Look at how the electrode ends of the FL tube has done to the plastic tube sleeve! Completely gave it a good roasting thats for sure

I've seen this lots of time with the plastic sleeves that they put on 54W T5 HO:

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I'm antiLED and hope that the LED lighting will be phased out in favor of old lighting technologies soon.

And its thanks for mostly the overuse of plastics. For this a specialised fridge tube that has a T12 outer glass sleeve with the inner T8 tube itself would be 100x better.

Everyone like to manufacture things with plastic these days and I mean in applications where metal and glass would be better and in fact better for your health. I don't do plastic kettles as my house in Reading has a stainless steel kettle and my mum carries to work a bottle of water in a glass VOSS bottle because she says the plastic bottles can infuse a substance into the water that mimic a hormone called Oestrogen and neither the BPA free bottles are any better. So for me a glass VOSS bottle or a stainless steel flask

Best options for new lighting systems are Induction, CMH and LEP
