"At 25p 'in store' , then why are you asking us? Just go and try it and see how long it will stay flashing for. "

Re: Can you 'flash' a 12v halogen bulb?

but wouldn't an LED version of the G4 be better?

Yes, looked at high output LEDs in general (not limited to G4 style -that's just the halogens I've got)

High intensity LED: ~£10
G4 halogen from Tesco: 25p

Re: Wood burner

I love our 'Morso' wood burner back home. Heats up the room nicely, and better to watch than the TV. Freezing fog /sleet/snow outside, sat in the armchair watching the logs burn with a glass of something medicinal.
Lovely!
