When does this start. Couldn't find on their website

Just looked at last year's same deal. Apparently 100lumens is not bright enough 400 is about a 50w bulb

If they are anything like the Duracell halogens that Asda sell, then they are a waste of time. At best they lasted for a week before blowing, most broke within an hour.

Non of the common bayonet type by the looks of it, just the less common screw ones.

Ive had the Duracell halogen GU10 equivs in my kitchen for a long while now, all 5 still going without issue

very low brightness, cant see how these would be usable.

this wattage is equilivent to 20 watt normal bulb

i suppose it then all depends on what the usage is, i.e. multiple bulb fittings etc. I think im running 200lumens led g9's which replaced 25w bulbs, so i do thik 20w of a conventional bulb would be 100 lumens

yep just checked, a 20w halogen should put out anywhere between 180-220 lumens, so these 100 lumens would be like 10w bulbs, and they are not very bright.

if these are LED lights rather than SMDs inside the bulbs then they are a complete waste of money...SMDs all the way

smd's are a simply led's mounted onto a circuit board with a phosphor over them

The wattage/lumens is far too low for 99% of uses.
Your better off trying your luck at Home Bargains they have GU10 5w led bulbs for £2.99 each, far more practical its just the stock is a little erratic (they had 3 boxes of cool white, no warm white :().

Yes thanks, I am aware of what a surface mounted diode is....I was merely trying to make a point that most of the LED bulbs that are going cheap in stores at the moment are the old style LED bulbs and not the SMD style...

When we had solar installed a few years ago I purchased and installed a few hundred pounds worth of 5050SMD GU10 down lighters and they are brilliant, bright as if not brighter than a standard 50 watt gu10 and use considerably less power and last much much longer....mine were all purchased from ebay and now the same bulbs can be had for as low as £3 each if bought in bulk (which is what would normally be done if replacing bulbs anyway as colour temps rarely match up on mismatching bulbs)

my house too is now completely led, down to the 50w floodlight in the back which is using a cob emitter.its costs quite a bit to do, but its nice to know that my 3 light fittings which take 5 g9's each for example which normally burn 25w a bulb are only burning 3w a bulb. as long as the bulbs last, ill make my money back eventually in energy savings and cost of bulbs, and save the planet at the same time

it does feel good to know that even if you leave a few lights on by mistake that its not going to cost the earth......especially as my soon to be three year old loves turning on (and leaving) lights now...

My dad uses the COB lights in Malaysia and they are amazing at what they do, I have no doubt that interior bulbs will go that way too at some point in time

they already have, they just cost a lot more, but im sure as the older smd style become more widely adopted, cobs will come down in price too.

id honestly say keep your money, and buy them from a uk based seller on ebay, you will get much more for your money. bulbs like this give led lighting a bad name!

What a load of tosh, gives a bad name. Every bulb has it's place, these won't be any good for direct main lighting, but ideal for accent lighting, lamps, under stairs and so on.

COB lighting is already available in UK, all they consist of is multiple smd on a single plate

I got some last time. Still working and reduced my kitchen lighting from 200 watts to 16 watts. Do for me.

course they will, people may buy these expecting them to be as good as their conventional incandescents or halogens, and will be dismayed to see how little light is generated. Not everybody looks at lumens, and to be honest, not all manufacturers are completely honest about what the bulb is designed to replace.

Oh and COB is a completely different manufacturing process that allows for higher densities of leds which result in what looks like one emitter in smaller compact packages. SMD's cant match the performance of a cob for the size.

Not worth the candle! Too dim to be any use unless you want a night-light.
