This is a followup to my earlier post about the demise of Halogen Torchieres. I was all sad. I went out shopping today, and they have 150W incandescent torchieres and 55W fluorescent ones. I decided to give the fluorescent ones a try, and to my surprise, they actually seem brighter than my old 300W halogen! Now I know why those halogens are dead. These are better! I am no longer sad. :)
Hurray for science! Vorsprung durch Technik!
