EOL orange filament lamp

EOL orange filament lamp

Click to view full size image

This was caused from my comparison test between this and HPS. I used two identical wallpacks, one with this lamp and no ballast and the other with 35w HPS and sola ballast with built in starter.

As they both shared the same power cord, the sola gear sent pulses into the LED with each power up and fried it. Parts of the filaments were dead suddenly and the lamp began to flicker shortly after. Its no loss really and I will Simply replace the lamp as im set to buy more orange ones for use in my outdoor wallpacks on the house.

If you are epileptic, you DO NOT want to own filament LED lamps, Despite this lamp being killed early from messing around, they all have a lifespan and will likely pulse and flicker at EOL

If you plugged it in the same circuit as a small wallpack HPS fixture and this caused it to fail I'd just take it back to the store and get another one, they really should be built to replace an incandescent light which would of survived this, I've used a hps wall pack for years with a plug attached to it for the Christmas lights and I've never had a problem with them and they where on for about two/three months a year from dusk to dawn, even the cheap led sets survived, and I would even flick the lights off and on just to see the Christmas lights without the HPS while it cools and restarts giving me like a minute or two of just Christmas lights, but the igniter was going the whole time..

Yeah from now on i wont allow the LED to be connected until the HPS has started first, if i ever do more tests. I had power cycled it a few times in the span of a few minutes, the HPS wallpack would instant start full brightness. The ballast is one of those cheapo sola ones where the igniter is built into the ballast, there was only about 2-3 feet of wire between the 2 fixtures and they shared a single cord. It was set up like this: []T[]

I put one of my other lamps, the yellow, in my desklamp and left it on and its working fine for hours so its not a heat failure or anything or a design flaw that killed the orange so soon

The ignitor can only cause the ballast to make voltage surges like that, if it is semi-parallel or parallel (So using the ballast for making the HV pulses to start the HPS lamp). If it is series ignitor, its pulse transformer then is too small to causes voltage surges high enough to kill the LED lamp, if connected to the same circuit.

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 hope that LED won't replace all forms of other lighting.

There is another possible reason i discovered. The lamp may not have had a gas / vacuum. I noticed the lamp was getting hot faster than the other LED ones when left running. And when it reached EOL, the inside of the lamp had smoke coming from the dying electronics and circulating around inside. One things for sure its an isolated incident and I'll just go get a replacement
