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".

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
84

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)

Q & A

Maxlite brand ENERGY STAR Qualified 23 Watt compact fluorescent reflector lamp. R40 size and shape replaces 125 Watt BR40 lamp and fits into the larger recessed lighting fixtures sometimes used in both homes and businesses. Warm white color and high color rendering mean you'll never know the difference, at least until you get your electric bill.

  • Outstanding energy efficiency - provides equivalent light to most 125 Watt incandescent BR40 lamps while using only 23 Watts of electricity

  • Outstanding life - 10,000 hour rated life is four to eight times as long as most incandescent lamps

  • Outstanding value - replace your existing lamps with more energy efficient technology, at a competitive price

NOT RECOMMENDED for use in enclosed fixtures or for use with control devices such as sensors or dimmers, may shorten lamp life

    Comments about MaxLite 125 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 23 Watt, R40 Warm White Compact Fluorescent Medium Base Bulb:

    Since moving to these bulbs our energy use has been dramatically reduced versus the old incandescent R-40's. These newer generation replacement bulbs brighten faster and have a very pleasing warm white color temp. We replaced 6 old bulbs in our kitchen and now power 6 of these for the same wattage as 1 of the old!

          I love the produce, but it did not fit into the standard can light fixtures we have. It would be nice if you could show a photo of the various "can" fixtures and the appropriate size bulb to use. We did re-order and have returned the wrong sized bulbs. [...]

            We use these as general light in our furniture showroom. They are bright, but don't compete with the natural colors of the furniture, as they don't leave a blue or green cast. They cast a warm, bright light, with little shadowing.

                A:

                Yes, this can be used in an outdoor application, however, CFL lamps do not perform well in cold applications. We would suggest using an LED for highest performance in an outdoor application. Please contact one of our certified Lighting Specialists at 888-455-2800 for further assistance.

            • Q:

              I plan to use this product to light a horse's stalls. The receptacle into which the bulb will go, does not have a reflector, but the base screws down inside the receptacle about 1.5 to 2 inches. I need to know if the white "ceramic" looking part of the base (not the screw part) will fit down inside this part of the receptacle. What is the diameter of the white part of the base?

              I will purchase a case of the bulbs if it will fit.

              Thanks for your help.
