Frequently Asked Questions

What does mAh mean?

The capacity of power banks are commonly measured in milliampere hours (mAh). As a general rule, the bigger the number, the more energy charge the powerbank can store and the longer it will work before needing to be recharged.

What are power stations?

Ideal for use in and around your home or to run electronics while you're out and about, power stations provide power for your off-grid activities.

They often feature multiple output options, such as USB and high-capacity 12V connectivity.

What are Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) used for?

Uninterruptable Power Supplies (UPS) provide emergency backup power when the main power source fails. This makes it ideal for protecting hardware such as computers to prevent a loss of data.

How long do LED lights last?

The average lifespan of an LED is up to 50,000 hours - 50 times longer than a traditional incandescent lightbulb.

What do I need for smart lighting?

Smart lights connect wirelessly via WiFi or Bluetooth. Some require a separate hub, while others can be controlled via an app on your smartphone.

Which bulb fitting do I need?

When replacing a bulb, it's important to know what type of fitting you need for the replacement.

E14 / E27

Also known as Edison caps, they resemble a screw shape with the number referring to the diameter of the fitting.

B22

Bayonet bulbs use a twist and lock motion to install. Unlike the Edison caps, they instead feature two prongs on either side.

GU10

These are commonly used for spotlights in kitchens or bathrooms. They connect via two pins on the base of the bulb.
