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".

Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).

      I have seen some comments on this site that various bulbs, including this one, hum or buzz. I have been using this bulb daily for several weeks. It is completely silent. I am pleased with this bulb. I replaced an incandescent bulb in a bedroom lamp that is on an X-10 automation/remote control system. It is bright and works well with this system.

                • Q:

                  I need bulbs for a dimable candelabra, but the shades are only 4". This doesn't say what the length of the bulb is. The lamp info says it takes 5 x 100 watt medium base bulbs. Any information you have would be appreciated.

                  Thanhks!

                  • CUSTOMER CARE

                    A:

                    A: The overall length of this bulb is 4.8", including the base. This should fit in the recessed fixture. We do recommend that the fixture not be enclosed and have proper ventilation. The bulbs contains an integrated ballast and if too much heat builds up in the fixture then it will shorten the life of the bulb.
