Is modern tech ALWAYS better? Are you fed up with changing fluorescent tubes?
Modern tubes can't beat one from the 1950's. Used daily, I only had to replace it 2 years ago.
So it lasted over 50 years... beat that, modern tech!
(Actually I had to replace the whole fitting. The two ends of the tube were a smaller diameter than the body).
As for modern compact fluorescents, I'm told that, like tungsten bulbs, they can trip RCD circuit breakers when they blow. Health and safety? Heck, my elderly parents were left in the dark, frightened to get up.
Bring back wire fuse boards..
