Compact fluorescent lamps? They're the worst of the technology. I think the only one I have left is in the front porch light. Standard fluorescent lamps (4' or 8') can last a long time. The way the 4' and 8' lamps wear out is usually because the phoshors dim after awhile.
This is the only photo I have of mine at the moment, I’m on vacation right now.
Not sure exactly what type they are beyond that they’re tubes, not too well versed in lighting stuff.
