    High Power LED bulbs 11th Aug 18 at 8:11 PM
    What are the current options for higher power LED bulbs?

    Some years ago I bought what I think is an 18w LED from ASDA, and it works well and is (no surprise here) usefully brighter than the standard LED bulbs we use elsewhere.

    I don't think ASDA sell the same bulb any more. I've looked around and I can find similar bulbs [url=https://www.amazon.co.uk/AURAGLOW-Super-Bright-Bayonet-Light/dp/B018AXJYVE/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1534014576&sr=8-6&keywords=20w+led+bulb] but note the reviews stating that they sometimes have a short lifespan.

    Are there any quality high power LED bulbs?

    I had a look through Screwfix's site earlier today and couldn't find anything over 14w. Though, it was reasonably priced at £5.

    I'll have a look at Toolstation ... There's this which is 18W. https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Lighting/d220/LED+GLS+Lamps/sd3382/Integral+LED+GLS+Frosted+Lamp/p46197 Toolstation is convenient as there's one just down the road.

    The only problem is that the 20W on Amazon would also look to be a good option. If not for the inconsistent reviews. I am wondering if the higher power bulbs often have short lifespans.

    Any experiences with higher power bulbs?

    I find daylight bulbs much brighter , whats the max wattage the fitting recommends ? [14w is the same as 65w]

    A decent 18W LED should be putting out the equivalent of 200 watts??

    Is this a floodlight?
