I have used 130V bulbs and have only had one go out (in 3 openers) in about 13 "bulb" years (1 bulb/opener for 1 year, moved to new home, 2 bulbs/openers for 6+ years). Prior to putting in the 130V bulbs, all other bulbs ("normal", appliance, GDO-specific) lasted about 1 month or so.
GDO guy suggested the 130V bulbs to combat the frequent burnout.
