So, since two of the three 8 foot tanning bed lamps I had now are broken, I decided to keep one cathode for myself. Quiet a high glass mount. The filament is really thick too. The filament is triple coil too.

I called it triple coiled, because it has a hard tungsten core INSIDE the filament. I found it out only a few minutes ago as I dissected the filament, pretty odd.

New lighting technologies is a pity fest everywhere you look. From LEDs that last only for two months, to a never-ending global starvation of t8 fluorescent tubes.
