waiting for USB C is a waste of time...think of all of the items that you charge by USB at the moment....the likelihood of you getting an abundance of items that need charging by USB C in the near future is small.....that and then anything standard USB you'd need to get a separate cable

If this was of course tongue in cheek you have got me hook line and sinker

Good deal as far as I am concerned, that being said, Ive been getting mine from Amazon for £12.50 odd so Im locked into them really as I want them all to match....got 4 in the house so far

This looks good and quite cheap too, why cold?

Thanks but actually it is rather big compared to a single halogen floodlight perhaps that's why I'm getting the negative votes.
However if you want the light output and the long term reliability, this is the way to go. IMO, and the same or similar modes are on sale elsewhere for £49 or more
