Finally Bulbs Inductive

Finally Bulbs Inductive

Click to view full size image

Got my Finally Bulbs, -- finally. These are inductive electrodeless bulbs ("antenna" inside envelope, small bit of Hg amalgam and a phosphor). 800lm at 14.5w, around 55lm/watt efficiency; they're rated at 2700k but have a very strong pink cast, moreso than any incandescent. 83 CRI is so-so. This seems to be to emphasize "warmth" which is their selling point. They're non-dimmable, and as I showed in the animated gif I uploaded, they claim to be "instant on" but are not. (Instant restrike does seem to be true, but if they're off for 10 minutes, they need to warm up again.) Claim to be incandescent-replacement LED-killers, but with that CRI, tint, and warmup ... not so sure. First inductive I have though, so that's why I got 'em.

I wish light bulb manufacturers would cool it (literally) with the 2700-3000K. Maybe if they would make nicer colours, 4100-5000K, I would actually buy one.

Cree does do 5000k A19 replacement, and I have one of those for my art table... not bad, but I know what you mean. Since the flexibility is there now with the phosphors, they should offer the variety. They're definitely going after incandescent replacements without "culture shock" (I'm not sure Finally hits that mark) but really I'd like to see some flexibility and variety in output too. If LED does go places, (yeah, don't worry, i'm in no way ready to let go of my vintage stuff -- i'll get that up on here soon too) I'd really like to see some selective/adjustable color temperature bulbs. I know Osram has some, but they're pricy and unobtanium as usual.

Most energy-efficient lamps ARE available in higher color temperatures. You can even get a 6000K LED "filament" lamp.

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

Would be good to get induction bulbs at this size and shape in our UK DIY shops (I know that the GE Genura is available on Internet) but it would be great if shops started selling them on their shelves.

Not everyone likes the LED replacement idea so providing induction would be good

I was an early early backer of their project, about a year and a half ago; they had a run of people who were to be "founders" or something by signing up/pre-ordering for delivery in the (at the time) way way distant future.. They really should be shipping mainstream pretty soon,but for now you can pre-order them on their finallybulbs.com website... (I'm not sure how long that'll take... They predicted full production in Spring 2015, but here we are and they still aren't doing full production yet.) However another tactic to take may be writing to them and asking for a sample bulb, saying you're a lighting enthusiast and want to do a quick review (which could be done on here).. I've heard they've sent a few to such people.
