Overall Length:470mm
Cap Type:G13 medium bi-pin
Light Colour Temp:4000K Natural 25
Circuit Type:Switchstart
Comments:The rarely seen 19 inch 10w T8 in an even rarer colour. Normally made by Osram in 827, these lamps are an odd size and rating. Two run very nicely as a series pair on a 2ft 20w choke with a reasonable light output.

cant say I have seen such tubes made by tungsram before! very interesting find Smile I THINK the electrical specs of these are about the same as a 10-13W PL-C lamp or 13W T5, so im surprised they ran as a pair in series!, (although It reminds me of how I managed to get a pair of 10W 2Ds running in series!) the shorter Asian spec 13 inch 10W T8, runs at 0.23A 55V or so, and a pair of those would run nicely in series off a 20W Choke I imagine Smile

That's an interesting find Tom. I don't recall seeing this wattage in such a length, quite a low power density! Cool

I’ve got some modern osrams in colour 827 in this length. Seem common in the continent.

These are interesting tubes indeed. They give a nice colour, halfway between the continental 25 and our original UK Natural, a nice soft cool white colour. I can imagine the Osram 827 version have a nice brightness Pete, get them paired up on a 20w choke! @ Dez I'm surprised you managed
to work a series pair of 10w 2Ds! There appears to be no indication of country or date on these but I suspect they're possibly from Hungary c1970s.
