View Full Version : Emergency lighting refurb??
September 8th, 2008, 22:15 PDT
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 (http://www.niteize.com/productdetail.php?category_id=28&product_id=127) (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 (http://www.theledlight.com/led_flashlightbulbs.html)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 (http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/) 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
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.
