Not only that, but they also:1) DO NOT last as long as a half dozen or more incandescant bulbs - maybe three if you're lucky and at that price there is no savings;2) require an EPA recommended step-by-step clean up process if ypu break one in the house (read it here at http://www.epa.gov/mercury/spills/index.htm#fluorescent)3) the three ways are absolute crap.
And besides that, what is with that weird twisty filament thingie? Looks like it was designed to be screwed into your butt by a crazy proctologist.
Sounds like a bunch of tree-huggin' hippie crap to me.
Sig 94 beat me to it... EPA cleanup required... The only place i use one is outside in my yard light.
Thank you for taking the time to comment.
