When I bought 6 Jan 2011 the description said:
"SYLVANIA 65-Watt 130-Volt BR30 Indoor Flood, 6-Pack Consumer Value Pack # 65BR30 CVP 6PK"
"Voltage: 130 volts"
I _AGREE_ that Amazon should SHOUT that these are 130V lamps, AND that they will be LESS-BRIGHT and LAST LONGER when used on common 115V-125V supply.
But 130V incandescent lamps ARE a common practice for certain situations.
130V lamps on 120V power last 2.5 times longer!!
As a rough guide: if incandescent lamp replacement costs (salary, ladder, downtime) are more than the bulb, you will probably save money by using the next higher voltage bulb.
"for houses that don't exist (who has 130 volt lines?)"
Many-many homes now get 125V power. I have 124V. Standard 120V-design lamps burn bright and die early.
"...for houses that do exist they'll be dimmer than the advertised 65w."
Yes, although "65W" is not the light, it is the power consumed at nominal 130V voltage. Both power and light will be less at 120V, but life will be longer.
The Sylvania box is quite clear:
Performance === at 130V = at 120V
Watts actual: ===== 65 ----- 57
Lumens (light): === 640 ---- 470
Lifetime avg: ==== 2000 --- 5000
Yes, 73% as much light for 88% as much electric bill, but _250%_ as much life!
When replacement cost is small, such as home undercounter lights, 130V lamps are a bad buy.
When line-voltage is near 125V (which is very common), 120V lamps have short life, 130V lamps may be a better balance of life and light.Read more ›
I moved into my house 3.5 yrs ago and the flood lights were still going strong even though I had them on about 9 hrs a day and my electric bill was very reasonable (14 flood lights). I was impressed but didn't think much of it. About 8 months ago one burned out and I figured they will all start to go so I picked up six, same brand, same wattage. Eventually another bulb went out and I replaced that two.
Then the bulb I had just replaced went out. I was puzzled. Why were the original bulbs still going strong (3.5 yrs) and the one I replaced had gone out. So I took the new bulb and one of the old bulbs, put them side by side and started to read. The only difference was the volts, old 130, new 120. So i went on the internet and the mystery was explained. Not only do the 130v last longer by years, they also use less electricity.
The folks we bought the house from were in it for 2 years. All the flood lights are the same so that leads me to believe they didn't replace any either until I replaced the first one. So, in my estimation, some of the flood lights that I have not replaced are still doing well after 3.5 yrs and maybe even 5.5 yr. No 120v bulb has done that (know from my old house.)
So, yes, 130v for me all the way. The 120v does burn a little brighter but nothing that is noticeable without a hard stare. For me, though, longevity wins.
It has heavy branding on the surface, so you can easily see the marking, even from an angle. It is dim by comparison and I believe that is due to the extremely poor diffusion of the light (you can easily see the glow of the filament compared to all other bulbs. That means that the bulb has little diffusion of the light across its' surface. This is much like comparing a clear bulb to a frosted bulb.
I'll have to switch these junko's out, throw out the rest of what I bought, and get something suitable to a home environment (these are probably acceptable in a warehouse environment). Unfortunately, Sylvania has left such a bad taste in my mouth that I cannot take a risk on their other grades of bulbs.
