Hi All, I’ve tried to replace my pendants today. The photos show the new pendants as wired. The second pendant either flickers or doesn’t turn on. I’ve tried changing the connector strip on the first rose to a 15 amp version but no luck. Can anyone tell what I’m doing wrong? Thank you!

The two browns at pendant 1 go together into L and the two blues go to N. There is no need for that extra piece of strip connector linking the two browns together.

Probably just a dodgy connection somewhere. were the lights flicker free before you replaced them ?

Is it on a dimmer switch? My light in the hall was flickering but a change in switch solved the problem
