Am wondering will this affect cars lorries buses  farm machinery tractors,etc will the Old chestnut,Halogen verses LCD headlights rear its ugly Head  again.
Interesting thoughts,I am sure there will be someone with an enlightening observation sooner or later.
The news Item was not very exacting in the consequences ,regarding the motor industry in general.

Seems to be domestic and industrial filament bulbs that are being banned  because of the power used to get same light output as an LED.  Flourescent tubes also getting banned.   While we continue to rely on fans on sticks for our electricity we need to cut consumption to the bone because we never know when the fans are gonna run and stop, they may have to ban electric vehicles for the same reason... :o
Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

That might be a good idea as well, then I will be able to travel without watching battery level and wondering where one can recharge up etc.
However as we are not even considering changing to EVs until the last possible moment ,no worries yet!,!!

;D ;D LOL. Sorry, but that is brilliant. I'm stealing that quote.

Re led bulbs, our house has led in all fittings for several years now. I have no idea if they have paid for themselves, but looking at the eco rating charts was enough to convince me to pop to Screwfix and buy a bunch. Got a shoe box full of old bulbs in the garage to get rid of when I remember. Maybe I'll have a 'lightbulb' moment!  :D

I've only recently changed my lounge light bulb from a 150w GLS to a 100w LED, had to change the dimmer switch as well to a LED compatible.

Why the architect only designed in a single light fitting for a 20 foot room with 1 window beats me.
Let's be careful out there!

Our place has been all LED for well over 5 years. There is a very clever socket/support for the bigger light fittings in Japan so they are very easy to change. If you rent an apartment you might well have to provide your own.

No complaints at all and it's great not having to change and dispose of bulbs or fluorescent tubes all the time. I think we must have got our money back by now but I haven't calculated.

Really? Is that normal practice?

Yes. It is a normal practice but not universal. Sometimes too a tenant will leave their fitting when they move and the landlord will not remove it so you get a pass. Otherwise, you have to provide your own and plug them in.
