It's time for more enlightenment

Dimmable low energy LED lights built to replace standard bulbs apparently have a narrow field of view, and require bulky heatsinks which if not earthed can be an electrocution hazard.

The LITMS technology hopes to have overcome these problems, and it looks like they will work with conventional dimmers.

On top of that they shouldn't burn your house down like the dimmable CFL's

Now this looks more promising [:)

*being lazy*

Did either of you (or anyone else) find a manufacturer / UK Supplier?

I'll see if I can request some samples for testing with various hardware.


Thanks

Hi Rob,

I put the LITMS Google search in my first post in this thread, and I originally found the bulbs here.

It does look like they will work with existing dimmers, but we will have to try one with X10 and BBSB to find out.

I have got some Philips MasterLED lamps.

The 12 Watt ones (on sale at amazon) offer a really natural
colour light just like an old filament lamp and also dim
(with leading edge dimmers).

They look a bit odd when off being yellow in colour and are
also £40.00 each :(

Bulbs time !

I counted 11 * 50W MR16 halogen bulbs (550W !) in my kitchen split into two banks. I've replaced them with Philips Master 10W leds (Total load now 110W). These are excellent bulbs, and the light is as good as the 50W bulbs they replaced

I then moved on to the bathroom, where I have replaced 5* 50W MR16 with Philips Master 10W leds as well. I couldn't resist fitting a BBSBICH dimmer to those to see how well they dim. Not bad, but they do go off at very low dim levels

Now for full green-ness, do I need to plant the old MR16's in the garden and see if the sprout
