That is an interesting 'old school' ballast style.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

yep it is preheat, it has a neon filled starter bottle inside the adapter, you can see it light up through the vent holes as it starts up.

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

Nice find! Over here FUL's are only UV types used in bug zappers. A lot of Grey Import Toyota minivans from Japan here use them in white colour and they are hard to find replacements.

Traffic signals & street lighting engineer. Please bring SOX/LPS back Downunder!!

That is a very interesting lamp assembly! I don't think I have seen a vintage compact fluorescent adapter like that before. My first encounter was the ones from GE with the heavy bases and a Biax type lamp! Gosh I miss those! But very nice find Silverliner!

Love dresses, make-up and just crazy about fluorescent lighting!!  Keep those T12's and magnetic ballasts alive!!

Wow, that is a long assembly. That must stick out of most fixtures!

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

Sadly, I accidentally broke the lamp last year or so. But I have since found an identical replacement.

Cool adapter, so this must have been made by Lights of America before they became Lights of America.
