Easy fit batten light
5 Dec 2014
By Sparks27
, Derbyshire
" Purchased for carport lighting. The light came well packed / protected in its box and although very light in weight the quality of the unit and its fittings appeared to be very good.
Very easy to install and the clever plastic 'hanging' straps on the internal metal gear tray enabled the tray to be suspended freeing up both hands to connect the wiring.
The plastic clips securing the diffuser were a bit loose and fiddly to fit but once in place and fastened the diffuser was clamped tight to the casing.
Once installed the tube light (58w) lit instantly and had no flicker. The clear diffuser gave a good light spread.
Not anticipating any reliabiltiy problems.
Probably one of the easiest light units to fit.
Overall an excellent product.

Good all round fluorescent
6 Aug 2014
By JohnnyDoItAll
, Preston
" Bright, efficient, smart and tough.
Great high frequency electronic fluorescent.
When you can get these at this price why bother buying switch start ones. They look neat as well (provided you don't mind being able to see the tube). I use them even where the IP rating is not required - especially where there is a risk of them getting hit by something as the diffuser is much tougher than the conventional ones. Also they start instantly almost every time.

Why pay more?
17 Oct 2012
By Highlea
, Mid Wales
" I looked at these compared to the Thorn versions. These are excellent lamps, easy to install (it says you need 2 people, but I did it on my own) and good looking.
Just put 2 in my workshop in addition to similar 10 year old lamps and the instant start is impressive. Can't comment yet on reliability.
Come with a couple of wire hooks which I assume are for chain hanging.
About to order some more! "

By chppy55

" The instructions are a little vague since they assume the unit is already assembled and there is no mention of what I presume are hanging clips...but apart from the fiddly diffuser clips it appears to be quite a solid unit.
Worked first time and up within 30 mins.
Will buy some more for the Loft.

Bright lightweight light

" Bought to replace previous similar model which had failed after two years.
Simple to fit and easy to handle.
I hope the electronics last a lot longer as most are guaranteed for 70,000 hours.

" bought two of these for my garden shed.
One worked OK, but the other refused to work.
Investigation found the tube connector wire loose.
Sharpen up on quality control LAP "

Quality Control

" Of the two units purchased, one failed to function initally as one of the wires to tube connection had not been inserted resulting in much wasted time. "
