Hi I am looking for a gadget to measure the output of a LED Flood light as it states 30W

steveastrouk (author)  rashaj881 month ago

That will be 30W electrical input, not 30W output.

Nice demo !

steve, i have sent you a message. it is time sensitive. thank you!

Just saw you moved. Welcome to the USA! We're in the same state, I'm in the SouthEast portion. What a small world.

Thanks. Still settling in of course, and LizzyastroUK isn't here yet, she's packing stuff up back home and keeping an eye on my mother. I miss my wife !

So you're near Philly or what ?


I must say, that was a really big move for you and your family. And I am sure LizzyastroUk misses you too.

As for my locale, I am about 30 miles west of Philly in a little town named Phoenixville. If you watch the original Blob with Sreve McQueen, that's the place. The Theater is still here and in daily use. Only about 2 - 2.5 hours from you, depending on which route you take.

If you ever get out to State College, be sure to look us up. We must be about equidistant from Harrisburg - we ran down there to look at the huge Costco there last weekend, and the boys have developed a taste for Arby's restaurants - there aren't any out in State College.

I've not been involved in power electronics much, but that agrees with what I remember too

Hey, I noticed your comment on the question "What kind of wood makes the best kind of bow?" You seem to know a thing or two about bows. Perhaps you could help me with this nutshell... Any advice, or warnings you have for me are welcome. Here's the link: http://www.instructables.com/answers/Archery-question-What-are-the-proscons-to-having/

Of course.....

Kiteman posted the original picture in a reply to me yesterday.

He is Professor Branestawm - a character in a series of children's stories I read when I was younger too.
