This would make me particularly happy while schlepping to the bathroom at 3a.m.
I think I got one of those from this local store that sells random electronic stuff. I'm not going to trash him because he's cool about returns, none of his tubes are tested but they're cheap.
Anyway, one of the ones I got I put on the tester, and it just lit up really bright on the bottom, no heater or anything. Of course it failed on the tester. I don't remember if it was suppose to be a 12A*7 or EL84. Wasn't either apparently. I returned it. Didn't come with a power base, of course.
It's a night light.
It has an LED in it.
Where can we get one?
The one I had was super bright. I would imagine it was a modded tube.
Is it just an LED shining up?
I have a whole milk crate fulla wall warts. Must be one in there that's around 6v...
I'll whip up a Super Duper version, a real tube with its real filament lit. I'll use a miniature DPDT switch in the base with an LED wired across it in case you actually need to see where your going.
Switchable choices include tube, LED or tube plus LED.
