The lightbulb I've most recently acquired ...

zwarte piet Re:Fluorescent striplights (196 comments)

Slave labour more or less. In some countries a worker gets a fraction of the pay he would get in other counties. Also in many places factories don't have to produce in an environmentally sound way. That saves money also in the short run.

The lightbulb I've most recently acquired ...

zwarte piet Re:My experiences with CFL and LED light bulbs (196 comments)

Cfl's are often driven too hard. Especially the small bright ones. They squeeze more juice through them than is good for them, to make them emit more light. The clunky not too bright ones should laster longer. I have good experiences with the ones from ikea. Exactly the same applies to bright led bulbs also. Lumens sell, low price sells -> squeeze more juice though fewer or lower grade led's.
