To buy a bulb simply click on the image below corresponding to the bulb you have chosen and you will be taken to the vendors website. The link will take you to a page which them allows you to select between differing colours and potentially dimmable and non-dimmable versions before you purchase.
If you want to get a good deal at LightRabbit and LEDHut then its worth waiting until they have an offer on – typically 15% to 30% off which happens for a few days each month – the prices quoted in the kit reflect these potential discounts, The easiest way is to register with the website and they will send you emails when their offers are on.
The vendors we recommend are as follows:
- LEDHut: offer good technical advice and a 5 year guarantee on all their products
- LightRabbit: offer good technical advice and a 5 year guarantee on all their products
- Screwfix: if you prefer a physical store (opposite Homebase) – they offer a 3 year guarantee, their staff are very friendly (but their head office have been unable to tell us why their ‘cool white’ bulbs have a colour temperature closer to ‘Natural or Day White’)
We don’t however recommend Homebase, because their bulbs are of relatively poor quality and brightness or ebay as bulbs often don’t match their quoted specifications, some are electrically dangerous, they often have no guarantees and getting redress can be difficult.
The specifications and prices of the bulbs are changing all the time, please help us maintain the kit and this website by emailing us if you come across any discrepancies? Also email us if you have any problems with the vendors.
