Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) are an efficient and long-lived lighting source. However, like all lamps, they eventually "burn out" and sometimes fail prematurely. One alternative I thought of to recycling failed lamps is to reuse the parts for custom LED lamps. I would look up CFLED projects on the web.

I'm not too sure what you're asking, but if the CFL doesn't work any more it's probably not much use for anything. L
