I tried, but when it bound to a socket it wouldn't free up until I
chipped out all the melted wax.

I also burnt my fingers when attempting to hot-plug. Especially when
maximum run time was being approached.

Surprised no-one has mentioned the much older, but still useful
application candle.  Typically only used on special occasions these days
or when lightbulb fails (usually due to dependancy issues with inputs,
ie volts_ac. Candle also has problems in that it is usually misplace and
when found it's companion app matches have also typically been
misplaced. It is usually recommended that the applications candle and
matches be kept in a back up or known location somewhere just in case.
