea family card holders.

Found in store in Cardiff so not sure if national.

Forgot to add these are Edison screw E14 and E27.

Thanks op, been waiting for the prices to drop. Heat.

Thanks

Bought 2 of these last year didn't even last 12 months. Ikea rubbish.

Don't know about the IKEA ones but bought some LED bulbs on amazon last month to replace our old dim halogen bulbs and couldn't believe how bright they were and at a lower wattage. Better in just about every way against halogen.

couldn't agree more they are rubbish,,, the staff tell you that they SHOULD last 25,000 hours. I bought 10 of them at £4. I have just returned yet another one which only lasted 4 months, they argued that they do not guarantee the bulbs but reluctantly changed it, the problem is I live 20 miles from the nearest store so I might just a swell but them from Ebay for much less, and no I didn't do 40 miles to take a bulb back I was collecting something for someone else

I replaced all our kitchen and bathroom ones, still going strobg over a year later...

Much easier to get them exchanged from ebay than Ikea?
Try Home Bargains they have a range at what seem reasonable prices and might be closer to return if and when they fail.
Like most led bulbs they are probably made in China and unless you pay a premium price there's probably a higher than expected failure rate.

Those are the bulbs but much cheaper in the sale.

I think Osrams are £6.99 in Tesco at moment and you can get the bayonet cap ones.

We've been using Ikea LED bulbs for over a year now and had absolutely no problems with any of them (bought 15 so far!)

Good deal for me, hopefully they'll still be on offer next time we're anywhere near Ikea.

There was a review of LED bulbs done by a major organisation, possibly Which, Ikea were in the bottom 3 for reliability. Maybe worth a pound though.

600 lumens is a lot less than old 60 watt bulb, so these ikea bulbs are going to be really dim.

13w ledare = 1000 lumen output.

15w 'low energy' CFL = 860 lumen output.

One is £1 in supermarkets the other a lot more - sorry still think LED has got a long way to go......

Homebase ones are brilliant ours have been going strong for over a year

Banned

none in Bradford/leeds

A lot of people don't realise that in most cases the dimmable ones require new dimmer switches. They shouldn't be failing in less than a year with simple on/off operation though.

LED - constant luminosity from 1st second until they die years later, white light and virtually unbreakable.

CFL - yellow tint, after few months takes ages to warm up and gets dimmer over time, has to be taken to recycling centre and if you happen to drop one, you are advised to leave and ventilate room for at least 20 minutes due to amount of harmful sh*t these are filled with including Mercury vapour.

I can't really see your point here.




My only complain with some clear cover IKEA LEDs are that they project slight circles when switched on. Fine for most ppl but won't work to well in desk lamp for drawing.

No I never suggested it was easier to change on Ebay, however I have had a refund on various things purchased on Ebay from China without any problem. Ikea bulbs are no better quality so why pay more.

£6.50. They take a second to light up, but they are fine. Dimmable, too.

osrams were half that in my tesco the other day - a smaller branch, and I cleared them out of dimmable GU10 4w at £2.50; not posted as I'm not sure other branches are offloading stock but there weren't any SES fittings there just other dimmable Bayonet and E22 standard style bulbs at £3.25

I also got one of these and was shocked that it lasted less than a year, these are not good at all.

Yeah but in the most important factor is colour temp and led strip the **** out of any warmth halogen give.

i think an old 60w was around 800lumens actually, so not much dimmer, kind of halfway between a 40w and 60w old style bulb.

Beware the 1000 lumen one. Got one, and it's a jamming device! Can't listen to the radio with it switched on.

Your existing one might do the trick, and certainly a new one will work. The most important thing to look for is the minimum load rating. You've currently got 5 x 30w = 150w load. A lot of older dimmer switches have a minimum load of 40w. If you buy, say, 5 3w LED bulbs, you've got a load of 15w. Newer LED dimmer switches often have a minimum load rating of 2.5w - so you can dim a single bulb - like a landing light.

Best thing to do is buy the bulbs and try them out. If they flicker or buzz you need to change your dimmer switch. Otherwise the life span of the bulbs will be decreased. (And LEDs aren't cheap!)

Another thing to note which some people aren't aware of - if you have 5 x 3w (15w) and dim them half way, they will use 7.5w of energy. However, if you dim your 5 x 30w (150w) half way, they are using considerably more energy than 75w. Even more savings by switching to LEDs!

Can you point me in the direction of the 2.5w min dimmer switches please?

Got the Ikea range and more expensive branded, the Ikea ones are great and no issues.

For anyone that has problems with these or any other band, I bought a bunch of LED bulbs from 'theledhut'. The ones that came were made by a company called Integral (same company that does the usb sticks, I think) and are really good! I paid about £6 each and am really happy with them. They also come with a 5 year guarantee, so at last you don't need to worry about them viewing for a while.

You get what you pay for in the end...
If you want less hussle you go woth homebase tcps... pricier but 2 years now with no problems...

I don't understand your comment. 13w for 1000 lumens light output is excellent. I think the discussion now has moved beyond whether LED's are good alternatives to the old filament bulbs which produce 10% light 90% heat.

The issue is cost and reliability. Osram's and Megaman's plus others are very reliable and coming down in cost. I have no view on the IKEA bulbs but judging by other peoples comments they don't sound very reliable.

They are all screw bulbs what about Baynet ones?

I bought led bulbs from various eBay sellers & although some are fine, some (e14) died within a few months- replaced with IKEA ones and are still ok after a year!

BEWARE POOR QUALITY LED GLOBES. CHINA IS MANUFACTURING MANY LEDS AT ALL LEVELS OF QUALITY. MANY ARE EXTREMELY POOR AND REALLY CHEAP JUST A FEW RMB (LESS THAN A £) EACH BUT THEY ARE NOT DESIGNED TO LAST.
IF YOU BUY A GOOD LED GLOBE IT WILL LAST BUT IF YOU BUY A POOR ONE IT WILL NOT, THE BIGGEST ISSUE IS KNOWING WHO IS GOOD AND WHO IS NOT, ONE BRAND I KNOW OF IN CHINA THAT IS GOOD IS FIREFLY BUT THE COSTS ARE HIGHER OF COURSE. FIREFLY ARE SOLD BY ALL THE WESTERN SUPERMARKET IN CHINA. THE CHINESE KNOW BETTER WHAT IS QUALITY AT THE RIGHT PRICE MORE THAN THE BUYERS IN THE WEST DO THAT IS WHY IKEA SELL THIS JUNK.
