Gradually converting the house to LED bulbs as the old ones pop, and found this bargain at screwfix - even the person behind the counter was surprised. Only the 25W available for 99p, the rest are around £2.99. Really good quality light, and seems brighter than the stated 25W.

3.2 W led = 25w normal bulbs

It is cheap but it is only 3.2watts and 250 lumen are you only using it as an under cupboard light or in a display cabinet ?

Using it in wall lights as a pair.

Bargain............if you have Edison screw fittings....is that something that is fitted into new houses now?

Managed to find some 450 lumen bulbs in pound land recently but I think it was a discontinued item. If people want a few more lumens check them out.
Heat for this though!

Yes, I could do with a few more moomins

I'd recommend buying at least 11W LED bulbs for use in ceiling lights as anything below is just too dimm. You could maybe get away with using 9W LED bulbs but is the equivalent of a 40W halogen.

Heat for the deal though but don't use these bulbs as your primary light source in rooms.

I agree - have a supposedly 60W in the sitting room and it doesn't put out enough light.

Got exited then thought it was going to be 25w = 200w

Ideal bulb for a torch..........

Cold. Misleading post, it's a 3.2w LED, not 25W. A 25W LED would be 200W equivalent.

Woefully Misleading ....

250 lumens , 3W is old LED generation.. I vaguely remember seeing these few watts LED at £land in their regular stock. 250 lumens is OK as a night light (or old bulb 25W icandescent equivalent).

Looks like we have to learn what lumens are now, as going with wattage is getting way to complicated because there are even better Led bulbs

LOL, I'm buying 18W LED's, and you expect me to fit a 3.2W LED ?
I've got brighter LEDs on my DVD player

I wouldn't stick one of those in the fridge.

Snap.
Title should really state 3.2w LED.

It is dimmer than my LED torch. No, thanks.

The only reason this is getting heat
- needs expiring

great price

10w really is a minimum to provide adequate light in a room.. These would be OK in a side light just for mood.

brighter than a phillips 5w older energy saving and also brighter that the ordinary 40w filament bulb, could be subjective but that is what I see in the exactly same situation. I also found out that even a good 5watts led spotlight is brighter than a 50w halogen(branded make and new halogen)

Much like my recent experience at Dunelm, and B&Q they'll be out of stock of any useful LED Wattages and have load and loads of sub 40W equivalents on the shelves. I don't think they can even give these low Watt equivalents away?

This is pretty good for me I have a ceiling light with 8 40w (old style) candle bulbs -3 of them stopped working a while back, so that's 5 x 40w at the moment = 200w.

If I replace all 8 (including the blown ones) with these I will have the same/similar output but only using one-fifth of what I am currently using.

My head hurts

Thanks ordered

Actually, at that level of efficiency, no, not much.

​Oh dear...

Thanks OP, perfect for our bedroom where we have a twin light housing these, ordered and heat.

it doesn't work quite like that, yes lumens are cumulative, but only if directed to the same spot.
What you'll have is a bunch of ultra dim 25W bulbs in roughly the same area.

short answer - it's going to look bloody awful.

also, these are not candle shaped.
get some candle LED rated at 40W, they'll run at 4W each so much the same.

the filament versions look pretty cool, even when switched off
