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-19

Base

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

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.

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)
350

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).

Comments about Greenlite Corp. 40 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 8 Watt, Clear A19 Wet-Location Rated Cold Cathode Lamp.:

For some reason I thought that because this bulb is advertised as "flashable" it would not have a warm up period. The warmup actually seems longer than a standard CFL.

This bulb does not produce the same amount of light as a 40 watt incandescent. A 40 watt incandescent produces 450 lumens. This bulb isn't even advertised to have a brightness close to that.

That said, this bulb does dim nicely. I would recommend using this bulb as a decorative light instead of a replacement for a standard 40 watt bulb. If you have decorative lights on a standard base and a dimmer these would be an excellent replacement. I just wish this wasn't falsely advertised.

      A:

      This product should not be used in totally enclosed fixtures. The fixture needs proper ventilation to allow heat to escape. Otherwise, the heat will affect the life and performance of the bulb.
