LED Vintage Filament Bulbs
Eglo, Bell, Crompton & Sylvania
Hi there!! Welcome to Light Bulb World TV.
In this video, we'll be taking a look at Vintage LED Filament lamps with products available from Bell, Eglo, Crompton and Sylvania.
Unless you have been living under a rock, don't go out much or watch TV of any kind, you will have seen some example of vintage lighting. The old time looking light bulbs that are the ultimate buzz word in the world of decorative lighting at the moment; they are everywhere. It's a look that we here at Lightbulb World have totally fallen in love with, and we are definitely not alone.
LED technology is continuously creating new solutions for all manner of lighting situations, with vintage filament being no exception. Replacing the normal carbon filament with one made of LED strip, these bulbs recreate the look of vintage incandescent bulbs incredibly well. Once switched on, it is actually quite difficult to tell them apart from their incandescent predecessors.
Let's take a look at what is on offer:-
Eglo: With a very comprehensive range, with Squirrel cage in standard size and mini, candle in standard shape and decorative bent tip, GLS, tube and 80 and 95mm Globes. Some in 3.5w, some in 4w but all offering 30000 hours lamp life, these Eglo LED vintage filament bulbs carry the vintage theme long into the future.
Crompton: Available in the expected Squirrel Cage and 95 and 125mm Globes in BC ans ES caps, don't be fooled into thinking that this is a run of the mill range. Both the Squirrel Cage and 125mm Globes are available in 7.5 watts, giving a lumen output of 638 lumens. Their party trick is that, although they look like normal LED filament bulbs, they are in fact dimmable. This means that you can still get that warm dimmed down vintage look and wind them up to be a household bulb that produces a useful amount of light.
Sylvania: Part of the much larger ToLEDo Retro range, this Squirrel Cage bulb is just one variation in a huge level of options and choices, with three different lumen outputs to choose from and dimmable or non dimmable version; but more on those in another video. With its gold tinted glass it certainly looks the part when lit, producing a warm 400 lumens at 4 watts and a life span of 15000 hours means it won't need changing any time soon.
Bell: Another extensive range from a world class bulb manufacturer, Bell's vintage filament range includes Squirrel Cage, 80mm & 125mm Globe, Candle, and Tubular Radio Valve in dimmable and non-dimmable formats. All operating at 4 watts, providing a very warm and comfortable 300 lumens, the Bell LED vintage filament range covers retro decorative lighting styles with the same antique flare that is essential to this style.
Of these ranges, Bell, Sylvania and Crompton offer dimmable functionality, let's take a look at them in action.
All these bulbs perform well when dimmed, from full light to very little, the action is smooth and controlled just like the incandescent bulbs they are designed to replace.
To dim these bulbs is to completely recreate that beloved vintage vibe, but not all bulbs work with all dimmers. All of these bulbs will work with the LED specific dimmers we sell on lightbulbworld.co.uk, but will work with others too, make sure you have found the right dimmers for your choice of bulb to avoid headaches and disappointment.
So there you are, LED Vintage Filament bulbs available from lightbulbworld.co.uk.
