We just plugged all the sockets into a power strip with surge protection. I wouldn't go over 150W w/ all bulbs to play it on the safe side. Hope that helps.

I need to build a light for a bathroom similar to a vanity light. I want 6 evenly spaced bulbs along a strip of wood or some sort of hard reflective material. What I'm unsure about is wiring. How do I wire the sockets in parallel? Most importantly, how do I ground this unit? I've included pictures of the porcelain sockets I have in mind and they do not have a ground terminal (nor does every other type of porcelain socket at Lowes). I want to use 14/3 SJOW wire and for this unit to generally be as safe as possible. I've read here and on Roger Deakin's forums how easy it is to construct these lights, but the details I'm requesting in this post are those which are never discussed! I look forward to hearing from you.
Wire in parallel. Don't worry about the lack of ground terminal. As with all lamps it is a good idea to use some sort of RCD.
