go, baby go: the philips L-prize lamps rock on

The DOE continues their long term accelerated testing of the Philips L-Prize winning bulbs from 2010.  The lamps continue to give shockingly good performance, with the average lumen maintenance for the 31 lamps at 93.0%. At that rate, the average operating hours
