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
300 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
Spiral

Bulb Color

The color of the light produced by a bulb
 
Bulb Color
Bright 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)
5000

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)
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 product 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)
10.8

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

Awesome Light!!

I really like the light this bulb gives off. We use a lot of 300 watt incandescent bulb in warehouse fixtures & these CFLs give a much brighter light & don't generate all the heat. The only thing that could make them better would be less original cost.

Q & A
What is the minimum starting temperature?

Sparky

The operating temperature is 0- 100 degrees F.

Anonymous

Is this bulb compatible with a lamp that typically uses a "traditional" 300 watt lightbulb, i.e. is the size of the base with treads the same? Hope this makes sense :)

momnyc

Yes, this is a medium based CFL lamp. The maximum wattage of your fixture cannot exceed 80 watts of energy.
