Customer Questions & Answers

2 small white clips/clamps came with philips spiral 3-way lightbulb - how do you use them?

Asked by: Anonymous
The clips are used to raise a harp (shade support) to provide enough room to accommodate the larger size of Phillips' dual tube bulb. The clips fit between the harp base that's attached below the lamp socket and the ends of the harp that engage the base. The clips aren't required for floor lamps or table lamps that don't have a traditional shade. I used a taller harp on my table lamp, so I can't speak to how well the Phillips clips work.

Does this bulb go on as soon as the switch is turn/flipped, or is there a short delay?

Asked by: Lars
Yes, under "normal" temperature use; no warm-up time is evident.

How do you switch from wattage/luminance.

Asked by: Hypersonic
This bulb needs to be used on conjunction with a lamp or light that is three-way light enabled.

Customer Reviews

11-23-34-Watt (50-100-150W) Soft White (2700K) 3 Way CFL Light Bulb is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulky but it works Exactly as the summary says, the bulb barely fits my lamp, but it works beautifully and the color is just that lovely warm glow of a standard incandescent bulb.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Huge 3-way CFL Bulb Instant on and good color temperature ("Soft White"), but this thing is huge! Fortunately, it does come with a pair of harp extenders so I was able to get it to fit into the intended lamp, but there are many lamps in which it would not fit. I would suggest that you find a smaller bulb.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bulb is too big Light bulb fits standard outlet but the bulb is too large/long to fit lamp stand. Even though the bulb comes with "halo" extenders, they are plastic and the frame popped off every time you turn the lamp on or off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits lamps with shade supports at the socket This is the first CFL that fits my swivel floor lamp. See low-light picture. It is a tight fit - but it works. Also, this is the first spiral CFL I've seen that has two tubes - similar to the 3-way incandescent it replaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Light; A Little Pricey This Phillips CFL with its 50-100-150W equivalent rating provides more light than any of the lower output 3-way LED bulbs that are currently available. Most customers will need the harp (shade support) extensions that Phillips includes with the bulb to raise the harp enough to accommodate the dual tube construction of the bulb. For lamps with a heavy shade, customers may need to purchase a taller harp.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after three weeks Worked well for a while. But after just three weeks, it failed with a loud pop when turning it off. Just e-mailed Phillips for replacement. No idea if this is common or not, but not a great first impression. Also understand that the bulb is fairly large and may not fit some table lamps well.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor brightness Compared to a 3-way incandescent bulb the cfl type is not as bright even though it's the same wattages as the incandescent.
