This GE Capsule is designed for use in ceiling fans that accommodate common 40 watt incandescent light bulbs on non-dimming circuits.The bulb will provide approximatelyThe same amount of light as a 40 watt incandescent light bulb, but only use 11 watts of electricity. Fluorescent lamps use low pressure mercury vapor to produce ultra-violet light that, in turn, is converted into visible light by a phosphor coating onThe inside ofThe glass tube. Type: fluorescent. Shape: A-Lamp (A17). Lumens is a measure ofThe quantity of light (luminous flux). 550 lumens is similar toThe amount of light produced by a 40 to 60 watt incandescent bulb. Light Output: 550 lumens. Efficacy equalsThe total light output (lumens) divided byThe total power input (watts). Efficacy: 50 lm/w. Color temperature is a measure ofThe color ofThe light, expressed in degrees Kelvin (K). Lower color temperatures are orange/red in color (warm white), with higher temperatures more blue/white (cool white). 2,700 K is considered warm white. Color Temperature: 2,700 degrees Kelvin . The color rendering index (CRI) relates toThe effect of a light source onThe appearance of objects.The closerThe CRI is to 100,The betterThe color rendition. A CRI of 80 or higher is considered good. Color Rendering: 82 CRI . Average rated life isThe length of time at which half of a statistical sample of bulbs were still operational. Incandescent bulbs typically last for 800 to 1,000 hours. Fluorescent bulbs typically last from 6,000 to 12,000 hours. Rated Average Life: 10,000 hours. Dimmable: No. Three-way: No. Minimum Start Temperature: -5 degrees Fahrenheit (-15 degrees Celsius). Compact fluorescent lamps contain small amounts of mercury, generally ranging from 1 to 5 mg per lamp. All lamps should be recycled, rather than disposed of inThe trash. Average Mercury Content: Not published by manufacturer. An E26 medium screw base isThe base type used on most common light bulbs. Base Type: E26 medium screw base
