    But can't find them on websites or eBay
    I have looked and I find lots of bulbs but which ones are mine? image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

    Just look on ebay for:

    ba15s globe led 12V

    That brings up a few, but watch out for 24V versions that creep into the listings.

    BA15S is the fitting, single contact bayonet.

    I use to and still do call them bulbs but my old boss would go mad. Bulbs grow in the garden, the ones that make light are lamps.:).

    As an apprentice, I went to the stores and asked old Tommy for a replacement bulb - he slapped me hard on the head and said " bulbs are what you plant in the garden...its a f****n lamp and don't ever call it a bulb again...." That was 37 years ago and never have since...

    Shame this never came up last year ..
    I had a couple of boxes of them.. Used to sell them as LED replacement tail light bulbs.. Cost per unit trade was £1.55 a go.. But yes, they are common enough :)
