Energy Used

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


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.


The end (or ends) of the lamp that fits into the socket.
Medium Skirted

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 Color

The color of the light produced by a bulb

Warm White


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.

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)

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)

Bulb Finish

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

Bulb Technology

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

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)

Beam Angle (°)

The width of a light beam, expressed in degrees. The beam angle is often part of the ordering code for reflector lamps. For example, a 50PAR30/HIR/NFL25 is a 50-watt PAR30 narrow flood lamp with a beam angle of 25 degrees.
Beam Angle (°)

Class and Filament

A designation used to describe the shape or structure of the filament in an incandescent or halogen light bulb. Most commonly used for specialty products like rough service and antique replica lamps.
Class and Filament
C, CC-8

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)

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)


Indicates whether a bulb can be dimmed in conjunction with a suitable dimmer control.

The most lumens for my application


I love the search engine that allows a person to find the best bulb for their application. This bulb has the most lumens of any bulb meeting my requirements for long life and cool operation.


Laramie, WY


Performs as described!


I was pleased that the web site gives the beam width of flood and spot lights. The 40 degree beam of these lights is what was needed for our kitchen. The higher output for the same wattage compared with regular halogen bulbs was great - the higher price - no problem - for the kitchen, I am not interested in pinching pennies - I have to be able to see what I am doing and it is safer that way.


Fredericksburg VA


A great discovery!


This is looking great so far. We have only had it a month, but the light is very bright, and just "white" enough. Much brighter than the standard 120W halogen floods (like Bulbrite). As long as it lasts over 4,000 hours as Philips claims, it will save us money versus using those shorter-life, 120W Halogen floods. One thing to note - brand-new bulbs have something that rattles in their bases. I called Philips to make sure our bulb wasn't broken, but they confirmed this bulb actiually is supposed to have something loose and rattley in its base! She didn't know why, however.

Excellent Service


Replace halogen lites and it gave much more light than regular halogens


Dalton MA


Super product


These bulbs are replacing 300 watt floods, with the same light output. Been in service for over a year and have not replaced any. Great energy saver.

Q & A
Do they make a 150 watt IR Halogen 40 beam bulb?


At this time, I'm not aware of any IR Halogen PAR lamps that are over 100 watts of energy.


base size does it fit regular house socket?


The base on this bulb is a standard size screw base and measures approximately 1" in diameter. This base would fit a standard household socket.
