A 40-watt, 120-volt krypton/xenon candelabra base T3 light bulb in clear bulb color that can be used in line voltage lighting systems, including chandeliers, outdoor lighting, sconces, vanity fixtures, portables, and ceiling fixtures.
I needed something with more lumens than the original candelabra-based wimpy bulbs that came with our ceiling fan. These bulbs are rated at double the lumens and they REALLY work well!! We'll see how long that extra brightness lasts, but, 3 weeks into it, I am very pleased.
Pros: Extra bright output. Smaller than the bulbs I replaced. Can be touched with bare fingers (unlike halogen).
I have a ceiling fan that requires a physically small bulb. Had a very difficult time finding one. This bulb is fantastic. It is small but puts out 100 more lumens for the same wattage as the old bulbs.
Pros: Same wattage as old bulb with more light. Should have longer life as well.
I want to use these in an arc lamp over a sofa. The individual lamps pods do not have any glass coverings. Most halogens have warnings about high pressure and possible bursting... These are not halogens but I was wondering if this application exposed over people is OK.
Yes, it's fine to use these in that application. Bursting is not an issue.
Question from Stephanie:
Hi, how does the light output compare between the clear and frosted bulb? I suspect the frosted bulb diffuses the light. I want to use these in pendant lights over a granite island and cook top. Thank you.
The tube has a diameter of 3/8in. The overall length is 2-7/16in.
Question from Elizabeth:
I have a light fixture that calls for 40 watt type b bulbs. Can this bulb work in that fixture? Also, in regards to another fixture, assuming it works in fixtures that call for a candelabra bulb, correct.
Elizabeth, It has a candelabra base, so it will fit in fixtures that use candelabra bulbs of a comparable size. It possibly will fit in your fixture that calls for B type light bulbs. It will depend on the diameter/length of the B type light bulbs it uses.
