|Notes:||This lamp just goes to show how
CF technology is starting to get a foothold in the everyday lighting
market. This lamp being sold in a major supermarket chain, at
a price that almost anyone can afford. Previously, reflector
CF lamps were a "specialist" item that I had to order from either a
specialist lighting store, or online.
Technically this lamp is nothing particularly extraordinary. It's a conventional 11W CF lamp with a reflector stuck on the end - or screwed on the end as the case actually is in this case. Literally! I discovered this by accident when cleaning the lamp for the photographs (It's shiny - the camera likes to show up any and EVERY fingerprint...). The reflector can actually be unscrewed from the lamp - leaving you with a conventional 11W CFL then! It's not a hugely useful feature, but is interesting for a lamp collector such as myself.

This lamp added to the Virtual Display Shelf...sometime before I started recording it! Oops.
