So, so many powertwists...

Since the original Duro-test box I got was badly damaged, I had to take out all tubes and restore the box. As I took out the last tube I got up and looked at all those powertwists... It felt kinda iconic.. I live in Lithuania for God's sake :-D This feel so weird and unnatural seeing this many iconic American tubes in a post-slavic country...

That's a heck of a great find!

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Yup. All 19 are vita-lite 5500k

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
We shall reinforce ourselves with good old full mercury t12s and HIDs made to surpass one's life, and give them all the middle finger ;

Nice haul! In Switzerland I have never seen any Vita-Lite, but here you find a color called „True-Lite“, this could be the same with another description...

Well, of course I say vita-lite, but actually, these are indeed True-lite, instead of vita-lite. My mistake. I am just so used to saying vita-lite when I have in mind full spectrum 5500k On the tube it dryly states "true-lite plus" In need to be more observant.

and btw, wasn't you the guy who found a motherload of USA powergrooves t17 tubes in Switzerland?

True-Lite was the export name for Vita-Lite, so yes, you are right.
