Q & As

Philips 28W BC Halogen Classic Candle Bulb, Clear 3 5 2 2
Nice quality light We use these bulbs quite a lot. They give out a pleasant quality light, use a little less electricity than ordinary incandescent bulbs and last longer than incandescent bulbs too. We have yet to find a good LED candle bulb, so these keep us going until one comes along. 22 April 2014
Not very long-lived. A year ago I purchased 4 of these bulbs, 2 for the sitting room wall lights and 2 for the dining room. Within 2 months, one of the latter had failed and last month the other also failed. Although the sitting room lights, which are used every day, are still going strong,both of those in the seldom used dining room have failed. 10 December 2011
