Here I picked this bulb out of the retrofit operation during my contract work back in 2000. We used this bulb some time later on. It has been used until last week where my mother replaced with the new CFL bulb and left it on my desk. Apparently, it has been last approximately 10 to 12 years of occassional/semi-regular uses. As you can see how well worn the phosphor coating is.

Amazing that this one 10 to 12 years! Had always thought when these make 4 years, they done good and the bad ones might not make 6 months.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

It also depends on how often you use them and how long you leave them on.

When the blurb on the packaging states >10 years life* etc. it's usually calculated on 3 hours' daily use (roughly equating to 10,000 hours) which is a bit lean as I'm sure most people have the lights on for longer than that unless it's in a bedside lamp or similar use where it won't be left on all evening.

Say NO to DICTATORSHIP in the form of bulb/tube/ballast bans !!

Nice, I didn't know helical CFLs were made as early as 1999. First ones I ever saw was around 2005.
