Yes, my error: I didn't notice that from the account page one can navigate to the Community and Blog--I guess my specs need a clean :o. I was expecting a top navigation bar, as the PP and...5 Replies332 Views

Apparently quite successful, but the queues for water top-ups were something like an hour, from what I've read. Shows the importance of having adequate support infrastructure in place. Not dissimilar...4 Replies859 Views
The existing bulbs are HALOGENS (12v), not incandescents. Some of the listings online promote them for desk lamps, but the way these lamps work (hi/lo) might not be suitable for these type of LEDs. I...39 Replies2,104 Views
An update on my G4 LED saga:
The bulbs clearly did not live up to their advertised description.

Thanks, woz, for all of your suggestions.
WRT the G4, yes, the dining fixture is 12v (purchased at IKEA 10 years ago). I will check out your link (the capsules would just fit in the enclosure)....39 Replies2,104 Views

I made the original post to stimulate discussion and clarify my thinking on this issue--not as straightforward as one would expect, given the hype. My conclusions:

Yes, a problem with a number of Energylinx/PP switches. Weirdly, the two emails I received yesterday were roughly 10 months after my switch to PP.
