It's only £18 to get it working. Try it with battery only first.
Step 1 - unscrew 8 screws.
Step 2 - cut black wire.
Step 3 - cut red wire.
Step 4 - connect blue wire to black wire.
Step 5 - connect red wire to brown wire.
Step 6 - glue bulb holder in.
Step 7 - put 8 screws back in.
Step 8 - Light it up!

I'm sure once you've done that you'll feel like trying the other bits. You don't have to do it all at once - just add the extra features as you need them.

FYI if it's only running off the battery you couldn't electrocute yourself if you tried!

Seriously if you can wire a plug you can do this.

Don't think you'll be needing one anytime soon. The 3M sun gun is extremely well made and has been tried and tested by many professionals. There is only one originator

Grant just out of curiosity how long would the battery hold up on it's own?

I'm lucky enough to have constant access to a Sungun but I could rattle one together and save me taking an expensive Sungun home.

Apologies if I'm being blind, but I can only find 35w 4700K 36deg bulbs on the Svenlight website. Are these the correct ones?

Thanks for the write up and effort in putting all this together
