    picked up a third one of those vtac batten lights going to space them out bit better tomorrow when i have some free time going to aim for one centered on each garage door and the third in the middle of those two. during the day the light provided by two just isn't quite enough but at night its more than adequate so three should solve the daytime problem.

    I have a LAP LED Flood light bought from Screwfix a few years ago has been working good, this replaced a BG one I bough from WF Electrical that had to be replaced under warranty within a year and a half of operation - then the replacement failed.

    Hi guys...

    Just wanted your opinion on what bulbs to go for as I am trying to replace all our GU10 bulbs to LED.

    We have 5 LED bulbs (50W max) outside lighting up the canopy - front of the house. Looking for the most lumens out there and something that is sturdy enough to be placed outdoors please.

    Also looking for about 15 bulbs to light up the kitchen and bathrooms. Thanks.

    they aren't built to last. weather will get to them over time. buy the cheapest one off screwfix which is bright enough.

    Can you buy bayonet LED filament frosted that is the equivalent to the old 100w incandescent perl bulbs?

    All i can find at Argos and Homebase is 60w...

    Thanks
