        Even though it was the same model number, bulb that I received was different than what was shown on website and the bulb I was replacing. Luckily it still fit into my ceiling fan.

                California code requires fluorescent lamps in the kitchen. These bulbs offer an alternative to the icky blue light that fluorescents usually emit.

                    Our old bulb came with the fixture and it lasted so long. This bulb has warmer light which I love. I probably will order a spare real soon.

                        It appears that it may, however, we would need to confirm the if this bulb also has a 4-pin base and if the ballast will work with a slightly higher wattage. Please contact Customer Service at 888-455-2800 for further assistance.
