BETA Adult Terriers with Chicken, 2 kg (Pack of 4) by BETA
5.0 out of 5 stars Fewer farts is good!, 17 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)

Plumen E27 Metal Set Plus Drop Cap, Copper by Plumen

Installing it was a bit of a faff - unless you have a very high ceiling, you will need to but the cable, and it was tricky getting the remaining bits of cable to fit into the connectors. Once installed, it produces a decent enough light, though not particularly bright and not as low-energy as LED equivalents.
