Customer Questions & Answers

What is the GE brand ballast used on this light bulb?

Asked by: LVBC
Hello, A recommended ballast for this Philips CFLni would be from the many Philips Advance list of ballasts.

Is there any way to use a bulb like this--same base and dimensions, but get more light?

Bathroom light. It's dark and doesn't emit enough light. I am stuck with this base (it's in a can light) unless I want to do some modifications. Thanks.
Asked by: Lans
Hello, and thank you for your question. Unfortunately, this base is only available in the 13-watt option.

what socket can I order to fit this bulb

Asked by: MedRxMan
Hello MedRxMan, These bulbs can be used with any fixture that has a GX23-2 base that matches the bulb, such as compatible downlights and wall washers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits and Works This bulb fits the bathroom can-lights in our early 2000s home. Had to pull out the old bulb and take it with us to Home Depot to match the base configuration because the CFL part of the bulb looks like several other models.. Be aware of 2-pin versus 4-pin. This one is 2-pin and fits our fixture perfectly.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stutter start-up. Very warm color (yellow), which is what I prefer over the cool white sterile blue one that it replaced. Only issue is the blinkie-blinkie before turning on. Just like the olden day fluorescents. I'll keep my eye open for a not-so-warm bulb. Maybe 3000K instead of this 2700K one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bathroom fixture light Was the right one to fit the fixture. This particular fixture did not come with a light bulb. Purchased separately.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not great They aren't anything special. In fact, they start petering out really fast. The one in our bathroom flickers and takes forever to turn on. Not only that, they don't put out tons of light. Don't know if it's possible but I'd like to find a replacement (same base and bulb dimensions) that puts out more light.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Significant flickering on start In my bathroom fan/light fixtures, these flicker on and off for several seconds while starting; tried two different units. I have not had this problem with other brands.
