Size comparision between 26W SOX-E and 60W incandescent lamp.
There is also the packaging of the SOX, however the bulb is not new, it seems it has been well used when I got it like this along with my Philips MI 26 lantern.

Nice! I recently got my first SOX lamp from member icefoglights and a socket for it from member kevxsi16v, so I need to rig a way to fire it up since I do not yet have the proper ballast.

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

You do infact have a new lamp there, you can tell by the cathodes.
Forget the blackness around them, and look at the cathode emitter, (the white powder that coats them), this tells me thats a fairly new lamp.
Nice lantern, the Philips MI were good quality

That's interesting, LinearSLI/H! The problem with this bulb is that it flickers and people on YouTube told me it's probably because the bulb is near EOL because of the heavily blackened cathode areas. So the amount of "cathode area blackness" is not necessarily and indicator of the age of a SOX?

Its very rare for a Philips lamp to go realy black at EOL, they tend to go more of a sandy colour around the cathodes.
I have a box of 18watt Philips sox that I use on my outside lighting, some of them have not even been lit yet and are blacker than yours!!! , this is just where there tested when made.
A used Philips lamp will have sandy coloured bands around the cathodes, but you will also see the coils of the cathodes, when all the emitter has been used.

My E26W Philips lamp flickers in my MI26 as well. I'm beginning to wonder if it's just a "thing" these lamps do, although mine looks like it might be EOL as its cloudy towards the ends. I might have to relamp the wretched thing. Needs some work all over to be honest, so it's a good opportunity to do it.
