Lite White is the closest you'll get to mercury vapor with a fluorescent tube.

The light has that purplish/greenish UV tinge to it. It's hard to explain.

It's basically cool white with a slight greenish hue.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

I like the lite white color. I'd just rather that they made it in full wattage 40 watt lamps as well.

I've never seen these before. I'd like to find some, especially if made in F20T12.

Yes the Lite White color is still made, but have always been made in reduced wattage lamps such as 34w T12s, etc. I have seen the LWs in use in the past, the GEs were slightly greenish and the Sylvanias were of some odd pale pink color. Haven't seen any in use for years but a hardware store about 30 mins from me still sells them.

MAN! I really gotta find one of these, I'm going out tomorrow, I'm going to see if I can get a few! I love the lite white color as well, even if it IS 34 watt!

Linear fluorescent will never lose to LED!
I am not Anti-LED, as I have some in use at my house.

RCM, may I ask? Are you still in California or did you move already?

Lite White was killed off by last year's ban, right? Grainger has F34, F96, and F96HO Lite Whites on clearance.

Pride and quality workmanship should lie behind manufacturing, not greed.

Lite was developed as an attempt to deliver more lumens per watt. It's basically a cool white, but with more energy focused in the photopic, 550 nm, peak (green/ yellow). In adding energy to this peak, other portions of the spectrum had to be sacrificed, so while the perceived lumens went up, CRI went down.

nice! I'd love to find a lite white tube but I'll either have an eco lamp or an energy savign lamp but not both. The two are OK alone but reduced energy eco lamps are crap lol. I'd love to get a full mercury lite-white tube someday though. I've never seen one in person.

The GE ecolux watt misery isn't too bad actually neither is the sylvania but we know the Alto is junk
Lite white is a interesting color though but I couldn't stand being in a room lit with them..the cri is way too low for me

ahh okay. The ecolux full wattage GEs aren't bad either but i don't like the green etch (though i prefer the green etch over the green endcaps.

Interesting that they arent labeled watt-miser II any more.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

We have a hardware store near here which was lighted with Lite White. To me, it looks like Cool White, but very slightly yellowish-green. I like the color of the tri-phosphor lamps (800) series, SPX.

I now have some Sylvania Lite Whites from the early 80s which were a restore find from a while back. They are certainly full mercury. The LWs in fact look almost like a DX mercury lamp as far as color rendering goes. I remember the McMahons furniture store chain used Lite Whites throughout the store in the 90s, they were later taken over by Helig Meyers which later went out of biz. By the way, my description of the lamp was typed before the efficency standards was raised in July 2012. So it is now out of date, the Lite White is no longer manufactured for sale in the USA, but may still be made for export. The hardware store where I bought this now carrys GE F34/CX41/WMs in their place.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.

ahh so these aren't made anymore. that stinks... I'm surprised energy saving F40 lamps are even made period. Weren't the 60W F96T12 slimlines phased out? I only see the 75W ones still stocked. The 75W ones are a lot brighter and better in the cold anyways. I know Philips doesn't make the F34T12 lamps anymore but GE and sylvania do, though I don't see them around. Then again, I don't specifically look for ES lamps so they're probably around and it just doesn't register with me.
