    > pull cord
    > outlet

    Have you tried this guy over here? 230V rated, black, no useless outlet (when was the last time you plugged something into the ceiling anyway?), no stupid pull cord (what is it 1982?), adjustable height and way easier to install

    >ceramic
    based. most of those ceramic frickers are rated for up to 600w bulbs. plus they dont crack after a sneeze when installing them, unlike their plastic counterparts.
    >3 prong receptacle
    based. nothing like having a convenient receptacle in an attic or basement, or wherever
    >string attached to pull chain
    not based. those frickers are so weak, they break when you exert any more force than an emaciated granny

    >lamp holder
    did you mean bulb? that's fine for a crawl space or attic but the light is shitty and the pull cord is ass. no valance either. they yellow and crack to. I mean you posted literal garbage, not a lamp.

      It's called a lamp holder or lamp base.
      Porcelain doesn't yellow.
      You can put all kinds of bulbs in them that direct light or diffuse it, and there's all kinds of ways to incorporate shades, baffles, valances, etc. using those lamp holders.

      Quit buying shitty ones and the chain switches work fine.

        Oh yes I too lay down on the floor with binoculars every day to admire my perfectly matching clocked screws that hold in my ugly ass lamp fitting

        I need some of these.
        >120V system - 150V lamps last forever...

        It says 230v 150W, they are very bright bulbs and double as space heaters if you have a few of them

        it needs to be enclosed in an artistic glass globe or in chandeliers
        plain lightbulbs signal poverty

        > I need cheap glass shit around my light bulb to look fancy
        It will only convert more light to heat. Chandeliers with bulbs in them are faux classical and look terrible

      I use that ceramic lamp holder to put this in the ceiling. It's incredibly bright so I can see everything I'm doing at my workbench. I don't care if it looks ugly it's bright as frick.

          I bought one made out of aluminum a few years ago for my workshop one of the panels that I didn't need went out a few weeks ago but overall its been pretty nice

            Never had that problem with the good Leviton ones, only with the cheap knockoff brand ones from Menards.

            But no current production Mexican and chicom lamp base can hold a candle to the old MiUSA ones.
