Step 1: You Will Need:
A power strip -- be sure to get one that has enough space between the outlets.
8 "Natural" or "Daylight" light bulbs - 100 watt
4 dual sockets for light bulbs (two bulbs screw into this to go into one socket)
4 socket-to-plug adapters
Step 2: Assemble.
Step 3: Turn On!!!
Step 4: Important Notes.
2. These get HOT!! If you have pets or kids be very careful not to let them get anywhere near it.
3. Keep away from curtains and walls.
Addendum: With the super bright compact florescent bulbs out now, you can bump each one up to a 250-watt equivalent with much less of a power draw. Heat is also much less of a factor. However, this type takes some time to warm up to full brightness.
Step 5: Additional Notes:
I have two of these. One I have hooked up to an appliance timer. It is set to my wake-up time. Believe me, there is nothing that will wake you up quicker than being blinded by 800 watts of brightness in one second! It's a bright way to start the day and I usually wake up laughing because it's kind of ridiculous. Or else because it reminds me of Boot Camp...
