These do not sound as the same thing as the usual 55 Watt bi-ax bulbs we
are used to put in our fixtures. The wattage, the price and the lifetime
sound odd. What is the spec of these bulbs ? I mean, what exactly is
written on their base/socket ? What socket type they need ? What size/type
are they ?

This sounds as the same as the usual 55 Watt bi-ax bulbs we use. What is
the phospor spec, /800 or /900 ?
