Dammit screwfix' I paid £6 for the Luceco version of this last week thanks to a similar deal posted on here

I'd have bought this one given the chance.

As for the light 10w is ok to cover a small to medium size area - I used mine to light up the inside of my shed at night and it works a treat.

Heat added - great spot OP.

Personally think the Luceco model for £5.99 is better looking and better quality, bought two last week for new house move and the so called 20 watt Ebay one for £8 was no where as bright on testing between the two.
But for value this is better.
pennyfarthing88 - don't worry you might have bought the better one.
Wolf 2010- already posted yeh but people just come across something they might want but did not do a search, where here just to help after all

I wouldn't agree it's a duplication as that deal wasn't specific where as this post is.

get the 20w for about £2 more this is a little weak imo

Luceco for me. The name just sounds better. Lap reminds me of Christmas

Get the 20w

Thanks ordered that & the lamp that was on the other day. £8.38 a bargain

got the 20w and very happy with it

Got the 20w, but wouldn't have seen it, if not for the thread here. Cheers all

Make sure you use a fully qualified electrician to install these guys! 😝

If these (and similar electrical items like sockets) should apparently only be installed by "qualified electricians" as per EU regs, perhaps someone could explain why they are still allowed to be be sold in DIY stores?

And maybe the EU should also insist all plumbing jobs (like changing washers) are only done by qualified plumbers?

I got 5 of the 10w non-PIR versions for £2.99 each last week (seeing the original deal), and bought a PIR sensor for a tenner. Wired them up over the weekend... And now when I go to the back porch, I feel like saying 'Let there be light', and there was light!
5 of them put together makes it pretty bright.

loads of reviews about these coming on even in daylight?

How long before you can post something again

There's a Lux setting that would stop that.

None of mine come on during the day that I've noticed but I have adjusted the Lux setting to dark.

I think they are very well made for the money.

I got two of the Luceco ones last week to replace rather rusty and poor looking ones and they work perfectly. I don't think the light for 10w is too low, but I am using mine to light up over a back door, like a security light more than a floodlight

With led the wattage doesn't dictate the brightness u need to look at the Lumens

I noticed last night that my 50w floodlight was glowing very slightly in the dark. Didn't do that the night before..hmm.

All of the 10 & 20w units were perfect.

Is this just the light,u have to buy the cable for power seperately,and do the wiring urself?

Yes

Question - I already have a flood light with no sensor if I was to get this is it a simple straight forward swap/install ?

Yes indeed.

Is your old flood light the type where it came without a cable as well?

If it is, that's the easiest option, otherwise, you need to cut off the exisiting cable in the old light, then strip the wires and reconnect (obviously make sure any power is turned off).

I put a small amount of grease on the thread of the bolts that are used to connect the light unit with the bracket.

I found that my old flood light bolts tend to rust up very easily.

Is the brightness full when first or do they take a while to achieve full brightness?

That's a bit strange surely? It's alternating current so you'd think it wouldn't make any odds.

I'll double check that I have the wires the correct way around tomorrow if it's still glowing tonight after dark. I read elsewhere it could be due to a poor earth connection.

Will report back either way!

Instantaneous, full brightness, as far as I can tell.

I have a compact fluorescent PIR light and it was very slow to reach full brightness until I swapped out the standard CFL bulb for a Home Bargains 9w LED.

only got black and red electrical cables going into my old light in the back garden. I believe I need to buy a double insulated light which doesn't require an earth cable? are these available to buy anywhere?

I've got one of my 10w LEDs wired up with only the two wires as that's what was there previously. The light has been working perfectly prior to changing to the new unit last week.

Qualified electrician, don't make me laugh.you can do it yourself if you are competent on wiring regs, easy to look up on net, as long as you are a practical person?, Comments please

What cable do people use for wiring these up? Can't decide between twin and earth black rubber or just flex any ideas guys ?

Very good point, it's ok though I don't mind because I get to go and make money when it "doesn't work"

I am a qualified electrician and completely rewired my current house. I also completely re-plumbed it. It ain't rocket science....live neutral earth.........flow and return.........easy peasy which is why so many folks do these jobs themselves.Never have these 2 trades been so highly overated due to b*ll*cks regulations.

IP44? Do yourself a favour and buy a better protected unit - this will just fill with water and fail.

Well my freshly earthed 50w unit is glowing dimly in the garden... I'll try reversing the live and neutral connections tomorrow.

Well I completely rewired the light unit yesterday and made sure the live and neutral were connected correctly and checking it last night, I'm very pleased to say that there's no glowing of the unit at all now

all gone up to crazy prices, wondering if they were all mispriced: screwfix.com/sea…led
