The Everlasting Light Bulb We Never Heard About…

53f20ca828eb39a916fd14c5ab98cf0eThis light bulb has been working continuously for 110 years. It was made by a competitor to Thomas Edison named Adolphe Chailet and is located at Fire Station Number 6 in Livermore, CA. It has survived earthquakes, moves, and changes in voltage and still provides light. It hangs outside the fire station and lights a small area. Chailet designed lightbulbs to last indefinitely but for some reason people didn’t like his bulb and he went out of business.
