The lexicon of light bulbs

Post by Butterfield on Thu Dec 13, 2018 1:42 pm

Why are there so many different types and sizes of light bulb connecting bits? Fat "bayonet", thin "bayonet". Fat screwy ones, thin screwy ones. Ones with just pins etc. etc. I can never remember which to buy as each of my lights is different.

Why has a law never been brought in for all lights and light bulbs to be the same? Is it just us or do other countries suffer from this too?!

I was in Poundland the other day, buying a lightbulb, and every single box had been opened, presumably by prospective customers checking that they had the kind of mounting that they wanted. sad yes
