120W Spotlamp Premature Failure

120W Spotlamp Premature Failure

Click to view full size image

This is a new old stock GE 120 watt Watt Miser spotlamp. I don't know how long it lasted but it was less than a week. I installed it in an outdoor enclosed floodlight fixture and came back this week to check on things and found that it had cracked during use! My guess is that it had a hairline crack or some stress on the glass and when it heated up -- crack! It failed.
