Yes. I agree with the others with you taking a picture to show us.

Sometimes itâs cheaper to just change the led altogether instead of sourcing for the driver.

I re-run my cove lights from olden days fluorescent tubes to led type which I ordered online and it didnât cost me an arm or leg.

Haha.... so steady

Haha.... so steady ðð... unfortunately my situation is a bit tricky cos to get above the false ceiling to access the LED driver, the ceiling quite high up.... old man already ð

Thanks for all the advice.... Will check for Meanwell on the net and have a go at it; thank you ð

The intention was never to boast.

 

But many a time, most of us have found out the hard and expensive way when we call someone to do a ‘simple’ job.

 

U could actually be charged $200 for an item which actually costs $20 and could actually get online or at sim lim tower.

 

And after my $120 toilet choke lesson, I’m quite determined to try to figure out any problem myself first before I give up and hand over to the ‘professionals’.

What’s the price for changing one? Or it’s a lump sum quotation?

Yup.

Very reasonable. Probably took 30mins. It’s not difficult to diy also. Such switches are cheap from choo Chiang marketing.

Cheap even by NTUC standard. The electrician time and transport already cost a few dollars. 

 

Recently, I found a electrician who charged labour and 3 (1 x 3 gang 1 way, 1 2 gang 1 way and 2 gang 2 way) wall switches including parts for $80 at a colleague's HDB flat but the same electrician charge $50 per switch (labour and parts) for condo's.

 

I find this kind of pricing a bit rich for me.

 

Many staying in HDB are many times richer than those staying in condo. Look at T2 staying in CCK HDB is richer than 95% of those here in MCF. His asset probably more than the combine asset of 60% of members here.

It’s easy to DIY but I do not have the electrical wires. I bought the switches on my own.

My parts alone cost me $30. So I paid the same price as your electrician

It is not a matter of rich.

 

It is a matter of which is a bigger carrot.

 

T2 stays in CCK HDB.  This is the biggest joke in MCF.

just a word of cautious not to connect more than one heavy motorized device or heating devices on 2gang and above that may heat up as most of it is connected direct to the switchboard for only 13A max.

Eh? Isn’t it just replacing of the existing light switches? Or run new lines? If replacing, you don’t need wires.

The old Clipsal switches panel are side by side whereas the new Legeand one have a space in between. There is a wire connecting to the 2 gang and it’s kinda short for the new ones.
