Changing to energy-saving LED bulbs

I'm currently changing all the halogen downlights and standard lightbulbs in my house to LED to save on the energy bills.

The latest LEDs are pretty good, but cost a fortune – about £20 for a decent bulb. They're better than the older energy-saving compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) bulbs.

They last forever, though, and use about 10% of the energy so should pay for themselves in about 2 years.

Anyone else changed their bulbs for LEDs?

Add the modern electronic cigarette which can be used indoors and you could soon have

nicotine-stained, cob-webbed, more-modern 'with-it' LED, down at your local, fancier but... more expensive. :0)
