Sylvania Double Life Ceiling Fan A15’s

Sylvania Double Life Ceiling Fan A15’s

Looks like Sylvania is stepping up the incandescent quality. Check out the brass bases and the extra thick soft white. I haven’t seen brass bases on USA made lamps since GE’s long life lamps from 10-12 years ago.

Such a highly specific recommended use....what sort of filament structure is inside....can you see it?

Often if you light them on low voltage...c30v and look up through the gap between the coating and base rim, you can see the filament best that way.

Used near a fan I can only think they would be some sort of R.C. lamp able to tolerate the constant vibration and wobbling of the fan.

Which plant are they from....there can't be too many still operating (in the continental United States)...would it be St. Marys, (Pennsylvania) maybe?

Huh...love the Irony....The word, "Pennsylvania" contains the word, "Sylvania"!

Manufactured articles should be made to be used, not made to be sold!

These could potentially be good for those of us that have older lava lamps that take the standard base...some 40 watts that are clear seem to run too hot, will try these if I can find them

The filaments in these are C-shaped with three supports. These bulbs were indeed made in the St. Mary's, PA plant which is still going strong today The plant is transitioning from incandescent production to LED production. Good to see LED's made in my own country!

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Hmm, 3NC filaments....are the supports radial or connical...i.e. is the button in the plane of the "C" with the supports going straight out or is the button below the plane of the "C" with the supports in a cone.....I would guess this latter form before you actually look.

Were these expensive? I would like a sample of these?

I love how the fan on the packaging doesn't even have a light kit.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.

Yep, that's definitely a oversight there, buddy! Also the lumens ratings are inaccurate. The package says 310 lumens and the bulbs themselves say 350 lumens.

These small details...or errors in them, I believe say something. At the plant they are re-tooling for Semiconductor light sources to it is possible less care is being put into these traditional sources than otherwise would be.
