LED Bulbs for Businesses
Recently we’ve noticed an increase in the popularity of high quality LED lighting amongst our business customers. Longer light bulb life spans and a reduction in energy consumption are convincing business owners to make the switch to bulbs such as our GU10 LED.
Compared to a standard incandescent light bulb the initial price of LED bulbs may appear high. However, if we factor in the savings that will be made over the lifetime of the LED’s usage, it’s easy to see why making the switch is worthwhile. Continue reading
How many Halogen bulbs does it take . . .
It is well documented that LED light bulbs have a long life span. But what about their Halogen counterparts? A standard Halogen bulb will only last for around 2000 hours. This is an important thing to remember when your next bulb blows and you are considering making a change to a more energy efficient style of lighting. Continue reading
The purpose of this blog is for information only and is not really intended to promote our products. With this in mind, this blog post has been written to explain the difficulties with dimming LED technology and why it has taken a while for us to stock dimmable GU10 LED bulbs on our website.
LED technology is an excellent source of lighting as it is very bright, stable and uses a very small amount of electricity. However, the problem with dimming LED bulbs stem from the very fact that they consume such a small amount of electricity compared to traditional incandescent light bulbs. Continue reading
Beware of Cheap Bulbs
As LED lighting becomes more and more popular, more people than ever are enjoying the benefits of low cost LED lighting with reliable and long lasting LED light bulbs. However, some people are finding that the amazing specifications quoted by some companies online, really are too good to be true.
Many people make the mistake when buying products online of not taking the necessary precautions to ensure that the products they are buying, and the companies they are buying from are reputable. This can result in them being left with faulty products, no one to contact if something is wrong with their products, or products far below the quality that was stated online.

Light bulb voltages
While there are many different light bulb fittings and bases, perhaps the most important difference is the voltage they operate at. You’ll find information on the voltage of each of the LEDs in the detailed listings on the Simply LED website.

Buying and using LED bulbs
LED bulbs are the newest lighting technology, developed in recent years to provide white light for general lighting applications. Being a new technology, LED bulbs are still relatively expensive compared to the old incandescent bulbs. However, as LED bulbs use much less electricity and last much longer, you will save money. Now you can replace many of your standard bulbs with LED bulbs such as B22, MR16 and GU10 ranges.
Things to consider when deciding which light bulbs to buy: Continue reading
Environmental benefits of LED bulbs
Sounding the death knell of the incandescent light bulb
Technological progress since the Industrial Revolution has seen a series of advances which 'kill off' an older generation of product or activity. On the high seas, steel ships replaced wooden ones, steam replaced sail, and oil replaced coal. In the home, flat screen TVs killed off CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) televisions, and broadband killed off dial-up. Continue reading

Why putting LEDs and Incandescent bulbs on the same circuit is not recommended
LEDs are now the light of choice in many households, and with good reason. More cost-effective than incandescents, they’re also kinder to the planet, using far less energy while giving superior brightness. But as long as people still possess traditional light bulbs, there will always be a temptation to combine LEDs and incandescent bulbs on the same circuit. While this is technically possible, it is ill-advised for a number of reasons. Continue reading
The light ‘bulb’ revolution
Have you ever wondered how the traditional incandescent light bulb got its distinctive shape? The sphere surrounding the filament allows light to be distributed evenly in all directions, while the neck contains an opening for mounting and electrical connection. The design is still going strong after more than a century – quite literally in the case of the world’s oldest light bulb. Continue reading
