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).

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.

Q & A
Tell me about the difference between these bulbs and the ones that we hve been using for years. We have just purchased a new lamp that will handle a 150 Watt Bulb - bulbs to be soon extinct. Is the Metal Halide Lamp as bright or brighter that the older bulbs? Can you use the MNetal Halide Lamp in a regular lamp socket?


The Metal halide bulbs require a ballast and cannot be used in a standard socket. Most likely the fixture requires an incandescent 150-watt bulb. The metal halides are not meant to be a replacement for the incandescent bulbs. We do still offer some 150-watt bulbs on our website. Also, the fixture can take up to 150-watts. A lower wattage bulb can still be used once the 150-watt bulbs are no longer being sold.
