Wow, good link.
Guess I'm gonna suck it and see, it's probably been much closer to 100% than 40%, and will have fluctuated between ~5°-25° over the non-use period.

I don't think it was Kel, we would have heard about how much hotter and more destructive the fire his lights caused than other identical lights by now
