Dunno why, but I think this is much cooler than the antique shaped ones.

Yeah i agree! Cool

Now imagine if they started making vintage-looking CFLs...

I guess we need to wait another 80 to 100 years to find out Wink

LOL then they could bring back the preheat circline adapter and GE FLB/17!

GullWhiz   [Oct 14, 2012 at 08:33 PM]
The Circline Adaptors are still being made actually, and even in preheat. Commercial Lighting and I believe GE still makes them, if you look in Home Depot in the fluorescent aisle, you will find them there, the 21/22 watt ones....

This lamp isn't exactly an exact remake...# 1 instead of using carbon filament, they used the tungsten filiment which explains the T glass support with bunch of little filament supports, the original had NO supports like that, except in some cases it had one or two in the bottom, the rest just holds up itself. So it does not look exactly the same, but the squirrel caged style one is more impressive and much closer to the exact make, except for the exhaust tube which is made as a modern lamp instead of the original way...

I would imagine it has the modern features, just looks vintage.
Did you mean Commercial Electric?
Are the stock lamps still halophosphate warm white? Or did they change to a more natural-looking warm white like in a modern spiral CFL?
Did those 21/22w ones come with ACE cool white lamps as stock lamps? Because I have three that do but I got them used. One is lighting my computer area as I type.
I have another identical adapter with a 22w cool white red-etch Value-Bright "Ring-O-Lite" lamp.
Anyhow, are these all replacement lamps in the ones I mentioned?

A_lights   [Oct 14, 2012 at 09:56 PM]
Home depot has Phillips replacement lamps..22W,32W &40W in 3,000K they are triphosphor 85 CRI. .quite nice lamps that get interesting end banding as they age the cool white seems to still be halophospate yet daylight is triphosphor

GEsoftwhite100watts   [Oct 14, 2012 at 10:43 PM]
Are daylight circline lamps very common? Because if that's the case that's what I'll relamp my circline adapters with when the existing cool white (and one halophosphate warm white) lamps die. Seems to me that cool white (not sure if it's halophosphate but I sorta doubt it) is most common in hardware stores. However, I've seen Sylvania "Utility Cool White" circlines in one home center, which is the same packaging name and design for F40T12 "Cool White Plus".
My ACE (and one Value-Bright) ones must be halophosphate since they are old-ish anyway and they render wood slightly greenish.
But do the adapters come with halophosphate stock lamps?
Next time I make it to a Home Depot (don't have one in my area) I'll have to look.

A_lights   [Oct 14, 2012 at 11:01 PM]
Daylight isn't too common at all
Seems the commercial electric (TCP) circline adapters come with an electronic ballast and 2,700K or 3,000K lamp triphosphor
Not sure about others these days since they seem obsolete here Neutral
Most new lamps after 2010 have the "lighting facts" table printed on the package saying lumens color life and CRI

GEsoftwhite100watts   [Oct 14, 2012 at 11:09 PM]
Yeah, I've noticed that.
I'd love to find daylight circlines though!
Do you know if the electronic ones will out on a fun, festive EOL show?
