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.

1000 watt HPS ballast strikes again?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

I think that you are a pyro at heart!

Your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.

Good way to finish off an EOL lamp

That should also go YouTube!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

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.

That is so funny

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.
