    Depends on what type and wattage. Maybe the Blob will help you out with that. He has a nice variety.

    ...And we should expand this to cover the number and type/size of batteries in the BOB to power the lightbulbs...

    Immolatus Just getting started. Always.

    Bumped, because I was reading another old thread that also got bumped, and its just plain funny.

    I would also like to reignite the lightbulb/light bulb controversy.
    I say light bulb because spell check doesnt like it. It also doesnt like 'doesnt'.
