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

Incandescent/Halogen Equivalent

The wattage value of an incandescent or halogen lamp of similar brightness.
 
Incandescent/Halogen Equivalent
40 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

Base

The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
 
Base
Candelabra (E12)

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".

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
82

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)
5100

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the initial 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

Bulb Finish

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

Bulb Technology

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

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)
8000

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)
4.6

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)
1.75

Contains Mercury (Hg)

Contains some level of the element Mercury. Typically, bulbs containing Mercury display the symbol 'Hg'.

Good bulbs if you are not in a hurry

We needed a colder light (5000 ºK or higher) for the new ceiling fan in the kitchen, as the ones that came with it were yellowish incandescent bulbs that did not provide much light. The CFL bulbs provide great light, despite being a tad low (the kitchen ceiling is lower than the rest of the apartment). Unfortunately, they take quite some time to warm up, so we tend to keep them on. This probably defeats the purpose of having energy-efficient bulbs, although it makes the kitchen looks nice.

We are extremely happy with these. I have not been able to find anything other than the soft white in stores. This really made it much brighter in the room and that was exactly what I wanted to do!
