I used it in anger today and what a difference it made compared to small LED torches.

Mine only has the B&Q bulb at the moment, but even not colour corrected showed up everything I needed. Now to order the correct bulb.

At last I could leave the halogens at home.

No pics I'm afraid as I was at a main dealers and was politly asked not to use my camera.

On the Svenlight website, there's an option for 35w and 50w. I know its wattage, but what difference does it make? Lol I'm thick =[
Would the 50w work better?

Oh, and muchas gracias amigo, awesome thread

It really is easy. It's about as complicated as wiring a plug. They teach 8 year olds to do this kind of stuff in schools.

enough to get a little fan in there so amiller wont have a leg to stand on?

fantastic work mate, can you PM me where you got the light from?
I've added more pics which should show you the space - still got more to add. There's room for a litte fan but not really req'd.

Jordan, why do you want a fan? It don't matter if the sun gun has one but for nearly 10% of the price grant has made a cracker! I would never in a million years have bought a sun gun, especially given the price. But this I'd buy/make?
I think the fan is just to **** Amiller off! ;-)

I've decided to use a bulb with identical characteristics as the SunGun - I assume it's so expensive because they spent so much time testing different bulbs. I'm pretty sure a pack of MR16 bulbs from poundland are fine to be honest but I originally set out to make something to match the SunGun. I wasn't sure if it was possible but I think this beats it to be honest. If 3M start making one with external power options I'd buy it (if it was about £80 - £100).

The SunGun bulb is 35w.
