I've just purchased 2 lights from the USA to be sent to the UK. Before
ordering I was told that the lights will be compatible with the UK
Now there's a sticker on the light saying: "CAUTION - to reduce risk
of fire use 60Watt type b lamps MAX. only, 120V..."
What are the chances of me burning the house down? I'd really like to
rule this possibility out!
Please help anyone!!
I'm reminded of a shampoo commerical where the wife leans out of the
shower and her hair is covered with loads of soap bubbles, and her
husband says, "Be careful. That shampoo has to last us all the way
through Spain." As if they don't sell shampoo in Europe.
It's probably for Prell Concentrate, since it's concentrated I guess,
and though it is what I might take on a vacation, I don't see any
reason to use it at home. Stupid commercial.
That is why al gore invented the internet. I get nicotine gum from New
Zealand, computer parts from Hong Kong and strange sized metric bolts
from Germany. That is all from my Lazyboy
Send them back. The light bulbs in the UK have a "bi-pin" (push & twist)
base whereas those in the USA are screw-in. They are completely
Buy the lights in the UK this way you know they'll work over there. Same
thing with cars & TV's.
