Cheaper S.A.D. light than the others which cost around £100+.

What's most interesting is they reveal what bulbs they use.

I managed to dig out this bulb at a fraction of the cost of the device which you can plug into a flouresant socket.

They seem to have other 'daylight' bulbs as well which are bayonet cap, etc..For around £7- 10

This is indeed cheap

The go to deal link doesn't work

I had one of these from maplins, the inbuilt transformer suffered from serious mains humm, better off just getting the bulbs.

The bulbs look like a good deal but what kind of fitting would you put them in?

Bargin....... err what is it?

flouresant 4pin. Or the other links, which use normal bayonet that you have in ceiling lights. Think there screw as well.

Wouldn't touch this with a bargepole. No mention of the light output; without knowing the power its just a big expensive lamp!

The light details are here.

Lamp details:
2 Light tubes: PL-L 36W (Philips); light colour 84 (approx. 8.000 hours of
operation) Alternative: Dulux L 36W 84 (Osram) 72 Watt 220/ 240 Volt

Note these are Philips PL-L 36W. Rated as 'DAYLIGHT' bulbs. In other words it will show roughly the same spectrum of light as daylight shows.

From my other links above, you can find similar bulbs with 'DAYLIGHT' rating.

Don't get this confused with brightness. The key is that it simulates daylight, something we don't get much in the northen hemisphere. And SAD is a genuine disorder.

Basically, if you notice that you're more miserable during winter times. Then this might be for you. If you wish you can just go for the bulbs. I have provided links above.

If you want some reading material on the subject and an idea of cheaper options - the last comment has a few links

You can normally get these VAT free if you have a medical reason for having one - you don't need a doctors note or anything. You might be able to reclaim the VAT, maybe have a look into the rules as I know I got mine VAT free (a Phillips one).

Getting just the bulbs sounded like a great idea until I looked on the net for a lamp that would take 2 of these bulbs and couldn't find any and the ones that just take one of them cost considerably more than £39.99.
