LED Lamps with an E14, or SES (Small Edison Screw) fitting, commonly found in chandeliers, wall sconces and table lamps they serve a more decorative purpose.Typically these are candle or golf ball shaped and so they are available in a range of shapes and styles.
Long lasting and energy efficient, our E14 LED light bulbs are designed to work in your existing light fittings and replace your incandescent E14s like-for-like. Being a mains voltage bulb there is no requirement for a separate LED driver. In fact, the driver is built into the bulb.

What Does Retrofit Mean?
Retrofit is another way of saying direct replacement. Retrofit bulbs are the easiest way to convert to LED lighting and begin saving money.
Because they work in your existing fittings you don't need to worry about changing anything other than the bulb. Just remove the old bulb and pop the new bulb in. It really is as easy as changing a light bulb!
What Things To Consider Before Ordering
As well as making sure you have the correct base, there are a few other things to consider when buying LED bulbs. One of most important is the wattage. LED bulbs have a much lower wattage than old fashioned bulbs which makes it hard to draw a direct comparison between older bulbs and newer solutions.
The easiest way to make sure you are replacing like-for-like is to look at the equivalent wattage. For example, a 3W LED bulb may have an equivalent wattage of 35W. This means that even though it is only using 3W of electricity, it is generating equivalent to 35W of light.
You may also want to decide whether or not to go dimmable. Dimmable LED bulbs are available, but you will need to upgrade to an LED dimmer switch, otherwise your bulbs may not work.
Finally, look at the colour temperature. This is the perceived warmth or coldness of the light. Warm white is a soft, yellow colour, while cool white is a clear, bright colour. For more information about colour temperature take a look at our colour guide.
