Did they have gu10 bulbs in that new range, they was just putting them out in Wigan and they said was unsure what was there to unpack, the ones that was £5 for 2 was sold out.

Are these dimmable?

I saw the new gu10's in York yesterday, they was in a packet same as the ones in the op. But they didn't have all the other fittings.

Great to see some comprehensive photos showing all the selections available. Just a shame it's easier to find out where Michael Jackson is currently renting than finding a branch of Home Bargains round my way.

Any mr16 / gu5.3?

Michael Jackson renting LOL, I thought it was widely known he's bought a place with Elvis.

Look good, if the new ones are anywhere as good as the gu10's they have been selling then you can't go wrong.

Got 2 candle e14 ones for £3.99 each. The screw in ones that typically go into lamps.

in my local home bargains Doncaster they have had the GU 10 led bulb for at least the past two months two for a fiver I bought 10 of them

I bought one E14 and the color of light is very 'cold winter day', good for outdoor or pantry.

Just a word of warning incase anybody is as daft as me......don't use a normal dimmer switch thing as it tends to blow up your led lights and the dimmer self destructs too.
Get the special one for led bulbs

so you need a special dimmer switch? so its not just the case of swapping the lights over from normal to led?

Anyone know the wattage/lumens of the GU10's?

And are they wide or narrow beam? Generally a narrow beam GU10 will consist or 3 or 4 LED's in the centre, whereas wide often have quite a lot of LED's spread across the face of the bulb

I would say that depends on the lens (if it has one), not the arrangement of the LED's

Hence I said 'generally'. They often don't have proper lenses though, and from what I've seen previously wider spread LED's often result in a wide beam in GU10 bulbs.

GU 10 's not dimmable, 120° beam angle, 2 different types, 1.warm white 370 lumens....2.daylight 395 lumens

You don't, but you do need a low voltage one, if you find one in a shop like B&Q or Home base i'd be very impressed! I had to buy one from LEDhut.co.uk, , I asked electricians, staff at homebase and B&Q and they all laughed at me... traditionally dimmer switches have been sold on the max load they can take as people like to line bulbs up, only good quality ones can take low loads

Its been over a year since I bought mine, but the lowest I've found is 12w,, ok as long as you have 3 led bulb's, I've had regular voltage dimmers short out after being advised by an electrician they will be fine...I also find dimmable led's don't seem to dim as low as a regular bulb, and you can tell if you have a cheap dimmer as they will start flicking at low light output

I don't know if its a daft question but how these GU10's never come in anything higher than 40W?

I've replaced a couple of mine in the kitchen but they are so dim compared to the 60W halogen they replaced.

I wouldn't mind paying a bit more for a higher watt one.

Bought a couple of the 4 watt LED "golf ball" bulbs to replace two Tesco energy saving bulbs (which I noticed the other week were 20 watt each).

The LED bulbs seem a lot brighter than the ones they've replaced.

Are these any good I need some e14 I'm just not sure if they are any good do they last long I was going to get some for £6.50. And iv just put some spot lights for b&q am I alrite just changing putting led gu10
