Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
8 Watts

Incandescent/Halogen Equivalent

The wattage value of an incandescent or halogen lamp of similar brightness
 
Incandescent/Halogen Equivalent
45 Watts

Volts

A measure of "electrical pressure" between two points. The voltage specification of an incandescent lamp is the electrical "pressure" required to drive it at its designed point. The "voltage" of a ballast (e.g. 120 V) refers to the line voltage coming from the power source and is connected to the ballast.
 
Volts
110-130

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".
 
Bulb Shape
A-19

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Medium (E26)

Diameter (in)

Light bulbs: a measurement of a bulb's width taken at the widest point of the bulb. Fixtures: the measurement across the widest point of a circular fixture.
 
Diameter (in)
2.375

Length (in)

Also referred to as "Maximum Overall Length" (MOL). For light bulbs, it measures the length of a light bulb, from the top of the bulb to the bottom of the base or pins and is typically expressed in inches. For light fixtures and ballasts, it applies to the total horizontal length of the item.
 
Length (in)
4.875

Average Rated Life (hr)

A measurement of the average length of time, between first use and the point when 50% of the lamps tested have stopped functioning, , using an operating cycle of 3 hours on, 20 minutes off.
 
Average Rated Life (hr)
18,000

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.
 
Brightness (Lumens)
325

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
82

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)
2250K

Product Notes: Please Test Small Quantities Before Investing in a Large Purchase. No Dimmable CFL Product Performs Like Traditional Incandescent or Halogen Bulbs. Dimmable CFL Bulbs May Not Work Well With Your Dimmer Switch and Even Those That Are Compatible Produce Noticeable Dimming Only Between 20-50% of Total Output. Traditional Bulbs Typically Dim from 0-100%, Dimmable CFL's Do Not.

    Comments about Litetronics 45 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 8 Watt, White A19 DIMMABLE/FLASHABLE Cold Cathode Lamp.:

    These bulbs are a waste of money; no way to be polite on this one.

    Light is weak, light is pink-to-purple, and the bulb dimly-flashes once every 20-seconds or-so when connected to circuits using standard Lutron/Eaton 600W dimmer (there is about 100W of other halogen-load on same circuit, so it's not like that circuit is floating). I tried these bulbs in several locations, some with / some without dimmers, it made no difference.

    I purchased a bunch of other types of CFL-bulbs at the same time I bought these, some were even from same company (Litetronics)... the others were acceptable, these are worthless.

    I ended up "using" these by putting one into multi-bulb frosted ceiling fixtures having two other 75W-CFL A-type bulbs that were too white/blue. The pink of these bulbs toned-down the blue-light from the others. I can't think of a single other reason to use them.

    Comments about Litetronics 45 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 8 Watt, White A19 DIMMABLE/FLASHABLE Cold Cathode Lamp.:

    I put this bulb in an open ceiling light my small TV room and it does a good job of lighting there. I had to get used to its weak light when I first turned it on, but it gets brighter rather quickly. It's very nice and not too bright when I'm lying back in my recliner. I would certainly buy another one.

    Oh, and the dimming feature works nicely, too.

          I like the warm light that an incandescent gives you. Is the warm white the same?

            A:

            The color temperature for a standard incandescent bulb is 2700K. This bulb has a color temperature of 2250K and will appear warmer than an incandescent. If a light output similar to an incandescent is desired then a bulb with 2700K color temperature would be more suitable.
