I saw that these were on a Euro site. You need to specify that these will be used on an AC/DC system. Euros use a DC. Your house will burn quicker than leaves in a bowl. The price doesn't seem that nice. You can get Hortilux bulbs for 30-100 US dollars. The Euro conversion is like 100$+oversea shipping.

If it says mercury vapor than it's not going to be compatible, unless i'm just completely stoned and retarded I don't believe that's possible.
