Mercury Vapor Lamp Overload « on: August 28, 2018, 03:38:30 AM » Author: F96T12 DD VHO
A video done about 4 years ago by DanTheAwesomeMan. He explains why he overloads the lamp, He does is with a variable ballast and when he is overloading it, he makes it dimmable as the brightness changes. It's probably not dimming but it just looks like it.

This youtuber is idiot: Why to overload and kill a brand new Osram HQL 80W (MBF-U) made in Germany (Date code: q498)?  Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh? Huh?

dor123: I saw this video a long time ago and IIRC the reason he does this is to see how an HID lamp behaves (and fails) when overloaded.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

He can try this on a cheap generic Chinese MV lamp. Not on a quality MV lamp.

Maybe he used it because either it was the first thing he had on hand (or bought) or he did not want to use a cheap lamp because the quality control of the cheaper lamps may make it fail prematurely.

But anyways it does suck that he did this to a perfectly good Osram lamp.

These German Osram HQL 80W lasted a lots of years, and had the Lifeguard emitter coating that turned the arctube white instead of black.
