Are they buying endocaps from Sylvania now? I figured maybe they were just buying Sylvania or Philips lamps anymore. The new etches are hideous...

They say made by GE. I have some Hungarian made F15T12 kitchen and bath I bought in 2007 that have these endcaps. I like the caps but also think the etches are awful.

Keep government out of the lighting industry.

I always thought those F15/KB were Sylvania made. Got a photo of their etch? The ones I have have that vertical number date code characteristic of Sylvania. The current GE F15s are made by Philips in Mexico but occasionally true GEs can still be found NOS at stores.

I thought that GE bought action tungsram in Hungary. I think maybe that's where those endcaps come from. They are different than Sylvania endcaps.

I too have a pair of GE F14T12/K&B made by Sylvania (with the Sylvania daye code) in Mexico. These endcaps are different.

You might be right. There have also been some batches in recent years of SuperSaver 34w that had Lifeline style end caps. I think the Hungary thing sounds plausible, as these end caps and etches look Eupropean in nature overall to me, probably derived closely from the lamps they produce for their own domestic market. Especially stuff like "F40Wxxx" type order codes.

I wonder if they are electrically any different in that case?

They appear to start normally on a 1977 advance rapid start ballast. Those F40CW export lamps I got have the same endcaps.
