BATWING
Meet Mega Man

We found him, we found Mega Man himself!

Turns out he spends his spare time fighting crime and stuff – it’s not all about energy efficiency. Unless of course his super cool blue suit has solar panels on the back to power the jet pack (disclaimer, there may not actually be a jetpack).

Keep your eyes peeled for him scouring the streets for villains to vanquish and bulbs to recycle.

On a serious note, I think it’s time for all companies to go the superhero route. I vote for He-Man, the next master of the lighting universe.

A lesson in bat behaviour

OK lighting types – let me tell you a little about chiropteric behaviour. First of all, contrary to popular opinion, we bats aren’t blind. So we won’t feed or roost if you put a bloody great luminaire on our patch. Secondly, if you disturb us, you’ll be had up under the Wildlife and Countryside Acts.
