In our kitchen we have a ceiling light fitting that takes four GU10 50W lamps. 200 watts in all.
I have just replaced all of them with the LED equivalent. 5W is supposed to equal 50W. The light they give is brighter than the standard 50W. I’m well pleased.
More expensive? Yes, but not by much compared to the equivalent rare earth ‘energy saving’, slow to start, and usually less illumination type.
Also, it stated “Will last up to 25 years”. We will see on that, but I expect they will last me out!
I had read that some LED 240V equivalent lamps failed within a year, usually due to their circuitry that provides the required voltage to the LED’s. Well, mine are still working fine, I’m glad to say.
