I love my Lumie clock and it has made my mornings ...
on 27 May 2017
I wasn't sure if these were 'special' bulbs that you need to buy for a Lumie clock, and I don't think they are, but to be on the safe side thought I would order from Lumie, as the light gets very bright and the plastic casing of the clock gets quite warm, and I did not want to risk getting the wrong strength bulb and setting fire to my bedroom! When I took the old bulb out of my Lumie clock, the one that was in it when I bought it, it apeared to be an ordinary bulb, not branded by Lumie, so I could have just gone to B and Q and sourced the same size and strength bulb. I read quite a few negative reviews on here of people having bought these bulbs who thought they had been ripped off as they were not branded 'Lumie' products, so thought it would be worth mentioning this to put people's mind at risk. I ordered three bulbs, they all arrived very well packaged to avoid breakage in transit, I tested them all in my clock and they are all worked. At £4.99 a pop, and no P and P (as I waited til I had an order of £20) and given that the first bulb lasted three years, AND I have the peace of mind of knowing that they are the correct bulbs for my clock, I would say it is well worth it. I love my Lumie clock and it has made my mornings SO much more peaceful.
