Notes: This lamp just goes to show how CF technology is starting to get a foothold in the everyday lighting market.  This lamp being sold in a major supermarket chain, at a price that almost anyone can afford.  Previously, reflector CF lamps were a "specialist" item that I had to order from either a specialist lighting store, or online.

Technically this lamp is nothing particularly extraordinary.  It's a conventional 11W CF lamp with a reflector stuck on the end - or screwed on the end as the case actually is in this case.  Literally!  I discovered this by accident when cleaning the lamp for the photographs (It's shiny - the camera likes to show up any and EVERY fingerprint...).  The reflector can actually be unscrewed from the lamp - leaving you with a conventional 11W CFL then!  It's not a hugely useful feature, but is interesting for a lamp collector such as myself.

This lamp added to the Virtual Display Shelf...sometime before I started recording it!  Oops.
