Next weekend I'm assisting my brother who is a retired electrician to install these throughout the my entire house. Robus Taylor LED Downlight Taylor 10W CCT, these are all-in-one and dimmable. He still gets trade from https://www.ideal.co.nz/ so they are costing me $20 ea plus $69 for a dimmer in the lounge. I believe these lights they have a type of snap-shut connection clip box.

FYI

 

I used the robus taylor 9W 92mm from ideal as well, paid $20 + gst each, this is for the version with the 3 prong plug on the end.  I used clipsal quick connects, which were quite expensive connectors costing about $13 + gst per connector.

 

Quite happy with the lights, I used 6 in our kitchen (small kitchen).  Was thinking of doing the hallway +/- dining & lounge with them, but might use the larger 125mm 10W lights and install less lights.

 

Is there are cheaper bubble plug connector to the clipsal quick connect, or does anyone know where I can get them cheaper?

We just had a rep from Visionary Technologies show us their lights and were pretty impressed with their options. NZ designed and made too. A 10W, 97+ CRI, IC rated, IP65 tiltable recessed downlight was about $34 from memory. Non tilt versions were also available. It's the high CRI and IP rating that appealed most and the rest of the features a bonus.
