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.

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".

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)

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)

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.
Customer Reviews

Perfect bulbs for my ceiling fan


You guys are lifesavers! After visiting several major hardware stores in my area, nobody seemed to carry the right type of light bulb(s) for my ceiling fan. After exhausting all possible options, I ultimately wound up finding the right bulb(s) for my ceiling fan. I have a Hunter ceiling fan in my bedroom that requires a candelabra (E12) B-9 shaped type of bulb. They fit perfectly into the socket and leave enough room on the edge (just slightly) of the cover. Unfortunately, the cover does become a bit hot to the touch. Just like every other bulb, you must give it a minute or two to cool off before replacing. I would say the only downfall is that the shipping is a bit outrageous. For a bulb that can fit into the palm of my hand, I don't understand why shipping is $9.95 for three (3) bulbs. Other than that, the packaging is great and the bulb(s) came here in a timely manner. I look forward to doing business with this company for several years.

A Perfect 10!


This chandelier based bulb is perfect for those fixtures requiring the shorter 3 1/8 inch length. We have one of those, and any longer bulb simply won't fit. We ordered 10 bulbs, and all 10 worked on arrival. Even with shipping charges included, we got 10 for the price of 3 elsewhere. Good bulbs and good buy, so what more could you ask?

Finally Found


These bulbs are shorter than most chandelier bulbs, but are the only ones my shades will fit on. I searched every lighting supply store in St. Louis for them with no success. I even searched on other Websites. carries them and it's Website was easy to use and delivery was prompt. My only complaint was that I found the shipping charges to be excessive.
