    jia lat... 1 shot so many post from me... anyway here goes...

    according to my dad who bought it for me, they do not have the facilities to test the light bulb, and they made a mistake, giving him 2 bulbs of different colors, now i have 1 white & 1 yellow light. so for those who are making a purchase, please note the model number...

    6800K EX-D is the white color 1
    2900K EX-W is the yellow color 1.

    the model number can be read on the top of the box.

    erm, a ruler will be good enough

    May be u can check with the shop and see if can get better price for mass order?

    since so many CSer have bought the tent, i am sure they will need some sort of lights too

    wah..thanks

    that's huge, 25cm long!!

    i think most important is the width of the base, i scare too big cannot screw in. can help me to measure the diameter of the base?

    the 20W i am using now has a diameter of 5cm at the base, length only14cm, yours is twice as long, hopefully the base is not too big.

    anyway, the socket portion is about 2.5cm diameter, is it the same for yours?

    the socket base that i bought, its about 25mm diameter, depth of the base is 20mm estimate...

    anyway, u can pm me where you stay, i just pass you the socket u test with your existing bulb, or u wan can bring the bulb over u test see can anot, cos bigger = heavier, wonder your stand can tahan anot...

    guys!!! giving you guys a heads up now!!!

    do not buy the tashi 1, they have a smaller unit, KES Light Capsule Super, also 65W comparable to 325W lights, and its 9000k color...

    its brighter than the Tashi 1... might be due to the kelvin...

    and damn... i went there with the wire i made, they dun let me test, i came back with a Tashi yellow AGAIN!!! tomorrow morning going down again... they do not have the white tashi lights anymore, cos they said the supposedly white light is actually the last piece.

    I thought the boxes got all the info....E27 base and etc....

    Just go to Ikea and find the holders and stands and etc..lor. These bulbs got built in ballasts, usually E-ballasts since it's so light. E27 is european, Ikea is swedish so should have. Quite standard.

    Just remember to get the COOL daylight.... don't get warm. Don't try to remember any model numbers, cannot make it man.
