General Electric 68W CFL Powr/Flood.
OK...this obviously isn't original. I got this flood for free, and it had been previously converted. Flood contains a TCP 28968H CFL lamp with mogul base. I've had this lit, and it performs quite well in the optics - just like a coated HID lamp, and the CFL is supposed to be an equivalent to a 300W incandescent. I'm thinking of converting this back to HID using either a 250W or 400W MV (MH) ballast kit at some point. (Fixture was originally 400W HPS.)

Looks like a former HID floodlight, that has been converted to CFL.

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.

Original ballast been removed or still in place but disconnected? Still a nice find!

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

Original ballast is MIA.

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

Have you seen the one on Ebay that has been listed and relisted for quite a while? Ebay # 352697243277. It is local pick up only is probably the reason it has not sold.

One of my neighbors house have two of that on a pole in HPS. I haven't seen them run in quite a long time though.

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

Nice! I vote for 400W MH/MV.

BTW, this one on Ebay is the older 1960s version. To open that one you take the lid off the top. The one above, you take the back off to open it. Really interesting design these are.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.
