Megaman Energy Saving Bulbs Rated as Best Buy in November Which? Report

20% of the cost of most domestic electricity bills is from lighting. Although energy-saving light bulbs are more expensive to buy than ordinary bulbs they can last up to 15 times longer, depending on the type of the bulb you buy. Changing saves energy and thus money.

The November 2009 ©Which? report on Megaman® GSU111d 11w Dimmerable® (fully dimmable with standard dimmers) had this to say:

“Test score 75%. Megaman® GSU111d Dimmerable® Warm White 11W.

Pros. One of the best bulbs for starting up, this one produces a good amount of light quickly and light output meets the manufacturer’s claim. It lasts well, too – we test bulbs for up to 8,000 hours, and every one of the Megaman® bulbs lasted the duration. It handles frequent switching on and off well and can be used with dimmer switches.”

With many traditional light bulbs disappearing from the shops for good, now is the time to change to more energy-efficient lamps & bulbs.

In September the phase out of traditional bulbs started with 100w clear and most pearl/frosted wattages being discontinued, all others will go over the next few years.

The humble light bulb is dead….. to be replaced by more efficient lighting such as compact fluorescent lamps — known as CFLs, or energy-saving light bulbs.

The light output of older compact fluorescent lamps reduces significantly with age. Now is a good time to replace your old energy saving bulbs as well as replacing any traditional style bulbs. GW supplies has a wide range of energy saving bulbs and because they can buy in bulk they can offer excellent prices.

Access Discounts Introduces DIY Garden Lighting Equipment

AccessDiscounts.com – a leading supplier of grow lights, residential lighting and commercial lighting, is pleased to announce savings on its entire selection of lighting systems and supplies. In addition to offering a full range of lighting products for commercial and residential applications, www.accessdiscounts.com boasts a comprehensive selection of grow light systems, supplies and accessories for professional and amateur growers and gardeners alike.

Do-It-Yourself gardening is in the midst of unprecedented growth. Sparked by growing concerns over the effects of agro-chemicals on both food safety and the environment, consumers are increasingly turning to at-home cultivation of produce. According to the National Gardening Society, the number of households utilizing all-natural gardening methods has increased by 140% over the last five years.

Long familiar to gardeners in cold climates or with limited outdoor space, indoor growing offers a number of advantages: it enables year-round cultivation and a diversity of specimens unattainable through conventional outdoor growing. Grow lighting is also invaluable as a supplement to natural light, providing a solution for gardeners looking to sustain produce, plants and flowers through winter seasons.

Thanks to innovations in energy-efficient lighting, along with advances in fertilization and growing techniques, successful indoor growing is easier, more economical and more environment-friendly than ever.

Introduced within the last few years, LED lightbulbs represent the latest in commercial and residential lighting technology. Once used exclusively in electronics, LEDs (light-emitting diodes) are now used to power lightbulbs which offer unmatched energy- and cost-efficiency compared with conventional lighting systems. LED systems are up to 33 times more efficient than fluorescent and last up to fifty times longer; they operate at much lower temperatures, dramatically reducing risk of fire or burning. And since these lightbulbs are non-toxic, they are environmentally safe.

Accessdiscounts.com is proud to be a leading supplier of LED grow light systems, offering “simply the best-priced and highest quality grow systems in the industry,” according to Christina Roush, spokesperson for Access Discounts. As with all of Accessdiscounts.com’s lighting systems, they are 100% USA-made and backed by a 30-day money back guarantee.

About Access Discounts
AccessDiscounts.com provides a wide selection of grow lights, home lighting and commercial lighting of the highest quality. Leveraging the close relationships developed with top lighting manufacturers, Access Discounts is able to provide the very best in lighting solutions at affordable prices.

Two-Hour Delivery Time Slot Avoids Need To Waste A Whole Day Waiting In

The customer comes first! The Co-operative Electrical gives its buyers the chance to choose which day they would like their appliance to be delivered on. This completely removes the hassle of waiting around for “approximate delivery days”.

This allows customers to work around their appointed delivery date, and helps make The Co-operative Electrical’s whole delivery service more efficient – because if a customer is expecting a delivery, staff don’t need to spend time confirming dates and times.

And The Co-operative Electrical even saves its customers’ time and energy once their delivery has arrived, as the delivery staff place the item into whichever room it is required, so that it is ready to be connected.

Then, to complete the job, they’ll even ‘do the green bit’ by taking away and recycling the customer’s packaging.

The Co-operative Electrical succeeds in delivering 98% of all orders within just two days of them being placed. Better still, this enhanced service is completely free. But it is now even better…

It’s a real bind having to wait in at home – even taking valuable time off work – to be there to take a delivery of say a new television or washing machine.

It works like this: a customer goes online to http://www.coopelectricalshop.co.uk, and chooses a product showing the ‘FREE Rapid Delivery’ icon. All the major kitchen appliances listed with Free Rapid Delivery are available from stock, so the customer chooses their delivery date and is then notified by either text message and/or email of the scheduled two-hour ‘window’ for their delivery. The email and text are usually sent by the time the customer gets home from work on the day before their scheduled delivery, giving them time to organise themselves and make any necessary arrangements.

High Street Retailer Award for GAME.co.uk

The GAME star continues to shine brightly following the MCV 2009 Excellence Awards which took place on April 23rd at The Brewery in London. There were five retail awards in total, two of which went to GAME: High Street Retailer of the Year and Store Manager of the Year. The latter was jointly awarded to Mike Barnes and Pearl Robinson who captain the Oxford Street store.

Mike and Pearl were up against some fierce competition in the Store Manager of the Year category with Rupert Banning-Lover (HMV), Richard Pascoe (Chips), Martin Tuckwood (Asda) and Gary Noakes (Gameplayer) also vying for the top prize.

Mike who, along with co-manager Pearl, was struck speechless on the night when presented with the award said: “We were gobsmacked to have won. Being recognised by GAME is one thing, being recognised by an esteemed panel of industry experts is quite another. It was a very humbling experience.”

Gamestation also part of GAME Group plc, walked away with the coveted Star Store Award for their Birmingam’s New Street store which excels at offering a unique customer experience while cementing their reputation as a specialist retailer.

Described by MCV editor-in-chief, Michael French as ‘hard to win’, the MCV awards are among the most highly sought after awards in the industry.

Terry Scicluna, Chief Operating Officer of GAME Group said: “I am delighted that all the hard work we have put in over the past few years has been recognised. This is particularly gratifying given the present economic downturn and the additional pressure this has inevitably placed on GAME Group as a whole. It’s a testament to the dedication and sheer hard work of everyone at GAME and Gamestation that we won three of a possible five MCV awards.”

Attended by around 600 of the industry’s most influential names, the MCV Awards represent the biggest night in the gaming industry’s calendar, acknowledging and celebrating the industry’s finest across the following four categories: Retail; PR and Marketing; People and Industry; and a Special Recognition Award. Fifteen awards were up for grabs in total, plus two special awards. The Store Manager of the Year Award was one of the new awards introduced for the 2009 event.

Of course, it was the awards after party, also held at The Brewery in the heart of London, where the real fun kicked off. The party saw some of the industry’s heavyweights dancing and celebrating (perhaps even commiserating) until well into the small hours.

The growing economic crisis has put a strain on society and the worst is yet to come. In today’s increasingly violent times, every citizen is responsible for ensuring their own personal safety and security. Statistics have always shown that people who fight back during a life-threatening situation substantially increase their chances of escaping and avoiding harm to themselves or loved ones.

The Carphone Warehouse Launches Phone Trade-In Service

The Carphone Warehouse has announced the launch of its exclusive ‘Trade-In Calculator’ service which allows customers to exchange their old mobile phones for cash when either upgrading to a new handset, buying a new pay as you go handset, or taking out a new contract.

For the first time, customers will be able to instantly find out the true value of their old mobile phones and receive cash in-store at one of over 800 stores nationwide. The model of the old mobile is simply inputted into the ‘Trade-In Calculator’ operated by sales advisors, which instantly generates an exchangeable figure of up to £200, dependent on the model of the phone. This amount can then be directly redeemed by customers, or offset against the cost of the upgraded handset and contract. The mobile phone trade in service is also available online through The Carphone Warehouse site.

Being the first major high street retailer to offer such a scheme, The Carphone Warehouse can reveal that two million people in the UK are due a mobile phone upgrade, but are yet to take full advantage of receiving a new phone. Consequently, an astonishing £10,000,000 of potential cash is going unclaimed by customers – money that could make a noticeable difference to the bank balance amidst the current financial climate.

Utilising the ‘Trade-In Calculator’ takes the guesswork out of revealing how much an old handset could be worth. The service works by checking the value of every handset to make sure customers get as much as possible for their old phone. For instance, a high-end handset such as the Nokia Arte would equate to a huge £200 cashback, while more popular handsets from last year such as the Nokia N95 or Sony Ericsson K850i would still generate customers a valuable £115 and £45 respectively.

Andrew Harrison, UK CEO at The Carphone Warehouse said; “Customers are increasingly looking for the best deal when upgrading their mobile phone contract. It’s easy to forget the value of your old phone and many end up in drawers gathering dust. Our ‘Trade-In Calculator’ takes the guesswork out of the true value when trade in your old phone and gives an instant cash ‘thank you’ to loyal and new customers.”

The Carphone Warehouse is the largest independent mobile phone retailer in the UK, with over 820 stores nationwide.

“As the seasons change, growers may need to augment their lighting sources, and in most of the U.S., indoor growers will find a need to increase lighting,” stated Christina Roush, spokesperson for Access Discounts. “Professional and recreational home growers can take advantage of our full range of grow lights and grow light systems to effectively lengthen their indoor growing season, even during the most extreme outdoor conditions.”

Hydroponic gardening has grown in popularity due to its effectiveness in producing healthy quantities of fruits, flowers and vegetation. Plants grown hydroponically receive all of their nutrients from a water-based solution thereby eliminating the risk of soil borne parasites and illnesses. Indoor growing also eliminates the need for cultivation and weeding, and mitigates the effects of insects and rodents.

AccessDiscounts.com offers a wide range of grow light types, each with its specific characteristics, that are available through its online store. High pressure sodium (HPS) and metal halide (MH) lamps provide the high intensity discharge (HID) lamps needed for the vegetative stage of plant growth. Lamps can be purchased by spectrum color, or as full-spectrum solutions and growing systems. Since light, climate and humidity all are factors in successful hydroponic plant growth, AccessDiscounts.com provides options for both commercial growers and the home grower.

Buying power and strong supplier relationships allow AccessDiscounts.com to obtain significant savings, which are passed on to customers. Manufactured in the USA, all residential, commercial and grow lights sold here are precision engineered to meet ETL, UL and CUL standards.

Dog Pedometer – a gadget that aims to ensure dogs get enough exercise in order to fight the growing rates of diabetes in pets

Lloydspharmacy has introduced a new range of products, including the Dog Pedometer, in time for Christmas. Lloydspharmacy has released a new range of pet products with particular focus on the Dog Pedometer – a gadget that aims to ensure dogs get enough exercise in order to fight the growing rates of diabetes in pets. With the RSPCA estimating that as many as half of UK dogs are now overweight* and experts agreeing that one in 500 dogs will suffer from diabetes**, an obesity related illness, dog owners are being urged to consider their pet’s health this Christmas.

Healthcare specialists Lloydspharmacy have launched a new range of Christmas gifts for pets so that owners can give their favourite ‘family member’ something fun, stylish and good for them.

With recent research showing that 30% of dogs in the UK are overweight*** there is a very real chance that many pets could be in serious need of some more exercise. Furthermore, it is estimated that one in 500 dogs will develop diabetes during their lifetime – a serious medical condition affecting blood sugar levels, which are best controlled in animals by exercise along with diet and blood glucose monitoring.

All the evidence points to the fact that dogs need the right amount of exercise to stay healthy, yet many owners are blissfully unaware of how much exercise their pooches are actually getting – so they have no way of knowing if they are getting enough.

For this Christmas, Lloydspharmacy has launched a new Dog Pedometer, so that dog owners can give their beloved pet a gift that will benefit them well beyond the usual festive treats and bones, and give them the healthiest and happiest start to the New Year. With the capacity to count up to 99,999 steps and offering two different modes to fit smaller and larger animals, the Dog Pedometer will help keep track of a pet’s exercising so that owners can plan and monitor its improvement over time.

A lightweight and compact device, the electronic Dog Pedometer is designed in white and black in the shape of a canine’s face, so it will look charming on every four-legged friend. Sliding comfortably onto a collar, its one touch digital display provides instant feedback on the dog’s activity.

Other gifts in the Lloydspharmacy Christmas pet gift range include a black dog collar with silver paw motifs, which is available in two sizes and made from 100% polyurethane, and a cat collar, that comes in gold and silver, with diamante studs and a bell.

Diabetes is a serious condition, which led Lloydspharmacy to introduce free diabetes tests through their pharmacies.

About Lloydspharmacy:
Lloydspharmacy is the trading name of Lloyds Pharmacy Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Celesion AG based in Stuttgart. Lloydspharmacy has more than 1700 pharmacies across the UK and employs more than 16,000 members of staff. Lloydspharmacy offers free type 2 diabetes screening tests and free blood pressure tests.

Displaysense discover illegal stowaway, as a standard product return ends in a hair raising experience

Displaysense the UK’s leading supplier of retail displays usually does not have to worry about illegal stowaways, but got quite a shock at the beginning of August as one of their products was inadvertently returned with an unexpected traveller on board.

The company which sells a wide range of retail display products from literature holders to display cases deal with returns on a daily basis and it was business as usual until one customer returned more than just their undesired product.

The customer, a clothes shop owner who lives in Lille, France, returned a mannequin on a next day courier service after purchasing the wrong gender of display and unbeknown to him, accidentally returned his pet cat as well.

It is believed that the cat must have been quite taken by the packaging used for the mannequin, climbed inside the box and fell asleep. The owner didn’t realise this when he re-sealed the box and the cat then endured a 200 mile journey and arrived at theDisplaysense head office destination in Hertfordshire, England.

Upon opening the box, the warehouse staff got quite a shock as a cat burst out of the box and hid behind some of the companies flat pack glass display cabinets.

Luckily the cat was eventually coaxed out and inspected for any injuries. Stuart Parnis the Warehouse manager at Displaysense described the young cat as being a little shaken by the experience but seemed to be enjoying all the attention and products around the warehouse, with lots of boxes and display cabinets to climb in and investigate. It is believed that the cat simply climbed inside the mannequin box as its owner repackaged the unwanted retail display.

A blue collar was found around the cats neck and it turns out she was affectionately named “etoile” which is the French for “Star”, accompanied by a return address clearly written on her collar. After Star had calmed down and eaten some food, the customer was contacted and made arrangements for the cat to be collected.

Stuart Parnis commented “It is true what they say, cats really must have 9 lives, but at least Displaysense were around to give its next life the purrrr-fect start.”

Displaysense has a wealth of experience in design and manufacturing and has been able to develop an ever growing standard range of over 1500 displays.
