"Fright Light" fake fluorescent

"Fright Light" fake fluorescent


HauntedProps.com sells this fake fluorescent fixture to make the effect of light with a bad electrical connection or failing fluorescent tubes. Now, since we all know we can create this effect FOR REAL for practically no money with a cheap shoplight and dying tubes rescued from the recycling, can you believe this fixture costs $587???. Here's a video of it in action.

Having a 'controllable' simulated failing fixture actually seems like a neat idea, but I sure wouldn't pay $500 for it. There are many other (cheaper) ways I could create such an effect.

Yeah...the price on that is just ridiculous! Also, it just doesn't seem very realistic. It seems to be a cross between preheat lamp failure and slimline lamp failure at the same time. Maybe I'm just too caught up in detail lol

So how does this thing work and does it use real fluorescent lamps or something like neon?

Nothing like the beautiful cool white light of a coated Mercury Vapor lamp and the soothing hum of it's magnetic ballast.

I think arcblue have been fell a victim to a shopping fraud.
Lighted devices that used for Haloween, shouldn't use hot cathode fluorescent lamps for effects, but ONLY the following lamps: Incandescent lamps, LEDs and CCFLs.
Hot cathode fluorescent lamps aren't desigend for use with blinkers and controling devices for Haloween or Christmas flashing or dimming lights, or they will die within several days to months.
@arcblue: is this video is yours?

I saw that one on YouTube a while back.
The price they want is insane

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

If this Youtube video that arcblue attached to this picture description, wasn't uploaded to Youtube by him, i will declare this video as a spam and as a fraud, and i think that this is actually the case.
Also i think that this picture is actually from this video.
@Update: When i saw this video with sound, i heard sounds of sparks and arcs and buzzes, that shouldn't be heard in reality. therefore, this video is 100% STAGED!!!!
Please move away from this advertisement!!!! This video in youtube is 100% fraud and spam!!!!!!! They want to stell your money!!!!!!! This product is fake!!!!!!!
Update: I marked the video in Youtube as misleading, spam and fraud, based on my findings.
Even another update: They sells this fake fluorescent fixture as a strobe-light??? Fraud!!!!!!

I don't see anything fake or fraudulent about it, it is a model fluorescent fixture use for theatre that uses LEDs and has a speaker that makes sounds, you can even order one, the price is a rip off though.

Say no to Induction & LED, HID forever!

@gailgrove: Sorry, i don't noticed that in their site, they wrote that this is a model fixtures that uses simulated fluorescent lamps, which actually contains nothing then a row of amber LEDs.
In the Youtube video this is seemed to me staged.
However the price is really exaggerated.

I don't own this light, nor is it my photo - sorry for any confusion. It just blew me away to think that a LED special effects light that was made to simulate a failing fluorescent would be so expensive, when you can accomplish the same thing using a real failing fluorescent light for practically nothing. I guess the plus on this is that the effect is predictable and long-lasting, whereas a dying fluorescent doesn't always behave predictably.

I'm lampin...

a simpler way to make this would be to use an FS-2 starter with a 20W choke ballast and a cheap shop-light and use 34W lamps, ive tried it and they will go out and relight every once in a while!

As a former student at school (that made all types of props for theater studies all the time) :

Be friends with school janitor --> infinite supply of EOL lamps and starters of all types ever used at school. Easily get rectifying T12 CW, just like this one, but real and not LED

Dive in trash next to construction site --> find fixture to run them

i know this has been on here a while but i just came across it, and i agree the price is crazy but despite not many of you liking it and it not being a very true representation of a fauty fluorescent, i do like it i think its quite cool and being in an empty dark warehouse with just this on would be kinda creepy - its very much like a hollywood horror but i think its cool - if it were alot cheaper id buy one for a laugh
