    Oh god please let this be nationwide and stores have stock.

    Just bought 3 of the 13w at $15 each on the weekend….
    My local WW only had the lower w bulbs at 1/2 price on clearance.

    How bright is the 1400 lumen one for an average bedroom? Overkill?

    • +5 votes

      100 watt in the old money.
      Overkill? For a bedroom, more like 'retina'kill. :p

      It might kill the romance. But if you plan to do 'home videos' the more light the better…

      How long is a piece of string. Depends on the room size, paint colour, the light fitting, the shade (if any), and where in the room it is. You can only answer that question by buying one of the bulbs. In a small, white room, a single 1400 bulb hung from the middle of the room will likely be too bright for most. A larger darkly coloured room however, with shaded wall lights, may need as many as four of these bulbs for adequate lighting.

      Could be an overkill depending on your bedroom brightness preference and the light shade. I find 10.5W is bright enough for reading etc in a 4x4

    •  

      From my recent experience, 1000 or 1400 in a warm white, even for a relatively small bedroom. Some people don't like a lot of light though, so 800 to 1000 would be alright imo.

  •  

    Bunnings did a pricematch sale on the ES bulbs last week, so keep an eye out for that when Woolworths has no stock.

  •  

    Hope they have stock, time to replace a few around the house

    ahhh … no es!

      I could be wrong, but I have a feeling it may be all Philips LED globes that are half price. They tend to do this with other things in their catalogues where they have a picture of one thing, and the discount then applies across all varieties of that same thing. Let's wait and see :)

      •  

        hope you are right my friend. i just bought the 10.5 ES warm white. cool white not available, and the higher W is not avail too

  •  

    How do these compare to the Costco Luminus brand LED bulbs? They are $3 off for a 3 pack at the moment. I'll be heading in to check out the exact price. Might buy some and take back if not as good and cheap as the Philips ones.

    Any mr16 downlight globes on sale?

    Edit:accidentally checked associated.

    •  

      Woolworths has been discounting globes for a few weeks now, the 13w was $10 last week. I also got 6 twin pack Philips 35w mr16 eco 680 lumens for $6 each.

    •  

      I saw a few Victorian stores were clearing out the GU10 and MR16 downlight 4 packs (Phillips) for about $10.00, down from around $32.00. They were with the other bulbs on clearance at each store.
      This has been over the last 2 weeks. The last ones sold at my local this week.

    • accidentally checked associated.

      Unchecked for you. If it happens again, you should be able to just edit your comment and uncheck it yourself. :)

    Price match on bunnings

    •  

      are these cheaper than at bunnings, woolies usually has all this sort of stuff at 'convenience' prices!

  •  

    I just moved into a new place with 8 blown bulbs in one fitting. They need the small E14 screw fitting though. Would they have those ones?

    • +1 vote

      It really depends on the store I think, but my Woolies do stock the small Edison screw E14/ES14

      •  

        great, I will check out my store and see what they have.
        I feel much more confident with these rather than the no-name led filament bulbs on eBay which are around $3 each.

    I've heard that LED is supposedly much more efficient than other technologies, but is it economic to replace functioning CFLs prior to them blowing?
    From what I can tell, the Watts are only slightly lower with LED, which makes me think that it is only worth changing to LEDs as I run out my existing supply of spare CFLs and certainly not worth replacing working bulbs. Am I correct?

    •  

      I agree. I'm also waiting for them to blow before I buy led and replace.

    •  

      I waited a long time for CFL's to die, then replaced. If you're that concerned you could replace and just store the old CFL's as spare. That questions needs specific instruments and testing to answer fully/correctly.

      LED is definitely the way forward though.

      I've got a house full of CFL downlights. They're about 8 years old and I'm estimating that I'll have one die every month or two. Just trialling some LED globes (OSRAM and Philips).

      Basically, I'll replace a room at a time and shuffle any old CFLs out to another room or to the cupboard as a spare. Try and keep the areas all lined up.

    •  

      CFLs also dim with age

    •  

      The other thing to consider is heat, mercury vapor and UV light exposure in CFLs. It won't kill you unless you're super careless but affordable quality LED globes are wise replacement especially if you have kids.

    Nice thanks for the heads up TA

    Doesnt matter if no stock, go to front and ask for raincheck. I never miss out on bargains cos of no stock. Rainchecks ftw.

    Not on par with the dimmable quality phillips ones bought this price from dicksmith 1 year ago it doesn't look from the linked boxes. Potentially a price match trick might work.

  •  

    Are any of these a more natural light colour?
    I have CFLs and halogens in the living room and i cannot stand the white light the CFLs emit. I always just flick on the old school halogen globes.
    Is it just me?

    • +1 vote

      The 3000K warm white LEDs give a pleasant light very similar to halogen lights. 2700K is very warm, like the old incandescent lights. A few places sell 2700K LEDs, like IKEA.

    Can confirm that this works at bunnings even as of now (11/04/17) (deal starts on the 12th). I asked a worker in the store if they price matched and he said no but then I went to the service desk where they did the price match (And 5% price beat) and I purchased a dozen of them. They didn't care if you bought bayonet or edison screw. I bought the 9W Cool white, just installed them and they look great! Its a shame that woolworths does not have any of these for e14 size holes as I need some of those for my hallway.

    Thanks Mr TA, went in and pretty much updated all the lighting due to this post.
    cheers

    Got three for various purposes.

    Plenty of stock.

    You can see what they are doing, clearing out old stock since they have new generation LED bulbs from Philips coming out that do things like switch from cool white to warm white depending on you turning them on twice.

    •  

      The philips bulbs that change from cool to warm white were at Woolworths when I picked up my bulbs. The were only in ES and I think they were $27 each !!!

  •  

    is there any adapters (good safe ones) I can get to convert E14 to E27 bulbs?
    I looked for it on google but they are all the cheapo no brand/chinese ones…I'm worried about the fire safety…

  •  

    Thanks TA. I ended up buying a dozen, they had both warm/cool with BC/ES fitting for 9/13W. No cool white BC/ES for the 6W sadly, would have liked a couple for bedside reading. Don't expect there to be stock left in every store.

  •  

    Damn. I need 5500 kelvin bulbs! :(

  •  

    I believe that this LED needs to be used in an open fitting and not suitable for a "closed" fitting ? IS it because it is too hot so it needs air freely ?
