Generic F15T8 Warm White in GE Fixture

Generic F15T8 Warm White in GE Fixture


GE was really pinching pennies here by putting these cheap Chinese made lamps in their fixtures instead of their own name brand lamps. I pulled this one out and replaced it with one of my better quality Philips Altos. This lamp will work as a spare sometime, but I'm not sure if it will last long. The warm white light is pleasant.

Weird that GE doesn’t put their branded lamps in their fixtures. I also use Philips Altos and they are great quality!

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, except LED.

Philips ALTOs are the best fluorescent lamps right now!

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.

General Electric licensed out their home fixtures back in the early 2000s. I came across and purchased the last true General Electric unit at my Home Depot back in 2008. Even those were manufactured by a third party for GE, but nowadays they are merely licensed by GE, so General Electric has little involvement besides slapping their name on the label. From what I recall, the metal units lost the external starter socket (switching to a hard-wired starter), and also moved to generic lamps. There was also a line of metal fixtures with electronic ballasts. The basic plastic fixtures used to be preheat with hardwired starter bottles, then moved to electronic.

I have a few of newer GE branded undercabinet fixtures but were actually licensed to a company called Jasco that are from 2007-2008. I have a couple of metal F8T5 lights that used an electronic ballast and a couple of the plastic ones that had a barebones electronic ballast.

I think the only true GE home fixtures I have are a couple of GE brightstik fluorescents...I last saw them in stores around 2009, probably old stock by that point.

When I read the fine print, this fixture was made by Jasco for GE. Jasco also makes other household lighting products including many of GE's night lights.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

Stop the lamp bans!
