Q & A

Eiko brand 20 Watt halogen capsules.  JCD type, 12 volts for low voltage systems.  Low voltage means a smaller filament, for greater optical control.

  • Halogen lamps provide brighter, whiter light than incandescent bulbs, while maintaining outstanding color rendering

  • Perfect for undercabinet and accent lighting

DOUBLE CHECK the distance separating the two pins on your existing lamp.  They come in different sizes and if the pins do not match up correctly, the capsule will not fit properly.  Distance between pin tips for this version is 4mm (0.16")

    Comments about Eiko 20 Watt, 12 Volt Halogen General Use Capsule Bulb:

    The web site is not too well organized, and often appears to list the same bulb multiple times. Searches often don't take into account the type of base, making searches for unusual bulbs harder.
    Once you find it, the prices are better than competitors.

    It's a light bulb. When u turn it on it is bright. When u turn it off it is dark.
    What more is there to say? Oh,I know. The description is wrong. The gap between the contacts is 1/8. Not 1/16".other than that everything works fine.

          I was so happy this came, and it worked! Put it in the lamp, and when I turned it on and the light shown out I was so happy I grinned for at least an hour. Sorry I'm not giving you the sort of review you seem to want, but I was just so pleased with the fact that the bulbs came as quickly as they did... and worked perfectly. I really couldn't be happier with the bulbs... or your company!

          Same bulb that cost over six dollars at popular stores. Same or better quality for our 5th wheel unit which is our home. I looked and looked and this is the best bulb and best price I found. Side by side with any bulb in our 5th wheel they perform the same or maybe even better. Very happy will tell others as we travel and work camp in different campgrounds.

          I had previously purchased similar bulbs at [@] and paid a lot more per bulb. The bulbs lasted less than a week. The bulbs from Bulbs.com have performed exceptionally well, and have added elegance to our living room chandelier. The difference in the brightness and exceptional quality is incredible. And I saved money in the process. Thank you to all at Bulbs.com. And Happy Holidays!

                Provided the wattage, voltage and bases are the same, the bulb types are compatible.

              Can I use this bulb in my Malibu outdoor 12v lighting system?

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                This bulb is 12 volts and may be a suitable replacement for the Malibu lighting system. We do recommend verifying the maximum wattage allowed for the fixture and also the base type. This bulb has a G4 base. The spacing between the two pins equals 4 mm. We would suggest measuring an old bulb to verify the spacing of the pins.
