Me With My New Philips 2000 Watt Halogen

Me With My New Philips 2000 Watt Halogen

Click to view full size image

Here I am with my new Philips 2000 watt halogen lamp. The heat this big guy puts out is unbelievable! Much welcome heat, too considering its about to be snowy and a few degrees below 0 here in Albany this weekend. I could feel my room heating up quickly as I took this picture. The light emitted is whiter that it appears due to the strain on my iPhone camera.

50,000 lumens of pure white halogen light is a beautiful thing! I would love to have a practical use or a real fixture for one of these awesome double envelope halogen lamps someday.

How did you power this? Air conditioner outlet?

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I use a MSKJ step up & down transformer. Model number ST-2000VA. It takes the 120 volt power from the outlet and steps it up to 240 volts for anything plugged in.

Hello Camden, nice to see your face, particularly lit this way....Love the sunnies! Definitely need them at this close range.

I think there must be at least some UV-A flux because your teeth are fluorescing, they look really WHITE, their corrected colour temperature is higher than the lamp's!


Geez, that poor 120v NEMA Outlet, isn't their maximum 15A, and this is 16A!

This will briefly chase away those "Winter Blues" in Carolina at this time of year!

Cheers, from Andrew in Tasmania.

This lamp produces the same amount of IR, as an 2000W radiant heater.

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.

@rjluna2, nearly all houses and basic businesses in USA have 240v service entrances and 240v power available at the main panel. Most only use the 240v power for bigger loads like well pumps, air conditioning, clothes dryers, electric stoves and electric water heaters.

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

Shouldn't you be wearing a welders shield? Or at least welders goggles? There's gotta be some heat there...where's the sun screen? Anyway, nice lamp you got there!

Your mission - should you choose to except it - is to save unique and rare HID lighting before it's all scrapped.
