Yes, I know. :ironic:CFL pollutes the inside of your home with “dirty electricity” just by turning it on.
They are actually referring to electromagnetic field fluctuations emanating from the ballast. There is all sorts of controversial research and speculation that exposure to this may not be good for you. I am not going to further discuss it here, it's a topic for another thread.
I do not believe they are underdriving their bulbs. I think that "power disc" just helps to prevent a sudden surge of current when the bulb is turned on, leading to increased lifespan.I also emailed them this:
The main thing that leads to increased efficiency is the fact they are using IR halogen technology in the bulb.
