Hi everyone. I am not much of a handyman, but I would be grateful for your help.

There is a light fixture on my ceiling in my apartment with three light bulbs in it. One of them has failed. I have removed it and photographed it for you.

From some research I have surmised that it is a "15mm small bayonet cap" type. Is this right? Does this mean that I can replace it with any other small bayonet type bulb?

I am looking for a replacement bulb, and an online shop will do me just fine. If it's all the same, I'd like to increase the brightness by buying 3 replacements. I don't like fluorescent lights, and I'd prefer clear white.

What do I need?

Richard

That's a small bayonet cap aka SBC or B15d candle bulb

Led bulbs will give a nice spread of light, stick to Osram, Phillips or Sylvania

If you want a less yellow colour go for a daylight bulb (think a summers day), cool white will be too stark and makes the room feel cold

If you want it to match this company sell the megaman range.
Looks to me to be the same as far as I can see.

7w for an led bulb should be very bright so would advise against going more as 21w off led would be close too 2 old 100w bulbs
i am assuming a more up to date led will give perhaps 25-35% more light than what you have now with three bulbs

But the OP has CFLs and these are usually only giving out about 60% brightness after a few years.


https://www.megamanuk.com/products/cfl- ... le/941650/

are what the OP has. They are 286lm when new.

The Screwfix lamps you linked to are 470lm and other than dust they should remain at that level until they die.

But LEDs w~o linked to are still about 6W and claim to be a 40W tungsten equivalent. They are however a frosted coating.

I would normally use a 9:1 ratio from incandescent to LED but for warm white then you may need a higher ratio.

A bit expensive if the OP does not need dimmable lamps :wink:
