Those were the good ol' times products from the 80s, unlike the today's easily breakable, prone to catching fire spiral shaped CFL.

Those had magnetic ballasts, which the negative part is heavier lamps, but they are more immune to failing and coming out in smoke! Also the base is metal instead of plastic meaning no yellowing, burning or anything like that!

Some people liked the flashing of those older lamps while others may get annoyed which is understandable.....but I myself find them fun most of the time.

Those lamps have very special feature...if you look at the very middle lamp, you will see some sort of bluish arc coming out from 2 separate tubes....those actually go out from one tube then around the vacuumed capsule (the outer glass) then back in to the other glass tube...makes it more efficient...but more expensive to make! Those were made in Japan by the way!

All those are 20 watt and the 2 are never used while the middle one has been used which is why it's dimmer.
