New old stock adapter + lamp from Philips. The choke ballast slides off so the adapter can be fitted in a table lamp or other tight places; it is connected by two tiny pins. I assumed it is open circuit without the ballast connected, but haven't tested that :) especially not with this nice Philips tube. The base is a ratcheting type. Lamp date code is A5 (1985?)

Interesting! I see no reason why it would't be open circuit. Remember, electricity takes the path of least resistance so if it was that way it'd always bypass the choke and fry the tube. At least that's my assumption. I am NOT an electrical engineer.

One of the few good Philips products. I've always had good luck with these lamps.

Preheat and T-12 fluorescents forever! Down with LED's and instant start T-8 fluorescents.
