This Hungarian-made GE lamp has been in one of my wall pack fixtures for about 4 years so lasted about the typical 16,000 hrs rated life. I didn't see it fail but it wasn't lit one night and I suspected the ignitor had gone bad, but it actually was a failed lamp. There was just a dim flashing in the arc tube from the ignitor. The lamp was burning base up and there us blackening on the cap end as well as a blackened but intact arc tube. Maybe arc tube seal failure? The lamp won't light even on an 1000w HPS ballast and the outer bulb glows bright pink/orange when the lamp is microwaved. The lamp has burned slightly pinkish for many years. It never cycled before it failed.
