I used 5 different 18W lamps (1-GE, 1-VerdaRay, 3-Philips SOX-E). A spot temperature meter, a light meter, and a watt & current meter. I didn't bother with any voltmeters since I really didn't know how to measure the lamp current.

A clamp meter would serve you well. You'd simply need to put the meter around the cable going directly to the lamp and you would have the current reading.

What's clamp meter? I'm no electrical genius so I'd appreciate an easy way to measure the lamp current.
