Brand

Philips

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

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
A-Style

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)
2.25

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

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)
25000

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)
450

Finish

Light bulbs: the coating applied to the bulb causing light to be emitted in certain colors or color temperatures (see Color Temperature). Popular finishes include clear, frosted, colors (amber, blue, green, red, etc.) as well as color temperature designations ranging from warm white (2700K) to natural daylight (6500K). Fixtures: the decorative finish of the item.
 
Finish
Frost

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
80

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)
2700K

Bulb Technology

The technology implemented by the bulb, e.g. incandescent, halogen, LED

LED

Dimmable

Indicates whether a bulb can be dimmed in conjunction with a suitable dimmer control.

        Looks similar to an incandescent bulb, but runs cool, dims perfectly, color is equal to an incandescent bulb AND saves tons of wattage (energy). I have six of these in lamps with dmmers and 12 par 20's in canned lights. As they are on a good part of the day and evening, I know I'll see a nice drop in my electric bill.

            I use this bulb on my nightstand by the bed, and it works perfectly in this location. I purchased this bulb to test out the new LEDs in general, and whether it would work with my home's INSTEON dimmers, which it does, just fine.

              Finally, a regular looking light bulb that truly dims, takes the electricity of a nightlight and really works!!! And gives out "regular" home lighting.

              Admittedly, these bulbs are not cheap, but the dimming ability, the not heat, and of course electricity savings would be worth it in a lamp or in a light fixture used a great deal.

              In our case, these bulbs are in an antique 'Tiffany like" lamp between a couch and chair in the family room, so they are on day & night.

                Comments about Philips Lighting Company 8 Watt, 120 Volt Dimmable LED A-Style Lamp:

                After building many LED light fixtures, I bought my first two commercially produced LED bulbs, (made by Phillips). They look just like an old fashioned 40W incandescent in every way, but have a black aluminum heat sink on the base. They run on standard household AC, with a regular screw in base. Unlike compact fluorescents they are instant-on and are dimable. Light is pleasantly warm-white, better than a compact fluorescent, yet consumes just 8W for 450 lumens (same as 40W incandescent). Life expectancy is 25,000 hours. Price was [$] from Bulbs.com [...]. Looks far better in real life than shown in picture.The LED bulb is to the incandescent as the transistor is to the vacuum tube. Solid state lighting is here.

                  Comments about Philips Lighting Company 8 Watt, 120 Volt Dimmable LED A-Style Lamp:

                  This LED disperses light over a large area, very similar to an incandescent bulb. It throws a lot of light for a 40 watt equivalent. Everything about this bulb is very similar to an incandescent. It dims without any flicker, unlike some other LED bulbs. This bulb is visible in our kitchen lighting fixture. The yellow inside the bulb is kind of mysterious looking (and egg like) but it's really not noticeable. If people comment about it, it could be a good conversation starter about the energy efficiency of the bulb. While the LED light doesn't produce heat, the circuitry does, so these bulbs get hot at the base. It's not objectionable and I fully recommend this product. The Phillips products are the third LED manufacturer I have tried and they are definitely the best!

                      Unlike compact fluorescents, LEDs have no problem starting in cold temperatures, however this is not intended for use in outdoor weather.
