Tools You May Need
When you're testing a light bulb at home, there are two simple methods - using a fixture that you know works and using a multimeter. While the first method is straightforward in practice, it can be a little more time consuming and may not always be an option if you're using a specific fixture light bulb. In this guide, we'll be examining the second method, which requires the following:
- The light bulb you want to test.
- A multimeter: This is a small, portable device that measures voltage, electric current, and resistance. Visit your local Batteries Plus Bulbs to pick up everything you need to test your bulbs.
Keep in mind your project may require different tools. Be sure to always consult the instruction manual to determine if you will need any tools in addition to the ones listed above.
