    Where can I get cheap energy saving small edison (screw on)/bayonet bulbs?

    They seem to carry a premium compared to full size Edison/Bayonet...

    Tesco,s had these at £1-39 bogof.........and then later at 1p each........worth a look......but dont hold your breath...........
    I bought 50 at £1-39 buy one get one free .....small edison screw.in various styles/watts..............and then they cleared all/most
    low energy bulbs at 1p each..........but as i do not live in the uk i have to buy when i am there.............and missed this deal

    There are different sizes of Edison screw fittings (by that I mean the size of the screw itself), what size do you need?

    Are ]these any good or are they too expensive?

    most supermarkets for bayonet, IKEA for screw fitting

    There four main types of bulb connections:

    [LIST]
    [*]Normal Large Bayonet
    [*]Normal Large Screw On/Edison
    [*]Small Bayonet
    [*]Small Screw On/Edison[/LIST]
    Screwfix is a bit pricey, I'll keep an eye out for the Tesco deals.

    It's a shame they are so pricey individually, I;d be willing to pay £20 for a decent quantity.

    Yeah but I've managed to blow a few of the Ikea ones in a chandelier (no, not on a dimmer before you assume that) so looking for replacements for it and other lights.
