Even though they don't have the fixtures, but they still have the bulbs, and that LED retrofit bulb too...

These Brinks lamps will surely convince any homeowner to replace their HID with an LED if they haven't already done so.

Probably, if they brought the LED Retrofit bulb, expect a failure soon....

Sure, they still sell them. But they’re total rubbish. I’ll never risk ruining a nice vintage ballast with one of these.

You sure this is good news? All I see is cheaply made Chinese junk. If you want quality, NOS on eBay is where its at.

I mostly use eBay as well. Most of these “Brinks” lamps are cheaply made Chinese junk with short lifespans and out of spec arc tubes with tiny electrodes.

I like all kinds of lighting and electrical, except for LED, which I classify as a disease.

I went to Walmart today and noticed all of these Brinks stuff on clearance. The mercury lamp was $3.50 I think and the photocell was $2.50. I thought about getting one of the photocells to use if I need to use something outside and don't want to mess a good photocell. But ultimately, I decide not to.

If you have anything that uses the PCs, I would grab those. I grabbed a few of them when they were $1-2 a piece at the Restore. I've converted most of mine to shorting caps as they were cheaper than buying real shorting caps. You just pop the cover off and put some electrical tape over the photoeye.

Easily reversible too should you desire to use them as a PC again.

Thats no surprise. There will be nothing left other than LED everywhere before 2025 is my prediction.

Good deal on those photocells though i like the bulkier old school ones better lol

Yep. I think most likely because Walmart doesn't sell HID fixtures anymore, plus they're going more to LED.

Welp, go figure.... I bet you Lowe's is gonna do the same thing, and they might clearance out their Lithonia HID fixtures, because apparently people switching to LED.

So, nowadays, "good news" is when products made in a Communist country that actually has internment camps in the 21st century and censors all of its citizens, are available on a shelf in a free country?

So basically, this is to get people into LED when they use bad lamps? Just saying...

It's possible, but i think they are just a stop gap , intended to satisfy the few holdouts who still haven't changed their lights. The low sales volume means they have to cheap out to still make a buck. But even China will want to get in on the LEDs so makers out there will also switch to making LEDs instead. Theres just more money and demand for them sadly.

Not to get into politics, but I truly blame the Democrats and the utility companies for making the "green movement" and raising electricity rates for people to switch from non-LED light sources...

Ok, let's not start.

There is greed all around for sure. Hydro one in my province wants to charge 20.8 cents per Kwh for on peak use when the covid 19 measures that currently give us 12.8c kwh all day comes to an end.

Yup. Companies that peddle Communist Chinese products (Brinks, WTF?!?!? more on that later) are more than happy to sell you stacks on stacks of garbage product. Consumers will blindly continue to buy, consumers are being conditioned to accept the "new reality" meaning they don't expect long lasting durability, they expect to be able to keep buying and not using critical thinking.

Speaking of "Brinks" what. the. heck. Since when did anybody look to a money delivery firm for light bulbs? Ridiculous.

There are so many people getting rich peddling garbage under somewhat "familiar" brand names these days (Westinghouse, anyone?)
I think the current social unrest is totally missing the whole point. I may actually join riots (er, I mean "peaceful protests"!) if they were done in the name of ridding our society of cheap,landfill-busting garbage.

Yeah I still find it funny that they chose to brand these with Brinks. Seems the importer is actually Hampton products which is a lock company.

Yeah Westinghouse is another one and here in Canada the NOMA brand known for the Christmas lights way back is now a brand owned by Canadian Tire and is applied to their imported Christmas lights, light bulbs, extension cords etc.

I'll admit I sometimes do buy cheapo lamps but more for using instead of collecting. Vintage lamps are harder to come by in Canada so any light I have outside usually gets the cheap or modern stuff.

I do the same. Right now I have a Chinese made GE F15T8 in my F15T8 fixture and its still going. However end marks are starting to show up.

I do the same, but with HID lamps I try to get ones that are at least decent, like GE Lucalox or Sylvania mercury lamps, or even better EYE. These Brinks lamps I heard bad things about so I don't think I would trust them.

My guess for using the Brinks name, is it's related to things like safes and security systems, so I think that's why Walmart used their name on their security lighting. Now it all seems to be Honeywell branded.

Those Brinks HID lamps must be as tough as an armored car! They might even light up for a few months!

I've noticed a few homeowners that removed their mercury yard lights after a relamping or two with modern junk like this that didn't last even a year. Nobody wants to keep spending money and getting the ladder out when the whole idea of mercury dusk-to-dawn lighting was long life. So...more fixtures get ditched in favor of LED.

I remember a decade ago or so, an older gentleman was asking the cashier in a grocery store about trying to find a mercury vapor bulb for his yard light. They used to sell them at that store. I had to pipe up and I told him I would sell him one cheap and had both deluxe white and clear ones...and that the newer lamps are no good and won't last long. I gave him my phone number and he seemed very appreciative, but I never heard from him.

I'm lampin...
