General Electric 40 Watts A15 Halogen Burned Out

General Electric 40 Watts A15 Halogen Burned Out

Click to view full size image

Yesterday morning (2014-4-14) this bulb installed in our garage door opener burned out. I replaced with this Sears DieHard Garage Door Opener Light Bulb. Ironically, the 1990's vintage Commonwealth Edison 41 Watts bulb is still going with not much sagging. The said vintage bulb has C-6 with no support filament.

I've seen this happen with these GE halogens before, where the filament sagged until it touched the wall of the quartz tube. I'd guess these are better off burning base up or base down. I put an Ecosmart LED in our garage door opener after the incandescent that was there burned out. I think it will last a long time since LEDs are immune to vibration and frequent switching.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

If this incandescent halogen burn base up or down, it would sag anyway. I still have the Philips Clear Classic 60 Watts Halogen√° at my bathroom lights (on the left) still going with the filament sagging

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
