Q. Will this fit a 25mm deep 2 gang socket box
Yes it will, better with a 35mm deep box as you have more room for the cables.
Q. Can I replace my normal 2 gang socket with this
Yes, it's a standard BS1363 socket but with an LED (light-Emitting Diode) COB (Chip On Board) installed on the front and a circuit board behind with a rechargeable battery.
Q. Do I need to replace any battery's or LED's
No, the components are high quality and will last for many years.
Q. So if I have a power cut, how does the light work
Inside the socket we have a rechargeable battery, so while the mains power is on this battery is charging. Now when the power is removed the LED's then light up as its being supplied by the battery.
Q. Can I clean the front of the socket with the light
Yes, the LED COB is water proof, naturally always be careful with electricity and water.
Q. How long does the light last for in a mains power cut
More than 3 hours, this is whats required for the emergency light regulations.
Q. I can't have emergency lighting as the building is grade 2
Yes you can, you can replace your existing sockets and install the emergency lighting sockets.
Q. My sockets are near the ground how can that help for an emergency light
Being near the ground is good, if you have a smoke filled room, smoke rises. With the sockets near the ground you can see the floor.
Q. Can I test the light strip
Yes, we have a test button on the socket front, you can press this to see the LED light is working.
Q. Can i remove the green LED on the front of the socket
No, its there to indicate the battery is charging and you have 4.6v dc supply to the main PCB board. You can cover it up if its an issue, but the regulations ask for a LED charging light.
