Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
14 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
Medium (E26)

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
R-20

Bulb Color

The color of the light produced by a bulb
 
Bulb Color
Warm White

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)
2700

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)
495

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)
4.25

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)
2.5

          These bulbs will save me money, but waiting a couple of minutes to warm up and get bright is a major disadvantage.

            Comments about TCP 50 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, ENERGY STAR Qualified 14 Watt, R20 Warm White Compact Fluorescent Medium Base Bulb:

            I was delighted to find such a cheap price on PAR20 CFL's. After I installed them, I could see why they're so cheap. The light is so dim, I can barely see my shoes. It takes a good 15-30 seconds to warm up enough to be able to see my shoes. After they warm up, they're excellent. But it takes too long for me, so I returned them.

              I am happy with the quality of light and the energy savings but very slow to turn on compared to others I have used. Not bad enough for me to return but takes some getting use to (at least so far in winter)
