I found this CFL inside a room lamp someone threw to the curbside. It seems to have seen use and it also appears to have been coated at one point in time.. I like the tube design.

I have some of these in candelabra base. They have a rubber coating that can be peeled off to make the lamp clear. I'm guessing that's what happened here.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

I have a few of these too. The earlier ones has a sort of frosted glass and didn't use a rubber coating like these. I believe the Cree LED lamps also used a similar coating but it tended to peel off. Those used a frosted bulb though so the coating was just for containing glass shards.

IKEA CFLs were made by Megamen. But now IKEA sells only LED.

I"m don't speak English well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I lives in Israel, which is a 230-240V, 50hz country.

I have one of these and I too peeled out the rubber coating, as it was all scratched and decaying. After that the bulb looked a lot better.

Despite being made in China these Megaman bulbs were of reasoneable quality.

Gimme a discharge lamp and a humming ballast Grin

I remember these. They often went mercury starved (Pink) and took ages to warm up

My favourite lamp type is F8T5

This one actually seems to start up similarly to preheat and is only a little bit dim when first on.

Do you guys have any idea how to pop the glass globe off so I can clean the inside out? It is very foggy and there is even a little bit of dirt inside..

Usually those globes are glued in very well. You could maybe try a heat gun to soften up the glue but it's probably best to leave it alone.
