Usually around $75 per bulb, as seen on Amazon. There were $10 each here!

Nice lamps! Saw those on eBay too, and I'd been interested in them if they'd been 4000K.

Our Philips ones are 3000K which is just right for us. Regarding the frequency, I would be interested in trying one of these on a 50Hz supply to see how it went. Our 240V ones are marked 50/60Hz which is strange, as I'm not aware of any place that uses 220-240V at 60Hz, are there any..?

By the way we paid 45 euros including shipping to get our two lamps from Germany. Thought that was a reasonable price

If I were using these indoors, 3000K would be best, but I was thinking of exterior use where I like 4000K best.
Interesting...never heard of a 60Hz, 240V systems either.
Sounds like a good deal for those two PARs.

Yeah, but that's for higher current stuff, all your lighting is 120V isn't it, apart from some street lighting etc. I was wondering if there was anywhere in the world that used 220-240V at 60Hz.

I did actually just do a search on line, and it does seem that there are a handful of places, Korea being one..!

That’s odd, I didn’t know that some places had 220V 60HZ. In my area, the street lighting is 120V, and the highway lighting is 240-277V.

Yes...I was thinking of other areas of the world, not North America.

Here in Washington state, highway lighting is single phase 240V, while freeway lighting is single phase 480V. This has all to due with the distance of the runs (voltage drop).

Thanks Everyone ! as for 240v 60hz , Columbus uses everything from 120v, 240v, 277v & 480v for street lighting . The freeways are all 480v but the streets could be just about anything depending on where in the city you are .

It would cool to have, but I'd feel bad about ever actually running it. If these weren't scarce, and were weatherproof they'd be cool to use in PAR floodlights outside.

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

Well they are still pretty easy to get right now and will probably only become more common as old stock is sold off. I'm probably going to use one and preserve one, and on the one I use I'm going to see if I can make the CMH bulb inside replaceable.

The 120V ones may be easy to find, but the 240V ones certainly aren't. I'd like some more but those that are left are way too expensive, I'm not paying £80 + shipping for one lamp

These weren't super popular here and I'd guess they were even less so overseas . If they would have been weatherproof I'd have considered putting them in my outdoor floods .
