Chrome LED Dual Voltage Shaver Light 8W 480lm is rated

Good replacement solution
I bought this fitting to replace a worn out fitting. The thing is reasonably well made and ticked all the boxes. However, the real reason I gave it 5 stars is to do with how easy it is to replace an existing fitting. The cable entry point is in the middle of the fitting as are the connection terminals. However, the backing plate on this fitting is made of soft plastic which is easy to drill. There is then plenty of room inside the back of the fitting to allow the mains cable to run internally to the connection terminal. Therefore, regardless of the point where the mains supply comes out of your wall - this fitting can be adapted to cope with it.

Good Product But....
I needed a new shaver light to replace (a different) one that had gone faulty. This light looked perfect for size and the design is quite nice. This one also has a permanent supply to the shaver socket which the old one didn't. You had to have the light on to use.
The wiring to this unit was straightforward as the connections are fairly central and there is some room to allow for a small amount of excess cable which you need to make the final connections. The only slight issue for me was the socket being on the left as the old one was on the right. An opposite hand version or perhaps making it reversible would make it better.
The but comes from the fact that the diffuser is quite hard to remove and replace and you need to do this to fix it to the wall. It was easier to remove when it was off the wall as the body has a little bit of flex in it but once fixed I found it impossible to replace the diffuser. There are lugs at either end and I tried all ways to get them both in place without success. In the end I had to file down the lugs so they weren't quite so prominent and with a bit of flex in the diffuser itself they finally both pushed home. I hope I don't need to remove it any time soon. An improvement in this part of the design would make this a 5 star item.
