    Another outdoor power thread... seems the time for it!

    As usual – I preface this with the fact that I will be engaging the work of an electrician to do this.. however, I like to get my head around the works beforehand.

    Another Christmas light query

    I have a not so old filament set of lights and as much as it would be easier to bin them and buy some LED they have sentimental value and I'm not sure binning them is terribly "green". The lights state rated at 24V and 18W. I'm not sure if I have the correct power supply but it states 24V 5VA...
