I've got a few S6 GE indicators (US-made, as I assume those are), but they're 3W, clear. Never seen any others in that wattage.

I have seen as low as 3 Watts S6 version in the .PDF catalog from sylvania...

By the way, at the same catalog, I find some bulb that can handle up to 250 Volts as well...

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

Forgot that I also have about a dozen GE 12V/6W S6 lamps. And one 30V Westinghouse.

I have some Westinghouse 6S6 bulbs that are 155v, but are made after the Philips takeover since they came from Korea.

155V? What would those be used for?

They would use for the exit sign or indicators where long life is needed for reduce maintenance.

Maybe, but 155V is quite a strange selection. I can understand 130 & 230, but 155?

@rjuna2: Such long life (or extra long life) would be still rated as "120V", even if the filament design would correspond to "normal" 150V rating.
As far as i remember, 160V is battery voltage of some diesel locomotive used here (i don't remember the type, but i don't think it was so unusual in this matter), so it (Silverliner's lamps) might be intended for such applications.

No more selfballasted c***

The only other common lamp that I am familiar with that has a design voltage in excess of 130 is the 15 watt T6, rated at 145v. These are rated at 145v for use on 120v to give very long life in exit sign applications.

I use these in Colonial style copper lanterns that flank my front door. The fixtures have upright white candle sockets, two in each lantern. All four give a wonderful, warm flame-like glow.

They don't last as long as you would think. The filaments become extremely fragile. Once they've been in use for about a year (I burn them every night from dusk until dawn), they will often fail if they are tapped. Usually, I'll notice that one is burning brighter because the long filaments sag and break and short themselves out.

@Lumalux: I have the night light on a photocell connected fixture that usually underdrives the bulb. It would last years and years until you unplug it and try to plug it back in. By then, it would not light up. I replace with another bulb and took a closer look at the dud. I found the dud one has the filament literally disintegrated.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
