Commercially you have to round up the wattage to be within the parameters of variance I believe.

Thanks for the advice. Will have to look into it. We are putting in dimmers in our extensions.
Reserved 2, then saw the colour of the light is 'Warm' and that put me off. Been looking for cheap white ones...

These are just standard led bulbs. Better to stick to big brands who will invest in new technology & support for their products. Some of the smart lighting in TCP range is quite dire imo. No point buying if the support is

You mean the connected range? Wasn't that launched in like 2014 (from google was stopped early 2017), of course its going to die off at some point as tech gets newer.

Dunno if that helps you but the new bulbs they do are awesome without issue and do not require a convoluted hub to allow them to work with alexa/google.

I purchased 12 LED dimmable, from LED hut. Phoned up 5 months later to order the same and told them 3 had failed.

They sent me 3 replacements free of charge. Awesome service.

Aldi had decent ones dimmable warm white. However they don't dim as good as the standard halogen bulbs. Not sure if it's Aldi thing or generally led lights.
Not sure if Aldi still selling them

Many thanks for that and taking the time to reply.
I remember when these used to be £15 EACH.
Anyone know a link to advice on buying these LED bulbs. I'm guessing that dimmable ones will be better quality, but perhaps not. I got some coloured ones from CPC and they stopped working pretty quick. The LEDhut ones I bought actually burnt out (scorch marks, the lot and usually trip the RCD).

This seems a good price at 50p/bulb but they sure as heck don't seem to last as long as they claim.

Dimmable has no bearing on quality and there are no real "safety" standards that are heavily enforced on lightbulbs which is why you get the issues you have, in a lot of instances pay a small price and get a lack of quality.


Back on subject with dimmable go for the higher lumens so you have the widest range to dim with and always take note of the colour light you want (2700,4000,6500 - warm/cooler/cold light)
Why is it it seems it is only the warm white which are either 1) readily available in bricks and mortar stores and 2) on offer?

our entire house is specced out with cool white, personally i find it just a nicer tone, and if you slip in a warm one it reminds me of standing under a sodium street lamp.

great price tho.

Hi I'm a electrician. I remember the price of LED bulbs when they came out..lol I think everyone was holding back until the price is dropped but in all fair honesty the prices of these bulbs have been cheap for the last few years.

I will avoid the cheap unbranded ones. It's not worth the hassle.

I buy my bulbs from Screwfix they come with a 3 year warranty if you have a Bulb in that time that stops working go and take it back and they will happily swap it for a new one no questions asked.read the reviews.

Also dimmer switches with LED bulbs can be a bit of a headache as some dimmer switches will cause certain bulbs to flicker. So you might have to change the dimmer switch or the dimmer switch module. Personally I would just buy a £10 lap plastic dimmer switch from Screwfix and take the module out of that and put it in your existing switch.

These are the ones that I use. There from Screwfix.

What BG range did you get was it the Nexus?... There is still a chance that the dimmer switch will not work correctly with these lamps.... Hopefully they will....

Remember trying a poundshop non dimmable bulb on a dimmer a few years ago, dimmed for a few seconds then phut.
May I add something more from a lot of experience of using GU10 LEDs.

What is rarely discussed is beam angle. The Screwfix bulbs listed above all have a beam angle of only 36 °. Not much use in a kitchen but useful in a trophy cabinet.


37301351-zI4oV.jpg

In my kitchen I have 120 ° angle LEDs. The coverage is far better.

The best one I have found has been from Mini Sun. I bought mine from a local lighting specialist but we all know we can shop around online.

mini-sun.co.uk/min…tml

I really recommend these bulbs. Frosted ones are also available but I haven't tried them nor have I tried the dimmable ones. I have a 6 bulb lighting track in the kitchen and the MiniSun replaced one of the bulbs from LED hut that kept failing - it never failed again and is 3 years old.

My daughter's bedroom has 3 dimmable LEDs that work with a traditional dimmer switch - they were bought from IKEA. I have an IKEA local to me and their choice of LEDs is unbeatable. They are super value. They sell GLS globes for 90p!!!
