CCFL lamp


Well-Known Member
Been using this for quite some time now, it will cure normal gels and LED, it has a broader nm spectrum.
Better energy consumption and a life span of approximately 30,000 HRS (approx 10 years if used 8 hrs a day)
I bought one that has 60, 120 and 180 sec timer.
It's working for me, but I would like some more information on this new technology.
My thoughts so far ..... another analogy ......

My fish tank ...... just started a new tank, so I wanted a new light, researched new LED lamps for my tank, then went to an aquarium (many of them), nobody wanted to talk about them, nobody tried to sell me one ..... so naturally I dug deeper, put my feelers out for contacts in the industry ... finally got some info from a friend that works at an interstate Aquarium saying (we don't like to sell them, nor mention them) the reason......... when we sell an LED light for an aquarium, we make one sale that last for years and years, whereas if we sell a traditional light, we not only sell them a light, we know they will buy new bulbs, at least 3 times a year.... FOREVER.
If we sold LED lights we would loose all those sales and profit in bulbs.

Is this going to be the case with CCFL, when they will cure almost anything, obviously the companies that sell normal lamps will never sell globes again, when a CCFL lamp will last for 10 years.

Although it's relatively new technology, I'd like some more science, perhaps Doug Schoon can help, .... is it about science or sales?

Some info on nm (nanometers) would be interesting, as ech has it's own nm cure, what if a lamp could do nearly all nm ?

this is interesting and would like to see some responses from people like Doug Schoon. It would be great, from a nail tech's view, to have one lamp for all (or almost all) product lines we want to carry. And not worrying about how much life your bulbs have left would be nice too :)
