Response to: Compact fluorescents don't like enclosed spaces!

Good point re: heat generation. Thankfully, since most of the heat is generated in the ballast unit, then housing the ballast outside the light/AP container would solve the problem. The ballast portion of the housing could also be semi-covered, with slats for ventilation. Vague schematic (best viewed in Times New Roman, 12 pt.):


The package, with the two-level housing:


___#___
| -#- } |
|_|||||||_{_|
| % [] |
| % [] |
|_______|


Compact fluorescent light is this assembly:
-#-
|||||||
%
%


AP is this assembly:
[]
[]


The # represents a light screwtype connector (sorry -- don't know the technical name)


The curly brackets ( {} ) represent the wire from the AP to the main screwtype connector.


Thoughts?
