The Osram Dulux EL Economy 21/840, in my hostel

The Osram Dulux EL Economy 21/840, in my hostel


I bought it to my hostel, together with the Tadiran 40W candle lamp from my art teacher house. This lamp is heavily blackened, and I think that it is near EOL.

As you have a look at this CFL, then you recognize that sometimes it's very strange about blackening of these little CFLs. May be - or better said, probably - your Dulux EL still has some 1000 hours of life left.

I'm willing to bet it has less than 1000 hours left. I'm not sure if it was the camera adjusting to the light, but
I may have seen a little bit of hotspot movement. Not sure.
I will say that I have definitely seen these lamps before as a kid at the grocery store Schnucks. This was
way, way back in like 2001, or maybe 2002.
The EOL they did was strange... they would flicker dimly much like with Rapid Start ballasts. Up to this day
I still wonder about that.

1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Yep
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend

Here is an EOL of an Osram Duluxstar 8W/827 I had. I think this lamp will have the same EOL, with filament fusing.

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.

@Dor123, Yup... I definitely remember that video from a while back. I'm not sure whether this lamp has filament fusing though,
but at the same time, I'm not sure whether this lamp contains the same components as the ones I saw in use in stores.
Absolutely 100% looks exactly like they did though.

Osram CFLs have filament fusing. Your Dulux EL, are different. Here, only generic Chinese crap CFLs like Luxten or Leelite don't continue to burn to vacuum loss.
