well made good value, wanted a pull switch, difficult to change bulb
on 19 December 2013
This is very well made and good value.
I also want something like this, but with a cord pull switch, which it may be possible to fit.
The shroud makes it difficult to change the bulb, but it would anyway be best to use an LED bulb, as these are very much cooler, use much less electricity and hardly ever need changing. A rubber suction cup is provided to help with installing and removing bulbs.
The cable entry is from the back, so if you want a side entry, it is necessary to make a hole or slot for the cable, or mount it on a plinth with a side entry.
There is a similar less expensive alternative, but without the shroud, but it doesn't look as good.
The same thing can be bought with a 3W MiniSun LED bulb already fitted, but it is cheaper to buy the light and bulb separately. You can then choose the type of bulb you want, i.e. spot, wide angle or ball and warm or daylight white.
