So no bayonet mount - the most popular UK type of lightbulb. Clearly Lidl's UK chief buyer is not of British origin.

for example - have 17 bayonet lightbulb sockets but only 1 x E27 , and 3 x GU10 in my house

Well only have GU10 and E27 in mine so thanks op(y)
A useful conversion chart to compare Watts, Lumens

So these E27 screw thread bulbs are only 40watt equivalent

ES (E27) and SES are potentially dangerous I think, as if incorrectly wired, but working, the outer screw thread which can sometimes be touched can be live.
Might try one of these to see they're better than the pound shop ones. Pound stretcher have GU10 for 89p now but the blue one is very blue!

you have to consider the whole thing is live really if wired in a two-way switch either is probably correct.
cheers

Hold on that price is for one not six. Not so good a deal

First thing I ever do when going into rental properties is to test all the 13 amp sockets with a plug in tester to confirm everything is as it should be. You'd be surprised how often the earth is missing which can cause a live chassis if a fault occurs, Live and Neutral reversed etc. Far too many unqualified have a go electricians or keen DIYers these days. A neon screwdriver will be able to quickly establish if the E27 screw thread is live on a product or ceiling fitting,this can be remedied simply by reversing the wires if you're qualified to do so.
Thank u

I don't think so.
You mean a ganged switch anyway (A switch that will simultanously switch two (or more) independent connections) A two way switch will switch one connection in either of two ways.
In freestanding light fittings if they have a mains switch ok. (Metal parts of the llight fitting not part of the circuit, should be earthed of course).
In house wiring, the live only is switched, so it's important it goes to the SES/ES central connection..

Probably why we don't have screw type bulbs in this country?

SES/ES are screw types available in this country (as well as in Europe and the rest of the world) Our voltage is 230 volts, however and more likely to be lethal.
Sir George Lane Fox Pitt developed the bayonet connector lightbulb, it took its name from the quick and secure way in which bayonets were fixed to guns, the bulbs used in most of the British colonies around the world, Thomas Edison invented the Edison screw light fitting. Both have advantages and disadvantages ES can cross thread,vibrate loose, thats why they're not used in car or aeroplane environments, be partly screwed in causing a bad contact that can arc or overheat the bulb and fitting, the glass bulb envelope can separate leaving the base stuck in the fitting. The BC has sprung pins that can stick or seize causing bad contact, it can need both hands to insert in some fittings but now with our global marketplace the ES or the BC are available to the world.
