Can you replace a 100 volt light bulb with a 240 volt light bulb?

Answer for USA, Canada and countries running a 60 Hz supply service.If we assume that the resistance of the light is R then the amps drawn by the 100 Volt light is 100 divided by R; and the amps for the 240 volt light is 240 divided by R. Therefore, at 240 volts the light will draw 2.4 time the current it would draw at 100 volts and will likely burn out the bulb immediately. Correction: The answer above assumes the R of both lamps is the same. Most likely they are not.A 100W lamp designed for and supplied with 100V draws 1A with an R of 100ohms.A 100W lamp designed for and supplied with 240V draws 0.42A with an R of 571.43ohms.The Rs do not change. I assume the circuit has not changed so it is a 100V circuit.If you place the 100V across the 571.43ohms you get a current of 0.175A.The lamp designed for 240V, when placed on a 100V circuit, would not glow and would not burn out.Going the other way and placing 240V across the lamp designed for 100v you get a current of 2.4A. Since it is designed for only 1A it would most likely burn out.All this is very technical and to the questioner I apologize. The answer is:NO, YOU CANNOT REPLACE A 100V LIGHT BULB WITH A 240V LIGHT BULB.As always, if you are in doubt about what to do, the best advice anyone should give you is to call a licensed electrician to advise what work is needed.Before you do any work yourself,on electrical circuits, equipment or appliances,always use a test meter to ensure the circuit is, in fact, de-energized.IF YOU ARE NOT ALREADY SURE YOU CAN DO THIS JOBSAFELY AND COMPETENTLYREFER THIS WORK TO QUALIFIED PROFESSIONALS.

How do 100-240 volt power adapters work?

i am quite sure these adapters have a "resister"of sorts (voltage regulator) in them which holds back any voltage above say 100v. So they are still runnig internaly at 100v even when plugged into 240v outlet

What would cause light sockets to read 130V in a 240V system when the light switch is off?

More than likely, your 240V system has branches that supply a standard household 120V to things like lighting outlets. Most light bulbs in the US run on 120V so this is probably a convenience feature. Otherwise you would have to go to a specialty store and buy 240V bulbs.


How many amps does it take to light a 250 watt light bulb?

Depends on the supply voltage, UK 240V would be 250w/240V = 1.041Aor US 110V 250w/110V = 2.27APower = Volts x Amps so you can check it backwards

You can't run this light on a 120V circuit and get the same light output if it is designed to run on a 240V service. You need a voltage converter transformer. They are a common item sold for international travel. The difference in frequency shouldn't affect the light.

240V European and 120V US does one have an advantage over the other?

Generally 220v anything works easier or with less effort so can be cheaper to run. Appliances that run off 240V draw less current than 120V appliances so lighter wiring and fixtures can be used. However, 240V is more prone to arcing than 120V. Also, 240V is more likely to blow you away than 120V, whereas 120V is more likely to "grab" (Cause your muscles to involuntarily contract, i.e. making your hand grab a conductor) you. Also the US uses 120V because Edison originally used 100V. It was upped over the years to cope with demand. The US also has 240V in residential service for large appliances like ovens and dryers.


What fuse should you use for laptop charger UK?

A typical laptop charger draws less than 1A at 240V, so a 1A fuse should be fine. The power draw for a charger will be written on the charger itself, of course; you'll see something like "Input: 100 - 240 VAC, 1.2 - 0.6A". In this case, the two numbers at the right go together, so at 100V the charger uses 1.2A, at 240V it uses 0.6A.
