FALSE ADVERTISING. 25W bulb shipped.
on February 5, 2016
I purchased and received an item that says it is 45 Watts and would resemble a 200 Watt bulb output, this is on the box. After leaving this plugged in to a lamp rated to handle up to a 125W bulb, the bulb only pulls 25 Watts. See image. Further, while the light looks about 5500K as advertised, the brightness is not up to par. I have to return it. For a bulb, this is not cheap. When I pay for something advertised to perform at a certain level, I want what I put out good money for. I can pick up 23W 5500K bulbs cheaply if that is what I had wanted. I particularly dislike that a seller would intentionally mislead and lie. This is FALSE ADVERTISING. Shame on ePhoto. I recommend you do not buy from this seller.
UPDATE: I just put in a different 200W-replacement CFL bulb, a 42W by Luxrite. It warmed up to a bright, 5000K coloration, 2820 lumens, and the kill-a-watt showed 36W draw. Better.
