Product Description

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...

I have these lights in my bathroom and they consistently fail after about a few months of normal usage.

I have 8 in my bathroom and have replaced pretty much all of the lights a couple of times in the last year.
whilst the company is good at replacing them when they fail this is a tedious process of sending them off each time.

The other problem is how they fail:

First they start to flicker occasionally
Then they Flicker a lot(like strobe lights)
Then they go off completely (sometimes for days)
Then they sometimes come back to life for a couple of weeks
Then they die for good and go back to the company.
Then I get a replacement and after 3-4 months the cycle repeats!

I'd not recommend these to anybody.

By Nod on 23 Nov. 2013
Had a new house built and had these fitted as spots - 44 in total. The light intensity is good as is the colour of the light. Really looked forward to waiting years before I changed the lamps (quote on packaging 'Last 20 times longer than regular lamps', '20,000 switchable cycles').... after less than a year one lamp blew. Then on the anniversary (as of now) 2 more blew - getting on for 10% of the total. It would not be so bad if these were £2-£3 each as the money you spend of these might be off-set by the saving on electricity, but not so. I don't know what it is that fails in these lamps but the manufacturer better improve its quality!! Would I recommend.... no... it does not do what it says on the tin...

Really poor quality lightbulb but they were fitted as part of our house (all 18 bulbs of them!) and other bulbs won't fit. So if you have feel a little miffed that you have been left in the position of having to spend nearly £10 on a bulb which is guaranteed for 2 years (although claims to last much longer than that) and find that within a year 15 bulbs have already gone chances are you have this bulb. On a positive note, TP24 are as good as their word and have replaced each bulb with another by return post so we haven't been out of pocket, and the last batch we got are very different and allegedly a lot more reliable. The jury is out on those, but this bulb should be avoided at all costs.

Tp 24, what can I say, worst bulb on the market
The story so far, we live in a new build house, bought 3 years ago total of 24 bulbs in this house, replaced them 4 yes 4 times!!!! at £7.99 each total £767.04 plus postage and packing, disgraceful.
Rung the developer who directed me to the supplier only to be informed it was not their fault but a 'power surge'!!!!
Contacted an electrician who informed me a power surge was 'a load of garbage' the bulbs are not made to last and to save money it would be best to have new fitments installed which would eventually save me more money in the long run!!!
It is very difficult to buy these bulbs at normal retail outlets.
When i eventually ordered 8 from the suppliers was told to register each bulb individually online!!!! Guess what 2 bulbs went 4 months later, informed supplier to be told they have no trace of me registering them online.
Saving up to have al fitments replaced DOES NOT DESERVE ANY STARS

Amazingly bright and fast lighting for a very low energy bulb. I have L1 fittings from TP24 which have to have low energy gu10 type bulbs and won't take the standard gu10. These LED ones are amazing and much better than the bulbs which came with the lights. At around 3 watts - AMAZING1

Completely agree with the two reviews above. We have a new house and constantly have to replace these bulbs. They do fail as noted above on an all too regular basis. Give me the old fashioned bulbs any day, what a ridiculous waste of time and money these are. Unfortunately it's a captive market so it's either buy them or have no light!!!

This LED bulb is supposed to be the best energy saving type because it is only 2.5w and with light brightness equivalent to 35w but sad to say that this don't last that long. We've got these in our newly built housing unit. 2 months later they started to fail. Same thing happens to our neighbours. We informed our housing developer about it. This is not the SMD type and when 1 LED element fails the rest will not light as well. The bulb holder is also deeper (7.6) compared to the standard GU10 (5.5). It's not worth the price even it has a 1 year warranty.

If by some ill fate you are an unhappy owner of TP24 fixtures (frankly I have no idea how anyone could buy TP24 system for themselves) then this LED lamp is way to go. After two of my energy-efficient bulbs stopped working, I decided give the LEDs a chance, and I must say I will never go back to CFL's. The LEDs are much brighter and light up immediately.
