New Light Bulbs & Tubes (21st July 2015)
REW Electrical Wholesalers on Holloway Road. A little shop just before cinema. Now closed! Went quite far up towards Archway to use a little place called Sparks.
Helpful guy behind the till. I took the dead lights in with me and he was able to identify what was needed. I selected how many Watts, though.
- 5× halogen
- 1× small tube light
- 1× medium tube light
- 1× light bulb
All that cost about £24 which seems about right.
We later found that some lights weren’t working due to each having its own transformer. Our neighbour had the problem – I thought the lights from the same switch would run from the same transformer. But no, each has its own.
Guess that helps the system scale to any number of lights on the same switch. But it multiplies the points of failure by the number of lights!
