Q: How can I get the maximum out of a lamp?
A: Minimizing handling: lamps that get moved or vibrated burn out quickly. Make sure that the fixture isn't being moved regularly. It is best to use a quality ceramic socket, not a plastic socket. You can check your fixture by unplugging it and looking at the metal tab in the center - where the bulb screws in. This tab can be pulled slightly forward to ensure that it makes a good contact with the bulb.
