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.

Some common Kelvin temperature benchmarks are 2700k (warm white), 3500k (neutral white), 4100k (cool white), 5000k (bright white), and 6500k (daylight).

      A:

      Provided the bulbs are being used with the proper ballast, it will not ruin the ballast or the bulb. Since this is an Econ-o-watt bulb Philips recommends that these bulbs not be used with low power factor, reduced light or reduced current, dimming or emergency system inverter ballasts. Bulbs should only be operated using high power factor lead, indoor ballasts. Philips also recommends that the bulbs not be used in drafty areas or locations where the ambient temperature is less than 60º F.
