Dam shame, those blacklights are pretty cool lights when they are running, and your other link, well at least it wasn't Nickelback...

What a WASTE of a nice Sylvania Blacklight mercury lamp!!!!Would love to have one of these!They can still be found in areas where a LARGE amount of "blacklight" is needed-stage or studio-discos,bowling alleys.

LED lighting has its place in the home or other indoor uses, but outdoors in street lights is in my opinion not one of them.

Its funny and unfortunate how a microwave can be so destructive to some thing

But of all things why a MV
Why not try a fluorescent tube with both filaments knocked off
Ive watched almost all of their videos

I microwaved an MV lamp once, but only for 20 seconds or so. It survived and is still in use. It was only a cheap Chinese one anyway and I have half a dozen of them so it was expendable. I certainly wouldn't risk it with a special lamp such as this  Shocked

I don't disapprove of LED's for domestic and other indoor use, I just don't like them for street lighting.
