I have replaced a 40 watt tungsten spotlight in my hall, with a 3 watt LED (light emitting diode) E27.
The diodes are the "new" brighter type where each has a little yellow-brown square round it (when "cold").
When switched off it glows in the dark - is this a residual current effect caused by the switch and the socket being wired "the wrong way round" (ie the socket is live because the single pole switch is on the neutral not the live wire from the socket) ?
When answering a night-time call of nature, am I getting a night light for free?[/QUOTE[/FONT]
Let us try another one:
Impress me, I too have an old "wire" fusebox.
So what is a "split load" one?

Are there alternatives to NICEIC? If so, what are they?
I would like to ask Martin, considering he is a MSE, if he would like to change his original insert posted at the top of the OP's post, to reflect a broader choice and not miss-guide people into thinking there is only the one option...?

the alternative would be to have the electrical work done or do it yourself and apply for it to be signed off by building control - i think its about £350! but in all fairness you're better getting a registered sparky to do it.. my dads a plumber and my fella a joiner and neither will do anything with electrics! too risky... i think as the original post has stressed!
Can you help this Forumite track some down?
