Q & As

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great little bulb Bought this for a John Lewis table lamp. This is the modern energy saving version of the 'old familiar' candle bulb. Gives off a good light. 24 March 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 Faulty? Bought 6 of these - one failed within 2 weeks / about 6 hours use. Am accustomed to bulbs being better engineered. Jury out on the other 5. 17 February 2015

Rated 4 out of 5 by It's a bulb ! It lights up, when you switch it on. It is also easy to fit. 11 November 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Useful bulb I haven't really had much use out of this bulb yet, hence the average rating. I haven doubt though, that it will be long lasting given it's price. It looks neat in the lamp I bought it for and gives a nice glow in the shade. Just the job for a small bedroom. 20 September 2014

Rated 3 out of 5 by Suits but Poor Light Shape etc works with lampshade but not bright enough to read by. 27 August 2014
