Very bright low energy bulbs

  Graham. 20:55 04 Sep 07

In Homebase, I saw a bulb in a display that seemed much brighter than normal. Would this be a 'Daylight' bulb? Couldn't see any for sale.

Did you actually ask a member of staff?

No, it was the first day, they were all busy.

I have been using similar 'straight' tubes for several years at work, most people prefer them.
Not very 'green' though as they are imported from the USA.

Daylights are not necessarlily brighter but have a different colour temperature being a more blue colour than standard lamps.

Can be "green" as well click here=

I ordered two 30W Daylights from Ricam (link above) late on Monday. They arrived at 7:55 today. Can't wait for it to go dark!

I use low wattage bulbs all over my meagre flat, if anyone is a bit skint like me they sure ease the burden of electricity prices these day, ive 2 spare should anyone want them..i believe, without looking they are 60 watt...11 watts the ozone layer...think the world has left it too long for that though.
