4.0 out of 5 stars Transformer not up to the job, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 20x Multicoloured Festoon lights - E27 - indoor/outdoor - 82134M
Really nice lights with good quality cable, much better to look at than the ice white icicles people seem to be obsessed with nowadays. After about 100 hours operation (10 hours a day ) the transformer gave up. When I looked more closely the transformer does not seem to be anywhere near the quality of the rest of the lights and cable and I suspect its meagre 450 ma rating only just (if at all) meets the demand. As this was over the festive season and I did not have any faith in a direct replacement transformer from the suppliers so I went to Maplin and bought a 750ma 24 volt supply and 2pin DIN socket. The original transformer has a built in 2 pin DIN socket which is extremely rare and difficult to source so I snipped the multipurpose socket off the end of the Maplin transformer and replaced this by soldering my own 2 pin DIN ready for connection back up to the lights. Lights still working fine after a further 100 hours operation, so touch wood so far so good. Shame about the transformer though.
