Can't see a problem, as long as you have gu10 fitting. These are quite a narrow beam spread.
I have these in our bathroom, our bathroom light fitting had seals to prevent water/steam from accessing the fitting.
Thanks guys - Heat added and ordered 🏼
Fantastic looked at some in Homebase yesterday £20 obviously didn’t purchase! Ordered Thanx Op
Worth noting that these are often bogof!

I would not think these are suitable for a bathroom. A bathroom light is supposed to be enclosed & not open to steam. These bulbs are normally fitted to open light fittings.
Think this is standard price but great value. Bought them about a month ago when they were BOGOF so 20 for £5

The bulbs will be perfectly suitable if the fitting takes GU10. The type of fitting is another matter; that in a bathroom does not have to be fully enclosed unless it is in a zone that is subject to splashing or spray (such as above a bath or shower). That said, an enclosed bathroom-rated fitting is always preferable.

And of course these don't get hot like traditional GU10s so , as you say, as long as you don't place them in a wet zone they are fine. I've had a set in place for 2 years in our en suite - no problem
If they are positioned over a bath or shower, they need to be rated at IP65.

In that position (Zone 1), a minimum rating of IP45 is required for the light fitting - but IP65 is recommended and most 'shower lights' conform to that. (In case anyone is confused or worried, the bulbs themselves are not rated; whatever fits can be used.)
for those that don't have a local store or are on lock down. £10 delivered, a £3 saving compared to buying direct

Thats not true. It would depend on the ceiling height, but if the heaight of the ceiking is greater than 2.25m it is outside of the zone, and therefore doesn't need this rating at all.
However, good practice would be to buy fittings that were at least splash proof.
Great price.
But be aware these are not nearly equivalent to a 50W G10 halogen, I would expect 450 lumens or at a sideways glance possibly 400 (give or take a few lumens) from a 50W halogen, These are just about equivalent to a 35W halogen (if that).
CRI is good though so your mileage may vary..
They will however seem bright enough over a slightly narrower area as they are a 36 deg beam angle, I wouldn't use them in a kitchen unless you had lots of fittings a bit closer together for the area to be lit.
