Product Details

Brand

TCP

Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
9 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
PAR-20

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Medium (E26)

Beam Spread (°)

The width of a light beam, expressed in degrees. The beam spread is often part of the ordering code for reflector lamps. For example, a 50PAR30/HIR/NFL25 is a 50-watt PAR30 narrow flood lamp with a beam spread of 25 degrees.
 
Beam Spread (°)
25

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)
2.5

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)
3.5

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)
50,000

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

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)
2700K

Center Beam Candle Power

Center Beam Candle Power(CBPC), or Maximum Beam Candle Power(MBCP), represents the intensity of delivered light that falls onto a surface area. Delivered light describes how much useful light a bulb can deliver to a task area and is the best and most relevant measurement for evaluating LEDs and for making accurate comparisons with conventional lighting. Evaluating an LED solely or primarily on the basis if its lumen output can underestimate or otherwise give a distorted picture of the LED's performance and suitability for a given task or application.
 
Center Beam Candle Power
2,000

Bulb Technology

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

Bulb Finish

The surface finish of a bulb, which may affect the quality of the light emitted.
 
Bulb Finish
Clear

Bulb Color

The color of the light produced by a bulb
 
Bulb Color
Warm White

Dimmable

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

Q & A

TCP Brand DIMMABLE 9 Watt narrow flood lamp generates as much light as many 50 Watt traditional halogen lamps. Can smoothly dim down to 5% power.

  • Perfect to use anywhere you are using a 50 Watt PAR20 halogen lamp

  • No lead or mercury means easy and environmentally safe disposal

  • 450 Lumens initial light output is comparable to most 50 Watt halogen lamps, while saving 41 Watts in electricity

  • VERY long life - rated to still put out 70% as much light after 50,000 hours of operation as it does when brand new

CHECK PRODUCT FIT BEFORE INVESTING IN MANY-Product May Not Fit in Your Fixture.  Also, NOT RECOMMENDED for use in enclosed fixtures because heat buildup can shorten life.  DO NOT "hot swap" this lamp.  Turn off fixture before replacing existing bulb.

      Comments about TCP 9 Watt, 120 Volt DIMMABLE 50,000-Hr LED PAR20 Bulb - Similar to Incandescent:

      This lamp produces 450 lumens. That's about equivalent to a 40w halogen, not a 50w as advertised, and that was my experience in actual usage. It produces beautiful warm white light, but not much of it.

        Comments about TCP 9 Watt, 120 Volt DIMMABLE 50,000-Hr LED PAR20 Bulb - Similar to Incandescent:

        We sampled both Philips and TCP bulbs both had impressive specs but in actual side by side comparisons test TCP was the clear winner. We have in use the Philips PAR 38 LED 25 degree flood, for over a year and like the product but TCP had a more effective light pattern, more usable light reached the area (where the Philips was more dispersed or diffused) the color was warm (2700 degrees). Nice product TCP keep it up and I hope your life span estimates are accurate.

        Comments about TCP 9 Watt, 120 Volt DIMMABLE 50,000-Hr LED PAR20 Bulb - Similar to Incandescent:

        While it is great that this light is dimmable, it doesn't actually get that dim compared to a conventional 65W par 30 bulb I replaced. We use this in a hallway that is on all night, so we wanted to have something that uses little energy. It is definitely as bright as a 65W bulb, but only uses 9W! The only downside is that the beam spread is kind of narrow (25 degrees) for this use. Also, you can be blinded if you look straight at it, which doesn't happen with a conventional bulb. It might be bright, but not blinding. Overall, a great choice for common areas that are on all the time and need a low energy use, long lasting light.
