I have a new hobby and needed a spotlight over the desk, I ordered a 5Wat Led GU10 Bulb wired with an inline switch and a 3-pin plug that I have fixed up as to their instructions, and tested.
The question is can I leave this switched on at the mains plug and switch it on and off from the inline switch?

sure. You think that wattage is enough? Have you tried it? I think in the US 17 watt is equal to 100 watt incandescent light bulb. What would yours be 40 watt?

I bought a small spotlight, It has a steady base and a swan neck so I can move the light in any direction.
I bought it from a thrift store. cost me all of $5,smile.png.
I have it shining on my computer keyboard and my piano keyboard , when I play. It is very portable.
I leave it plugged in all of the time, Just turn it off from the light.

I don’t know how things work in other countries, but I don’t see why you couldn’t.
