Q & As

Philips 42W SES Halogen Classic Candle Bulb, Clear 3.7 5 13 13
Necessary product After 3 and a half years, the bulb above my ceramic hob gave out so this is a replacement. Let's see how long it lasts ...the rating might be higher if so.. 20 August 2014
We have light! It's a bulb. It emits light. Easy screw fit. What else can I say? 20 August 2014
Practical and atmospheric This bulb provides practical and bright light when on the full setting. Its lower settings provide a warm and homely glow. 09 July 2014
Feedback We bought 5 of these and within a few days one of them is already not working 28 January 2014
Good product (especially for 'touch' lights) at reasonable price. Purchased for use in John Lewis New Tom table touch lamp. Recommended to work efficiently with this lamp. Works perfectly and consumes less electricity than a standard tungsten bulb of around 60 watts, whilst giving almost the same light output for only 42 watts. Also comes on and reaches full brightness immediately, unlike most energy saving lights. Ideal for this sort of light. 07 January 2014
Great bulbs for dimmers These are quite eco friendly and give you more light for your buck than tungsten. 07 January 2013
Right for my light. I bought this because it was recommended for the bedside light I bought. It is dimmable and I hope it will last a good while before it neeeds replacing. 16 August 2012
bright very bright and just what i needed, dimmable to, just wish they were more energy saving 30 May 2012
