Yeah unfortunately gotta have deep pockets for this. Kicking myself because before july a local distributor was selling the 55w lamps for about $45. I should have dived right in

Nice! You've gotten quite a bit of 18w lamps now. I considered getting a case but the cost of the lamps was a bit much and I already have 5 SOX 18 lamps anyway. I would have gotten one shipped close to the border and picked up the lamps myself though to save on shipping.

It was expensive, especially considering the Cad to Usd but I caved anyway as I have two wallpacks that take these so thats 7 lamps per fixture. I plan to keep one of the lamps out of service to have as a working display, probably one of the white carton ones or the belgium made one.

I'm hoping a bit that I managed to score more 18w lamps at the Restore and then maybe see if I can get more 55w lamps. The conversion from CAD to USD also put me off buying a full case too. I still only have 1 18w SOX fixture so I think 5 lamps is a good number to have.

Needless to say I'll buy any SOX lamp I see at Restore for a reasonable price.

Even if each of those last only two years, now you're set for the next 30 years

I'm nervous about the lifespan of my lamps. I know the norelco branded brown capped lamps will probably last past their rated life (?) but I'm unsure about the more modern red capped lamps I have.

I have two modern lamps with the blue and black carton. Then I have two very modern ones from the 2010's

Here, that's always a hit & miss thing. Sometimes they sting you for loads of money, sometimes they don't, you never know
