Philips Genie Energy Saving Lightbulb 8w BC - 10 pence each-

http://www.robertdyas.co.uk/P~142319~Ph ... bulb+8w+BC


Philips Genie Energy Saving Lightbulb 14w BC -10 pence each

http://www.robertdyas.co.uk/P~142317~Ph ... ulb+14w+BC

Don't think buying the 5 pack is such good value though as it is £1.79 for a 5 pack :scratch:

Standard delivery charge of £5.25 for mainland UK Isle of Man and Scottish Isles only


£5.25, seems to defeat the objective of any price reduction offered.

Lidl were offering five for 50p last weekend, various sizes.

They have stores all over the country.

I saw them last week in Chiswick, hence I knew they were 10 pence each :wink:

Just done a Store checker and the nearest is:
Leamington Spa is the Nearest Store to PR3 1ZJ

160 miles away so my bus pass would be worn out by the time I get there and back.

But Thanks for the thought.

As it come to your notice, though, that all the supermarkets are just about giving them away, and the Home Front people send me a box of four about every 3 or 4 months, but they are all BC fittings and no SES fittings.

dave :wink:

Yeah same here, they give them out free in teh shopping center accross the road. But only BC and only 60w (or 11W)

I have 100W in my rooms and I hate them, don't care what anybody says, i 100W energy saver never seems as clear as a 100W filament, perhaps its the color of the light?

i think with low energy light bulbs claming they are 5 or more time brighter than there wattage is just wrong i say 4 times and you have a good comparason so
9=36w
11=44w
13=52
15=60w
16=64w
17=68w
18=72w
20=80w
23=92w
25=100w

yeah that seems more like it. I have a 15W in and its definitely more like a 60W. No Way its a 100W

Whats the fastest start for these type bulbs? The slow start up is a problem if you just want to pop into a room for a minute

Last week Lidl had pallets of the Phillips 11watt, ES and BC at 10pence each, I bought 10.

How about the GU10 Megaman 11watt CFL lamps? Local wholesaler has them at £8.15 each, 10 off negotiable.
