    Hi all, I'm facing a dilemma I can't seem to sort out. I want to put together a 12V fluorescent black light system for attracting insects. The purpose is solely for photography, no collecting or harm to the insects. I'm in the Adelaide area and have "finally" sourced some 18" BL fluoro tubes locally, but am having a most difficult time finding 12V fixtures for that size tube. I realise most of these items have gone to LED, so that is most of my problem. I would prefer a double fixture to accept two bulbs, but beggars can't be choosy. Obviously the reason for 12V is so I can run the lights from my truck battery. If anyone has knowledge where to source such fixtures I would be eternally grateful. Thanks in advance! John

    Have you considered a powerpack? I believe they convert from 12v to 240v.
