We have several adapter plugs that adapt the Europlug to the plug type of your country. The adapter doesn’t convert the line voltage! Please email and we’ll do our best to help you.
Is there a light bulb provided with the lamp?
No sorry, we won’t be shipping any light bulbs with the wooll-e® as they are to fragile to ship without damaging.
What kind of light bulb do I need for the wooll-e?
The socket from the wooll-e lamp uses an E27 light bulb, also an E26 light bulb should work.
For the most energy efficient light bulb we can recommend a LED light, preferable one that has a complete open sphere, just like a old light bulb.
We’ve tested several and different kinds of light bulbs, from halogen, Compact fluorescent lamp to LED light bulbs. Important is that the light bulbs stay under the maximum temperature that the magnet in the iFIX and oFIX may reach.
