I have some GE Energy Smart CFL bulbs which are advertised as "Bright from the Start". This is true, except within 60 seconds after I turn the bulbs on, they will dramatically and immeidately become much dimmer.
I assume that this is not the intended outcome, so...
... are the bulbs defective? ... is there something wrong with my wiring? ... is something else going on?
If this were a no-name brand I'd assume a defective bulb, but coming from GE I'd expect better.
FWIW, it's a regular switch on a regular circuit. No 3-way, no dimmer, etc.
