Do you need further equipment to use this? I recently bought a Xiaomi Yeelight bulb as it's considerably cheaper, and there's a smartphone app to control it.

Yes you also need the hub amazon.co.uk/gp/…P44
It's not cheap on its own I'm afraid.

Although sometimes there are deals to be had. I got this kit from Currys for £75 a while ago.

yes, but only like an ordinary bulb.

For the WiFi and colour change ability you need the 'Bridge' hardware, about £20-30 2nd hand off eBay.

Great price, thanks OP. Now just need to decide if I actually need any more...

Brilliant. Thanks. I needed 2 more so this ideal timing.

bayonet is £29.99 but the screw is still £49.99

Those Chinese converters are a fire waiting to happen, I'd be damned if I'd take the risk. Read some reviews, they overheat. Plus with the bulb having to be on at all times it's too much of a gamble. The better option would be to hold out, there's bound to be a sale on E27 bulbs this week.

Great price. I'm now in danger of having more bulbs than light fittings...

Great price, ordered 2 of these last night from amazon for 50 quid. Having to refuse delivery today and reorder instead of them refunding the difference - but annoying but thats for the spot op!

Thanks OP, great price ordered one to replace my plain white version.

Ordered! Thanks. Just a shame I only recently ordered one at full price!

​I believe that the idle power draw from those bridgeless types can be quite a bit higher, so you may not be saving as much as you think with the led bulb.

Aren't the E27 bulbs the newer ones with the more accurate greens etc. I almost snapped this up this morning but thought the B22 were the older versions? One of the reviews has a comparison with E27 vs "older" bulb and shows the greens are a massive improvement on E27.

Anyone know if these B22 are newer versions? Or are they simply the bayonet versions of E27?

Ikea sell 2 converters for £1

I think the Richer Colours are the newer ones.

these are listed as richer colour so would be the new ones

OK thanks. SOLD! Another item I don't need but will buy anyway.

Thanks bengutt and Sparkymb

Love these. Whole house had these, whites and personal hue, good fun using Alexa or your phone. Just wished I could get colour changing to work with Alexa, still can't figure that out although with scenes it's supposedly possible.

Kay, they're definitely the newer richer colour. I bought one two weeks ago.

Cheers OP, recently bought an Echo Dot and was looking at some of these. Bought two. Now to find the hub cheap. Black Friday might turn up a good deal?

I have a spare hub I can list for you if you'd like?

OK PM me what you are looking for it

Ok, but its the bayonet version. Would like to see the same price for the E27 version!!

How are the new richer colours bulbs? I have the old ones and wonder how much of an improvement these are.

are they much different to the generation 2 lamps? I already have 3 in the living room but have ordered one of these for an extra table lamp I just hope the colours aren't too different.

Great deal. In the US the RRP was cut from $60 to $50 but with the £ down so much I fully expect the £50 UK price to stay and at best drop to £45 so this is a no brainer. The bulbs sell pretty well on eBay so I can replace all 5 of mine and make most of the money back selling my old ones.

hoping this all goes to black friday somewhere, would like to get the starter set at under £100

You can get these converters from Ikea.

Do the dimmer switches ever go on offer? They always seem to be £19.99. I have enough bulbs now, but need a couple more switches and maybe the strip lighting... Hmm.. Addictive!

I think you have to use IFTTT to get the colours to change from Alexa.

that's the wrong way round for the bulbs on this deal, also just be careful how far you screw the bulbs into the adaptor, I've blown 2 Hue bulbs with these, also using adaptors is not great as they also add another 1 to 2 inches of length onto the bulb so they're more than likely going to stick out of the light fitting/shade etc.

Don't these require the other way around though? Bayonet in converted to E27?

not sure but better value to buy the dimmer with a white lamp kit for £30 when in stock (if you know your going to use the lamp)

As others have pointed out these connectors do not convert a B22 bulb to E27 fitting.
