Hello Michael, I can (unfortunately) confirm your observations in France.
There is still some HID lighting with HPS and MH lamps, but you can really see the radical change.
Even in small villages, LED has very often found its way in.


Meanwhile, it's not the color of the light from these LED lights that bothers me, but the often miserable design of these lights.

Just got my four 15w Sylvania Dulux lamps, finally... Programmed Start as well which makes them far more interesting. However, they also give
off a yellowish hue to them, but they appear a little more bluish when they've warmed up completely. Under these ones though, it does seem as if
skin color looks a bit better compared to the Panasonic lamps. And when I screw them in, I'm able to see all the ends... so I'm able to monitor
any end blackening that may take place over the years. When screwed in completely, the Panasonic lamp endings faced upward, so it would've been
tougher to monitor the Panasonic CFL endings if I decided to keep using them above my bathroom mirror.
The Dulux lamps will be in use in my bathroom above the mirror for the time being. lol

Buy one of the 90w FCO SOX lights off eBay and reballast it for 55W? According to the spec sheet for them, the 90w and 55w model used the same housing.

The other option is to buy a UK light and either use a transformer or reballast it.

I also have these on my radar but I'm too far to pick them up:

Currently trying to find some semi-cutoff refractors for GE M400R2's. Interested in up to 4 but any one I can find would be greatly apprieciated. Thanks!

Would you be fine searching the British eBay and importing fixtures from the UK?

Just wondering because SOX low pressure sodium lighting is way more common in the UK. Additionally, if you have 240V split phase supplies, you should be good to go on running the fixtures at home. Otherwise, you might get away with a 120 to 240V step up transformer or 120 to 277V step up transformer.

That's what I did a while ago. I got a Thorn Beta 2.

Thanks for your insight. I would be using an enclosed lamp in a vapour proof globe. It would presumably contain a rupture and a flashover. I would never entertain anything more than 35/39W, however.

Unpacked a new cobra-head to the collection that I bought off another collector, but unfortunately the refractor was smashed in transit. Other than that no new lighting stuff.

Oh yeah I remember that listing. They were in fact AEL SRPs.

Rice paper I would be particularly careful and use an open-rated lamp, also would check the lampholder and wiring so they will not flash-over and ignite the paper.

Though. If the luminaire is responsibly made, paper and wood may be impregnated with flameproof solution, something like ammonium phosphate or borax or alum, making it essentially non-flammable. Sure if you have an extra spare/cheap one you can test if the paper will really ignite easily.
