hi all have just been given a tiga sl12 (dont you hate me lol)
my question is it is fitted with the 6 and 20 watt bulbs now i find the 6 more than enough for both baiting up and seeing what i have caught in the surf so i ask is it ok to put 2 6 watt bulbs in the lamp saving the hassle of not having the problem of having to stop due to the bulb blowing
thanks

the 20w is really too bright and drains your battery.

i use 2, 6w bulbs as do most i know even the pro diggers do this. this actually gives you a spare bulb should one blow.

6w is ample for digging and fishing and some will say still too bright.

the new headlights though have a bulb that gives a white light where cheap bulbs will give you a yellow light that doesnt seem as bright, but still bright enough.


i prefer to use 2, 10w bulbs. these are very bright and still give around 6 - 8 hours light on a 12amp battery. more than enough for a night session.
