Looks like a cold cathode circuit there.

LED will never beat other lamps. :inc: :hps: :mv:

Cool , I had 2 of these as a kid !! I managed to get a bit of a jolt from one as the lamp housing wasn't making good contact with the electronic/battery portion. I attempted to bend the brass contacts up a bit . WELL , I quickly discovered the switch was in the "ON" position when the energized brass contacts began to burn the skin under my fingernails ! The smell of burning flesh was unforgettable !

This sounds terrifying. I had more luck as a kid. I often "extended" by wiring the reflector part with the tube to used remotely somewhere else. Its a wonder I've never got a shock from it There is also absolute no warning inside the lamp of on the package regarding the high voltage. Something like this maybe was also already in the 80's kind of "illegal"...

It got my attention in a hurry ! I always removed the batteries after that before I played with anything inside .

Wow... 4 D batteries for just one F4T5 lamp? With a reflector? This thing must be pretty bright. All F4T5 lamps I had when
I was a kid were 2 lamp versions.
Another thing: EOL shows were actually pretty interesting with fluorescent lanterns. Especially the rechargeable ones.

Interests:
1. Motorcycles, cars, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weightlifting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Lighting has ALWAYS been a passion of mine. I consider everyone on here to be a friend
