spare bubble light bulbs
« on: December 27, 2006, 01:38:47 pm »
i got myself 3 sets of bubble lights earlier this year 1980`s c7 bulbs, have been looking to stock up with spares and i cant find any sites at the moment? this was a problem my mum had back in the late 70`s when we could not get bulbs for the kingston chrstalittes which unfortunately she ditched, i dont want this to happen to me, anyone with any sites that will supply me in the u.k. please post, many thanks and i hope you all had a merry christmas

Those look like modern-day bubblers to me, I know our Wal-Marts sold replacement bubblers, but ours are meant for use on 120V, Are yours designated for 230V?

I think the best idea is to search around google. There's a few specialty shops that carry these bulbs. Our wal-mart here in Arkansas, USA stocked them during the season, but they all have disappeared when I was last there (26 Dec 2006)
