Can't wait to try it! I really didn't want to lose this color hue bulb, so this is a great way to extend the life of these bulbs

fingers crossed for you !!

Vincent Monteil -

Is there any other model that fits better into the Philips Hue? I broke one and want to fix it but I see on your pictures that the Ikea bulb doesn’t fit perfectly.

maybe we can find another model that fits into the Hue base…

in any case I want to thank you for the guide! Good idea to repair Hue bulbs
