Ecosmart 5w Compact Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps

Ecosmart 5w Compact Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps

Found 4 of these almost a year ago, however, one of them decided it wanted to be a 40w CFL, which ended up killing it almost instantly. Also, two of these lamps start off a bright red when fired up, before warming up and becoming soft white.

Looks like the lamps are contaminated. Check the spectrum of the lamp, when they are red.

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.

Wouldn't a contaminated lamp draw more current? as all three lamps draw 5w each when tested.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

One decided to be a 40 watt? What do you mean?
But yeah my family had these back in the day. I forget the wattage. I made a video about it a long time ago!

Something shorted out, causing it to draw 40+ watts before failing.

That’s weird that one drew 40W. Nice CCFL lamps!

Eventually one failed at my families place as well. I wonder if the same thing happened with theirs?
Also, those ones were dimmable.
