      Picked up 2 of these for my uLite video kit and couldn't be happier. The normal bulbs that come with the kit burn out FAST. With this handy little adapter, that's one less thing I need to worry about now when I go on a shoot. You can pick up great color balanced bulbs pretty much anywhere now, and they last for years as long as you don't break them, which saves huge money in the end. Highly recommended.

          I bought this 4-Socket Fluorescent Adapter to use with the Westcott uLite Constant Light with 20 Softbox (120VAC). I installed 23watt CFLs in the adapter and they really give me plenty of light (for CFLs) and keep the talent cool too! A great idea to be able to use today's new CFL bulbs in a photographic soft box fixture.

            Comments about Westcott Four Socket Fluorescent Adapter for uLite Fixture:

            I needed extra light from a couple of ceiling sockets that formerly held single 60W incandescents. I was able to use these adapters to replace the single 60W lamps each with four LED equivalents, and now there's light to spare. This is a well-constructed product that I highly recommend in places where you need more light without the expense of installing extra wiring and sockets.

              Comments about Westcott Four Socket Fluorescent Adapter for uLite Fixture:

              Bought this to use with the Wescott softbox lights. It works very well and allows for replacing the hot 500 watt incandescent lights with the much cooler fluorescent lights which cost less and locally available at your local home improvement or hardware store. I recommend the daylight 3500k 100 watt equivalent.

                I needed more afordable lighting to shoot videos with and decided to buy the Four Socket Adapter to increase the lighting power output. This adapter does exactly what it's sopose to do, it turns a single socket into 4 and allows you to add more light bulbs to produce more light saving you from buying a whole other light set. For this price you can't lose!

                  The biggest problem with uLites is HEAT. But with this adapter and 4 florescent Daylight bulbs it seems to work like a charm. Adjustment of white balance made easy in-camera or Photoshop. And it's SO MUCH COOLER in the studio.

                    Used it to replace one 150 watt bulb in the dinning room lamp with 4 7.5 watt led 40 watt equivalents. 160 watts light for 30 watts and dimable too. It is too good for the use I am putting it to, but the hardware stores only carry two for ones.

                                  Picked up 2 of these for my uLite video kit and couldn't be happier. The normal bulbs that come with the kit burn out FAST. With this handy little adapter, that's one less thing I need to worry about now when I go on a shoot. You can pick up great color balanced bulbs pretty much anywhere now, and they last for years as long as you don't break them, which saves huge money in the end. Highly recommended.

                                      My wife purchased 2 ULite adapters for my birthday. A little more than 2 weeks after being purchased, one of the ULite adapters is not working correctly. Only 2 of the sockets work. I made sure it was not the bulbs. Needless to say, I have to get another.

                                          I use a few soft box's to photograph art for one of my clients websites. I've had terrible luck with the photoflood's from the local photography store.

                                          I currently have 4 60w (equivalent) florescent lights which last 10,000 hours compared to the 20-60 hours the photoflood provided. It doesn't effect the light output if i only put 3, 2 or 1 light in, it still projects evenly. I plan on having 100w equivalent bulbs as well to have ~400w from each light.

                                          If you are looking for longer term investment, I'd recommend these adapters.

                                            I was looking for a way to rid myself of the heat and short life-span of incandescent light bulbs. Besides the longer life of a florescent bulb, being that they are so much cooler, color filter film may be placed closer to the light, giving safer and easier use. (They still heat up though so caution is used). Being there is an increase in final circumference of light bulbs footprint, some reflector covers may not fit.

                                            I got two of these to add to the Westcott Ulite soft boxes... what a difference!

                                            Fluorescent light is so much cooler and easier to work with. Plus you can leave them on longer as bulb life is 10,000 hours vs. 60 hours of a standard incandescent bulb.

                                            If you have a ulite kit or are thinking of getting one, add these and bulbs to your purchase... you won't be sorry.

                                                  This product does the job, and is easy to install.

                                                  This product is cheaply made and breaks off in the light socket. You can carefully get it out and super glue it back together again. I order 5 and 3 have come apart so far.
