That's what I was talking about in your pic of the Sylvania power-reducing tubes. Pretty genius idea since RS is in series. I wonder if these could ever "burn out"?

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

I doubt they would. They would out last any led

T12/ t17 there's a reason they made heavy magnetic ballasts

I wonder the same thing. I think eventually the capacitor could degrade but that's about it.

Only thing I can see is the wire inside could break over time if to much vibration.

Back in early teen years in early 90s
I went to chuches chicken down the
Street from me, looked up. Go
Why is this tube not making any light
They i stair at it for 5 mins saw the
Cap inside and long wire in a glass tube
From what I find was a that a Cap in it pkace
To reduce lamp current abit so it would not
Overdrive the other tubes.

Also it same Idea with Thriftmate from syvania
With it extra choke and a cap to drive the F40 at about 25 watts.

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.
