Any recommendations on a very powerful led bulb for e27. Please? I need it for one room where I only have one bulb available. Thank you

    Can't find a link at present but I have a 40w LED E27 bulb. It's BIG and VERY bright. Bought a couple of years back in a shop in Wimbledon. It was around £20 then. It is excellent. It's not a cob light, it's like a normal LED bulb just MUCH bigger.

    PS. Not LIKE a 40w bulb this IS a 40w LED bulb.

    Highly-rated 1600 lumen (say 150W incan equiv), E27, remote control, multicolour, dimming, your choice of songs, £25 fulfilled Amazon

    Excellent value considering £24,990 per kg.

    1600 lumen is more like a 100W equivalent.

    Considered replacing the light fitting? Could put a 6 way gu10 in if it needs to be really bright.

    You may misunderstand the application. The design of the subject item means all of its lumens are beneficially heading towards the floor so appears brighter, whereas many of the incandescent's 150Watt lumens will be heading to the ceiling and wasted.
    This is a commonly overlooked concept resulting in less wasted power and first touted by Nigel Tufnel.

    It has enough lumens to satisfy Nigel, but Nigel would probably prefer same lumens and colour temperature but around a third of the cost:
    amazon.co.uk/dul…B3/
    Might even find cheaper with a tailored search.

    You haven't indicated your preferred colour temperature, hence the earlier posted suggestion of multi-colour (+ remote) to cover all colour temperature preferences.

    If this is for the bathroom then is it an enclosed fitting? LEDs dislike getting hot so the most powerful possible bulbs are going to be expected to be well ventilated. Don't expect a particularly long lifetime if it's in a sealed fitting.

    Yes, the one in the bathroom it is enclosed but I don't think it would be a massive issue... Which one would you recommend please?

    Light shining on a ceiling through say a glass fitting gets scattered off the celling and walls creating softer shadows than a single directional light, which some would find desirable.

    Highest efficiency bulb (lumens per watt) I'm aware of is the Philips CorePro range. 150 lumens per watt. I have the 17.5W one in my bedroom and it's my favourite light in the house (tied with the LED batten in my kitchen).

    Here is the 23W one which produces 3452 lumens. It says Cool White but at 4000K it's more like Natural White:

    Lumens is a measure of brightness. Watts is a measure of power.
    Lumens per watt means how much brightness you are getting for the electricity you pay for.
    Colour temperature is measured in Kelvins (K): warm light (around 2700K), cool light (around 5000K) and daylight (around 6500K)
    Yeah I'd personally recommend the one in the link. It's the same one I have but brighter.

    sivthasan - stated it well, worth noting that cool light (~5000K) and daylight (~6500K) are best for reading and warm light (~2700K) is best for living/relaxing light. Obviously personal choice also plays a factor (I got colour changing ones for £5 from B&Q and the switch from warm to cold makes a huge difference when the kids want to do their homework - I also turn on the 28W ones to make sure they have no eye strain or excuses!)

    Yeah the Philips Hue bulbs aren't bright. If I'm not mistaken, they are used more often for mood lighting. I can vouch for the non-'smart' CorePro bulbs though. Out of curiosity, how big is the room in which you are using the bulb?

    Yes that is some pretty awkward placement. Even the 17.5W version is plenty for that size (depending on the room height). However in this situation you might be better off with adjustable spotlights.
