I'm back « on: December 03, 2017, 10:40:48 AM » Author: hannahs lights
Hi guys and girls I'm back! I'm feeling better now so hopefully will be able to be more active now. For a while I thought I was EOL for sure. Any way back to lights! I saw a couple of videos on you tube showing how you could increase the wattage of a CFL by holding a magnet near it apparently it works by straightening the arc path and also saturating the transformer/choke the videos are on Diodegonewilde channel also he shows a CFL which is mercury starved  its glowing very pink! Let me know what you all think ??

Welcome back!, if you Don't mind me asking, why were you almost EOL? also that CFL thing is interesting... I might take a really strong magnet to one and see how far i can push the thing...

LOL, I actually Dont mind CFL's, they have their uses.... But the idea of throwing a whole crate of them off a cliff is amusing to me..

Thankyou for your kind words I'm feeling a lot better now I still have to take it easy and be careful but generaly the worst is behind me. I was always anti CFL I hated them but are they that bad? Compared to LEDs no they are not well not in my opinion anyway at least they are a fluorescent lamp!!
