Based on what I've seen online about HID bans, I'd say that in a few years time, MV & HPS will be where SOX/LPS is now with MH falling victim shortly after.
Fluorescent tubes may also meet the same fate which is why I've started stockpiling every tube I can get.

The 30w TL-D can use either FE4P, FG4P, FS4, or either European 4w-65w/80w starters.

The wrong people found my page  :eoled:
I am in fear.
THIS KID from my school, found my light page even though he wasn't supposed to.
I saw him watch my videos in the park, and he was laughing.
I ran away in shock and decided to move my channel and private my instagram page. I am currently in the process of reuploading my videos. Soon enough I will update my youtube

Don't mind this kind of people: they will eventually grow up.
Is he laughing? This is his problem, not yours.
Don't move you channel: it is your hobby, if he isn't ok with that, it is his problem, not your (or you can ban his username).

AngryHorse - I believe most of it was name changed from AEI to Atlas. The AEI Beeby (Beta 1), AEI Amber Minor (Beta 5), AEI Saxby (Beta 6), AEI Optisec One (Alpha 3), AEI Junior Amberline (Beta 8 ), AEI Ashby (Gamma 8 ), to name a few. Atlas carried many of the A B G names, and Thorn continued the legacy.

Econolite03 - My pleasure :)

Mandolin Girl - While I wouldn't recommend road & street light classifications for a speech, it's nice trivia ;)

July 15 2021   Is when last American fluorescent produced
Here in the US.  And Exit the North Amarican Manufactureing
  The last Lamp they made for that day was HO 8 foot 110 watt
   Fluorescent.   Whaf make a end period though years
  Of 1983 to july 2021 date codes date codes on American
  Philips fluorescent tubes.   But this date code will carry on
   With poland and India tubes. This make a new start line
  For tubes comminng into the US.   But we have older poland
   Lamps  such as CFLs and EU Ts  and some of there hid lamps.

    So finding a August 2021 North American tubes not going to happen as there is no such tubes

   Philip in the US bought out few lamps plant in the late 1960s or 70s time time frame such as Itt and Champion lamp plant.  But there was bit of a problem philip could not Use there own name
 Because it would create confusion with Philco radio.  So philip
Had to rename the company under North American electric lamp company
So they took all that wording Nor as in north and E as electric L as in lamp and CO company and that how Norelco got it name.  Until 1982
Philip bought out Philco radio.  And then They bought westinghouse Lamp Division in 1983.  So any philip lamps that were made in the US
Before philips was sold under norelco and yes that included sox lamps for US market.   So it bit easier dating US philips lamps because there lot of changes in manufactureing in each of it decades. That what I am pointing out to.

Could have been lack of space on the etch in the early days  :wndr:

Or maybe it was just to confuse the masses, i.e. us  ::)

Here’s a question?, why did they even use codes???
What was up with just printing 15/07/64, or 07/15/64 for US lamps, why go to to all the bother of breaking dates up into codes?

My favorite is my mushroom-shaped LED vintage bulb, which not only dims, but also has a very beautiful shell that is hand-blown.
Second place is obviously my Philips Master 12V 4000K MR16 reflector.
