    LED Hut are obviously on a sales drive! They have now increased their discount offer for readers of this website to a massive 25% discount until the end of May only. I am told that this offer isn’t widely available and that it absolutely has to end at the end of May. I have said this before, but if you are thinking of replacing those inefficient incandescent lamps with something a little more energy efficient now really is a great time to do so.

    What’s more, this discount code applies to all products on their site, not just the spots and bulbs as the previous code was.

    The revised banner is below. Click it and enter the code LEDLW25 at the checkout to get a massive 25% off all products including GU10′s, MR16′s, B22′s, ES fit bulbs, LED flood lights and LED strips and drivers.

    Don’t forget, they are now selling 5 watt GU10′s with a stated 460 lumen output. That’s possibly the highest output from any LED on the Internet and reports on this forum are that they work beautifully with LightwaveRF dimmers.

    I too had excellent service from LED Hut until today. I always judge a company by how well they respond to problems, and today I had a chance to put it to the test with LED Hut and they came up woefully short.
    Responding to a product recall for their 8 watt GU10s, I telephone their customer services, explaining that my kitchen would be devoid of light until the replacements arrived and they advised me that, once I had posted the old bulbs, send them proof of postage and they would send replacements immediately, great! Within a couple of hours all had changed, my replacements would not be posted until the recalls had arrived. When I complained their ‘customer services’ were rude, unhelpful, obstructive and refused pointblank my request to speak to a manager.
    My intention is to convert my whole house to LEDs but after today I wont be shopping at LED Hut – caveat emptor

    @brenmjones, I’ve tipped off my contact at LED Hut about the poor customer service you appear to have received. They agree with your post that they shouldn’t leave you in darkness so are going to try and make amends and restore your faith in them. Perhaps you could keep us all informed?

    Don’t forget the 25% discount offer expires on Friday. The 20% offer will continue to work, but if you want that extra 5% off, act now! Time is running out!

    Less than 12 hours remaining to benefit from the increased discount. Who’s going to be buying some LEDs today then?

    I wasn’t sure which bit of the Forum to ask this in, but seeing as I’m thinking about responding to this offer from LED Hut….

    I would like to replace my 12v G4 under-cabinet bulbs with LEDs from LED Hut – there is a warning at the bottom of the G4 page which says ‘not all transformers will be compatible with LEDs’ – how would one know?
    Or do you just take the plunge, buy the bulbs, then go back for transformers if they don’t work?
    And if they don’t (work) – might they be damaged by trying?
    (They are quite expensive to risk burning up!)
    Thanks!

    I think the message probably refers to the requirement for a constant current driver. If my basic electronics (and reading of Wikipedia on Ohms law is right) it means that the driver must vary its output voltage in response to changes in resistance. I (current) = V (volts) divided by R (resistance).

    I’m sure someone will correct me if I’m wrong (please do).

    This basically means you need a driver that maintains a constant current within the tight parameters required by LEDs. If you have a transformer which outputs constant voltage, then changes in the resistance may make the current too low (causing the LEDs to not light) or too high (causing the LEDs to go pop). How the electronics varies between the two is over my head I’m afraid.

    Looking at the drivers and LEDs at LED Hut, you can power up to 10 2.4 watt LEDs for less than £20. When you consider the Lumilife 2.4 watt LEDs are over a fiver each, you only need to toast 4 LEDs before you have spent the same as a new driver anyway and if you get that far you probably need a new driver too! With 25% off today only, that £20 comes down to £15, so it might be worth getting one anyway to be on the safe side. That said, I’ve replaced halogen MR16′s with LEDs in my bathroom and didn’t replace the transformers. No problems so far and they have been in a year or more.

    Thanks Chris, I’d tend to agree regards buying a new driver just-in-case…
    It’s just a shame I’d need two, as the lights are in two sets, each switched independently.
    I’ll scratch my head a little more, before time runs out.
    If anyone else is reading this & can offer advise/experience with G4 LEDs in the next hour or two, please chip in!

    I decided to go for a single driver & one set of G4 bulbs (for the cooker hood), to see how they look, before deciding on the other units.
    I went for the *new* 2.4 Watt Samsung G4s (20W replacement) – a bit pricey, but I’ll let you know what I think, in case anyone else is considering.

    Also a set of the *new* 5W GU10s, for the Kitchen ceiling, after reading your glowing review!
    It will be so good not to have to keep on at the family to ‘turn those damn Kitchen lights off’ all the time – 300W to 30W – they can leave them on all evening if they want!

    Clicked through from this site, used code etc. Thanks very much.

    The 20% offer is still on, use code LEDRF20 at the checkout for 20% off. I will put the banners back for this later when I’m on my laptop rather than phone! ;-)

    Just to say I’m really impressed with the Samsung G4 bulbs – a very good replacement for the 20W halogens, both in brightness and colour – in fact they may even be a little brighter… They also manage to recreate the ‘sparkle’ that halogens do, if you know what I mean.
    I’ll get a matching driver & bulbs for the other units soon.

    I’m also pleased with the 5W G10s, they are every bit as bright as the 50W halogens, though just a touch cooler in colour.
    Bit disappointed one of my 5 bulbs keeps not coming on, strangely until maybe 1min after the others, I’ll probably have to return it.
    Also they were a swine to fit in my particular downlight fittings – the outer ring is standard size, but the body tapers less than a standard halogen, meaning they are a very tight fit between the springs above (that hold the fitting in the recess). Not quite sure how easily they will come out again!

    I see http://www.lightrabbit.co.uk are doing a similar deal but also have a competion to win Rod Stewart concert tickets. I bought 34 of their gu10 bulbs and they work well.

    I missed the 25% discount but just tried to place an order using the 20% code only to be told that its no longer valid :(
