Are you dedicated to saving energy in your home without compromising on style? tp24 dedicated energy efficient lights and light bulbs are the answer. tp24 has an expanding portfolio of energy efficient light bulbs offering a variety of options providing a sophisticated choice for luminaire design. With their design background tp24 has developed low energy light bulbs specifically for their attractiveness and small scale whilst giving optimum performance. tp24 energy efficient light bulbs offer up to 80% energy saving and last up to 8 times longer than a regular light bulb - approximately 8,000 hours which, depending on the room usage, would typically be 3 to 5 years - saving power consumption, running costs and reducing waste- to put this in perspective, a standard incandescent light bulb only lasts about 1,000 hours. A compact fluorescent lamp is a small fluorescent light bulb which is usually referred to as a CFL or energy saving light bulb. They use less energy than a traditional (or incandescent) light bulb to produce light because they are more efficient at changing electricity into light and they have a longer lifespan. A light emitting diode, commonly referred to as an LED, works in a different way. It is a solid-state, semiconductor that emits visible light, via electromagnetic radiation, when electricity is applied. tp24 LED lamps are super-efficient with luminous efficacy’s above 70lm/w, giving over 90% energy saving compared to traditional (incandescent) light bulbs. Unlike compact fluorescent lamps LED’s start instantly and achieve full power immediately, are much more reliable and last twice as long as a CFL and up to 20 times longer than standard incandescent light bulbs. Traditional lamps have always used watts as an indication of light that can be expected from the bulb; this hasn’t changed in over a hundred years. However, with new technology and more efficient lamps, watts are becoming increasingly irrelevant. The wattage of a bulb actually tells you how much electricity it uses, not how much light it produces. For example, if your existing lighting fixture energy consumption is usually 100 watts changing to a similar tp24 lighting fixture you will only use 20 watts. Light is measured in lumens. For example, a 60 watt bulb will consume 60 watts of electricity but it provides light in lumens, typically around 700 lumens. An energy efficient bulb might only consume 12 watts to provide the same level of light. As the phase out of traditional bulbs progresses, light measurement is moving from watts to lumens and you will see “lumens” printed on light bulb packaging. Lumens will be used to describe the light output of a bulb. tp24 low energy bulbs are not currently dimmable. Energy efficient light bulbs are not designed to be left on 24/7 i.e. they need a rest period – a bit like us! Also it is not environmentally friendly to leave them on all the time so we would recommend the use of a timer or sensor switch. All tp24 light bulbs are lead free and meet the new requirements set down by the government on heavy metals. All low energy lamps have a very, very small amount of mercury and this has been significantly reduced with the ROHs regulations introduced in 2006. A tp24 energy saving bulb contains between 1.2 and 5 milligrams of mercury. A typical mercury thermometer may contain between 0.5 and 3 grams of mercury whilst a mercury barometer may contain 100 to 600 grams of mercury which is around 25,000 to 150,000 times more than an energy saving bulb! When any energy efficient light bulb reaches the end of its life ideally it should be separated from the normal waste and properly re-cycled. There are a number of sites being set alongside regular bottle banks to accept fluorescent lamps. Please contact your local authority for the nearest facility. tp24 are registered under the WEEE directive. tp24 lamps can be sent back to us for recycling. tp24 cannot guarantee the current from your electricity suppliers and it is these fluctuations which do most damage to light bulbs. However we will replace any light bulb that fails within one year of purchase. This excludes bulbs that have been physically broken by misuse. (*excludes continued commercial use. Lamps must not be run for more than 10 hours in any 12 hour period.) This does not affect your statutory rights. Tp24 is focused on design and breaking new ground - dedicated to energy efficient solutions – join the lighting revolution today...

However my email to the seller, via Amazon, went unanswered when I requested a replacement for one of the seven bulbs that has subsequently failed.
There is a one year guarantee with these bulbs, (but I am not sure what this is worth if the seller ignores your attempts to contact them). This guarantee can apparently be extended by a further 12 months if you register the bulb at [...]
I understand that the life cycle of an LED light bulb follows a bath tub curve i.e. if they are going to fail they fail either early on, or at the end of their lifespan. So some failures initially are to be expected when buying larger quantities, but after that they should be pretty reliable.

The bulb failed after 1.5 year of light use (max 2 hours per day). First one of the LEDs burned through, then the bulb started flickering and soon died entirely. Read morePublished on 2 Nov. 2013 by wouter
