Well, I also had some hesitations about the quality, but after seing it in detail my question marks about quality have been disappeared. Since the canopy of the lantern is made of die cast al it should have to last long. The optical unit is first class. Adonised. And it is also adjustable. The ballast compartment is not really different in quality from Iridium. The ballast and the ignitor are real Philips made. The weakest part seems to be the hinge for the bowl but if u keep it good there wont be any problem. So this lantern from my point is well made in traditional Philips quality. Yes it looks different to our eyes but we will get used to such different shapes.

No doubt about the bowl! I guess it is made of Polycarbonat ( PC ) which is UV resistant and vandal proof. The weakest point of this latern is the gearplate- which is made of plastic or GRP like!? Right?

Likewise in Traffic Vision, Malaga and the lids for the gear plate of Iridium yes. It is made of GRP. I hope it is resistant enough to heat Btw this lantern is not cheap..

Yes It is resistent to heat but what about the ballast? I mean a ballast fixed to a metal frame or - plate runs always cooler and safer than on a plastic board. That's why I don't like plastic on a streetlight latern.

I see a lot of fish tank ballasts in plastic enclosures. Almost all of them are badly discoloured in the ballast area, and most of the ballasts inside are a brown mess, with the white paint mostly burnt off into a powdery residue. Most fail after around 2 years, and need replacing along with the lamp. Mine were placed inside a metal box ( old scrapped Arcnet switch, used the power switch, cable inlet and power switch again) and attached to the metal base with a thin smear of heatsink compound to aid heat transfer.
