Forcing EOL metal halide lamp to go nuclear

Forcing EOL metal halide lamp to go nuclear


I blew up several EOL lamps that wouldn't ignite on their normal gear. They certainly ignited here.

Holy crap! That was a nice pop. You'd probably not want to breathe anything vaporized that comes out though. Why did you do this on a roof?

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Judging from all of the shrapnel on the roof BEFORE it went bye-bye I'd assume this wasn't the 1'st one either !

How long did this take from initial start to confetti ?

I can appreciate the abstract approach: 'They certainly ignited here', lol

Sometimes it just takes voltage, current. Lots of current. Lots of voltage. We shall teach stubborn EOL lamps a lesson, even if we have to launch them into the sun, imo.

They took about 30 seconds to warm up to beyond full brightness. And another 5 to go bang lol.

Westinghouse Lifeguard will always be my favorite lamp
Gotta love vintage HIDs!
