    Hi there
    I got an outside 60 watts lamp on the wall and I want to move it another 4 metres away along the wall.. Can I use 4 metres of 0.75mm flex? It be in plastic conduit..the flex will be in a junction box next to where the light is now..there is a 1.5mm flex going in and 0.75mm coming out into the lamp on the wall at the moment..

    The cable is fine provided it isn't exposed to the elements at any point.

    The jb will need to be external type and you may need compression glands for the old cable to enter the jb unit.

    If the old cables will enter through the back of the jb a squirt of mastic will help prevent moisture ingress.
