I live in adelaide.

Can anyone steer me to where I can buy replacement LED lamp assemblies. as I wish to rid rid of the 21Watt existing globes, they are just not good enough.

Thanks

Herk,

Try Hella website or Rainbow Power Co. site. Noticed on hella over the weekend, they have lights suitable, and Rainbow have some 9 or 12 LED lights that screw into a ES fitting that has a pull cord on-off switch on the fitting.


hella.com & rpc.com.au

Silicon Chip magazine had an article last month on building LED lamps using a 21 watt base with a circuit board available from Jaycar. Had about 10 or 12 LEDs in it .

Hooroo...

You may also like to have a look at this site to see if there is anything there that suits you.
I bought a pair of these for interior lights for my 80 series, replacing the dull, yellow festoon type globes and they are fantastic.

Col,
I fitted a 9 watt 12 volt fluroescent light next to each of the original 240V/12V lights in my Jayco Jayswan camper trailer. I jumpered off the existing 12V wiring going to the roof lights. The fluro's give much more light for less than 1/2 the power consumption. I bought the lights from Caravan Accesssories in Rockdale, Sydney.

Herk, have a look at stream # 3329.

Subsequently, I have built my own. I'm still probably going to get one of George's units because I like the look of the Luxon unit that you can't source here in Oz.

The light I've built contains 15 x 5mm ultra bright white LEDs arranged in 5 rows of 3 LEDs. The 5 rows are connected in parallel and the 3 LEDs in each row are connected in series, using 180 ohm resistors. The whole kit _Affordable_Storage_Drawers.aspx less than 200 mA and lights up an area 16' x 10' with a very bright pool of light for working (preparing food) immediately below the unit.

Be good, or be quick.
