Killerwatt 22w circline unit with original '77 GE lamp

Killerwatt 22w circline unit with original '77 GE lamp

Click to view full size image

Restore find 10/3/12. Now I have found a Killerwatt 22w unit after getting a couple 20w units earlier at a different Restore. I had an issue with this lamp it wouldnt light, turned out the starter was shot. Now it works fine! The GE warm white lamp is from 4/77, it still has the old style ceramic base which I didnt know was made that late (but Sylvania circlines still had them in '78).

Nice retrofit Adaptor. The first version of 2 part CFL, lol. I am wondering if they made a two 22W lamp version?

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

@imj, what the HELL?! This is not typical "throw away" junk and many of us LOVE well made tubes/fittings/gear.

LOL. The tube is one month younger than me. Is it really old? I am afraid - yes. It‘s time for mid life crisis.

@IMJ this is an OLD one from 1977, sturdy and top quality as others said. Thats why it's here. Can't you appreciate good vintage stuff?

Quote from imj: "boring lamp.....I seen tons of 22w everywhere. This site is so boring I want to fall asleep..ZZzzzz."

IMJ, if that's the case, then go ahead and fall asleep...and I'll delete your membership...how about THEM apples?!? (I'm only half-joking, of course...)

Remember the old adage..."if you don't have something nice to say, don't say anything at all." Or at least, don't be snide in your commentary.

Everyone is entitled to his/her opinion, but that was not a nice thing to say.

Yes that porcelain base was typical on 1970s and earlier American circlines.
