After spending an absolute fortune on light bulbs from a very popular diy store i decided to give these bulbs a go. I can genuinely state that already after replacing the original bulbs with these they have already out lived the bulbs purchased from that well known diy store. I can not only see for longer but i am saving money too.
I’m one of those people who is unconvinced that the legally mandatory energy-saving versions of light bulbs give anywhere near such a good light as their incandescent forerunners. I bought a hanging chandelier light that takes five small 60 w candle-type bulbs, only to discover that local stores have suitable opalescent bulbs only up to 40w. To get 60w bulbs my only option was to buy clear versions (and i see those have now sold out). Obviously i was intended to enjoy the wonders of new, cleaner technology 3w-11w bulbs and keep a torch handy in the living room in case anyone sitting there wishes to see something. All power to the suppliers of these bulbs. They arrived rapidly, well packed, and allow my new lighting to fill the room with brightness.
Quality supplier makes for quality bulbs. . Some people think that bulbs like this are going out of stock and they won’t be able to get them in the future. This isn’t true as all the firms which were making incandescent bulbs are still making them. The only difference is the packs now have ‘for industrial use only’ written on them. I buy lots and lots of these bulbs as i sell them on other sites to people who don’t manage to find these for themselves. I’ve not had one single complaint about any of them. Dba send them quickly, well packed and working. I can’t fault them, they make me look really good. Have no doubt, these bulbs are pukka. Here are the specifications for the Eveready 50 x G45 Round Globe Golf Ball Light Bulbs in 60 Watt Bayonet B22 Fitting Opal:

I bought these on amazon because i couldn’t find any ordinary bayonet light bulbs in the shops. One day, i’ll start replacing all my light bulbs with led ones but as my fittings are all old, i hope to wait until i have replaced them before investing a substantial amount on led bulbs. By then i’ll probably be nearly 70, so any led light bulbs i buy then will probably out-live me by several years.
Bulbs fine; customer service brilliant. Let me say first and foremost – if you have any problems explain your problem to the supplier – ‘dependable trading ltd’. Some of my bulbs were broken in transit. I emailed and explained this to them and their response was fast (next day) and sympathetic; and the problem was resolved quickly and amicably to my full satisfaction the following day. I’d give dependable trading 10 stars for customer service if i could. Addendum: the bulbs seem fine; i tested all of the unbroken ones (lol) and they all worked fine.
Reviews from purchasers :
- Packaging Paul 4 out of the 10 bulbs were
- Very Very Pleased To Find These Bulbs
- Does what it says on the box!
We were looking for suitable small replacements for standard-sized bayonet bulbs for a couple of side lamps and these are perfect for the job. We had tried the ‘low-energy, green’ type but they were hopeless – too big (for the required wattage) and without the much-vaunted long life, so it was back to the bulbs that we know and love. The ones we’ve used so far have not been any problem.
We need these bulbs due to the size and shape of our lightshades – 6 bulbs for the one room. I tried qi bulbs previously but these were more expensive and did not last any longer than the previous tungsten bulbs. The g45 bulbs fit beautifully and are cheaper. They have not been in use long enough to judge the lifetime but there is no reason to suppose this will be less than other bulbs. I expect to order more in the future when needed.
