For a couple of quid more you can get LED, same brightness, same colour but much less wattage.

SAD you say. How much 480nm light does this produce?

that is £2 more and less wattage

That's what I said. Less wattage but more lumens so brighter. Will pay for itself eventually.

...and less wattage



You know light is not measured in wattage???

or: just go out for a healthy 4 hour walk in the daylight - yes, even in the winter gloom & rain - that's what I do, always cheers me up

​unless you have access to the ultraviolet light you could be outside for hours with negligible benefit, in the summer where the sun is higher up in the sky and there is more possibility of sunlight to the skin and retina then you would said to be benefiting from sunlight.

no offence but sounds like it's posted by an armchair merchant who avoids healthy exercise in the great outdoors

I can get Vit D from pills or food but the 4 hour exercise is good for the body & mind and just being outside & away from the house is great in itself

20w 6500K from CPC £2.13 equally as bright
I had these before changing to led
20W 6500K £2.13

Do the light bulbs this post is about give out something that is good for SAD? Or is it just a bright lightbulb? Thanks

OK I assume you mean the depression/ SAD affects you every day so what about the days you can't get out? I sympathise but you have to get real.

It is impossible to combine outdoor/ coping strategies with aspects such as weather, job, family etc. So you have to be mentally strong instead or find solace in other things.

One thing I will be doing once my youngest goes to university is retiring abroad here in Europe to a better country weather-wise & in other ways & spending the worst winter months in places like Thailand/ Aus/ NZ. Each person affected can make plans.

I wouldn't put 5p of faith in lightbulbs, though. Much better to be active outdoors & take exercise & make your brain work with stimulating activities such as learning a language or reading a book or studying a new skill.

It simulates natural daylight read the post for the full info , it is not just a bright lamp, I have used this myself and it does help especially when it is dull out which is always in England

one thing that helps me is thinking ahead positively so I plan all our holidays a year ahead & book the flights etc at their cheapest, you can always think: only xyz days until we go to 'Honolulu' [it's not Honolulu lol] and then when we get back it's only 6 more weeks until we go back to Honolulu

I would kill to spend a day in an armchair so best not to assume as we all know what that does, I work outdoors!! These lamps have helped with my depression and as you seem to recommend reading as a cure , read this nhs.uk/Con…spx

​Nope, it isn't full spectrum. It hasn't got as high a CRI as the CFL in this deal, so isn't comparable. The point of SAD bulbs is that they have as high a CRI as possible on a D65 (6500K) illuminant. Just selling a bright D65 bulb for SAD treatment doesn't qualify.

I love the idea that everything in life can be planned away including mental illness, I'm lucky in that I have the education, money and most importantly LUCK to be able to head off to Southern California to live, I don't suffer from any of the effects of depression, but know people who do, and believe it or not, it's real, some of the effects can be helped by using such things as these lamps, and some can't, but the idea that it's simply a case of planning ahead and jetting off to a foreign country once or twice a year, is not only wrong, but frankly insulting to those who do suffer, just buying a bright LED light bulb or going for a walk is not going to be the quick fix, yes walking will help, but then so will using a proper SAD lamp, but sadly having someone tell you the equivalent of "pull yourself together" is not helpful in the slightest.

Your ass-u-m-(e)-ing shows you have decided that everyone has the same opportunities as you do! Most people have either 50 or at least 24 weeks to their "next" holiday - that's if they have one at all! Many work all the daylight hours on 5/6 days of the week; many offices and factories have NO real daylight. Most can only dream of ever being able to move to a sunnier clime. Get real yourself, look around you more and consider the feelings (and state of mind) of others - and if they are taking positive steps to help themselves - if only a light-bulb - they are to be applauded and encouraged. Realise how fortunate you are in however you gathered your wealth to allow you these choices. To the Op, thanks for posting a good deal - this site is about helping people to make the most of their hard-earned cash, not least when spending it on matters relating to their health.

you are correct however the light throw is worse in that bulb (talking from experience) between the 2 the posts bulb gives a better light for a big room as the light has a better spread lighting more of the room. In smaller rooms the LED bulb is very good but still acts more like a spot light.

For someone who supposedly has a son with autism, I'm frankly shocked by your lack of acceptance that other people might have problems that can't be solved by going on holiday or for a run, especially considering the connection between mental health issues and autism, some even go as far as to think there's a higher chance of SAD for those with autism. Certainly the person I know who benefits most from using one of these special lamps, is also on the spectrum.

nonsense

autism is not a condition that can be changed though some outcomes can be improved especially by intensive 1-to-1 coaching with younger kids

whereas SAD is basically defeatism, an acceptance of a bad situation - whereas that situation CAN be changed - get out in the daylight, get your exercise, get your vit D, get positive in your mind

it's like saying obesity & diabetes type 2 are awful, isn't it all awful? - somebody else must be to blame - when the answer is simple enough: eat & drink less in quantity & more healthily, get more exercise - both conditions are clearly 100% the fault of the person concerned, whether by ignorance or stupidity

Any suggestions for a bulb of less than 23 Watts?
