100 of these would be hot

Picked one up at Screwfix for £7.xx something or other. Just the job so it was.

Any ideas how much it would cost to get one of these fitted? Would like one above the porch, but I don't think there's any electricity line out there to hook it up to.

They are not the same same. The ones at wickes that are cheaper are inferior to this one.

The ones at wickes are like this argos.co.uk/sta…htm

You can fit lower wattage bulbs into these, 500watts is a bit over the top. Look for 200w or 300w bulbs at 117mm long, they are cheap enough.
You can also fit 20w energy saving bulbs into these although you don't get instant maximum light, you do get a smaller electric bill, however it also will take a while to claw back the price of the energy saving bulb.
Stick with 200w/300w, that way you can run 2 lights in different areas of your property for the price of one 500w light.

I'm happy with my powerbee solar floodlight no bills and lights my garden up no problem this looks a decent light though if u want a wired supply

Also available at Homebase for the same price, if you have one closer to where you live (for collection).

If you buy one of these, please, please please put a hood over it or shine it down rather than outwards towards neighbours properties and/or contributing to light pollution and wasting energy.

I am sure you can still only use a 150 PIR, any higher it needs to go in the garden... you could run some cable with a plug to the PIR yourself they are as easy to fit as a plug

Thanks for this. Was going to pay more for a similar light!

Good buy. Voted "Hot". Thanks.

Anyone know if you can use lower wattage bulbs in this? Also any recommendations for energy saving bulbs?

That's great! Was looking to but a 230W which gives 300W but I guess 330w for 500w might be ok. Thanks for the info

Been looking at this for a while so the £10 price drop is a cracker... Thank you...

If you're after low energy, see if you can find one of these anywhere - LIDL are all sold out, you might find one elsewhere on the web though.

I fitted 2 of these in my garden last year.
These are very good quality compared to most at a similar price.
The light can be angled up/down and left/right. Usually only up/down is possible at this price.
Only one caution: These are designed to be installed with the cable passing directly from the wall into the back of the light. Lots of these style lights allow the cable to feed in from the side. Modification is possible with care and parts if required however.
I fitted 300w tubes as that is plenty for me.
