You ‘gals’ are from Europe yet you don’t know Pink Floyd? That’s it…

Gemma + LED Retrofit = awesomeness.

We aren't from Europe, we're from the UK  :mrg:

As for Pink Floyd, I know of them, but I'm not a fan, so haven't ever listened to them or watched any of their videos.

And pretty please stop mentioning our lovely Gemma in the same sentence as those over-excited semiconductors  :P  ;)

 Replaced the last of my 100w equiv. Feit daylight filament style LEDs over my drive way :eoled:  I actually got around 7,500 hrs. from this POS running D2D for 2 years , 7 months !! :poof:  Longest lasting one yet !! The replacement is an Ecosmart version which is 100 lumens brighter (1,600L) and used 1 watt less ! (15w vs 16w) . So far , I've had great luck from the Ecosmart lamps...We'll see !!!

Today we received some rather nice Philips spectral lamps, so we're lighting those up. Photos to follow  :bulbman:

Yesterday I got a 39 watt CMH pendant light from my local ReStore for $10. It had a brand new lamp in it but the ballast was bad. Luckily I had another one of those pendant lights I had gotten from that same ReStore so I stole the ballast out of it. The light works perfectly now and is quite bright.

A few days ago I went on a train trip to pick up 2 unboxed but NOS 175w MV Holophane ceiling mount fixtures. Normally I wouldn't go by train to pick up lights but because it was only $50 for both, I couldn't pass. Apart from some rain, everything worked out and before I knew it, I was back on the train going home. I'm glad I went outside of rush/peak hour because it meant I could sit the 2 bags and box with the lights on the seats which was good due to how heavy they were.

Changed a couple lamps today, even saw one arc between the filament gap and managed to get a good photo of it while on. ;D

Swapped out a ballast in a 3ft striplight. I had a HPF 30w only ballast and I decided to try that one out instead.

I lugged 2 Sylvania Batwings home using a flatbed shopping cart. It was very tiring due to how heavy the lights are but was very much worth it in the end

Currently in college, so it's very hard for me to take pics of street lights. I will be doing a lot of drawings though! :love:

I replaced a Feit 100w equivalent 2700K filament LED that lasted a little over year, used on average five hours a day, with a new one. Hope it makes it more than one year lol.
