Well this one didn't make it back home. Not that I could've used it anyways in the U.S, but this was one of my first collected lights I bought long ago in France. The tube still lights even though it looks like it lost vacuum/got its powder blown off.

Luckily I had two, the other one survived. Hooked it up to freedom volts just for kicks, nothing happened, back in the box they go.

All you need is a transformer with two 120v windings on it rated at about 100VA or more. Series, (In-Phase) the two 120v windings, place the U.S. supply across one and place this across both in series...and Volia! one lit SL-25!

(i.e. an autotransformer)

The black ones are piss easy to pull open but these white ones are almost impossible without destroying the shade sadly. I had one years ago that starter got stuck, i was trying to open it patiently for hours and hours on end i never did get it open so i cracked the glass

I pulled two of the Polish ones apart because this brown condensate from the choke had marred the inside of the diffuser jar. I had to break the jar on one*** and the white polymer cowling on the other to get its jar off, intact. I then cleaned the jar and clipped it back on the other lamp....so, yes, "wrecked" two to make one good one.


*** The jar was so hard to break I ended up heating it with the MAPP Gas torch and spraying water on it to thermally shock it into breaking as hitting it with the side of the bull-nose pliers would have broken the tube inside.
