240 or 150 volt lamps (screw in) now appear to have metal plates close to an inner glass capsule and no longer the suspended jiggly wire as in days of yore. Any housing 'lecceys like to tell me what it's all about?
:wzd
Cheers, Tony.

As Spock says. Halogen bulb inside a normal bulb instead of a filament (Jiggly wire thing) Something like 20% more efficient and 500% of the price of an old bulb.

Progress :confused:

How manufacturers,
who of course themselves could voluntarily choose to stop making the cheap unprofitable incandescents they keep saying are "bad for the planet",
instead seek to invoke international cooperation in replacements and regulations, the real aim being to cut down any competition from local upstarts who might want to make the simple popular and locally more easily made incandescent bulbs


The United Nations (via UNEP) cooperation agreement with Philips and Osram, the en.lighten initiative which was agreed in 2009, is now set to "change the world" in 2012, having gradually built up funding to be able to launch a comprehensive worldwide lighting conversion programme.

The following looks at it with edited extracts from the Philips and Osram CEO presentation

So, a big pay-off to Philips and Osram from the World Bank to offload otherwise unwanted expensive patented fluorescent or LED bulbs on developing countries.

Somewhat (though only somewhat) tongue-in-cheek one might ask, why not ban cheap well known generic penicillin too - allowing the offloading of expensive patented less well known drugs on Africans and others?


Light bulb manufacturers have a long and dark history in seeking to avoid fair competition on open free markets, beginning with the Phoebus Cartel in the 1920's, continuing up to the present day lobbying for bans on patent expired unprofitable generic regular bulbs, and indeed now this subsidised product dumping..

It's not that I see that there is conspiracy in almost everything.
It's because. There is a conspiracy in almost everything. LOL: ��


The new energy saving bulbs are not only expensive.
They are filled with mercury and operate on dangerous frequencies.
You should not be within 1m of one for any length of time.
