    I think it was here where someone was asking about
    tiny fluorescent lamps and their ballasts (or lack thereof).

    For a while the dollar store near me sold these night lights:

    Inside is a 2 inch fluorscent bulb
    (most are white, some are other colors: pink, green, blue, orange).
    For 110 VAC, the "ballast" contains
    - 2 small green boxes (probably capacitors:
    71F 7089 9212 ERO)
    - 4: 56 ohm resistors
    - 2: dot style diodes
