Looking for low-lumen (50-60lm) light bulbs

Found 16th FebEdited by:"rtbsghgfh"
Hi, I'm looking for around a 50 or 60 lumen e27 bulb - ideally for under £5. Can't seem to find any on screwfix/b&q/wilko's.. any ideas on a good place to look?

The closest I could find was this on eBay, and call me picky but I'd rather have an LED a more efficient version if available. Also looking for round or candle bulbs, not spotlights.

Thanks!

These are the lowest lumen bulbs i've had, maybe too low for you and a pretty niche design! ikea.com/gb/…39/
I got some the other day at B&Q 2 for £7 (1 was £5)

Wow, they are funky thanks for the link - just unnecessarily fancy for my purposes (hidden behind a shade)

Thanks, I could only see a single bulb on their website under 100lumens. 45lm but it was £10 (included a remote mind, but not what I need).
Sorry just read the ebay link you posted- that looks like a 3W LED filament to me? Am i wrong? Looks to fit the bill perfectly!

You could be right.. I just saw 3w and as my existing 100lm bulb is only 1w I assumed it was old school. Maybe that's my only option!

sorry mines where 250lm LED 3W power consumption, which is equivalent to a 25W bulb and give off a warm white light.
Colour temperature 2700K

15 lumens/watt is still extremely inefficient by LED standards though.

There's a 30 lumen bulb here:
ebay.co.uk/itm…097
and here:
ebay.co.uk/itm…157
You need ...

Clive modified some to lower their power - for the basic capacitor dropper LED, you could also do it by making up an inline adapter that put a mains rated (class X) capacitor in series, rather than a lower value capacitor in the bulb itself

A 1W E14 in an E27 adapter might do, but they are staill going toward 100lm
Whats it for?
60lumens would be damn near pointless its about 6 candles so once you add a lamp shade it's going to be a large fixture for a very dull glow.
You'd probably be better just getting a new led setup or getting some dimmable led bulbs and turning them to barely on. At least that way you can make them useful.
