get these cheap now, they will go up now because of the cut backs that are due.

Wow is that a flood light! normally these are 11w, 50w CFL must be equivalent to about 500w Halogen!

Not very eco though if there 50w.

Defo worth it at the moment, my local Tesco has raised their prices on light bulbs due to the goverment ending subsidising the low energy bulbs...

I've never seen a 50W low energy bayonet cap bulb being sold in a retail shop, and I'm not sure they even exist - there were certainly none of these in my local Lidl yesterday.

I'm guessing these are just the usual 11W bulbs - often sold as 50W equivalent.

Why oh why won't they make an energy saving bulb that is actually brighter than the old incandescent ones? You would only have to go to 30 watts or so, still a big energy saving, and people would buy them without any subsidy, for the light output. Light is what these things are all about, right?

I bought a bunch of the 23 watt (120 watt incandescent equivalent) at Tesco when they were 10 pence, but you used to be able to get 150 watt incandescents.

These energy saving bulbs of less than 100w equivalent always remind me of Moscow's Sheramatova Airport of a few years ago - semi darkness no one to help with recovering luggage and lots of cats!

You can get 30W energy savers (around 150W in old money) online, but rarely, if at all, in retail shops. They tend to be around the £8 mark, though.

Sainsburys have 3 bulbs for 30p at the moment

These bulbs are still available for sale?
