Last time this was posted was over a year ago, so reposting. Wattages have also increased to 5W. Various sizes available:

Bayonet Candle BC22

Bayonet Golfball BC22

Edison Screw E14

Edison Golf Bulb E14

Despite being only 5W I found these much better & brighter than the ones I bought on Amazon for 1p plus £2.25 postage.

These Poundland LED are very good, I purchased 5 in January and they have worked well. I would mention that I have wished to purchase more and the St Albans store does not sell them. Hopefully they have restarted so will look next time.

are these dimmable?
may consider swapping out the halogen one I have outside front door.
It's lit dimly from dusk till dawn and has PIR which makes it brighter on detecting movement. Just need to check fitting.

Thanks op

I bought 3 of these golf ball ES 5w bulbs a couple of months ago as a trial for a (non dimmable) hall light fitting - all 3 were dead in little over a month. Disappointing.

I bought 2, bother were flickering.

Great for planting.

The light has rather unpleasant cold bluish tone.

​The ones I bought were 2700 Kelvin, which is warm white.

I have bought a few poundland LED bulbs - all 5w
The GU10's have been fine ( possibly because they are in a fitting that does not get used much )
All others have failed or started flickering within a few weeks (both bayonet and ses fitting )

I would not buy any more now the prices are dropping elsewhere ( Screwfix - LAP brand bulbs are much better ) ..

I've had 15 poundland candle type fitting bulbs for over a year and all been fine. Also got 5 of the spotlight types in my bathroom for just under a year, one did go but all been fine other than that.

had 5 of these from 6 months ago and they all died, long lasting ok lol imo of course

I have also previously purchased both 3W and 5W versions of these LED lamps from Poundland and had failures within a week or two mainly of the 5W versions. I did some research and a clever chap (bigclivedotcom) on YouTube did a tear down of them and found that the Poundland 5W lamps were prone to overheatIng. I have since replaced (returned for a refund) all the failed 5W sealed type LED lamps and replaced them with a new style Poundland 5W LED lamp, but with air vent fins / slits round the top of the bulb. Since then not a single failure, and have had them on the go for at least 6 months. So if you are intending to buy the 5W versions of these LED lamps, I would suggest that you only go for the the improved ventilated ones, rather than the fully sealed golf ball type, (or any type that is fully sealed). Hope this helps someone. good luck!

good find op, heat added

Cant say ive tried the poundland ones yet - but the Home bargains ones are excellent. Not had one fail yet.

They don't last long , after 6 months , blink out .

Bought the 5w led from my local pound shop and they have been great
Made by electrek both the bayonet and ses cap 330 Lumen's are very bright
Just not impressed with the gu10
3 months and not a problem . Well worth a pound each.


I have a couple of the golf ball LED bulbs from Poundland, probably a few years old* - still chugging along. The one I have in my bathroom is used every day - the other one is in a lamp. Think those earlier ones were Status branded (?).

*Actually, the thread mentioning mine is around 1 year, 7 months old

They're not dimmable, we fell foul of that and had to buy new switches to replace the dimmers. You can get dimmable LEDs but they're a lot more money - well outside Poundland pricing!

I've fitted quite a few of these from £land over the past year or so - no failures so far.
These are not dimmable.

are you sure the do the Edison screw? I believe they only do the small one, can you confirm,please?
Good quality I think

I've bought most of the different types of LED bulbs from Poundland, all have proven reliable thus far (6 months) apart from the GU10 5W, which has had about 50% failure rate (5 of 10 bulbs failed). The 3W GU10 seems okay though.

I could only find SES size as well but you can get the big Edison Screw with a cheap adapter off eBay or Amazon if you need and it's still less than hunting for a different bulb unit.

Bought over 30 of the GU10 330Lumens 5W types and most have been on constantly for over a month. Bought from poundworld. Not one failure... yet.
These are the Electrek ones, although noticed there are 2 different types. Some had 330lumens on the front of the box, others had 5W, so slightly different packaging, lumens and wattage the same for both however. The 330lumens one are I suspect the improved version, the other ones identified as 5w, you can spot the LEDs through the cover, whereas the 330lumens ones are a smoother look.
Both types excellent however to date, very bright and hell of a lot cheaper to run than using halogens which were in our house.

yep have to agree. Had my home bargains one over 2 years now and not a single issue with the 8 I bought. Think they are only about £1.50 at the mo too.

330lm just isn't bright enough, not for a main ceiling light anyway, OK for lamps.

I bought lots of different types of LED bulbs from Poundland. Some died within a few weeks, some lasted a few months. Not sure I would trust them. They all got very hot.

Don't go for the 5watt versions, they overheat. Out of 40, 11 failures in 4 months. Poundland will only warranty 30days with receipt (after emailing their head office regard poor reliability).
Look at CPC they have more reliable bulbs for that not much more, with 12 month warranty.... Oh, and FREE delivery over a fiver!

The GU10 had a better light output than our NxtGen ones which we paid a ridiculous amount for - just a shame they don't do dimmable ones too.
