Neptun products are safer to use and better for the environment.
All Neptun compact fluorescents have a patented End-of-Life Protection Circuitry to protect the lamps from overheating at the end of life. CFL's without End-of-Life circuits can potentially overheat to a point where the plastics containing the ballast begin to melt causing fire hazards.
Neptun compact fluorescents use Amalgam rather than Liquid Mercury. Neptun CFL's use amalgam for two very important reasons.
1) This allows all Neptun CFL's to be used in totally enclosed fixtures and
2) The use of amalgam eliminates the environmental concern regarding disposal of CFL's. The mercury used in the lamps is entirely contained inside the amalgam alloy and does not escape when the lamp is destroyed or disposed of.
Neptun uses lead-free glass and lead-free solder in the manufacture of their bulbs.
Neptun is the first CFL manufacturer to come to market with a complete line of dimmables for nearly every standard incandescent light source.
Neptun means quality. Neptun is one of the only Compact fluorescent manufacturers selling in the US that has total ownership of its' overseas factories assuring that only the best components, light sources and phosphors are used in the lamp.
