Just a quick question to get some expert opinions, installing some lights in my garage, surface mounting cables in 20mm conduit, what cabling is best to run within the conduit, ie 1.5mm twin and earth or can I use individual 1.5mm brown/blue/earth conduit cabling or a mixture of both depending on what I need?

Single cores are better in conduit as they are easier to pull in and there is no issue with bending radius.. If you use twin and earth the bending radius at Boxes and Manufactured Bends is a bit tight if your using Inspection Elbows i thing it is to tight.

Hi.

1.5 for lighting is fine, on a max of 10A MCB. Although 6A for your requirements is more than enough.
