The seller also has a H39 ballast and a streetlight arm too. Southern Long Island is a bit far for me but I guess someone might snap them up.

When I visited Japan in 2017 there were still a fair bit of places with mercury vapour and fluorescent but even then LED was beginning to make inroads in Japan. It seems like these regulations will mean that most conventional discharge lighting sources (CFL, HID, and fluorescent) will get phased out by the mid 2020s due to the mercury content and most people will be using LED. Unless some other lighting technology get commercialized before then I guess.

Wait what!? I thought mercury vapor was still used on a large scale in Japan. Does this mean they are going to stop using it completely? From what I know the reason for the discontinuation is because of the mercury content.

If anyone's interested : https://www.ebay.com/itm/264450170473?ViewItem=&item=264450170473

Unfortunately, they are local pick-up only !

I think that might be some of the horde that a member said he was getting rid of and getting out of NY. Never got mine.

I checked and it appears they should not be an issue.

BTW, should something be done about the exposed Romex?
It is inaccessible to the public, been painted over quite a few times, and is under the overhang. I would say from experience that inspectors would not say a word. If any of the fixtures are mounted directly on the wood without a J-box, that is another thing.

I was looking on Iwasaki’s Japanese website when I noticed that all of their mercury lamp products will be discontinued in 2021 due to regulations in the Minamata Convention.  This is kind of upsetting, considering they made several unique lamps for the Japanese market, which will become impossible to obtain. This shouldn’t effect production for the US market though, which I’m glad about.

That's terrible. Hopefully they're still produced for the US. I don't have any experience with Iwasaki lamps but it would be nice to keep them as an option for future lamp needs.
