Dimmable LED Bulb B22 1521 13w - £3 instore @ Morrisons Norfolk

Posted 5th OctAvailable: NationalEdited by:"Phsycronix"
I had to post this as this is the cheapest "supermarket" bulb of this type I have found yet. This is a 1521 lumen (100w equivalent) bayonet bulb, but most importantly - IT'S DIMMABLE. Even their non-dimmable version is £1 more (£4). Tesco version is £8 (£7 for non-dim,) Wilko are £8 so three quid is a no-brainer really.

This bulb doesn't appear on the website but it's not a clearance item or "special price" either. It's a normal SEL.

Specs:
LED GLS bulb x 1
B22 - Std Bayonet fitting
1521 lumens (100w equiv)
13w
25yr life (25,000 hrs) - (based on 2.7hrs use per day)
A+ Energy rating
Colour temp - 2700k (Warm light - i.e. yellow)
Dimmable
Frosted 'glass'
Dimensions - 60mm wide / 119mm tall

I have tried it already with an old dimmer-switch and it worked perfectly. No flicker or humming either! It does 'dim' in stages mind you, not all the way down to nothing like an old incandescent but this is to be expected.

If you have seen a single, dimmable bulb with this specification for less than £3 (from a bricks 'n' mortar shop) I would be most interested to know where as I have looked all over the place. I did have a look on the likes of Screwfix (who don't appear to even do one!) and Amazon but I couldn't find anything close.

All the best, Phsy.

*** UPDATE ***
Until the 29th October, these are available on special offer: 2 for £5.00 making them an even better deal.

Hi Karan4u. I hunted for a photo before posting but there isn't a single one on Google! I did find this one however and it is exactly that same packaging but 1521 where it says "806" and "Bayonet" where it says screw. Of course the bulb itself is pictured as a bayonet bulb, not an Edison screw:

I would post a photo but I just turned my digi-camera on and the batteries went flat! Typical. I can't believe there's not a single picture on the web. I'll charge up my batteries and have another go later.

Just in case anyone wants to know:

Try cpc farrnell
I made a mistake and bought loads of 60W bulbs led ones

They too bright they like 100W
New (rather poor camera photo!) picture from in a store today. "New" product range so I guess that's why it's not on the website yet...

Still puzzling why the non-dimmable version is more expensive. Hey-ho.
Just seen these on special offer until 29th Oct :- 2 for £5.00 making them £2.50 each. This is definitely the cheapest 'supermarket' dimmable bulb of this type I've seen yet.
Do you not have to fit a special dimmer switch for these to cope with the low wattage?
