Is this bulb suitable for what I need?
This bulb has a G4 fitting. These are two pin capsule bulbs that run with 12V transformers. They are commonly used in light fittings and cooker hoods. The pins on this fitting are straight pins.

Providing a huge 200-degree beam angle, in a soft warm white colour, this bulb provides a yellowish light which is closer to the more traditional bulbs. 2,700K is close to a standard filament bulb colour temperature.

This is a non-dimmable bulb, and must be used in a non-dimmable circuit. If you install this bulb into a circuit which is dimmable it may cause issues, even if you do not intend to use the dimming function.

What are the benefits of LED over traditional bulbs in my home?
LED bulbs offer huge reductions in energy consumption compared to their traditional equivalent, lowering your electricity bill by up to 90 per cent while producing a very similar lighting effect. LED bulbs are much more efficient, which makes them cooler to the touch, and so are a much safer alternative for lamps which younger children may come into contact with.

LEDs last up to ten times longer than their halogen equivalent, and between four and 40 times longer than other traditional products, and they produce consistent light output throughout the entirety of their life. This means that you won’t have to replace your bulbs anywhere near as often as you would with traditional household bulbs.

LED bulbs do not contain a filament which could be damaged, making them an extremely stable light source. LED bulbs provide instant light with no warm up time or visible flicker, just 100 per cent light from the moment you switch it on. LED bulbs will fit into your existing fittings, and can be combined with all other types of household bulbs, allowing you to replace your bulbs one at a time, to suit you. This saves you having to replace every bulb at once.

What are the benefits of LED over traditional bulbs for the environment?
LED bulbs dramatically reduce carbon emissions due to them converting up to 80% of the energy used into light, making them a brilliant choice not just for your pocket, but for the environment too. LED bulbs contain no harmful chemicals, which makes them safer to use and allows them to be disposed of cheaply and safely with minimal environmental impact, compared to fluorescent fittings which require expensive safe disposal.

Was sold this bulb and Dichroic Lamp Holder (VJ11) from your local shop. I was instructed to connect the 2 flying leads to 240 ac mains. On your website text for the bulb it mentions transformer. Have I been given the wrong information?

Asked by: dave3b
We cannot offer full advice on mains electrical installations, this job would be best left down To qualified Electricians, if you are at all unsure we would strongly recommend consulting a qualified electrician for help and support or to complete the job for you.
