Rated 4 out of 5 by from Led bulb replacment  I didn't have to change anything - just plug it in. Light is nice and bright, too. Perfect solution.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does what it says... Replaced a broken fluorescent with this LED version. It was a little on the pricey side, but if it gives the 40,000 hours service life it claims, then it works out as pretty good value. Easy to install, also came with a starter.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from misleading / wrong info This is correct for 2-pin 2D lamps but package includes dummy starter which is misleading, the instructions are confusing, and the manufacturer's helpline is confused/just plain wrong: 2-pin 2D lamps have a built-in starter and presumably all must have magnetic (not electronic) ballast. Can't say about reliability, only just fitted it!

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).
