Strange looking Beta Five...

Postby Paul » Sat Jan 29, 2011 10:45 am

I was at a petrol station the other day (recently refurbished) and this Thorn Beta Five caught my eye...
You may wonder why a Beta Five SOX lantern would be in this category... but it seems this one was fitted with LED components. It first attracted my attention when I thought it had 2 SOX lamps in it. Then I remembered that the garage lights were all LED and on closer inspection, so was this fitting!

Hmm not seen these before! I suppose one good thing at least is that when this blows up there is a good bowl there for a existing SOX beta 5?

Is it more of those Philips Fortimo LEDs or whatever they are?

No, they look more like those LED fluorescent tube replacements...
