Not seen these mentioned here, so thought I'd share.  Smiley

The lamp in question is the "NITTIO" LED bulb - it looks to be using a light-pipe arrangement as the filament, with a single LED source contained in the cap. It is available in "copper" and "silver" finished bases, and in E14 & E27 fittings (no BC fitting as far as I can tell). Output is only 20 Lumen, so this is for effect rather than illumination...

Looks like it has some potential use in steamy 'mad scientist' / 'industrial' style lamps! Wink

Without a doubt food for thought, appears the diffuser is polycarbonate, so drillable and glueable.

Good spot SS and thanks for the heads up sir!

You need to find help for that. Have you tried asking for guidance at Ikea Anonymous (IA)?  Grin

Dear Ms. Cecily; it may have something to do with the fact there is no IA in existence!  Grin

It's a good little (well, not little. Damn thing's huge) bulb! I grabbed one a couple of weeks back to test and meant to post but forgot!

Ikea only produce ES bulbs, handy because they only produce ES light fittings!

The light is very, very orange, but given its intention to replicate one of those fashionable low-wattage glowy-element type bulbs that's hardly a surprise.

Aha- I invested in one of these before Xmas, and meant to post it up. It does give a nice orange glow, just right for writing by (on a Babbage Keyboard).

Beaten to it...

Rather irritatingly, there is no stock at my nearest only branch - and it seems to be the only one without - and nor is it available via the website. Roll Eyes

Hopefully they will resolve the issue soon, as I have the perfect lamp for a sightly modified one.

 That is an attractive bulb that could have many applications.

The Shadow knows.

In any case, going in search of this light bulb is an excellent excuse to visit the food hall of my nearest IKEA- it's not that I want the cardamon crisp rolls and the lingonberry vinegar. I need them.

They do look very nice… but for some strange reason they are not listed on IKEA's French site, though they are on the Swiss and Belgian sites.  Huh

Thay where out of stock here as well... Cheesy

However, anyone know if this thing is dimmable without annoying flickering?

Is the globe made of glass?
(i hope it is...)

Alas, the globe is plastic, though that does give it more room for modification.

Not dimmable either, but at only 20lm it's hardly bright to begin with.

Thank You!

The reason i ask was because i builded a lamp for my working desk few weeks ago (a bit victorian looking perhaps but not that much visible modifications on it that´s why i did not put the project up here that time, i was not sure if it was interesting enough.) and i want to find a good looking lightbulb that one can look straigt into when working since i only need som background light to see things laying on my desktop.

Hmmm... If it´s all plastic in those parts, i will probably try to dismantle one and see if one can punk it up with some copper rivets and other things.

I hawe a more expensive glass one of those older type with LED filament (as pictured in another post here) it´s not much things one can mod easy on those glass one since some types are argon filled like a regular lightbulb due to cooling issues, so drilling the glass is probably a bad idea on those one i think (i bought som sheep diamond drills some years ago for another project involving drilling stones for a necklace).
only thing with those is that they are way to bright for a naked lightbulb and wery hard to dim the ligt sucessfully.
That´s whay i choosed regular lightbulbs for my older projects, one reason was becas the look, but the main reason was that all my attempts to dim them failed (tecincally it was possible with pulse tecnology, but the where extremly uncomfortable to look at...)

So i want to try this one.

Had a few of the other (COB) type of squirrel-cageish LED bulbs, and agreed, they tend to be far, far to bright to be naked bulbs and their life expectancy has been terrible!

These bulbs aren't strong by any stretch of the imagination, and due to the way they work (hidden LED which is lighting up some plastic piping) they're very unoffensive on the eye. I haven't tried yet, but from a glance it should be easy enough to open the bulb and have some fun, you could probably dim them further if you were to pop in some kind of filter (or use a pen) on the base of the light pipe (provided you can get it out).

As an aside, I grabbed a couple more of these from the local Ikea this evening (only had one to see what it was like, our main light needs three) and the two new ones are a visibly different colour to the one I got before christmas. Have to see if the new ones fade over time.

Look good, but not for a bayonet cap house!

There are converters from Edison to Bayonet sockets.

In Sweden (the origin of IKEA) Bayonet sockets are almost only used in some old low power industrial ligths and old types of carlights.
I guess that´s the reason, but i think they will probably come in other socket types for other countries soon...
if not IKEA i guess some chinese company will pick up the idea sooner or later...

Could be quite useful for simulating vacuum tubes.
