A CFL, or compact fluorescent lamp, is a type of fluorescent lamp intended to replace traditional incandescent lamps. Advantages of CFL's include lower power use, a longer rated life, and significantly lower greenhouse gas emission. However, these lights tend to have higher purchase prices than those of incandescent alternatives. A CCFL, or cold cathode fluorescent lamp, is any type of fluorescent lamp in which the cathode is not independently heated. Neon lights are common examples of CCFL's.

What is the difference between ccfl and eefl?

CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lamp) is different from EEFL (external electrode fluorescent lamp) in that the glass tube of the CCFL contains a small wire electrode that conducts the voltage to excite the gasses in the tube. The glass tube is molded around the electrode and that junction creates a possible point for the gasses to escape and the lamp to fail. EEFL is a completely sealed glass tube with a metal cap or conductive paint on the end acting as the electrode. When the proper voltage is applied to the external electrode, a capacitive connection is established between the electrode and the gasses within the tube and the lamp illuminates. Because the electrodes in CCFL's are in direct contact with the rare gasses, CCFL's run warmer than the EEFL's which are completely cool.
