This feel-good light is flicker-free and radiates less heat than standard bulbs, lasting for around 10,000 hours!
Ideal for suffers of S.A.D our 150W equivalent gives out 2000 lumens (almost a third more than standard bulbs) while using only 30W of power.
The Biobulb is not only a full spectrum light bulb, it saves energy too, and has a Colour Rendering Index of 85 and Correlate Colour Temperature of 6400K (compared to 2700K -3000K produced by a standard bulb).
The light output of this bulb is equivalent to 150W but the heat output is 30W meaning it is suitable for lamp shades compatible with 30W bulbs or higher.

while this may not be the most attractive light, I find it's excellent for me, as I have minor sight problems and the extra brightness and whiteness is well worth the rather harsh colour it gives.
Lasted less than a week!
We received this bulb last Tuesday and fitted it the next day to a wall light above a chair often used for reading. It was very good while it lasted but it has lasted only 5 days. Very disappointed as it was not cheap and is supposed to last 10,000 hours!
Luminous white light
A very blinding white light, that is far too bright and creates a cold office feeling.
Gives off a lovely quality of natural light though it did take some initial adjustment to the Cold-Light-of-Day effect! Have since had to change to these bulbs in every room as the yellow lights looked dingy in comparison. These literally shine a light on everything though and it was quite a surprise to see we`ve been living in a bit of a cesspit. Have knocked off one star as the bulbs are super fragile and a longer neck would enable easier handling.
didn't like it
I found the light made me feel weird, didn't like this at all.
HELP WITH SHADE PLEASE!
I am very happy with this bulb, however am having major problems buying a suitable shade, as on all shades it states not to exceed a certain wattage and I'm not sure what the equivalent for this bulb would be - if anyone else has resolved this problem would be grateful for assistance! The bulb itself is excellent and definitely energising but would look better with an appropriate shade so only 4 instead of 5 stars!
Hello Pimlicosue It's great to hear that you are happy with your purchase! I have spoken to our resident light bulb expert who has advised that while the light output for this bulb is equivalent to 150W, the heat output is 30W. This bulb doesn't get very hot and should be suitable for most household lamp shades that are compatible with bulbs of 30W or higher. I hope this is helpful. Thanks, The Ocado Review Team.
