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.

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
T-8

Base

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 (°)

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
83

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 Philips 14.5 Watt, 48" T8 Neutral White LED Bulb:

        Nice light. Helps with keeping an area that isn't cooled cooler. The light is a little brighter than I expected, believe it or not the neutral light acts very closely in color to a bright white fluorescent. This light will definitely serve its purpose, which is lighting in a commercial office.

        Comments about Philips 14.5 Watt, 48" T8 Neutral White LED Bulb:

        I was hesitant to try LED tubes due to needing to rewire and being unsure of the light output. The Philips instafit line eliminates the need to rewire which made testing it a no brainer. The light output is better than the flourescent tubes they are replacing at less than half the power.

          Comments about Philips 14.5 Watt, 48" T8 Neutral White LED Bulb:

          Use this to replace 4' T-8 anywhere you already have instant start ballast. Easy as changing the tube. Good quality of light and bright with high or low ballast factor. I have some of each ballast factors. CREE just released a comparavle product that also does not require changing ballast - looking forward to trying it too.

                Comments about Philips 14.5 Watt, 48" T8 Neutral White LED Bulb:

                As far as i know I have modern instant on fixtures. I tried 4 different bulbs in two different fixtures and they did not light. Then when i go to return the item I am told that I cant because the packaging was damaged. The bulbs arrived tightly taped in bubble wrap so that the practical way to open the package (other than tediously trying to peal the tape) is to use a knife to get at the bulbs. So now I have completely wasted my money. Don't take a chance on these. Still can't believe Bulbs.com wont stand behind their products. Last time I buy from them.

                    No, the Philips InstantFit LED will only operate with an electronic instant start ballast.
