been on a job today where i had to fit 15 fire rated downlights, using the little pork pie jb's i was on my own with no radio going insane.

just wondering which way you guys do downlights....ive used the new hager j501 jb's good bit of kit but seem to take just as long.

been told that aurora do a little box which the wires just push into might try them next time

thanking you

Wago (and Wago JB) & In-sure, Both are push fit connectors.

Personally, I haven't used the Wago - But I have used many of the In-sure push fits. I like them. (enclosed in a chocbox).

Why not use the ones with loop in loop out transformers. I used to use the ibl contract ones but have had problems with them burning out lampholders. I now use snaplite although they are a bit pricey.`
