I was sitting at the dining room table a few weeks back when the light level changed a bit. I did not think anything of it at the time but a little bit later there was that distinctive smell of overheating electrical equipment. After checking out all of the electrical things in the area I remembered the change in light level.
Yep, sure enough, another one of the CFLs had failed in the dining area lamp and emitted the electrical stench. I have blogged about these things before and this time it is an Elite branded lamp. It is not as if the lamps are in an enclosure that causes the heat to build up. I think that they are just really crappy products.
