This is the more incredible lamp ever!

This is the coolest bulb I've seen in my entire lifetime

Someone please donate-me US$599,00 so I can order one on Ebay

Wow! This is the mother of all GE Miser lamps! The shift in colors is amazing from peach, to greenish, and finally to soft white. I would love to have these illuminating my house

I can see an incandescent filament in the top row at the beginning of warmup. What a fascinating lamp!

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Nice capture! It's beautiful (and I want one too) but I can see why it didn't catch on. Still...the warm up is quicker than some of the enclosed spiral CFLs.

I once had a 32w Halarc ED17 lamp that has the same arc tube as this lamp though I gave it to another collector as I didn't have gear for it.

I'm lampin...

Really cool lamps! I wonder if they were manufactured at the Ravenna, OH plant where the other metal halide lamps were manufactured?

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.

According to Lamptech they were made at NELA Piloting, Cleveland, OH, not sure if that's the same place or somewhere near..?

Yes. To provide instant light, as well as to provide intermediate light when the arctube is cooling down for hot restrike, and to make the ballast simpler by removing few chokes. The filament is connected in parallel to the arctube, so it isn't overdriven during lamp run-up, and remains at the same brightness all the way to full output of the arctube.

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.
