Seeing at Last.,
This review is from: Philips Tornado Compact Fluorescent Spiral Light Bulb (B22 23 W) - Warm White (Kitchen & Home)
What a pleasant suprise,this lamp came on fairly brightly then in a short space of time was as good as the banned old vacuum bulb. It lit up a large room all by itself. So many modern lighting products are claimed to be better than they actually are but this one, with its soft white light (there are many "white colours" for bulbs I've found) did the job with only 20 odd watts of power consumption.
In the past I have replaced a few light fittings that needed various types of modern halogen bulbs, all needing multiple bulbs to produce enough light. Thus not only defeating the energy savings of a ban on vacuum bulbs that our Masters decreed but putting my bleedin' bills up. Now it's time to convert back to the bayonet sockets and see clearly again.
