These lamps weren't particularly efficient, if I remember rightly. Anyway, they weren't on the market for all that long. They also tended to fail at the point where the outer envelope met the housing for the additional ballast coil.
This type, which came out much later, were far more efficient. We'll have this as our lamp of the day soon

They did, those things seem to be even harder to get hold of though, the only ones I've seen are going for silly money

(I think you mean Relumina)

Ah I see you fixed it

No. This is a mercury retrofit HPS lamp, with an inductor in the base, to correct the current so it can operate on 125W MV ballast. This is similar to the Relumina.

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.
