Mistake regarding lamps on wikipedia

  1. Jul 27, 2008 #1

    The wikipedia article on lamps says the following: "A lamp is a replaceable component such as an incandescent light bulb, which is designed to produce light from electricity."

    Some lamps are powered from gas, not electricity.

    1. That article is entitled "lamps (electrical component).

    2. It is not the purpose of PF to point out mistakes in wikipedia.
