Philips 9 Watt Earth Light CFL

Philips 9 Watt Earth Light CFL

Click to view full size image

Here's my first eBay find of the new year. This is a Philips CFL that is made in Holland and designed to replace a 25 watt incandescent. At 430 lumens, it's a little bright for a 25 watt replacement, but makes a good 40 watt replacement.

This lamp is excellent quality, being made in Holland before CFL's were mass produced with quantity over quality in China. I'm excited about the 10,000 hour life rating, so I won't have any qualms about using this NOS bulb occasionally. The ballast is large compared to the size of the four tubes, and the whole lamp is about the length of an A21 incandescent bulb. There is a tiny "6F" etched into the metal base that might be a date code, perhaps June 1996.

I remember these. They were quite pricey at the time and look funny with the ballast compartment almost larger than the quad tubes, but that was to make the profile narrower than the PL-C + magnetic ballast adapter which didn't fit in many fixtures.

I'm lampin...

The factory code is probably an upside down V for Terneuzen, Netherlands. All of mine were made there. This was made June 1996.

Old school FTW!

I like the bulb because it's shape
Most CFLs have more curves, this one looks mainly rectangular, I think the only cirular things on here would be some compents from the ballast ant the "tubes"
Why I quote Tubes. We say tubes even though there is only one
