Bulb Shape

The description of the general appearance of a lamp/bulb consists of a letter(s) followed by a number. The letter indicates the shape of the bulb and the number relates to the diameter of the bulb in eighths of an inch. For example, a common household bulb is the A-19. The bulb is "A" shape and the diameter would be nineteen 8ths of an inch, or 2 3/8".

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the inital light output of a bulb, rated after 100 hrs of operation. Lumens are a measure of how much light falls on one square foot of area, one foot away from the light source.

720

CRI

Color Rendering Index is an international system used to rate a lamp's ability to render object colors. The higher the CRI (based upon a 0-100 scale) the richer and more accurately colors generally appear. CRI differences among lamps are not usually visible to the eye unless the difference is more than 3-5 points.
 
CRI
84

Color Temperature (Kelvin)

An expression of the hue of the light emitted, measured in degrees Kelvin. Usually expressed by a four digit number followed by (k), such as 2700k. Higher temperatures indicate whiter, "cooler" colors, while lower temperatures indicate yellower, "warmer" colors. Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).
 
Color Temperature (Kelvin)
2700K

Q & A

TCP brand 14 Watt compact fluorescent decorative lamp with candelabra base. Warm white color and high color rendering mean you'll never know the difference, at least until you get your electric bill.

Outstanding energy efficiency - provides equivalent light to many 60 Watt incandescent lamps while using only 14 Watts of electricity

Outstanding life - 8,000 hour rated life is four to eight times as long as most incandescent lamps

Outstanding value - replace your existing lamps with more energy efficient technology, at a competitive price

NOT RECOMMENDED for use in enclosed fixtures or fixtures with control devices such as sensors or dimmers, may shorten lamp life.

Comments about TCP 60 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 14 Watt, 120 Volt Torpedo CFL Bulb:

I have these bulbs in a ceiling fan fixture. They're a bit long for the fixture's shades, but they provide plenty of light at reduced cost (they replaced three 60 Watt fan lightbulbs that weren't bright at all), saving me 145 Watts per hour for 12 or more hours per day. I would definitely recommend these to a friend.
