In Canada, it's not only lamps. Environment Canada is in the midst of heavily regulating mercury content in a variety of things. Since LED lamps are available, they strongly suggest you buy them instead of Hg ones, and will "gradually" instill a phaseout with a ban between 2023 and 2028.

Sounds like I'll be collecting a bit more vigorously than before...

The filament of 160W SBMV lamps is the same single coiled design as the 500W, so I expects that the high wattage ones would also being limited to at least vertical burning position.

Spanwire type - unusual holes on the top, mains top-entry instead of photocontrol and sealed side-arm pole entry.

I'm getting ready to sell them. Might be better if this thread is moved to the "For Sale" category.

Isn't that only for lower wattage SBMV lamps?

Ahmet is probably fine. People are just busy, have other interests and don't need to post to LG every week.
