Never heard of bulbs making a noise - might be worth checking your transformers are compatible.

showing stock but cant order any
Bought loads of these when they were at £7. Great deal and a quality product.
Is this very bright?
Can't seem to click and collect even though showing as stock?

Decent 50W Halogen bulbs are 500 lumens plus so you probably wont be happy with these if switching.
Heat added

No dimmers bulbs seem to get hot and there seems to be a buzzing noise occasionally tried different bulb no noise may have just got a bad batch

Not the brightest
I have some of these, they are awful. Warm white is candle light colour.
Also got these last time on offer, they're pretty good, especially for the money. No noise from mine either.

Would definitely buy again but think I've got plenty spare still.

Gu10s don't use transformer's


Indeed they don't, but those LEDs are not getting 240 Volts straight to them, as a Tungsten bulb would. Needs a bit of electronics wizardry in there.
Just purchased,the £7 ones are glass £5 are plastic hope this helps
Wont exactly be like Blackpool illuminations at 5w

Can anyone reccomend me some decent warm white dimmable gu10s that don’t have that annoying high frequency flicker which makes you feel like everything is shaking when you move about
Guys I can't order then even though showing stock

Yep, mine are silent but we don't have transformers.
Worth checking

same. Bought 2 packs before. No noise.

The colour is yellowish.
When I click on this it says buy one get one free. So is it £5 for two packs?
36deg angle, ok for some applications, I had to change them out of my kitchen for 120deg.
No stock near me try Dumfries or Perth.
I changed my halogens to leds and they flicker when first turned on for 2-3 mins. Tried different leds same issue

Do I need the down lights changing by electrician ?

They usually have a cleverly designed circuit like this: (larger capacitors like that can squeal which might be it)

Got these last time, brilliant for hallways, bathrooms and lamps, bought adapters off ebay to fit normal fittings

Do you happen to have dimmer switches? As these are not compatible with dimmer switches. You need dimmable bulbs for them.

If you have normal switches. Flickering could be loose connection.

Very unlikely you need to change all the lights.

Yours sincerely.

No dimmer just normal switch.

I think I have a minimum load issue as detailed here ? The kitchen has 6 down lights if I put one halogen 20w in and the other as 5 led 3w it solves the issue ..


lamphq.com/fli…ts/

One electrician said he would need to replace all 6 down lights at £30 each but sounds like I need a different transformer is that right ? If so what would you charge for something like that?

Thanks for your helping appreciate it
