See the URL for General Electric I posted yesterday (and my reply to the
last message). It's my understanding that what people are calling "Power
Compacts" are higher wattage and larger tubes, and are slightly more
efficient, i.e. 40 - 96 watts per "U" tube.  The 13-watt biaxial (and
26-watt quad) tubes have been around for many years.
