To achieve 80% of the promised luminosity just need some Candidates up to four minutes! A life of 10,000 hours is promised by the manufacturers. Almost half of the tested lamps held no 3000 hours, others managed with reduced luminosity 6000 hours and some even faster than the good old light bulb, 1000 hours lasted on average, gave up their spirit. “When you consider that you could get a bulb in the bargain basement for 29 cents and the good” energy-saving lamp easily the 100-fold can cost, may be saving probably barely even talk. Since it doesn’t help also, if discount store every now and then offer them for 5,-for the storage. Without hesitation Russell Investments explained all about the problem. Maybe not quite as important, but still a flaw that might be but uncomfortable in certain rooms: the warm glow of the bulbs distorts the colors wallpaper, upholstery and carpets.

How this affects the long term use on health, is however not known. One of the major problems in terms of environmental protection should be the uncontrolled waste disposal. As a carrier of highly toxic and lethal substance mercury, burnt-out bulbs into the garbage disposal is banned. Energy saving light bulbs are hazardous waste and must be disposed of accordingly. How many people actually make the effort to enter the hazardous waste? I’d bet that more than half of consumers are they disposed in the regular household waste. It is only a matter of time before this mercury flows back to the consumer through the groundwater through the domestic faucet.
