Polaroid Rough Service candle incandescent bulbs

Polaroid Rough Service candle incandescent bulbs

Click to view full size image

On mid May of this year I decided to buy some opal coated rough service incandescent candle bulbs for our chandelier in our living room because I don't want to use CFLS because of a dimmer switch and neither Halogen because due to concern of fire hazard.

So these RS incandescents were the answer. Thank goodness the EU permits the use of RS incandescents and i do hope that these bulbs will last a very long time and that the lumen maintenance will be consistent

It seems most bulbs say rough service now, rough service are for work lamps and things so why would you have a candle lamp in a work light, at least it is a good excuse to still sell lovley incandescents.

Great point Beta 5 I was just wondering about that of using candle bulbs as work lights

I think manufactures are trying to keep the incandescent going on

Greenpeace did this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jxBRiWsCoI

They are so "green" = destroying perfectly fine incandescent bulbs and wanting everyone to use CFLs. If you can handle them ok, but there are many people who don't know what to do if the cheap Chinese CFL breaks...
I am not against CFLs but they should be handled "professional" and many people who are not interested in the technique cannot handle them proper (throwing them into normal waste, etc.)

With this campaign, Greenpeace has lost its reputation for me.
And I would love to see the SL*s back in the shops Like a retro edition for CFLs...

Oh my goodness, yes I've been hearing about this vacuum cleaner madness and also they're lowering the heat output of hair dryers

This ban is not practical and just plain daft. We should have a choice

Hair driers now that won't bother me as I have my hair very short or at least the summer months. Are they hoping to kill people off by them catching colds through damp hair....makes you think.

Take my advice get out to all bootsales and pick up all lamps and associated gear for the future, store it safely when your my age it will be worth a Kings ransom If anytime your near Wimbledon on a Wednesday or Saturday come along and see what I mean at that Bootsale in Plough Lane where they race the Doggies but not at the same time!

Oh my! Well they should leave hair dryers alone, powerful vacuum cleaners and our incandescent bulbs

I've got a DYSON vacuum cleaner- wonder how James DYSON is going to tackle that EU ban problem

I think Dyson maybe within those limits but as they intend making them even less I wonder?

Well I think you may be right that they use less power but their advanced digital motors and engineering innovations are making them perform a lot better than ordinary vacuum cleaners

migette1: Yes I've seen the Dyson hand driers (called Airblade dryers) they really push out a lot of air and dry your hands very quickly- gives a similar feeling when you're moving your hands back and forth through a postbox brush if you know what i mean

Apparently Polaroid make flat screen LCD TVs which can be seen in ASDA stores for sale, I've seen on the news that shoppers in parts of the nation had a massive brawl fighting for the Black Friday deals! And most of them were trying to get their hands on Polaroid TVS!!

What craziness

Polaroid is just a trading name after coming out of cameras, so many famous names are being used but they are not a patch on the original product.

Hmm, well as Vicar said to me that this company started producing low quality goods when everyone moved to digital cameras. And btw the Polaroid TVs sold by ASDA's Black Friday deals are not really a good bargain as I think that they will fail in like 1-2 years
