I just got a CFL bulb - EIKO SP23/65K.
This is my first CFL bulb so don't know much about them.
The problem is when turned on it gives off a metallic odor. Not a burning smell. Not noticeable far away, but you can smell it a couple of feet away.
I have it plugged into a 60 watt lamp base. The bulb is 23 watt. Thought it was the metal from my lamp, but I switched the bulb into a new lamp. Still gives off same odor.
Is the odor from these bulbs normal?
