I checked it at the bulb holder, the psu at 12v is at 2 amps
If I lower the voltage the ampage drops too....

I did see those Teal, reluctant to spending and not knowing
if it will work, the one I have now came from China  :lol:

Well, I got a PC psu, 200w and it still will not power the 16w  bulb, it must be the temp switch not handling it  :(
On the upside, its now powering 2 rain gauge heaters (home made), 2 fans in  my shield and a 12v in the Davis shield
where as before the fans and the bucket heater was on separate psu' :)
