Q & A

Philips brand 20 Watt halogen capsules.  T3 type, 12 volts for low voltage systems.  Low voltage means a smaller filament, for greater optical control.

  • Halogen lamps provide brighter, whiter light than incandescent bulbs, while maintaining outstanding color rendering

  • Perfect for undercabinet and accent lighting

  • Formerly product # 13078

DOUBLE CHECK the distance separating the two pins on your existing lamp.  They come in different sizes and if the pins do not match up correctly, the capsule will not fit properly. Distance between pin tips for this version is 4mm (0.16")

      • Q:

        Do this bulb come in a 6500k. Looking for a daylight bulb. The one a have now is 2800k. Don't like that yellowish looking light.

        • CUSTOMER CARE

          A:

          We do not offer this type of bulb in a 6500K-Kelvin Temperature. We can suggest using a xenon bulb instead of halogen. The xenon gas produces a brighter, whiter light. We do offer these on our website and they can be found using the following link. http://www.bulbs.com/Xenon_Lamps/T--3/results.aspx
