Customer Questions & Answers

Where is the electronic ballast on these fixtures?

I'm increasingly thinking that the source of my problem is the ballast. But I don't have a clue where it might be located.

I am having trouble removing my light bulb, any hints?

Asked by: Lenny
Normally PL-C lamps are just pulled out of the socket. They need to be grabbed from the plastic base and then pulled hard. There may be a few sockets that are twist and lock

What is meant by, "Non-integrated" in the title of this item?

This CFL bulb is the only bulb that is disclosed as "non-integrated" in its title What exactly does this mean? All of the other bulbs, regardless of wattage or base, do not identify themselves as "non-integrated" What is the difference between a "non-integrated" bulb, and the rest?
Asked by: Lightbulb
Non integrated means that there is no ballast built in the lamp. These lamps will require a separate ballast to operate the lamp.

I had to purchase this one since there were no others that were unopened in the store. I was able to install another one. I suggest better quality control on returned items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, except for the lead and mercury! I use these in sconces. I had no trouble to install them, and I found that the lifetime of these bulbs was at least 4 years (used in a bathroom with 4 people in the house). I don't like that Home Depot in Montreal doesn't clearly provide a service to recycle these lead + mercury bulbs. I'm trying to find a LED alternative for this reason.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only stay on a short while - and then cutout ... I bought two of these to replace the bulbs in a kitchen fixture for my mom. She was so happy that it was fixed, However, she later told me that after the light is on for a couple of hours, the light goes out. I had also replaced the light switch on the wall that same day I replaced the bulbs so I know the switch is good. And since these bulbs contain all the electronics built into the bulb, I can only assume that these bulbs were bad right out of the box .... going to replace the entire fixture and move to an LED model ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bulb I was helped by staff to get the correct bulb and I had no trouble installing it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible-- just being honest This is a good contender for one of the worst light bulbs ever to try to install. I've slaved away a couple hours trying to install it before getting out a file and filing away the tabs (bumped plastic protrusions on either side of the middle block and spray on a PTFE lubricant to get it to slide into the light fixture. Oh, and by the way I saw the Philips "guarantee" that they will last 3 hours per day for min. of 2 years 7 days a week. Well I must just be having bad luck then because for the last 4.5 years I've been changing the 2 bulbs a min. of 1x per year-- I estimate they barely get 1.5 hours a day (being generous).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bulb Wanted a CFL with a little warmer glow for kitchen instead of cool white. This really makes a warm glow and the cabinets stand out.
