It stands quite nicely on it's back and also because it puts out white light it's good for using as a work light when filming videos or photographing things.

Using it for photography is a good idea. I just noticed a red LED in the photocell, what is it for?

It was a Zodion Super6 cell that was powering the light in the day time due to it being full of water so I pulled out the dead circuitry and turned it into a shorting plug but added power indicators too.

Ah that explains it. We don't have photocells like that here in Australia. Once again great job.

I've seen a few of those around however our cells are sometimes mounted on the bottom of the fixture with the cell window facing away from the bowl!

Oh wow, why? To stop the sun from baking them?

I'm not sure but that is what I believe myself. Sunlight here is very harsh with a high UV rate during summer and is known to discolour and brittle plastics as well as damaging paint finishes on cars.

Britain doesn't really have sun so our photocells are safe (for now!) Do plastic/GRP street lights become brittle too?

Actually I'm not sure if I have seen a plastic or GRP lantern over here. I live in a town that still has a good amount of SOX and mercury with aluminium canopies.

The lights on my street are all SON-T, but there are a few SOX sideroad lanterns still around, mainly Thorn Beta 5's. Sadly most (if not all) of the local merc lanterns are gone now, and LED is taking over!

Is the 57W from ballast loss?
I'm asking because I think that the lamp is originally 50W

The lamp says 57w on the side of it, although it does seem like an odd wattage.

LED made an appearance here for the first time in my town. Some main roads have a mixture of SON and SOX. I do a lot of night time driving and have a high preference for SOX lights on roads. LED is the worst.

LED causes a lot of eye strain.
