Surely better off with an led?


Yep. They're not expensive.
Can't find a proper one but solar powered as I don't have a clue about electricity to fit it myself and I think an electrician would charge 20£-30 for installing it + things that I need..another fuse, cables etc
Bearing in mind the LED ones are pretty much the same price when on offer at Lidl/Screwfix, you would be silly to get Halogen!
I would now purchase LED over normal bulbs, even if the price was more
Just buy a replacement led bulb off ebay for a couple of quid and fit it to this light

LED floodlights tend to have non-replaceable bulbs (as the bulbs have such a long lifetime). The bulbs don’t fit into a halogen flood light. I agree with the other posters, it makes far more sense to buy a LED light - uses far less electricity and lasts far longer.
Don’t put a light up.

Didn't think of that. Are they any good, since that would save me a job. Also for bloke asking about solar powered ones-just get a battery powered one. I've got one at the front of my house to save me a difficult wiring job. Needs new batteries once a year and is bloody bright.
Anyone recommend a solar powered LED light please. Kindly attach links

Mine looks like that one but with two leds. It's either a Mr beams or a good copy. Great bit of kit, as a side I've had people think it's a camera which is probably not a bad thing.
Get your batteries on eBay or some like so you don't pay supermarket prices(batteries are marked up) and will take years before it's cheaper to pay for a sparkie.

the ones i bought off ebay were a couple of years ago and i didnt pay much for them, they are bright enough for the dogs to see where they are going to tinkle, they are a light enough light to sit out at night with a few beers without being too harsh, and not too bright that the houses on the back complain that they are too bright if they accidentally get left on. ive seen some in b&q that i might try

i just fitted a length of cable an in line switch and a standard 3 pin plug ( probably 3-4 quid total in wilko ) on mine and just plugged it in in the house, it gets used every night for the last 6 years with no problems. i have one without the pir hence the inline switch but just do without the switch if you have the pir.

Ugh..that's a fantastic idea!!!
Something like this?

Never thought in this way. Thick! !!
cold for halogen
Even if you don't mind the fact that this is terribly energy-inefficient, the EU is planning on banning halogen bulbs in a couple of years so you probably won't be able to find replacements if we're still following EU rules by then.
