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
120

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
Spiral

Base

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

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)
4.4

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)
10000

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)

Fixtures: the decorative finish of the item.

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
85

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)

    The thread lenght, of base, is shorter than 'normal', have one ceiling fixture that the bulb would not make electrical contact. Works in other fixtures, ceiling and table.

        Comments about Megalight, Inc. 60W Incandescent Equivalent. 13 Watt, 120 Volt Daylight White CFL Bulb:

        It was not easy to find a replacement bulb for my fish tank, which needs 6500K light. This is the best fit I can find and it's brighter than my old 10W. But I am not sure about the 60W incandescent equivalent and how it was done.
        It's been used for about 200 hrs and too early to comment on the 10,000 hr life. Hope it will last that long.

          Can these bulbs be used with a 3-way switch?

            A:

            This product is not a three-way bulb and should not be used in a three-way fixture or socket. We do offer three-way compact fluorescents on our website and they can be found using the following link. http://www.bulbs.com/Compact_Fluorescent_Screw--in/results.aspx?Ntt=3-way

            A:

            Not well. You might be able to get the light to come on, but not at the variable light brightness levels. 3-way lamps will require a 3-way bulb.
