Energy Used

A rating, expressed in watts, to indicate the rate at which a lamp consumes energy. Also known as wattage value.
 
Energy Used
80 Watts

Incandescent/Halogen Equivalent

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

HID Equivalent

The wattage value of a High Intensity Discharge (HID) bulb of similar brightness.
 
HID Equivalent
175

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
Quad Twin Tube

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
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)
2700

Brightness (Lumens)

A rating of the inital 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)
5500

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)
10000

Operating Temperature (°F)

The ambient temperature in which the lamp can safely operate.
 
Operating Temperature (°F)
0-100

Ballast Type

Magnetic ballasts are a legacy technology and use inductance to transform the line voltage to the voltage required to "fire" or excite the gasses in a lamp. Electronic ballasts use a variety of starting methods, and are more efficient than magnetic ballasts in converting input power to the proper lamp power and operate fluorescent lamps at higher frequencies, resulting in an overall lamp-ballast system – increasing efficacy 15% to 20% over a magnetic equivalent.
 
Ballast Type
Self Ballasted

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)
10.5

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)
3.5

Warranty

1 Year Manufacturer’s Warranty

Start Type

For Ballasts, indicates the method the ballast uses to start its bulbs. HID ballasts can be Probe or Pulse start. Fluorescent ballasts can be Rapid, Instant or Programmed start. For HID and Fluorescent bulbs, indicates the start-type of ballast that the bulb will work with.
 
Start Type
Instant

Contains Mercury (Hg)

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

Q & A

Maxlite brand 80 Watt compact fluorescent lamp with Medium base. 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 or greater light to most 175 Watt Metal Halide to 300 Watt Incandescent bulbs while using only 80 Watts of electricity

  • Outstanding life - 10,000 hour rated life is five to ten 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 with control devices such as sensors or dimmers, may shorten lamp life

Comments about MaxLite 400 Watt Incandescent Equivalent, 80 Watt, 120 Volt Warm White CFL Bulb:

I use in a homemade fixture.directed up to lite trees (alder & maple) at the outside egde of our yard. The effect is very dramatic and contributes to security. The resultant lite is soft, defused, and warm, making our yard and garden much more inviting and safe. We live in rural far northern coastal forest .Security for people and pets at night is an issue since we had a mountain lion ambush one of our cats (family pet for 22yrs.) off our front porch while he was drinking late one evening.He came out of the darkness, grabbed our old cat, and was gone before we could do anything.
This type lighting has made it possible for us to maintain affordable lighting for a much greater distance from the house, and they have increased our power bill very little, and it has been fun to watch all the other wild nightime visiters come and go thru the yard.
The only downside to florescent lighting is that it is not much use when first turned on......when you need immediate illumination.....as in an emergency. People who but them should realize that it takes ém a few minutes to give full illumination, especially when they are cold. It is nice that different color temps are available. We have complimented this lighting with various motion detecter floods that remain on for only a short time.
