Maybe this could be of interest.

I have an LPRO continuously running since ending last January. Lamp volt was 7.92V.
As of October 22 (today, 9 months later) the voltage is 7.7V.
The voltage dropped by 0.22V.
The VCXO Volt was 6.7V, and now is 6.8V.
It is powered at 24V, and the temperature at the heatsinked baseplate is 40 °C.
I see one could expect many years of operation from such surplus units.
