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.

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".

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.

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)
2,600

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)

Q & A

Philips brand 42 Watt compact fluorescent lamp. 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 150 Watt incandescent lamps while using only 42 Watts of electricity

  • Outstanding life - 8000 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 for use with control devices such as sensors or dimmers, may shorten lamp life

    Comments about Philips 150 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 42 Watt, 120 Volt Warm White Spiral CFL Bulb:

    I have 3 single bulb chandeliers over my kitchen island. They had 150 watt incandescents in them with a dimmer. We didn't use the dimmer really, so I replaced them with these equivalents (and removed the dimmer).
    Granted, the old bulbs were probably pushing 6 years old, but what a difference! These are so much brighter - the difference is amazing. It's a huge kitchen, and we need all the light we can get. I'm actually going to relegate these to the basement and try the 32 watt Philips bulbs. At just a few less lumens, I think they'll be best for my kitchen.
    The warm white color on these is really good. I don't miss the hot incandescent bulbs at all.
