Homes Shimachu - HID Bulbs Selection

Here's a shot of part of the bulbs aisle in Homes Shimachu...basically the equivalent of Home Depot combined with Target/Wal Mart back here. Their selection of HID bulbs was quite amazing, they had MV lamps from 40 to 1000W (which cost the equivalent of $100+..ouch!) including a rare 100W G20 MV too. There was also some HPS and MH. In comparison the home centres here only sell 70W HPS and 175W MV lamps. I didn't get a shot of the whole lighting section but you can see more of it in this video.

Thank you for sharing Japanese lighting section, Joe Smile

What kinds of applications would a G20 mercury vapor lamp be used in?

Possibly track lighting.

That would look kind of... odd. I was thinking maybe bathrooms or something.

Why would it be odd?Im sure MV track lighting probably existing. MH track lighting existed...

This is what a G20 lamp is.

I originally thought it might have been something similar to G12 base lamps but it turns out that it is actually a globe shape. I have found websites with globe shaped mercury lamps before.

I saw them in use in post top globe fixtures, I think there were either 80w or 100w.

Oh yeah I thought you were talking about those twist-lock bases used on a lot of mini halogen floods and some CFLs and LEDs (those are GU24 though).
