Never seen a better example of " foot in mouth" syndrome!

Either one of these would work.

It's is get a new power pack, or rewire to split the load among the 10 watt transformers you have. Do not attempt to tie the transformers together.

My understanding is that the 0.375 watt bulb (700041) is no longer being made and they are replacing it with the 700044 0.5 watt bulb. So, I would use the 0.5 watt number for planning purposes.
