Default Replacement for an GE NE-45 Neon Glow bulb

Hello All:

I discovered two GE NE-45 Neon Glow bulbs within my non-functioning street number box.

Are there LED replacements for these 220v bulbs?

If need be I can run a lower voltage to the box, and use a small LED bulb that would fit into the socket.

Thanks,

Al

P.S.: here is more info on GE NE-45 Neon Glow

The link you posted takes us to a bulb that is 120 volt. Are you sure you have 220 volts.

It dosn't look like you will get a bulb that fit, but I guess you could rebuild it to take what ever fits and power it with a transformer
