setting light bulb.

The 60 watt light bulb that just won't quit was installed in 1901 and has burned continuously, except for a few blackouts and some outlet moves, at it's home home in the Livermore Ca., fire station. It's used as a nightlight over the firetrucks and is never turned off.

Thanks for the information jackten47 really helpful thanks again
Best Regards

Interesting piece of article. It is puzzling me though how it could last that long. I reckon that there is some component in it that charges itself up so that it can supply its own form of energy as its maintenance.

It can be a little dangerous though considering the hazards posted by light bulbs especially if they already reach that age when they are not that efficient any more.
