What wattage/volts is the socket rated for?i am going to take a bowl and drill for socket and glue it together with aluminium foil
im from Israel this is socket types here
i meant for power (W) of the bulb
thanks for the quick replay
Nothing is unlimited..it not written
i will check tomorrowOK I'm sorry, from your original post on wild wood I thought you were from Nor-California's central valley, as they grow olives there also.
IIRC screw in CFL bulbs, if they're locally sourced, should be set to use whatever household voltage you've got. Not so sure about the LED A19's, mine come from a shipper in China, though Amazon, and are rated for 110 volts AC. They *might* have a built in auto dual voltage selector, there's a lot of electronic features on these new bulbs, but that's assuming a lot about the circuitry running the LED's.
Can you get CFL floodlights that look similar to this?..
..as it would simplify the installation, you would not need to fabricate a reflector.
It's a cube 5 gallon tank, correct? A 9 to 13 watt fluorescent would work, LED's could be anything from 4 to 10 watts, you're a little more limited with the wattage of screw-in compact fluorescents. If there are any screw in, spiral or PAR reflector CFL below 9 watts, I've not encountered them.i will check tomorrow
but main question is the strength of the lighting (W)(less or more ) regardless to the bulb technology
Yea uses CREE chips ,universal voltage , and 120 degree beam angle so it doesn't need to be very high off the surface ..That's an interesting bulb, it's got a range of color 5500K to 7000K, looks like they're using different color LED chips.
Need to know the beam angle..or you just basically put a flashlight over your tank..generic Chinese eBay bulb 6500K? 4.49$ shipped
