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).

good service poor ordering by me


I bought the wrong product. When I saw yuour add it stated that the item had a 4 prong connection, I thought there was only one type but there was 2. You only had the 4 prong horizontal connection and I needed the four prong square connection. As far as I can determine the item I need is no longer manufactured and therefore I will get the lamp rewired to accomodate the item you sent me. I am thoroughly satified with your service and would both use it again and recommend it to anyone looking for lamp bulbs.

Philips 18W 4 Pin 2G11 Cool White Long Single Twin Tube CFL Bulb

4.8 9


Q & A
I recently purchased a Normandy model HP3-1384 desk top crafter's lamp, which did not have a bulb. A label on the lamp says to use an 18 watt, 120V type PL bulb and it requires a four prong bulb and the space is large enough to accommodate a twin bulb of approximately 9 inches long. I'm trying to determine if this bulb will work.

Bob L

There is not much information to be found on the lamp. This makes it difficult to determine if this bulb would be suitable. This bulb is a plug-in compact fluorescent, 18 watts and is less than 9" in length. The only real question is the base type needed. We recommend checking the socket to check the pin configuration. If the pin configuration of the socket is a straight row, then this bulb would be correct to use in the lamp.
