Any Australians bought 55W GE 9325k CF?


Hi,

Just wondering if there were any fellow Aussies out there that have bought these tubes?

If so, did you buy them here or from overseas? If overseas, please can you let me know which retailer?

I've found one store in the US but I need to spend >US$500 for them to ship outside the US!

Thanks in advance.

Chris

Hi,

You should be able to get them here if you order them. I know of a few electrical whole salers that get in GE bulbs. See if you can order them in through a place like Ideal Electrical or Rexel. You will have to give them all the details on the light like model number and that.

If you care to look or try, Hitachi plant bulb is also pink in colour like the GE bulb (if I'm right about the colour)

Yes, I've heard back and he used www.lightbulbsdirect.com. This is another site I've since found and had quotes from for postage.
