Emergency lighting refurb??

EAdamsEAdams Solar Expert Posts: 34
I have a 6v wall mount dual lamp emergency light that was donated to me. Actually I have 2. Never been used and they have typical filament bulbs in them. The internal rechargeable battery is 6v. I am wanting to change the bulbs to a LED version to save run time.

Printing on the reflector says: Replace with same type SL#Z-4 3.6Watt 6voltlamp.

Anyone know if there is a LED version made adn who might carry it??

    I don't recognize the bulb part number (not that I remember all the old bulbs)--but I would look for a place like NiteIze for low powered LED conversions (PR based bulbs) that work with 2-6 cell C/D battery lights (I got mine from Target a few years ago for my "MagLights"--last for 10's-100's of hours of useful--if not very bright, light.

    And if want the high powered stuff--there are places like this that have 1-3 watt LED conversions (and places that sell LED power pucks for specialized conversions).

    Not personally recommending either company--but if you are really into flashlights of any kind--head over to the Candle Power Forums for way too much information (Brock brought me over from there to here). Very family friendly place too (like here).

    What Bill said, the other place I buy LED replacement lamps for odd things here at work is from

    http://www.ledtronics.com/

    They seem to make an LED for just about every standard lamp base.

    I would look for an 12V version, that way you can wire it direct to your battery.

    Please post a pic of the base/bulb.

    Battery voltage on the battery in the emergency lighting box (by Sure lite) is 6v.
