Re: Another Reason to Not Use CFLs...

said by Mele20:

During a brownout do the CFLs work at all? The long 36/48 inch fluorescents barely come on and constantly flicker so they are worthless during brownout.

During a brownout you should switch your power off. From the panel that is. Low voltage may kill devices with switching supplies and motors (pretty much all these days). It may kill TVs, CFLs, refrigerators, air conditioners, furnaces...
