Yeah, I think that they have cathode guards in them. Based on it I use it when its dark outside or I'm cleaning my room or in my room doing something.

Save the Cooper OVWs!! Don't them down by crap LED fixtures!!!

Looks like the china tubes can still be better than the slop that came from usa (just before closure) and of course the indonesia tubes

I had one as well, before I moved. I had 7 HPF Trigger Start desk lamps, at one point. (Modified by me) 4 USA made GE lamps, with the middle
one being the Chinese made lamp. Literally all of the USA GE lamps EOL'd, including the one beside my couch at the time. The
only lamps that survived were my Chinese GE lamp, and my Poland Philips lamp. All T8's, all 15 watts.
So yeah I honestly think those Chinese GE F15T8's seem to be higher quality. Just my opinion.
I video'ed the end result a while back

Interests:
1. Motorcycles, cars, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weightlifting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Lighting has ALWAYS been a passion of mine. I consider everyone on here to be a friend
