Agreed. LED will get you the same light with a fraction of the Watts usage. And 10x the life.

Frankly, my old eyes cannot deal with less than a 150 watt bulb, and no, I got no intention of adding light sockets everwhere, so I'll stick with incandescent bulbs, and leave the weak-ass 60 or 100 watt (which any good light meter will show is nowhere near that) crappy bulbs to the PC-putzes to fawn over.

If your incandescants are burning out in two to six months, your incoming power quality is seriously fucked. No AC-to-DC gadget is going to filter it enough to fix that. You need a power conditioner or to run on CFLs/LEDs with high-quality ballasts, or a battery backup, to shield the electronics from whatever is killing your bulbs.

Incandescent bulbs lose material from the filament at a rate proportional to the light power. I.e., making them last a lot longer makes them horribly inefficient.

Don't really care about how efficient they are or how better for the environment they are. My focus is on how long they last, price per bulb, and how much light is put out.

$$ per bulb? Then you ARE concerned about efficiency.

You just have not recognized it.

Sorry Charlie, but I been using the extender for a year now, been keeping track, and my incandescent bulbs went from two months to six months life, so when words don't match reality, I go with reality. I also know how very shitty the CFLs & LED was, having tried them, so singing their praises falls on deaf ears, but you believe as you like. The link I offered was for incandescent fans, so if any are still around, try out the extenders!

Rough service bulbs are exempt from the new restrictions.

One can still get "regular" bulbs.
