    What ho one and ll,

    I have a number of external lights around the house. The ones either side of the front door and garage door are the most useful. They are all E14 / CFL bulbs and are somewhat useless as they take time to run up to full brightness, by which time, I am already in the door.

    So I have two options; the easiest is to replace with E14 LED with a higher lumen count. At least these would have full brightness immediately.

    The other option for more light is to fit a 2D connector and fit the larger LED panel (https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V-Cool-White-LED-2D-Fluorescent-Replacement-Lamp-Down-Dome-Cabin-Caravan-Light-/190694070075 This is not 240v but this kinda thing, if I can find it?)

    However, although searching the web, I cannot find a supplier of the base fitting. Does anyone have a link or know where to buy?

    Toodle pip and thanks

    Searching the web, don't think I can convert these lights as the sizes of the2d light fittings will be extremely tight within the light itself.

    So will go for the LED E14 bulbs.

    My local Homebase had a bin full of E14 base LED bulbs at clearance price last week. Not sure if they were latest tech. I didn't buy because I was looking for dimmable bulbs.
