    Hi ,I have just bought and fitted 6 LED bulbs? to replace the Halogen bulbs in my van and am already impressed with the difference made, our van is a lot brighter and we will supposedly use less battery power, even if we don't the extra brightness is well worth the £46 we paid for the LEDs I bought G4 .10 LED side pin type and got a discount of about £7.80p I believe others have sung the praises of LEDs on here but just wanted to add my satisfaction to other posts.:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    I have swopped some of the house lights for LEDs and agree they are good, but brighter ? I suppose it depends how many you put in:Smile:

    Where can I buy led lights from and please give me the precise type of buld/wattage and power I will need. I have 9 lights in the living/kitchen/sleeping area. That is not counting the panoramic window which has 2 tube florescants.

    Heres a link to one supplier...

    LED BULBS

    cant advise on type and power without knowing what type you have now.

    G4 type seems to be the most common.

    many different types and light outputs though the 'norm' seems to be around 20 to 25watt equivilent.
