Krypton/Xenon T3 Bulb
March 22, 2014
Great replacement for those decorative lighting applications especially as they can be operated in any position. Light output is as bright and has the same color as the now banned 60W tapered tungsten bulbs. Good replacement.
Shape is not identical to the tapered tungsten bulb but it should work in some applications.

Lots of light...little package
January 6, 2014
Have a ceiling fan that will take only one candelabra bulb. This seems like twice the light of the best 60W incandescent I could find.
Lumens = GREAT!

Krypton/Xenon bulbs
June 10, 2013
I replaced incandescent with Krypton/Xenon bulbs in our bathroom vanity light fixture. They made a huge difference. Light is so much brighter and whiter. Even replaced lights in walk-in closet. Again, huge difference. They are worth the price!

60-Watt 120-Volt Krypton/Xenon Candelabra Base T3 Light Bulb
April 25, 2013
Bought 3, needed 2 and one for replacement. Good thing, the first bulb I screwed in began to smoke and immediately burned out. I was skeptical about trying another, but both of the other bulbs worked very well.
Very bright and compact
Does throw off a lot of heat, so important to have a heat shield on socket for safety.

Three 60 watt bulbs for ceiling fan.
January 13, 2013
Got these to replace the 3 bulbs that came with my ceiling fan. The stock bulbs did not put out enough light for my taste. These bulbs I bought are just a little brighter. They put out a soft light which I like in my house. I wanted a 4100 kelvin bulb instead but glad I did not go that way. These seem to put out between 2700 and 3500 kelvin. Being still a soft light or warm light as others would put it. Got the clear ones instead of the frosted ones. My ceiling fan has white glass that covers the bulbs. So the harsh light off the bulb is already being less hurtful on the eyes. If you are going with the bulbs that will be exposed then get the frosted ones. That's just my thought.
Brighter. Room is more lit.

Finally light from a 60W Candelabra base bulb
December 28, 2012
I was considering changing out our ceiling fan fixture, because the room was so dark. I purchased 5 of the bulbs for our kitchen fixture and our computer room fixture. The light output has almost doubled.

So Far So Good (& Bright)
December 11, 2012
I have two ceiling fans that came with candelabra base 60 watt (max) incandescent bulbs. They did not throw sufficient light for the rooms they are in. I replaced them with these Krypton/Xenon bulbs and am very pleased with the results -- much brighter. They are, of course, much more expensive but the improvement is worth every penny. What remains to be seen is how well the brightness holds up over the life of the bulb (the lumens rating says "initial.") And whether the bulbs do last as long as claimed (3000 hours). In the mean time, I have no criticism of the bulbs only praise. So far so good!

We have a sconce that only handles low wattage lights and is too small for any of the low wattage, high illumination compact fluorescents. This bulb is tiny enough to fit the candelabra size-space but doubled the light from the sconce. Very helpful!

a little pricey for a light bulb

Questions & Answers
By Stephen Price from Florida on November 19, 2012
What is the color temperature output in Kelvin for this light bulb?
I am currently using 3 incandescent light bulbs (60 watts each) that put out
2700 Kelvin. (Don't like it that much. Want brighter light output).
My goal is to stay with a 60 watt bulb that puts out around 4100 Kelvin.
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on November 19, 2012


These light bulbs emit warm white light similar to incandescent light bulbs.
By Scott from Indianapolis, Indiana on November 19, 2012

I just bought 4 of these bulbs. They are a bit more white than a standard incandescent. But not too white. My guess would be around 3000-3500 Kelvin.

By Danny from Florida on September 8, 2014
Will these give off too much heat in an enclosed globe? I would like to replace the three 60w that came with my fan.

Will you see the filament under a frosted globe?

Will there be a more defined shape/location of the bulb under frosted globe versus a frosted bulb?

"Initial lumens"?

Thank you
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on September 8, 2014


They are a type of incandescent so they will give off a lot of heat. If your existing fan is using an incandescent light bulb than there should not be an issue with heat management.

Whether you can see the filament in your globe would depend on how translucent the globe is. If this is a concern for you then use the frosted model.

Lumens depend on whether you choose clear or frosted model. Please see table in the description for this model info.
By Leslie from Moorestown, NJ on September 8, 2014

We are using ours in a frosted half globe fan as pictured. Cannot tell if they give off too much heat, due to the fan being too high up, but we have had the bulbs in there for at least half a year, and no problems. I did check the wattage to make sure it was okay. You do not see the bulb shape through the globe. Not sure what you mean by initial lumens, but these give off the same light initially that they do after warming up, as far as I can tell. We also have them in a chandelier fixture and they do not seem to be too hot for the plastic/linen 4-5" shades that go over them (however, those shades are not fully enclosed.)
By Thomas from Pittsburgh, PA on September 8, 2014

There is a direct correlation between heat and watts so there should not be any heat issues. The frosted globe should shield the lamp image, but it will depend on the density of the frosting and the distance between lamp and globe. The xenon will produce about 10% more light than a 60 watt incandescent. The initial lumens are 960. You will also get 3 times the life with the xenon.
By Thomas from Fremont, NE on September 8, 2014

No - not too much heat. I have these installed in a bathroom fixture with a frosted glass casing tight around the bulb, and it is fine. In my fixture, you cannot see the filament under a frosted globe/casing. As to the 3rd question, I don't think so but that is all personal preference. I prefer frosted bulbs to clear, but I purchased the clear for my particular fixture and am happy with the result. I don't understand the last question, but it is plenty bright.
By Fred from New Freedom, PA on September 8, 2014

I had a half open frosted globe on a ceiling fan and could not use the bulb because the bulb got very hot. I liked the amount of light the bulb provided. I did not look that hard to see if the filament could be seen.
By Hans from Lockport, NY on September 9, 2014

We bought the clear bulbs, and since they are so small, smaller than a pinkie finger, they do not show at all through our frosted globe. Our globe is open at the top and we have had no problem with heat from the bulbs. When you see how small they are, you will see. Also they give off an amazing amount of light compared to the 60w candelabra bulbs we were using before. I'm sure you will be happy.

What is the specified color temperature?

By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on May 11, 2015

The color temperature is 3000K, warm white.

By Thomas Fink from Heathsville, Virginia on March 5, 2014
Can this lamp be operated in any position including with the base up instead of down as shown in the picture?
By Jacob from Pegasus Lighting on March 6, 2014

Yes it can be operated in any position.
By Leslie from Moorestown, NJ on March 6, 2014

Yes. I am using these bulbs in a traditional chandelier with base down and in a ceiling fan light with base up. After much research, I believe they are the highest lumen 60Watt chandelier bulb available. Very pleased with this purchase.
By Chris from Oakland, California on March 6, 2014

I am using over a dozen of these bulbs and I would assume so since in all my fixtures they are mounted horizontally with no problem. I don't see any reason that mounting them base up would affect their performance other than possibly heat considerations in your particular fixture.
By Jeff from New Hampshire on March 6, 2014

I have used them in three Kitchen lighting fixtures with the bulb in the "base up" configuration for at least a year without any issues.
By Stanley from Fuquay Varina, NC on March 6, 2014

Yes. I put it in a ceiling fan. Works great!
