Acquired from last year, this Philips SLE Professional 13W CFL. I had to get it despite it being electronically ballasted and made in PRC because it has the classic width and design of the original SLs

These were originally made at the Philips plant in Terneuzen and so were their electronic "descendants", the "PL" series. So I find it unusual and a little confusing to see the older SL technology, (with damn heavy choke inside) still under production....maybe the statistical reliability of that single heavy choke far exceeds the multiple components of the rectifier, oscillator and series resonant, parallel loaded Z-match in the electronic versions.

All the Terneuzen ones, magnetic or electronic, had the plant and date code stamped into the rim of the base. Have a look at the base rim and see of this is also true for this one....would be interesting to know which plant is has come out of. The most likely one will be MaLu, in Shanghai which has this plant symbol, but it may not be too, because Philips has quite a few high-volume CFL plants elsewhere in China.

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

@ globe collector this is not the magnetic SL variant you allude to, it is in fact the older design but with electronic innards. I have a couple of them and they start up instantly with little or no preheating at all, causing a brief purple flash at the cathodes. I actually suspect these are quite rare as I almost never see them - it’s basically the later magnetic SL design (slightly narrower jar than the original size, they were made in Poland) but with none of the magnetic gear components.
