Can a compact fluorescent bulb be used in a lamp with a 3-way switch?
Well, they sell 3-way compact fluorescent bulbs, but they're
quite a bit more expensive; up to 20 dollars a bulb!...Harder to
find as well, since many people (myself included) debate whether
the purchase is worth it. I've made the switch w/ all but my
three-way lamp. Anyway, using a one-way cf bulb will pose the same
problems as using an incandescent one-way as far as electrical fire
hazards. Hope that helps!
