Hi there, I'm actually in the market for a new lamp myself, mine just went last night at 1500 hours. I checked my bulb and it's the 003 but the casing doesn't have the flapper. What does this flapper actually do exactly? I assume for air flow but does this prolong the life expectancy of the bulb. I hope it can give me well over 1500 hours next time around. Wondering if I should pick up a bulb from Avs. Still looking around for pricing.
