Eighteen models of compact fluorescent lamps are banned in the city because their measured average lives are shorter than the time listed on labels, the Electrical and Mechanical Services Department says. The importers, Chip Kwong Electrical and Surewin Electrical, are replacing for free the models, sold under four brand names - Pallas, Silon, Mastar and Lightpro. Consumers should call Chip Kwong on 2757 7820 or Surewin on 2694 9229 for replacements.
