Your current bulb may be using a lot of electricity unnecessarily – you can now easily switch to an LED bulb, which will not only save you money and electricity but as it is instant start and very bright you won’t even realise you’ve switched! As the chart above shows, the most common chosen replacement for a large screw-in bulb is a 4w LED golf ball with bayonet cap. These LED golf ball bulbs use only 4w of electricity, they are instant start – there is no warm up time at all – and are the same shape as the bulbs they replace.
If you have a dimmer switch, you need to use a low energy bulb that says it is dimmable. Not a problem, we have a dimmable golf ball bulbs such as the 6.5w dimmable golf ball with bayonet cap.
If you want more light than the 4w version will give you, there is also a 6.7w LED golf ball bulb, which is just slightly taller than its baby brother.
The standard bayonet cap. which is a very common light bulb cap in the UK can also be known or described as ‘BC’ (bayonet cap), or B22. This is because they are 22mm in diameter across the base (not including the pins, which would make them roughly 27mm).
