Questions & Answers for Philips Hue Connected Bulb - Single Pack
25 Questions from the Community
I think these have been out for a year or more now. Has anyone got any insight in to how long the bulbs last. I like the idea, the reviews are fantastic and I think I would love to disco up my flat. But at £50 per bulb it's quite an expensive option, and I'd like to know I wasn't replacing the bulbs every year. Every 10 years might be OK :)

We've had them for way over a year with no issues. As far as I remember they are supposed to last up to 15 years.

No. Not in Australia as far as I know. Adapters are available, however they a difficult to find locally also. You can buy them internationally from that well known internet auction site and that is how I connected some of my bulbs,

What's the voltage rating on the Australian version? The store page says 110v but then they'd need a transformer to work here. Are they 220-240v?Answer
Noticed likewise on the Apple Australia website last week so I decided to visit the physical Apple store. Glad to say they were 240V and the Apple bloke in the store promised he'd get the Voltage shown in the Australian Apple website updated. They're in and running and after changing the dimmer switch they now work brilliantly.
I had the same problem before placing my order, I tried calling the Apple's call center and all of them have no idea about it, until one guy told me he's almost 100% sure that I'll get the right lights!!!!! I took my chance and placed the order and ...... The lights that I received were all 240V suitable for the UK market and I comfortably can tell you Apple web site is WRONG, and they'd simply copied the US site..
If you really need them, go ahead and order them and you'll get the right voltage " At least that what I got :)
