    GU10 220v Downlight cable connection?

    I've ordered some GU10 dichroic LED bulbs, but my fittings at home for both 12v and 220v have the thin pin connections. I haven't seen the proper 220v version in places like homepro etc. Does anyone know if they have them or where to buy?


    Thanks

    Are you sure about that as 220volts GU10 is designed for a round pin and not the thin pin connection.

    I've fitted many GU10s and never

    I've just purchased GU10 LED'S for my place and the fitting is designed different for both.

    There designed like that so people cant fok up and fit the wrong globe into the wrong socket.
    Stroller is a Yerman faggot.

    The one above is for 220v and typically has the connection lugs that insert and twist as below.

    The two thin pins usually indicate 12v


    The difference being so that you don't blow yourself up while trying to insert a 12v dichroic into a 220v.

    All I need is the GU10 cables.

    I use those connectors in the round flouro light
    fittings here.
    I buy them in a local electric supply shop.
    It's only a small place, so they should be in any electrical shop.

    I've been thinking about your post for ages as because the 12 V and 220-240 volt LED's have completely different sockets so one cant put the wrong light in the wrong socket.

    How is it your house has thin pin connections for both ? I don't understand how that can be considering the way the lights are designed.

    The thin pin connection comes from a 220-240v transformer where as the 22o-240v LED plugs straight into the light socket.

    Whats going down at your gaff ?
