I have an outdoor light, just a normal household bulb and not one of those
super bright halogen things. I want to run a 2nd light from the first one so
that the 2 lights come on when switched on. I intend to take the power
source from the existing light socket and run a cable to the second one.
What type of cable / rating to I need to use? Both bulbs will be those low
watt long life power saving type.
I was thinking of taking the power not from the light switch but from the
original light socket.
The cable will run from the existing `light socket` which is outdoor but
under cover and the extension will run along the outside of the house about
10 feet above ground level, but attached to the wall of the house.
Link to picture showing the original light fitting.
If the light in the photo only controlled by a switch and nothing else then
you need some 1.0mm twin and and earth cable then.
Thanks Adam, yes only a normal switch. Thanks for the link but as I only
need a 6 metres I might try elsewhere for a smaller quanity.
