DO NOT USE

Comments about Impact FCM Lamp (1000W, 120V):

I've used these bulbs in the Mole-Richardson 2K Space Lites and had disastrous results.  These bulbs kept blowing and damaging the fixture.  After the 3rd explosion, I contacted Mole and they indicated that the specs for these bulbs are slightly off and that they're plagued with problems.  They recommended using either GE or Ushio because their specs are 100% technically accurate.

This is the Mole fixture I've used these globes in:

      Comments about Impact FCM Lamp (1000W, 120V):

      I've have tested these with Mole Richardson's 2K Watt Zip Light and they work fine. They do generate an incredible amount of heat in just a few minutes, so watchout where you place your light. This heat is normal for tungsten halogen bulbs.The 2K Zip I'm using has two spring-loaded sockets and if you remove your bulbs from your light when traveling, you'll increase their life span -- or better yet, if you pare these bulbs with a dimmer and set it to 90% you'll dramatically improve the life of the bulb.For the price, these bulbs are perfect.Wear gloves when handling if hot.

        Bulb works great. Just be sure to follow the instructions and DO NOT TOUCH IT with your bare hands. The bulb gets extremely hot, so any oil from your skin could lead to a technical disaster.
