      electrical Problem

      Missus has just got a new set of light for her fish tank.
      They are Metal Halide 2X250W with German 16amp 250V plugs.

      On start-up it states they draw 16amp but 4 amp when running.
      Australian shipped one comes with a 10amp plug.
      (Q) Would it be safe to run if i just change the plugs ?
      (Q) Would it blow a normal timer switch.

      We have just a new ring installed with 16 sockets for her tank so would it be safe to plug them into this ring or have we gotta get another one.

      idealy it would be better to have own circuit, as the power point breaker would probaly be rated at 16 amps as for changing the the plug you should buy a 20 amp plug.as for the time clock you need to see what its rated at i think they are normaly 10 amps but its worth checking.hope this helps
