There went my last incandescent light bulb out like a firework!
I am one of those who like things that are banned. Not because of the ban, but because the things worked.
This particular bulb has been with me since I bought the lamp in 2005. It has been in and out of three flats and two houses, been on the road for more than 1500 km and still worked like a champ for nearly ten years.
I changed the spots over my entrance door in October 2014. Come March 2015 they are all dead. That’s not impressive, but sadly the way bulbs are today.
