75W Blacklight UV Bulb BC

• Great for parties!
• Rated at 75W

A standard size light bulb with a special coating that produces a deep purple light and large amounts of Ultra Violet light. This invisible light is reflected back in the visible spectrum by fluorescent materials and dyes. White clothes glow brightly in the dark, fluorescent paints light up brilliantly!

  • Hopeless product, not as described

    I bought 3 of these and now feel like a mug as I did not read reviews before ordering, but relied on the Maplins name - no UV effect discernible with all 3 on together, even in total darkness. These were needed urgently for a party so I paid an exorbitant GBP10 for 2-day delivery which I am now told is not refundable. All-in-all. I am very dissatisfied and will think twice before buying from Maplins again. would give this a zero star rating if that were possible

  • Poor Product

    Fitted bulb into a standard light socket and switched on. It briefly glowed light purple, some smoke appeared within the bulb, then it went out.

  • Dont waste your money!

    I bought this bulb to use for a party as was lead to believe from the website that this bulb would be brilliant for a party and make things glow under UV light. Even in complete darkness this bulb does not work! We had white clothes, UV nail polish and face paints and not even a glimmer of UV lighting. This bulb only produces a dark purple light so don't be fooled by false advertising, I would love to be able to send this back and get money back but its probably not worth the hassle!

    If placed in the light fitting of a medium sized room for a party is this bulb actually able to illuminate white clothing and soda(tonic) water or is it too weak for this purpose? If not, can you recommend a bulb capable of this?

    Not really designed for this, for parties where you are using UV reactive equipment I would reccomned L28BB.
