  1. Hey I’m having trouble with that light. 2 of the 6 clusters burned out, any idea how to get parts? I’ve tried emailing lighthouse several times with no response ?

    • Hey Paul,

      I was on vacation and my power strip malfunctioned so they all died 🙁 – I will have to redo the experiment once I’m back home!
