any idea how much wattage these use, thanks in advance.

25w look at the picture

Boom. I bid £2,500 for the contents of that lock-up

Just been outside to see how bright they are in complete darkness and they are super bright.... in a garage of that size I could have probably got away with 2 fittings. With the four though it will give me perfect light to finish painting those skirting boards (no excuses now)

Heat for effort!! (_;)

Looking at those pictures lets play a game.... "Spot the Lidl/Aldi branded/purchased items" I'll start you off... on the left is a Parkside Jet Wash.

Motorbike in the corner is mine!

How hard are these to wire up, I currently have a standard, house hold type drop bulb fitting in my garage

Ladders on the floor resting the light fittings are Aldi!

There are some very difficult ones.......

Bike cover.... Lidl hehe
Just above the bike (you can just see a red handle on a portable battery jump starter).... LIDL (about 15 years old and still going).

The lights are completely sealed except the terminal end, which has a small twin terminal connector, that pushes into the end and then has a threaded end with a gromit to seal it all up. The terminals could be better to be honest but are absolutely fine once tightened.

Yep... Workzone (Aldi) Titanium Drill/Impact Driver... been very good indeed.

The Workzone box at the back is an adjustable decorating/pasting table

And yes the VDE screwdriver set is a recent buy from Aldi

The step up ladders with the skirting on them?.... surprisingly they are from Wickes but similar ones were in Aldi recently

On the back wall..... metal/magnetic board is Lidl I think.... got to be 15 years old, the plastic trays/holders next to it are Aldi I think.... 7 years or so old.

Ah the black bungee cords.... Aldi I think

There are some more believe it or not hehehe.... very difficult and you might have to guess a bit as they are not branded.

Haha. I bet you didn't realise your garage would come under such scrutiny when you posted the deal op. Hot

Can you advise the lumen output for these fittings.... and the colour temperature if that's marked up on the box too.

Cheers

Currently a 19 watt version of this in Screwfix is £36.99. I fitted it during the week and the customer was delighted. So this is great value. 19 watt = 1970 lumen

Anyone know if these interfere with FM radio ?

thanks OP. I've been thinking about getting 6 of these for my garage and shed but wasn't sure how good they would be.... I think I'll take the risk....

Would these be better than 80w 6ft flourescents.

Original Poster

I'd say roughly about the same brightness, but obviously a lot less power

I'll answer my own question as I've managed to find a store which still has stock

2400 lumen and a quoted 4000k colour temperature (Neutral / cool white)

Looks like some advertising photos for Aldi products. Is there anything not from Aldi in the photos ?

Heat for the photos.

I'd be a bit cautious about saying light output is equivalent. Have a look at this chart. A 6ft fluorescent tube gives 5600-6400 lumens. Much more than 2400 lumens from this fitting. One thing against the fluorescent is that its output is 360degree, whereas the LED fitting is more directional.

Picked up three tonight, wired one up and it's good.

Slightly blue tint to the light compared with fluorescent tube, and definitely not the same spread, but get enough to cover your garage and you will be fine.

Plus points are that it's instant brightness, cheap to run, and good for my damp garage as it's IP65

I bought a couple of these for my loft do you need a junction box for it? as it doesn't seem you would be able to daisy chain them..

Yes although the terminal will probably take two cores of cable I wouldn't risk it.... it's just as easy to use a junction box really. That said I'm not an electrician so seek advice if you are unsure.

I went to my local Lidl at 8am but they were all sold (Lichfield).

I went to 6 stores to get enough
