    Another Aussie here, also using a legit adaptor … but I have burned through all 4 replacement bulbs within 24 hours of receiving them. The first that blew had melted the bulb holder, and that was in the first hour or so of use. So yes, they could definitely start a fire. I did hop on the internet wondering about finding replacement bulbs but the inner responsible adult is telling the outer geek that it’s not worth the risk …

      Have just the same problem. I was watching Teen Wolf and the lights were on the wall besides me and I didn’t even notice when they had stopped working. I think it’s because one of ten lights just burned or something like that and after that all the lights stopped working. I’d like to check it but I don’t know how to open these little tardises and not to break them omg

      where do you live are you in the UK?

      doesn’t sound good

      so you are in the States? reason i ask is that people have been buying them in the UK and plugging into mains, voltage is 240 here not 110 so they would overheat

      Hello booboo I live in Australia, I bought mine on Amazon, our voltage here is higher but had a special circuit breaker so that they would not over heat not sure what happened but they did.

    what i was curious about – is they come with a light that has a red tip – usually that means if you change one light with that red tip one – it should be able to flash but i can’t seem to get the tardis open to change a bulb and the instructions don’t help much

    if anyone has a movie of them flashing or can tell me how to change the bulb that would be nice – thanks for reading~!

      Me too! Just got mine today and I’m a bit stumped on trying to get to the light itself.

      I came here looking for an answer as well. So the TARDIS is split into two pieces that provide a casing for the light. So stick a fingernail or something tiny and flat into the crease on the side and pull apart. Hope that helps.

      They simply pull apart! At first I was kinda scared when it popped but it simply came apart, but be careful.
