chris dont listen to them, they will ruin your life financially. you talk to these guys too long, especially fred, and you will end up buying endless amounts of modifications and trying to keep up with what they say to buy.
just warning you like. these pikeys will sell you ANYTHING
Afternoon mofo's, finally installed all my energy saving light tubes and fixings at the shop this morning, totally fubar'd! Suppose to save me 70% electric in the long run, this better work! lol
Batteries in my 10yr old maglight was drained also, so taking it apart revealed leaking battery acid, which means time to invest in a new one! Gutted, it was a handy weapo.... I mean light to have around!
My mother's birthday today also, so having dinner later on, Happy Birthday Mum!
Jojo what bulbs have you got? Are they replacements for normal fluorescent tubes? I need something for my garage and was researching LED replacements which will give me a bit more light too as it's not very well lit in my garage.
Afternoon boys happy birthday jojo's mom lol, if your after better lighting Neil go for high frequency fittings about £20-£30 with colour 870 tubes there called daylight tubes they give off a very bright whitish light, I fit them for the old dears round where I work so they can do there knitting and crosswords so you would fit in quite well with those lol
Yep you can just change the tubes if you want I have one in my kitchen it's a 5ft tube my fitting is a standard fitting with a starter, it's not a high frequency fitting still works though. The high frequency ones use a bit less energy but nothing to shout about and LED fittings are bright but not as bright as these tubes and they cost the earth, there also faults with them overheating and cutting out. The tubes i use are actually called ACTIVA 172's not 870's there about £6.75 per tube and make my kitchen look like operating theatre how bright they are but it's the fact that there such a white daylight effect rather than the yellow tone normal tubes give off.
You don't need to change anything Neil just swap the tubes straight over, if they have starters the little round things on the side then there normal fittings if they don't have starters there high frequency that's the difference, when I fit these tubes I replace the starters at the same time if they have them, just preventative maintenance that's all.
Mine also came in the post today! Can't wait
