This is more for those who get up before dawn, I'm up at around 5.30 - 6 at which point its dark and the birds are soundly sleeping.

You must live nearer the equator than me, or sleep really late. Round here in December/January the sun doesn't rise until after 8 o'clock.

This is a really good price but I bought one of these from Boots last year. I returned it for refund on the advice of Phillips customer helpline as they informed me that the bulbs that go in them are no longer available (EU rules of withdrawal100w bulbs).

So in effect if you buy this once the bulb goes you are left with an unusable product!

I purchased a NAF NAF LYS from Amazon instead (which takes lower wattage bulbs) and i would reccomend this product if you are looking for one of these devices. Definately a better quality product than the Phillips as well

Now it's dropped in price I reckon it's a bargain. But be aware that the lamp it uses has been banned by the nanny state in a futile gesture of environmental "seen to be doing something" and the recommended replacement bulb will be banned, IIRC, next year. That said apparently Philips will replace the whole thing for two years even if just a bulb blows. I think the new model uses a fluorescent lamp.

I wouldn't buy one though because it doesn't have a sunset feature unlike the Lumie ones. I find that a very useful help in getting off to sleep.

I own something a little different but with the same function. Mine actually uses regular lamps which plug into it, meaning it can operate more than one on an extension so creating proper room filling light. Very effective with the right type of bulb.

I find they work very well, at least bringing you round enough so that a proper wake up alarm doesn't have the same nightmarish head-sting. However it depends on your sleep routine. If it's a healthy, consistent routine, it'll work. If you're a nocturnal all over the place sleeper or working different shifts it won't be very effective. It is nice when working shifts if you end up sleeping past 3pm after a night shift during the winter months not to have to wake up to pitch blackness.

Oh dear... So the bulb isn't avaliable anymore? I'm going to end up with a useless lamp!

Nevermind!

Question
What light bulb do I need to buy for my Wake-up Light now that sale of 75W and 100W incandescent light bulbs is going to be discontinued?

Answer
For type HF3451 you need a Philips EcoClassic 53W light bulb.
For type HF3461 / HF3462 / HF3463, you need a Philips EcoClassic 70W light bulb.

The EcoClassic 70W will be banned from 1st Sep 2011 as it is a halogen lamp above 60W. They must have massive overstock of these wake up lights, I bet they will go below £30 shortly.

Okay, now i'm a little confused.
I just got this from the Philips website:

"For HF3461 and HF3463 you need a Philips 100W E27 SOFTONE softwhite 230V T55 lamp."

p4c.philips.com/cgi…ENG

Are these banned, or just another name for the same bulb? Heh.

I really dislike the micro management of products down to what light bulbs are permitted.

avoid buying halogen / tungsten light bulbs from the big supermarkets, instead buy them online because the supermarkets are in cahoots with the carbon "trust". the scope for carbon credits is huge. every part of modern life could have a carbon tax. it would open the way for a tax on breathing !

the other day I saw QD pound shop selling 100w bayonet light bulbs

AIUI the 100w ones are now banned and any typical domestic lamp over 60w, (excluding some loopholes maybe) will be banned from Sep 1st 2010. Any lamp over 40w will banned as of Sep 1st 2011

I think this lightbulbs-direct.com/inf…nt/ is correct. It's a typical confusing bureaucratic governmental cock-up in my opinion.

A local electrical shop round here was advertising 100w incandescent lamps for sale the other day so I don't think the "ban" is actually being enforced. According to this telegraph.co.uk/com…tml there isn't actually any legal basis for a ban anyway.
