I've been using the compact flourescent bulbs. Drop them all the time and no filiment to break plus much less heat. If you smack it hard enough the glass will break but then again so will an incandecent. Haven't broken one yet though.

Rough service bulbs are exempt. Just the same, I don't think I'd miss them if they were banned. I've burned myself with an incandescent trouble light enough times to know that fluorescent or LED trouble lights make a lot more sense.

I have heard that specialty light bulbs will always be available, it's just the standard incandescent that are being phased out. But, the repubs have blocked any funding for enforcement of that law so Menards still has lots of 100w incandescent! I guess if you want to waste energy you can go ahead!

I have used the compact florescent bulbs also. They work very well, however you want to be careful about breaking the bulbs. I don't remember where it came from but I have an email at work that show a guys foot where he got mercury poisoning from a cut with a cfl bulb. I have started using the led lights and they are sure nice also.

Rough service light bulbs are exempt for now, but I would not count on this remaining so indefinitely.

I put a floresent bulbs in My trouble light bout 6 months ago, One of them ones that look like a big screw. Was the omly thing we had in the house at the Time. Wished I would of done it 5 years ago or whenever they came on the market. Never blew out, Been droped 3 feet on to the concrete, bumped 100"s of times, Only thing that did it in was water driped on it from the car. Replace it with another floresent one.

The famous "mercury poisoning" picture is a hoax. The picture itself is quite real, but has nothing to do with a broken fluorescent bulb.

About ten years ago I tried a different style trouble light that uses a regular foot long flourecent light. I like it, it throws better light and hardly any heat. The bulb is well protected inside a plastic cover so I have not had to replace it yet.

I haven't tried a curly flourescent bulb in a regular trouble light yet. The tungston lights are way too bright and hot for me, they are only OK for lighting a large area.

Have used the flouresent trouble lights in the shop for years.
Provide decent light.
No more burnt arms.
Plastic case won't short across electrical connections like the metal case.
Not as dangerous when working around flammables.
With that said they are not worth a darn if you need something to light right up when it is minus 40.
As well they are useless if you need to thaw out a frozen watering bowl .

Get yourself some stop light bulbs (if you can find them). 135W and very heavy duty.
