There’s also 20W for £9.99 and 30W for £14.99. We’ve had a spate of van break-ins locally so hopefully this will help them see what they are doing

I disagree will light up a small garden well


But I don't have a well in my garden!
The IP44 isn’t great but just put a bead of clear silicone sealant around all the mating surfaces. The cable grommet at the back sticks out horizontally so fill this with sealant if you intend on tipping the light downwards

Looks decent. Click and collect an option for some also. Heated...,

I think 10w is just nice ambient light for them. 20 or 30w maybe too bright for comfort

Ordered the 20 w

Hot
These types of light are excellent and generally last for years very very cheap to run..leave on and forget great home security and visual deterrent
Can anyone recommend better ones for about the same price or slightly more, or are these as good as it gets on a budget? I need to replace 3 outdoor PIR lights.

They're all the same inside I'd buy them i fit lots of these..
ta, ordered a 10W thanks OP.
Ordered 2 x 10w for collection. Thanks
10w not very bright but good enough to light up the path down between the house etc. Not what I would call a flood light, it just adds a bit more close range light for safety.
Only IP44 weather protection is not very good! But hot for the price.

Super deal thanks so much
Are these any good. Been looking at getting the LAP ones from screwfix with a 3 year warrenty. These are a very good proce at half of the LAP. Shame black isnt available as I worry that the silver will age very quickly compared to black.

These come with a 2 year warranty. Can’t comment on if it’s worth the ink......

Quite agree. I deliberately bought the lower wattage so i don’t annoy the neighbours too much.
Hot, looks good
10w lol
ideally for outside lighting ip65 would be better ip44 is barely splash resistant compared

Yeah, the HSE may have an issue if they hurt their eyes whilst working.

I have been after a security light for a while and always came across comments that if it does not have a IP66 rating it's not worth buying for use as an outside light.

Why would they manufacture an outside light that is not suitable for outside weather? IP44 rating is supposed to be suitable for an outside light.

I have the 10w light, it’s failed just after 12 months, but the PIR was playing up previously to that. The LED’s still light up just with a slight glow, it’s not enough to light anything up. I’ve not tried to take it back yet.

Personally I wouldn’t recommend, I am going to look for a better quality item this time, maybe a Philips. 3x the price but should be far better and last longer.

I am sceptical about the quality to be honest. I'm a firm believer of buying decent stuff.
Ordered, thank you OP!
ordered 20w one. I hope this turns out to be better value

The second 4 is protection against water splashing from any angle.

5 is water jets projected by a nozzle. 6 is powerful water jet, 7 is immersion up to 1m for 30mins.

I would hope that there's no water jet projection on a light outside. 4 should be sufficient for rain, broadly speaking. Above that is what phones have in case you drop them in water. That doesn't mean 4 isn't enough for being outdoors, just that a phone wants more because it might get submerged.

Equally on the dirt side, a phone has more exposure to fine particles, including from pockets, so wants to be protected. Most of the time you don't need dust protection for an outdoor light.

How do you decide what Watt you need?
In my garage (no mains) I have an extension lead plug wire connected to the current security light. Can I do the same with this?
Any comments on quality of these ? Some lights I have bought had cheap glass and cheap fittings.
Would these be considered good for uplighters at the base of trees?

That doesn’t have a PIR. You’d have to sit up all night next to the switch.

I'd never even considered the IP codes were that easy to understand, thanks mate. I just usually look for IP65! So the first number doesn't mean anything?

EDIT- note to self always check Google.. the first letter relates to protection from solids.

Ansell make good lights.
I've replaced my IP44 light 5 times in 3 years (keep getting same light via warranty replacement). Bought some IP66 online for two other locations and they've been up two years and still working. I'd never buy another IP44.

You'll be using that warranty, regularly, based on my experience.

Every single one has failed on me, usually well under 12 months. Some only last 3 months!
