The ballast wont like it, but these do have magnetic tridonic ballasts so they are good quality.

Ah yes this is a particular thing which landlords and non electrically trained people fail to realise that ballasts hate EOL bulbs. I hope it will be replaced with a new bulb shortly

What is the difference with tridonic magnetic ballasts from ordinary magnetic ballasts apart from the quality

Nothing much, Philips ballasts are good too.
In a friends flat block they kept fitting 28w 2D in 16w fixtures so there were a lot of lights out, as they wouldn't start.

Oh my goodness that must be overdriving the ballast, the 28W bulb in a 16w rated ballast bet the starter will wear out, is it argon starter or electronic starter because the buzzzz sound is associated with electronic starters

Hmm bet the landlord wanted to increase the light output and does the flat corridors where your friend's flat is, have the exact fixtures shown here

No they were round ones ment for 16w but could fit 28w for different ballast.

I told the cleaners who change bulbs that they were for 16w tubes when I was at my friends but they didn't put the correct lamps in.

so they are still killing the ballasts and there is not much light in the night.

Cleaners don't know about electronics that much and is it them who are responsible for the lamp changing/replacement

Not much light in the night doesn't sound too good but anyhow what colour temperature are the 2D bulbs is it?

Aha typical whitish fluroesant colour, most popular for corridor lighting

So what type of lighting does your friend has inside his flat btw

No I did not because I don't live in one of these flats. I'm sure it will get fixed soon when it gets noticed by the landlord's flat maintenance checkup

Well I'm not too sure because I don't know what happens behind the scenes of this block of flats

Btw the 2D lanterns are actually on during the daytime, and there's enough light coming through the windows

The old London flats used to be lit with pearl Rough Service bulbs, the caretaker, who will be nameless, supplied all the fish keepers of the time with these lamps as they could be used above the tanks and as they did not get too hot they did note break going back a very long time lots of these flats been pulled down now.

Ah I see, very interesting kinda makes sense for using RS bulbs on fish tank lamps- it's less hotter compared to ordinary incandescents

Why were the London flats pulled down

These flats but not all had dark areas where muggings took place drug taking and the lifts (elevators) were always smelling of urine as the were used as toilets not nice places and one block called Ronan point had a gas explosion which blew the side off and that was why gas was not supplied on electric for cooking, This was the old LCC London County Council

Ah I see, oh my goodness, I think that's why most flats these days have electric stoves instead of gas because of the explosion that happened. Sounds like a pretty dodgy atmosphere, I would not want to live at these flats

Thanks Peter, that was the bad side of things, look up Ronan point on Google sure they will mention it. I never lived in flats either would have missed not having a garden.

Yes that's the downside of living in the flat, you do not have a garden. And modern recently built houses on the market have smaller gardens compared to older houses like mine which is 1950s

I shall look up Ronan point on google

UPDATE: this same ol lantern is still not fixed and we are now in late December

Also today earlier I saw ANOTHER FH moonlight lantern in the same position as this one which was located on the flat corridor floor where my cousin's flat is

In this pic, that is the flat corridor level below my cousin's flat
