Current-Issue GE 150w and 200w

Current-Issue GE 150w and 200w

Click to view full size image

I got these at Sentry in downtown Fairbanks on a whim. I have no real practical use at the moment for a 150w or 200w bulb but who knows how much longer these will be around so I decided I had best stock up. They also had some 300w versions but I didn't get any.

These are late-model Chinese-made ones, but frankly their quality seems quite good. Supported horizontal filaments instead of the floppy vertical ones. They also have soft white versions but the clear ones are a better collection piece to me, from an engineering sample standpoint.

I suppose not quire current-issue since the lumens are not listed on the etch. I like these etches! Wonder if these were good or bad. I know most of their chinese lamps are crap.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

Good point! I just looked at the sleeves, current-design. One does lack the Lighting Facts now that you mention it. Like I said this store has tons of NOS bulbs so these could easily be older than I think.

I also like the etch!

While I was shopping at my local Home Cheapo at the other day, I came across Chinese made 300 Watts bulbs still in unsupported CC-8 vertical position filament. One of the bulb was already broken filament at the center and the other one is really floppy or not the stiffer version as these USA made version.

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

I just saw a Hungarian made 150 watt clear GE for the first time today at the hardware store. It was mixed in with the Chinese made clear bulbs like these. The Hungarian one had a horizontal filament with a center support. I wander why the vertical filaments were discontinued because I think they have slightly better lumen output.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

The vertical unsupported filaments are very fragile. They were probably discontinued for better life. With incandescents most people would rather squeeze that extra bit of life out of the bulb at the expense of less lumens.

Good points! I've always wondered, now I know! That said, I'd still rather those few extra lumens!

Me too since I actually like changing bulbs (I get so bored around the house with these CFLs and LEDs that last forever lol).

I thought I was the only person who would ever say that but I'm glad to know there's others like me!
