    Can somebody tel me where I can buy a replacement LED night light for a 1,2m SUN SUN light unit in Pretoria or Joburg. It looks like a 12v downlight but is 220v and is smaller than the 12v ones.

    I checed inside the unit and onley the T5 and MH has balasts and nothing for the LED so I took it to Lightning Wherehouse and the put it in the 12v plug and it came on very very dimed so they said it must be 220v. They advised me to replace them both with normal sized LED down lights in 220v.

    That will be great!
    The lens diameter is 35mm and it looks like its dimable. When the switch on the unit is off the the LED is dimed and when its on then the LED is full blast.
    What els do you need?
