Now that governments are banning incandescent lights, we offer this solution to everyone who whines is concerned about Compact Fluorescents' colour balance or dimmability. As your last incandescents burn out you can convert them into these very warm, very dimmable lighting units, just adjust the length of the wick. Additional benefits include the ability to go completely off the electrical grid, and to keep old lightbulbs out of the landfill sites.

If you do not want to make your own, the unit shown is the Edisun Lamp from Opossum in Germany, designed as an homage to Thomas Edison, which you can buy from Singulier for 65 euros. ::NotCot 3926
