Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just plug it in As others have said, take out the old CFL and just plug this in. That's it, it works. I swear it's brighter than the old 16W CFL even though the spec says 750lm whereas the CFL is just over 1,000. As for reliability, who knows. If it lasts as long as they claim then ask me again in a 1,000 years or so.

will this fit the same fitting as a GR8 bulb

I would like to replace old 2 pin 2D 16w bulb with a LED one but need to make sure that this bulb with replace my old GR8 bulb
Asked by: Camden1
Hi Camden1, This lamp has a standard 2D cap (which seems to have originally been called GR8) and is compatible with fittings using a Magnetic Ballast and separate Starter (a dummy version of which comes with the lamp and _must_ be used to avoid damaging the lamp).

Is a starter really required?

Why does the description say an LED starter is required but the reviews indicate it's a straight and simple replacement for a CFL version?
Asked by: Triedit
I fitted one of these in a fitting that had a failed electronic ballast. I removed the ballast and binned it. I had to replace the 4 pin Base with a 2 pin Base. I wired the 2 pin base directly to the mains and it works perfectly. The 2 pin bases are available at electrical wholesalers. As for the starter it is not required in this configuration. The starter actually contains a 1 ohm resistor which is effectively a short circuit. However the starter also acts as a weak link and would blow if a fault or incorrectly wired In an inductive ballast configuration. Don't attempt this unless you are electrically competent.

2D 2 pin CFL bulbs versus 2D 2 pin LED bulbs

I have 2D 2 pin fittings, each with a twilight sensor, fitted with 16W CFL bulbs. I wish to replace the bulbs with LED bulbs. Can 2D 2 pin LED bulbs be used directly in these fittings, or must the fittings be modified in some way to accommodate LED bulbs?
Asked by: PeterGHughes
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This Luceco G24D 2-Pin 2D LED Light Bulb 750lm 6.5W has been designed as a direct replacement for a 16W fluorescent lamp in a magnetically ballasted fitting (as long as the starter is replaced with the supplied `dummy' version).

Does this lamp work in a High Frequency circuit, and in an Emergency circuit?

Asked by: Waitey
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This Luceco G24D 2-Pin 2D LED Light Bulb 750lm 6.5W is designed for use in fittings with magnetic ballasts, and as such comes complete with a replacement `dummy' starter. If you have an electronic ballast (i.e. there is no separate starter) then you would need the electronic version of the lamp (3810X).
