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. L1 light bulbs were designed to provide a solution to the Building Regulations which require a percentage of all light fittings in new homes to be dedicated low energy – dedicated meaning that only an energy saving lamp can be used. The L1 light bulb is based on the GU10 format but in addition it incorporates a small hole between the two pins which accommodates a nipple which appears in the dedicated L1 lamp holder- the L1 bulbs can be used in all fittings with an L1 lamp holder and are also compatible with all GU10 lamp holders. 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...

Worse yet, if you bought a tp24 fitting, then you're "sort of" locked into a closed ecosystem. tp24's own fittings use proprietary standards. For example their GU10 fittings use 'L1' bulbs. L1 is just a GU10 bulb with a small hole in the base, between the pins. The fittings associated with these bulbs have a small plastic 'pin' in the socket which is designed to prevent you using other brands of bulbs in their fittings. (I crushed this pin with some pliers so now I can put any brand of GU10 in their fixture)
I beg to differ; this review's about the bulb, not the fitting. The point i'm trying to make is this: I don't trust this company. I don't trust companies that try to lock people into their own ecosystems, and then supply unreliable products. The term 'planned obsolescence' comes to mind.
I had 4 of these. Two failed in less than 3 months. They were exposed, not enclosed. A good LED bulb in a position of decent air circulation will last you years, not months. No, I did not bother doing a warranty or buying more of the same. I just went and bought a different brand instead.
The light output itself is... it's okay. It has a kind of sickly green cast though, which I did not enjoy.
I like everything about these bulbs - good colour, good light and very low power consumption. Like all LED bulbs, they don't come cheap, but they are supposed to last 25,000 hours, so that should be OK. But they don't! Two of the seventeen that I have in my kitchen have failed within a year - 1000 hours at most. Caveat emptor!

The 'neck' is not long enough to fit into my TP24 holders. Not worth sending back, fine some use or give them away.Published 23 months ago by John R. Wells
