Compact fluorescent light bulbs don’t have a good reputation. Unjustified: OSRAM’s modern compact fluorescent light bulbs easily refute the repeated criticism leveled at this technology group.

The compact fluorescent light bulb has a very long lifespan, but if it should fail at some point, recycling it is really easy.
