1440w / 9w=160 lights

So technically 160 lights if it’s a dedicated circuit and that’s all that’s on it

If it’s a circuit with existing lights and/or plugs
12 minus amount of lights and/or plugs

This is correct. Note however, if you are using a dimmer switch, that will be your limitation rather than circuit loading.

Does the current scratch and save promo include these lights for an additional discount?

So if I have 4x outlets and then pot lights what would be my max? Also when these things burn out how do we get replacements?

Thanks T

Are the 4" 3000k and 4000k power supplies interchangeable?

How far apart are people spacing these lights? Is there a general rule?

Anybody know what is the return policy on these? Is it 90 days as stated on their website in general section?

Ok cool will add another line specifically for pot lights.

Also I didn’t see an answer on what we will all be doing at 50k hours for replacements?

Thanks T

Why is it 12 if you've got other stuff on the circuit?

I was able to get the scratch and save promo today when picking up another couple packs this afternoon. I've got to go back out this afternoon so I might pickup a few more in hopes of getting a few more cards.

Electrical code is 12 receptacle/light sockets for 100w each. Dedicated circuits can go higher because the load cant change. For the 12 rule you could put in a 100w bulb or 60.

So it's the number receptacles/lights irregardless of power or amperage?

I believe so for general receptacles/lights. Kitchen is a totally diff game.

I used this guide to give me a better understanding. Its from manitoba hydro but most of it is applicable to anywhere in Canada. Your text to link here...

Thanks for the link.

I had one more question, what about those light fixtures that have a bunch of bulbs on them? Are they considered one outlet or is each bulb considered it's own outlet?

Wiring 10 pot lights to a single switch is the same as wiring a single light fixture with 10 bulbs on it, right?
