Amashubhu ahambisana nombalaasetshenziswa kakhulu kuzo zonke izici zokuphatha umbala, ikakhulukazi ekuhloleni ngokunembile ukuchezuka kombala wezimpahla.Ngenxa yokuthi imithombo yokukhanya ehlukene ikhipha amanani ahlukene wamandla, imibala ehlukene izovela lapho ikhanyisiwe esihlokweni.Iithubhu elihambisana nombalailungele: Indwangu, ukuphrinta nokudaya, izingubo, isikhumba, izicathulo, amapulasitiki, ugesi, ukupenda, okokunamathela, oyinki, okupakishwayo, ifenisha, izinto zokwakha, izithombe, nezinye izinhlelo zokusebenza zokuphatha imibala.

Kukhona amasekethe amaningi ithubhu yokukhanya ehambisana nombala, ezidinga izisetshenziswa ezisizayo.Ngakho-ke, kufanele isetshenziswe kanye nama-transformer ahambisanayo nama-capacitor ukuqinisekisa ukuthi izibani ziqala ngamandla afanele.
