Livarno lux 3W led clip on lamp £3.99 @ Lidl

7
Found 13th Feb 2015
Good value for those looking for a workshop, loft light, bedroom light.
Have taken details off the German website as they go into more detail (annoyingly) than uk listings!

Features:
Functional design with flexible metal
Lampshade made of satined glass
Powerful and furniture gentle clamping foot
Supply cord approx 2.0 m - with integrated switch
Including LED lamp GU10 35 Watt equivilent for bright and pleasant light

This unit appears to be a re-model of the old halogen unit (as was advertised) with a uk mains capable led bulb as a replacement.

Is the bulb replaceable, and if so, what fitting does it have?

I'm sure the LEDs will last a lifetime anyway, just wondering if I can put a brighter bulb in if needed.

Voted hot anyway as the best I've found so far for a similar product is £2.99 in Home Bargains, however this is just a light fitting with no bulb and doesn't have the flexible stick part between the clip and the light.

surely they can't be making a profit on this? I recently bought a really nice light fitting from ikea that could clip or be wall mounted and then bought a 4.5watt 300 lumen led for £6 delivered from an led online retailer. This price is crazy!

GU10 according to this poster's description. I'd wait until you got it home before you order a brighter bulb though.

which for the purpose of a bedside light is just fine for the majority, sounds like you may wish to buy a 150w flood based on possible myopic vision & "squint print" books, cos a close light source to a book, or for crafting does not need to be 100W, as lumens output rating is often based at metres distance in lab / lightbox testing circumstances.

but seriously, this is not whole room lighting, just need to get your head around leds & their output (which is always going upward in terms of output).

the highest number of lumens you can get per watt available in shops at reasonable cost is about 70 lumens per watt so this is around 200 lumens which is about the same brightness as a 25w halogen bulb which for most people is fine but for me it is too dull hence why i bought a 4.5w 300 lumens bulb which is fantastic.

Have some heat - I was going to get something similar from Ikea - these seem better & cheaper! I also noticed the 3-in-1 night light for £7.99, cheapest I have seen it the Robert Dyas version @ £9.99 (reduced from £14.99)!

My main headtorch as LED is brighter than this, which I use almost every day, & comparared to the perfectly useful (but not well made) Argos Acrylic led flexi head clip on from a few years back this looks altogether "proper" so as I reiterate fine for most bedside, gentle illumination, enough to get across the room etc.

Whilst I haven't got this unit myself (wife busy sorting out NHS chaos) based on previous model the led will be a drop in bulb I'm guessing, however this is the same unit as was supplied with a halogen bulb not long ago, so a drop in replaceable makes lots of sense to me.
If anyone passes the store please verify.
