Cool!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

It runs up very fast.
Strange that there is a 120hz flickering, considering that it have an integrated electronic ballast.
The filament intended to replace several chokes in the ballast, thus make it simple.

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.

Awesome video! This is a true treasure of a lamp

I hope I'm fortunate enough to find one of these Miser Maxilights someday.

Same here, but from what I read on Lamptech they weren't popular and so weren't made for very long, so they may be a little hard to find

They were very expensive, and suffered from flickering as you can see in this video.

These are indeed cool lamps. I'd like to get one some day, but I'm not giving $600 USD for it!

The retail version is generally priced in the $100s or $200s, when it's available.

I've been wondering what these looked like during start up for YEARS... so thanks man for posting.
I'm with Dor123 though... why does it have a 120 hertz flicker? Isn't it electronic?

Amazing to see one of these start and run, what I find incredible about this, we all consider these tiny automotive halide as state of the art today, and GE were building them in the late 70s!!

Current: UK 230V, 50Hz
Power provider: e.on energy
Street lighting in our town: Philips UniStreet LED

It's just a pity they never really took off, they were overtaken by CFL's which were cheaper and probably a lot easier to produce. Would love to find one some day
