Apparently, the European ballast are not immune to leaking tar oozing out of the box

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

The European ballasts don't have tar at all. They are all dry ballasts.

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.

I have seen many burnt Tridonic ballasts. This ballast has quite high fault temperature rise of 145 °C. 70 watt fluorescents are very rare for some reason in here Finland.

Too many things are secret. Only open information can really preserve old technology.

I like fluorescent and other conventional lighting and old electronic equipment. Today's things are not made to last.

The black tar looking chunk is charred insulation varnish. It always collects on the lowest part of the coil and since the coil heats up very much while failing the varnish burns and changes its colour
