Wanted: FT40DL PL fluorescent lamps « on: October 15, 2021, 05:38:01 PM » Author: thelightingman
I just got a light fixture that requires these bulbs but I can't find any in a store. Does anyone have one of these lamps you would be willing to sell or get rid of? Thanks.

I have a Philips LED retrofit . It's 3,500k and plug & play . I got it a few years ago and have nothing to run it in . I know nothing about it . It appears to be brand new .

If you don't need it, I'll take it until I can get the fluorescent variant. Just send me a PM and we could work something out with it.

Restore will sometimes have these PL lamps too. I've seen them from time to time. I guess contractors or lighting companies donate them and they tend to linger on the shelves for a while since they're not typically used domestically.

I've only ever found these at one ReStore. I believe they still have them to this day, but it is quite far from me.

The last time I've seen any for sale anywhere close to my area was a thrift store back in 2017. I got one when I first saw them, but I killed it by trying two F20 preheat chokes and an FS4 starter trying to start it if I recall correctly. Haven't seen any close to my area since.

Two questions: are the ballasts hard to find? And are these PL fixtures rare?

Here is a 40w PL-L lamp that costs under $6 USD with free shipping:

They should be able to work with your fixture!!!

If you are willing to sell some, how much would you want for 3 of the lamps? Send me a PM with an offer.
