Here she is, Bought this today in B&Q warehouse And i thought B&Q had stopped selling them, its gonna go the opposite end of my very old T5 fixture that been in my bedroom scine the mid 90s, and replace the crap Electronic one i have up.

The starter now is not inside and under the metal case, its on the side of the fixture so much more easier replacing it.

I've had a couple of these fixtures before, they are actually not that bad considering they are Chinese.

at the label on the wrapper - CAUTION! GLASS - just in case you don't notice the glass tube (Reminds me of when I saw a packet of Roasted Nuts that had a warning on it that it contained nuts!)

This is great, I don't suppose B&Q had any 4w fittings did they? I'd love a 4w!

Not in Preheat though, but had smaller tubes. but i think it was only electronic. >>> http://www.diy.com/diy/jsp/bq/nav.jsp?action=detail&fh_secondid=9293542&fh_view_size=10&fh_location=%2f%2fcatalog01%2fen_GB&fh_search=Fluorescent+&fh_eds=%C3%9F&fh_refview=search&ts=1274377248963&isSearch=true This looks like a nice fixture

Those ones would look good under one of my shelves!

I'm after collecting miniature switchstart battens for 4W and 8W, I already have a 6W lamp which is awesome. There's loads of neat tricks that can be done with these like if you live in a 220/240V country then you can try wrapping some thin wire around the pins of a dead tube and running your hand along the tube to strike it and chances are it will work again for a few days.

Wow, I've never tried it on 5 foot. I've found that the longer tubes are hard to strike with only one filament being heated but I have got a 4 foot T12 that is jet black up one end and still works this way.

It shouldn't harm the ballast unless you use an electronic one, cheap electronic ballasts often rely on the filaments to stop the ballast overheating when the tube fails. If you short out a filament or both filaments then they go with a pop when the tube fails and never work again

Edit:

Do you have a youtube account? I'd love to see this lamp starting and any other lamps you might have

I had a butchers in B&Q, they had a box full of these fluorescent fittings in there amongst various other switch start and high frequency battens. I didn't get one at the moment but I'll probably pop back in there sometime soon.

I like these mini preheat T5 strips, I have a few similar 120v models of this. They're pretty hard to find here since none of the home centres here sell then and I'd had to go to a lighting supplier to get them.

@Fox: If you have such nice videos, share the link with others here...

With F8T5 and smaller i have the experience, then they easily start without the starter (so with only series choke ballast) on 230V areas, but grounded metal has to be close by. I once had to "repair" by removing the starter the bathroom fixture (in rented apartment in Brussel - i was there for nearly a year in 06), i guess one of the lamp electrodes was weaker and the extra voltage did false-trigger the starter...
But without the starter is worked fine: Slow (~5seconds) light ramp-up after each power ON.
And i think in other European countries (where the 230V is between phase and neutral/ground) it would work even better, as in Belgium is common to have 230V between phases (so do not use the neutral wire; and so it was in that apartment building), so there is only ~160V from a phase to the grounded shield...

No more selfballasted c***
