Please refer to the photo I uploaded. It is only 25.6 watt after warmed up. The 45 watt label is completely misleading. Usually a 26 watt CFL costs less than $3.

As noted by another reviewer, these are NOT 45W bulbs. Also these bulbs are NOT the 3.5" x 8" as described, but rather 2.25" x 7".

This won't mean much to non-techies, but the measured current on these bulbs is .18A which means they are NOT 45W but rather 22W. When placed side-by-side with Feit 40W bulbs these are much dimmer.

Dear Reader, Listen Carefully. This seller is a con artist, these are the wrong bulbs, they are less than 26 watts, they are not 45 watts like the site says, even on the bulb it says they are 45 watts, but that is a lie. If you are growing cannabis, do not buy these. If you are a photographer do not buy these. In other words, bait and switch where you the buyer thinks they are getting something for a good deal, and instead you are taken as a fool.

Been using these for growing indoor plants for a couple or months now. They last and provide great brightness! Overall, great CFLs!

When I received the bulbs there was one broken but the seller refunded the amount for the one that I wasn't able to use. They seem to be very high quality and meet my photography needs. I would buy again.

I use quite a few of these in my continuous light bank for wet plate photography. The 'full spectrum' is important in this work because the processes are only sensitive to the blue and UV portions of the light spectrum. These bulbs have enough output in those wavelengths to work for me.

The only thing that bothers me is that there is no lumen rating for this bulb. Therefore, how the hell do I find out how much light I'm getting based off of just wattage and color temperature(kelvin)? Aside from purchasing a meter to measure for myself. This is my only dilemma. I guess I'll purchase a few and see how my plants react while flowering.

I paid too much for what I got. They are decent light, way too fragile so only 3 of them came in good shape. I like led bulbs better, same light color but they are less fragile and last a lot longer.

The good news is these bulbs do not use 42watts, as advertised: my meter measured them at 24 watts @ 120v. Unfortunately, that's the end of the good news. The bulbs give a slight greyish light and are no brighter that the 100w Daylight CFL's I purchased at Walmart for about $6 each. I don't have the equipment to measure lumens, but the shadow cast by each bulb appears to be very much the same level.

I suspect the factory mis-labeled the numbers (45w instead of 25w), somebody translated that to 200w equivalents and now they are half price to clear out the mistake. Mine have been relegated to garage ceiling lights where I'm less concerned about the temperature of the light.

So all in all, not a horrible deal if you can live with the greyish tint, though if you need a high quality daylight bulb, keep shopping.
