Re: Circle ring light/lamp with fuse?

It looks like a circular fluorescent lamp.  The electrical connections are out of camera range to the right.  They come in several sizes and should be available in any good lighting store.

What do you want it for?  There just might be options that forum members can suggest.

Yes sir,

Sailor Blue nailed it. Those type of bulbs are used in kitchen fixtures. The par that you do not see to the right has two pins and probably a plug to the ballast for it.   AC powered.

Re: Yes sir,

This type of bulb is available at most big box home improvement stores here in the US. They are inexpensive but cumbersome to rig for photography use, IMO. Depending on the effect you desire,there are many more practical solutions.
