How can I be sure that I have a G24d-2 type light fitting?
To ensure you buy the correct light bulb, you can:
- Check for the code 'G24d-2' or 'G24D-2' on the base of your existing light bulb, light fitting, or old light bulb box. Another hint is that the old lights typically used 18W of power.
- Check that the position of the two metal pins (blue) and two notches (red) match the image below:

Excellent outdoor light with long life and low power consumption. Ideal for fittings on walls, allowing light to be directed away, just by rotating the reflector.
Light bulbs are great! And delivered quickly also.
Much better and brighter than the fluorescent version but note that the globe is directional. That means for me and the original fitting I hae, I get kind of half the available light.
Hi Kevin, As mentioned in our email exchange, the light can be rotated up to 90˚ so you can direct the light output in the right direction.

The light fitting was exactly as per the description and fit my wall light perfectly.
One unexpected plus was the packaging contained no plastic (well maybe apart from the tape sealing the box). The filler inside the box some kind of cardboard that was cut in such a way it could be pulled apart to create a cushioned wrap for the lamps. Great to see!
Bought these for external garage entry for Strata complex, as sick of changing standard bulbs (12 garages). They are standing up well at this stage But they only have one illuminated face which because of the pin configuration is shining out not down, having a opaque light cover helps diffuse the light but would be brighter in proper downward direction. Having said this if These last a lot longer than standard mini fluorescent I will buy again.
Fast delivery service and good package.
The bulb had one side blacked out. There was no indication that this was the case in the purchase information. It was not what I had hoped for.
Hi Chris, Sorry to read - it's not our intention to leave this unclear. We describe how the light can rotate to point the light as needed, provide the beam angle in our specs table and the photos show where the light diffuser is. If you need to return them or we can help in another way, let us know.
