Halogen semi violent EOL

Halogen semi violent EOL

Click to view full size image

I have a GU 10 fixture over the bathroom sink with 4 lamps. The other day, as I was shaving after my shower (which means the lamp was hot) it made a pop sound and went dark. I have only gotten around to change it last night. I guess the halogen capsule cracked where the hot metal was and the pressure from the inside threw a molten metal bit. It cooled into the metal thread that you can see behind the glass.

That is a strange EOL for a GU-10 halogen bulb.

Good that it wasn't exploded.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

Yes, it is a strange EOL. I have seen some bulged capsules if the lamp burns out when lit for a while but never something like this.

I must have a bad batch of these at the moment (not this one, however) because some have a dancing filament. Very annoying flicker.

I had a 50 watt GU10 with a dancing filament. I agree, the flicker is very annoying.

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.
