With all our Anglepoise sprung desk lamps a high efficiency E27 LED bulb is supplied in pack providing the equivalent light output of a traditional 40W incandescent bulb with a warm white light.
Traditional incandescent bulbs are no longer available for purchase across the UK and Europe as the world moves to more energy efficient LED technology.
The supplied bulb will provide many years of use, at the same time saving on the running costs of the lamp.
If there is a need to change the bulb the following is a short guide, note the bulb fittings on all Anglepoise products made after 2000 are all E27 (ES) screw in bulbs and not BC Bayonet type. (However, please note that the rewire service and spares for older pre 2000 products may still use a BC Bayonet type. Check individual details)
A local supermarket ,hardware, DIY store or online retailer should be able to readily supply the suggested bulbs, the colour of the light produced by the bulb maybe expressed as a number , typically <3000K is warm white ,4000K is Cool White and 6500K is equivalent to daylight.
Lamps purchased in the UK or Europe require either an E27 (or for the smaller products)
an E14 bulb. The label inside the shade indicates the type and maximum wattage.
As a side note, for our sprung desk lamps, weight is important. As bulb manufacturers don't always specify the weight of bulbs on their packaging, we suggest a pragmatic approach: take the non-functioning bulb into your local supermarket or hardware store and weigh the bulb you are planning to buy against your existing bulb.
All bulbs supplied with a product are designed to be the correct weight to allow your product to balance properly.
Our wall and pendant lights are not so sensitive to weight. Most LED bulbs will be suitable. For wall lights choose a smaller style bulb such as a golf ball to ensure it doesn't protrude from the shade.
