Neon-lighted plug of the adjustable 4/6/8 fluorescent strip light

Neon-lighted plug of the adjustable 4/6/8 fluorescent strip light

ggillis put a VERY heavy-duty cord and plug on the fixture he made me, and the plug actually lights up! It's a green phosphored neon lamp. I love translucent lighted plugs.

Picture of the fixture itself here and it running all three sizes of lamps here.

The thumbnail looks like a greened out merc shining through a yellowed refractor.

Are you sure that ggillis didn't put in a green neon bulb in there and not a green LED? Either way, it's cool that it lights up! Thanks for sharing, that fixture is pretty sweet!

That's stock. I've seen these plugs with green neon in them for sale in Home Depot or Lowes. Forget which one. I've been meaning to pick one up and use it on Beast (GE Powerflood PF1000.)

Why I like LEDs on top of other lighting tech?
LEDs = Upgrade 95% of the applications. (That is if you avoid eBay's LEDs).


LED brainwash? No, people uses them cuz they work well for them.

Wow, could it actually be a green neon lamp? I knew of colored neon lamps, but I didn't know they were ever used in applications like this.

The colour definitely reminds me of a green neon lamp. I've seen green neons in use on the occasional piece of equipment and even blue.

Makes sense being a neon, since it's connected to the mains.

I used to have an air cleaner which had a power LED connected directly to mains through a resistor.

I used to own a clear plastic telephone that had clear and green neon bulbs inside the base and receiver flash when the telephone rang. Was quite neat and the bell on it could wake the dead! Sadly it all of a sudden stopped working for no apparent reason.

I've see green neon lamps many times.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.
