Yup. Means I have more of a chance to snag one when I become "not broke" lol

I hate seeing all these opportunities pass me by.

Are these ok to light in a regular fixture (just to light it not use daily or anything)?  Just want to make sure they aren't reptile bulbs or anything that will be emitting a lot of uv

Mine came today...want to fire it up but want to be sure it's safe 1st.

Awesome. Thx. Was afraid they might be dangerous or emit too much uv.  Don't want to fry my eyes or something.  I mean I know not to stare at it and stuff but I wanted to be sure the light itself was ok.

What were these actually marketed for?  Certainly not lamps right?

Self Ballasted Mercury Vapor (SBMV) lamps were made to directly replace incandescent lamps as a longer lived and more efficient source of light.

they aren't dangerous as long as you don't break them, and as with any bright light it is indeed good practice not to stare at them

Ohh ok  thought maybe they were intended to be used outdoors still but in regular fixtures.

I'll give it a try tonight.

I wonder what the life rating is on these.

I think the life rating is around 10,000 hours or so.
