Found 1st Sep 2015
Aldi is doing an energy saving bulb 11 W/15 W (equivalent to 60 W conventional bulb) or a 7W/9W candle bulb (equivalent to 40W ) for only £1.99 each available starting 3rd Sep. These are usually £8-10 in stores (homebase etc.) and didnt see them cheaper online (amazon)

very hard to compare LED bulbs, the quality of light regardless of wattage varies so much. You can get similar from Poundstretcher all year round for the same price. I prefer to spend a little more on a known 'brand'.
Any guarantee with these

I guarantee they wont last the 15 years they normally print on the box!

It does not mention any warranty but in my experience with Aldi with the original receipt I had never had issues with returns

Poundland also sell led candle bulbs, didnt notice the wattage though, bought some golf bulb led's from there and very pleased
Are these. Dimmable
I bought some from Poundstretcher recently, a GU10 and Edison golf ball for £3.99 each. Both work great and give off a warm white light, think they are Hyundai brand.
I'm not convinced these are LED bulbs, I know it says it in the description but the packaging, price and wattages makes me think they are probably just Energy Saving Bulbs.

A 15W LED bulb should be equal to about 100W standard light bulb... If they really are LED I'm having some, but I think not.
they mention LED in the blurb, but like you say they seem too high a wattage, something not right

Its so frustrating how these types of bulbs vary. I just bought a load of ones from the homebase clearance which I'm very happy with. I also see you can get 100W LEDs for floodlights now as well. I expect as this technology gets better the performance between them will level out.

How do you know?
They look very similar to the one mentioned on this page, suggesting that they are not LED: translate.google.com/tra…xt=

'Wattages' have absolutely nothing to do with whether these are LED, all the signs are that they are simple CFL lamps, but the watts doesn't say anything more than, if LED they are older LED chips, the efficiency of LEDs has been improving year on year, so modern LEDs can achieve 100W incandescent output for around 13W, but you pay for it.

The dead giveaway has to be the fact the pictured boxes don't have LED plastered all over the packaging, I can't think of any LED lamps that don't make a song and dance about them being LED.

Just bought some, and I'm pretty sure these are not LED even though the Aldi offer leaflet says they are. No mention of LED on the boxes, but the clincher for me is that they take about half a minute to reach full brightness. LEDs do not have a warm-up delay. Going to phone their CS.
UPDATE: Spoken to CS - they investigated and confirm these are NOT LED, so my money will be happily refunded.
I've seen them yesterday, they are not LED as mentioned above. The price is to high for CFL so voted cold.
Read the reviews on the Aldi site - these are NOT LED bulbs and the Aldi response does NOT contradict the comments. AVOID
