Don’t confuse this with ambiance

How long do these last?


At a tenner each, I’d want to be able to leave them in my will. Jeez...
I got some of these from a man selling then out the back of his yellow Reliant Regal van in peckham for £2 each

Genuine question, what's the difference?


You can change the coolness/warmth of the white with ambience bulbs (which are double the price), these are fixed warmth but dimmable.

A twin pack is £27.49 so would be £109.96 for 8. That’s a decent saving so heat from me if you need that many

That’s what I did in my first calculation still a good saving though.

sorry to tell you that's "regular" price for "white" bulbs. That would be a great price for white ambiance but not for pure white...
I have already order white for arount £7. So not £10 is not a great deal...
Any offers on colour GU10’s?

As others have mentioned, I would love a link for £7 hue GU10 bulbs. I haven’t found new bulbs that cheap anywhere.

Warm white is 3000 kelvins and cool white is 5000k. This is 2700k. So you can guess. If you want choice of both then go for ambiance which can be changed from Soft White (2700K – 3000K), Bright White/Cool White (3500K – 4100K), and Daylight (5000K – 6500K)
Regarding the white vs ambiance options, we have some of these in the other bulb types. For our family it’s rare we crank up the cooler white side of the spectrum, finding it a bit too harsh and clinical looking. But potentially a good option for some depending on the room.
I know not quite the same but ikeas lamps £7 and works well with the hue hub

Smoking hot. Recently bought 4 of these used at £10 each. Would have been all over this.

The only thing that puts me off the ikea option is I read the dimensions of the bulb are slightly larger than standard - anyone know if that’s the case?
Thanks OP
This is a very good price. I have loads of these and are brilliant for time control etc. The Problem with the Ikea bulbs are heh just aren’t as plug and play as hue. Ikea have recently discontinued their tradfi bulbs and are bringing new ones out. I’ve tried some Ikea one and took them back because they just didn’t work properly and the price difference wasn’t enough to justify them not working.

I too can’t wait to find out where these are for sale at £7 a pop. In the meantime, £10 each is a good price.
Do these need hue bridge to work?
Ahhh damn, I just stuck four of these in the decking and several in the soffits of the garage, shame this wasn’t around as I paid £27.50 for each twin pack!

Technically no, up to 8 can be controlled with a dimmer switch
Wow they are still grossly expensive

They fit just fine in a standard GU10 holder and work well with the Hue bridge/app etc.
Bargain! They are a nice warm hue but be aware these do not dim as much as the ambience ones

Had no problem with size unlike the Philips colour ones
Tenner a bulb is good for Phillips but if you're after value I'd grab the Chinese ones

We currently have 18 bulbs and 3 strips, the oldest bulb is about 2 years old. Not had a single failure. We had energy saving bulbs before these which drove me up the wall, I was usually finished in the room before it was actually bright enough to be useful.

The cool + warm IKEA Tradfri bulbs are about 1cm longer than standard GU10s, they have a thick lens. The warm white only Tradfri bulbsare standard size.

Just depends if you want to put them in an enclosed fitting or not (which voids the warranty on Hue bulbs also).

I'd want them to last at least 10 years at a tenner each. I guess you get what you pay for though lol

Care to share where you got hue white gu10’s for £7?


Well, I didn't take GU10 white cause I wasn't interested by those. I have order white E27 instead:

37390847-i2MSM.jpg
As you can see, E27 white cost me 40,38€ for 6 -> less than £7. GU10 white was at the same price but I haven't order them.

Here is the link of my previous order on amazon.co.uk with White Ambience

37390847-dmpJB.jpg6 for 73,26 which is £12,21 but for white ambience...



Off course those price are not available the whole year but I have noticed that amazon.co.uk does quite often proceed to a 3for2 promotion for hue...
So my point here is that we have to order at least 8 bulbs to get a mere £10/bulb. It would be £10 with individual bulb why not but the amount of bulb to get that price is to important.

Very strange, I use the tradfri bulbs with the tradfri hub, I've also got some of the wireless switches and they ALL work perfectly. No issues pairing anything to the little remote and nothing has taken more than a few seconds to actually pair.
