I found this at the ReStore in Mason City, Iowa. They were based on the krypton filled Westinghouse Superbulb, but with twice the rated life.

Nice find! Looks like a hybrid between an A19 and a BT15 envelope. Looks like it's built to last with the brass base.

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

Always liked the Sears/Philips (Westinghouse) lamps...always unique.

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

Wow! Amazing how long they could make them last compared to a regular incandescent. We used to use bulbs similar to that in the kitchen light growing up as it was a pain getting the light down. They were not rated at anywhere near 6,000 hours though.

Just goes to show that they can build a decent incandescent...if they wish to.

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

Know what's interesting? There was never a Philips branded Super Bulb. It was discontinued shortly after the Philips takeover. But Philips continued to make this Diehard lamp for Sears, see it even got the factory symbol? That symbol means it was made at the Owensboro, Kentucky plant, which closed in 1987. It was originally a Ken-Rad plant.

May all the great lighting technologies have their place in history.
