How many lamps do you have? « on: June 02, 2007, 01:25:21 AM » Author: arcblue
Late night insomnia kicked in so instead of counting sheep, I did a rough count of approximately 400 lamps on my property that are in sockets, ready to be switched on or plugged in (including those on automobiles, bike, etc). Of those, 185 are miniature clear Christmas lights that I use throughout the year.
I could probably add at  least another 200 if I counted LEDs, flashlights, & miniature incandescents that are indicators on various electrical and devices.
Then, I could add in about 850 more lights for holiday lighting, and another 60 that are not in use, either working and nonworking lamps on display and spares.
That's approximately 1500 light bulbs! Do I have enough? Do you?

In my rented place, 12. 5 20W downlighters, 400WMV uplighter ( I like a modicum of light) 16CP carbon lamp for "mood" and 2 are CFL. 1 LED lamp as close up lighting. 1 15W SES in fridge. 1 F36T8 in bathroom.

If I start counting LED indicators then a lot more, computer is lit up like a city.

It all depends on what counts..
If you're just talking fluorescents, probably something a bit over 100.
If thats including all those hundreds of strings of Christmas lights...I'd say atleast 50k.

I'm really unsure, but i know i have about 106 F40T12's, so that's something right? I would guess my total number of bulbs to be somewhere over 300.

I have arount 200 - 300. The majority is made of fluorescent tubes but I have a crate full of HID lamps. I don't have much in the way of incandescent because it was banned some 10 years ago so I only have surplus off eBay.
