Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Light up your home with Globe Enersaver bulbs and save in energy costs. With a growing concern for reducing energy consumption, Globe's compact fluorescent bulbs are a must in every home. CFLs use approximately 70% less energy than incandescent bulbs and produce the same light output. One CFL bulb lasts from 8,000 to 10,000 hours or up to 10 years. This saves you money in energy costs and bulb purchases when compared to regular incandescent bulbs.

Buying Guide

Five Tips for Buying Compact Fluorescent Bulbs

Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFLs) are energy-saving replacements for incandescent light bulbs. Below you will find information to assist you in choosing the right bulb.

How do incandescent bulbs and CFLs compare?
Incandescent bulbs produce light by passing electricity through a small wire filament, heating it until it glows. Compact fluorescent lamps use an efficient chemical reaction to produce light, which requires 66%-75% less electricity to produce the same light output as a comparable incandescent bulb. CFLs are also cooler than incandescent bulbs and last considerably longer. CFLs are available in the familiar range of styles and colors to suit different applications, including standard round, candelabra, flood, track, three-way, dimmable, indoor, and outdoor.

What are the different base types of compact fluorescent bulbs?
CFLs are available in three base types: screw base, pin base, and GU24.

  • Screw base bulbs, which have the familiar Edison screw socket, are the type used to replace existing incandescent bulbs. Simply swap out the old incandescent bulb for your new CFL and save significant energy costs. 
  • Pin-base CFLs have small plastic bases with two or four pins and are designed to be used with separate ballasts mounted in fixtures designed for pin-base CFLs.
  • The GU24 socket and base system is designed to replace the Edison socket and base in energy efficient lighting fixtures to match the newest ENERGY STAR requirements. Fixtures that use GU24 bulbs are designed to avoid backward compatibility with screw base bulbs, guaranteeing higher energy efficiency.

How long do the bulbs last?
CFLs can last 8,000 to 15,000 hours depending on quality while incandescent bulbs typically last 750 to 1,000 hours.

What types of lighting can I get with CFLs?
While many people are familiar with the bluish-white flicker of a hospital hallway illuminated by old-style 48-inch fluorescent bulbs, in fact a broad range of colors are available. The common colors range from a "soft white", to a medium white to a "daylight" color that has more blue and less yellow. Additionally, a range of novelty colors are available (red, black, green, etc.) including yellow, which is ideal for outdoor lighting as it does not attract insects. For indoor lighting of living spaces, choose a cooler temperature light, while for garages or work areas use the brighter and bluer daylight CFLs which cast a wider area of illumination. If you are using a dimmable fixture, you will need to purchase a CFL specifically designed for dimming; standard CFLs do not have that function.

How do I dispose of CFLs?
Some municipalities allow for regular trash disposal while others require disposal at a hazardous waste facility, or recycling facility. Contact your local waste collection service or municipality for the policy in your area.

Bulbs are great minis, but the light they emit are more blue than white. One more thing, the price really isn't worth it, as others have noted. Just a week after buying them, Costco had real white ones for sale for less than $4 for a package of 8 (and that's after taxes)

I've had all 8 of these in use for over a month and have had no problems. They are so much smaller than some of the others, but just as bright. The light is EXTREMELY white. I went from regular bulbs to another set of fluorescent and I thought the change was drastic. I then replaced those fluorescent with these and WOW!! Much whiter! My hallway felt like a parking garage the first few days, but I'm use to it now and they work great!

I dont know where everybody finds their mini compact bulbs, but for some reason here in Salt Lake City, they have become increasingly scarce, with the exception of colored bulbs, which i had no need of. Anyway, i was glad to find some here, and even though they seem expensive to me, the fact that they have a 9 year guarantee, and the fact that i could actually find them made this purchase a no brainer. Currently (April 2012), they are 25% off as well, which is great. I have a few lamps that require this size, and the light output is more than adequate. Anyways, that's pretty much all i can think of right now, but if you have any questions, dont hesitate to ask.

Enjoy!

I really like this product and I was searching for these CFLs for a long time! This is a great product! It is what I have expected, but the thing is I want another one and they don't have more of this product in stock. I have no problem with this product. I like the color, its fast to light on.
