Product Overview

Simulate the brightness and vividness of natural daylight with this energy-efficient spiral CFL light bulb from Feit Electric. Each lamp puts out a substantial 2800-Lumens of light using just 40-Watt of power, consuming substantially less electricity than a 150-Watt incandescent equivalent. That translates to a savings of $96 in energy costs per bulb over its 8000-hour existence. The 6500K color temperature is stark and bright, suitable for any indoor or enclosed outdoor fixture that accepts a standard-sized E26 medium-bulb base such as this.

Customer Questions & Answers

Does 6500K mean 6500 lumins

Asked by: Kenneth
No. Lumens are a measure of brightness. Kalvin is a measure of temperature - in this case meaning color of the light produced. This bulb will produce extremely bright, "white" light. Some people find this type of light "harsh."

Does this bulb fully light right away?

Asked by: Queenie
Sometimes fluorescent bulbs take a little period of time to initially "break in". Then they usually pop on full strength.

Minimum start temperature

In the specifications section it says this is an indoor/outdoor bulb. What is the coldest temperature at which it will start? It gets cold outdoors here, sometimes to -10 degrees F. Will this bulb work here?
Asked by: Bill
Typically these ballast are now 0 degree,if they are it should be instant start.

need a smaller bulb

I need a smaller bulb with the same wattage. Can you suggest one for my needs?
Asked by: Queenie
THERE ARE MANY CFL SIZES AVAILABLE FROM 25 WATT (EQUIVALENT) ON UP. WHAT ARE YOU TRYING TO ILLUMINATE? IF IT IS A CLOSET OR SMALL STORAGE AREA, THE 25 WATT (EQUIVALENT) MAY BE ADEQUATE. I HAVE A 25 WATT LED ON IN MY GARAGE 24/7 TO ELIMINATE SWITCHING ON AND OFF THE NORMAL 2 TUBE FLUORESCENT FIXTURES JUST TO WALK AROUND, EMPTY THE TRASH, GET IN THE VEHICLES, ETC.

150W Equivalent Daylight (6500K) Spiral CFL Light Bulb is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 128.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Daylight bulbs These bulbs are junk. I ordered 8 bulbs from Sylvania and they all worked fine. I needed more so I ordered 5 because that was the minimum order for free shipping (store didn't carry them). The store dropped Sylvania and replaced the manufacture with Feit .One of them didn't work out of the box. The other lasted about 2 hours. The store didn't give refunds, so I was out 20 bucks for junk bulbs. Feit can not compare to Sylvania. Sylvania bulbs are going strong and on their second year. I have other ones (same wattage, 200 watts) that have been working in another garage since these bulbs came out, that's been several years.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from work great for indoor gardening I ordered 4 of these to start my tomatoes and peppers for the outdoor garden. These are very bright white with a touch of blue which is what young seedlings like. You could probably grow some plants to harvest with these if you added a few 2700k bulbs to the mix. I made a light fixture for them out of an old plastic garbage can lid and some lamp parts from the hardware store. the bulbs stay cool enough that I don't have to worry about melting. Plus, you can get the lights very close to the plants without burning them. This makes the plants short and strong instead of tall and spindly I read somewhere that these 42w bulbs give the best lumens per watt. I am very happy with this purchase.

It stop lighting on the 6th day. We took it down and reinstall but remain out. Then install 100 W bulb and it works. The 150 W is about $12 each in HomeDepot, and they accept return. Bulb is pretty bright emit 2600 lumen and whitish you can get 6500 kelvin color, but burn-out easy even outdoor. Maybe I'm not lucky.

I was able to return it to the store for a refund. The day after ordering 3 bulbs home depot dropped the price, I complained and was issued a refund of the higher price I paid. So far the bulbs are burning 12 hours a day, would I repurchase probably not.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does the job. The bulb is a bit bulky but does throw the needed lumens. The cost is excessive - it may be better to shop for LED compacts as their prices start dropping. They are more reliable and longer-lived.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work well I use these in our street lamps around the facility. They are very bright and very white. Exactly what I wanted. They work very well outside in Michigan winters as well
