Light bulbs

Who on earth decided on these new style light bulbs they are absolutely useless. The amount of light they give out is zeros . thank goodness we still have some PROPER light bulbs around the house.

Re: Light bulbs



Whoever invented this shot be shot. Absolutely useless. Slow to get to maximum output and ugly. the sooner we go back to conventional light bulbs the better

Re: Light bulbs

Here in Canada you cannot buy the old style bulbs any more. Government interference doncha know.

I find that if you buy the daylight rather than the soft white you get a better light.

Re: Light bulbs

I'm still working my through the old style light bulbs. Loads left

You need a degree these days to buy a light bulb. Remember back in the day, when it was easy peasy and they'd always check they worked before you bought them?

They look like something a doctor would use to insert in a persons private parts

I bought myself a battery desk lamp too because the light in the sun lounge, where I read my books, is so bad.

Re: Light bulbs

eBay I find still has some sellers that have old style bulbs, I'd give you the item number but then you might all buy them up
