This item ended up being too long for my porchlight fixture. I have since seen others at a hardware store that are more compact and wish I had known. It only uses incandescent and I ended up having to buy a very small bulb just so I could squeeze it in. It looks a little goofy, and I did consider purchasing and searched for a different type of fixture, but thought it not worth the cost. Rather than use this, it is probably better to just buy a fixture with one built in.
Hopefully the extra bulkiness and length of this one, which really resembles the base of a compact fluorescent bulb, will help it will last longer.
