Answer: 
I think that's going to depend more on your tastes because a 40 watt equivalent in an led is a lot lower.... so safetywise, I think you can put either in. if you want it to be more lit up, then do the 40s. If you want it to be a softer light that you would imagine for formal meals, then go with the 25s. Do you know what you have in it now? are you satisfied with the brightness?

Answer: 
I typically find it best to go with the a higher watt bulb and use a dimmer switch. When cleaning or doing a task, I like as much light as possible. When dining it's nice to set the illumination at a more relaxing setting.

Answer: 
The manufacturer usually advises the maximum wattage of the bulbs to use. Although that's based on incandescent bulbs, rule of thumb, I try to use the LED equivalent.

Answer: 
Hello,
The 25W LED candle bulb mentioned has a 40Watt equivalence. So they are similar to a 40W incandescent while saving a significant amount on your energy bill. Your choice may depend on how bright you would like your chandelier. Also keep in mind that with the white coating these types of bulbs will not appear as bright as a 'clear' looking bulb.

this site lists cardboard package size. clearly this bulb isn't over 8 inches tall. but how tall is it from bottom of metal base to tip? or, the height of just the bulb itself - either measurement will do as long as it's clear which one it is. thank you very much.

Answer: 
I'm sorry I don't know the exact measurement, but I don't think it's any taller than the usual flame shaped bulbs since it fit inside the enclosed torchiere I put it in. I did feel like the body was a little bigger girthwise, but nothing that interfered with my use. And remember if you get it home and it doesn't work, you can always return it.

I would like to replace the bulbs in my outdoor, motion-sensing, fixtures. Will these bulbs replace the often-replaced incadescent bulbs?

Answer: 
Yes, I think they should. I put mine into a torchiere that is operating with a sun cell sensor and it works fine.

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent bulb, if a bit pricey This LED candle-tip shaped bulb has the best light quality possible for dining room chandeliers. It's dimmable, which is essential for atmospheric dining, and the quality -- always high with Philips bulbs -- is top-notch. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by led for outside torchiere This looks nice and works just like an old-style bulb. I wish they were stocked in the store, though, rather than having to order and wait for it. I don't think any HD store in my metro area currently carries any LED's that are rated for outdoor use, which is why I ordered this one... as president of my townhouse association, I'd recommend these to owners if they didn't have to order and wait.... February 16, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fantastic Bargain for a Great Addition! I've been replacing the bulb in my driveway marker with increased frequency and I wanted to find something with a longer user life than the bulbs I'd been installing. This bulb was a little pricier than the ones I'd been buying but was SO worth it! It looks fanastic in the lamp-post and puts off a fantastic light cover for the front yard at night. I'm extremely happy to have found such a fantastic bulb that looks so great! Highly recommend! April 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect for Post Lamp/Light I'm picky about lighting and the one in our outdoor post lamp was really not great. This one was perfect! Great lumens, great looking, and great efficiency. Our post lamp fixture has clear glass and the clear glass light bulbs were just too hard on the eyes. I was so happy to finally find a high efficiency bulb with a softer look. And this bulb is just the right height. Too many bulbs were too tall for the fixture. Thanks Philips! and Thank you Home Depot! February 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly recommend these bulbs! We have a 4 bulbs ceiling fan/light fixture in the living room and had been using F15 clear flame style 60 watt bulbs in the light. When one recently burned out, I replaced it with one of these, and although they say 45 watt, it LOOKED just as bright to us as the other bulbs. I went back the next day and bought 3 more and now have only LED bulbs in this light. I will use the other 3 as spares for another similar light we have. It will need the spares because I bought a dozen of the incandescent flame bulbs last year and so many have burned out, these will be the last 3 spares. The new LED bulbs look great and are rated for 22.8 years. I don't know if they'll really last that long, but NONE of any other LED bulbs I've bought in the past 2 years have burned out yet. Costs? Well, if one LED bulb lasts 20 years, and my incandescent bulbs have been burning out at 2 or 3 per year, per socket, even the pricey LED bulbs will turn out to be far less expensive in the long run. Electricity usage will be drastically reduced for lighting now. In just this one light fixture, the change will reduce the electricity used from 240 watts (4 x 60 watts) down to 18 watts (4 x 4.5 watts). Dimmability: When I had one of the LED bulbs in the fixture with the other bulbs still incandescent, I tested the dimming and the LED bulb dimmed correctly, matching the brightness/dimness of the other bulbs nicely. Be sure to check your LED bulb purchases to make sure they specifically say Dimmable, if you will need that feature. Some have it and some don't. If they don't mention Dimmable, then they aren't. I discovered there was also a hidden safety issue caused by the old 60 watt incandescents in our fan/light fixtures. Even though the fixtures were rated 60 watts per socket, the wiring behind the socket has had its insulation baked into crumbly brittleness over the years, by the heat from those bulbs. Connections to the back of the socket get loose and sparky - not good! I have had to rewire those heat damaged sockets, but don't expect to need to do so anymore, as 4.5 watts from the LED bulbs will barely warm things. To compare energy usage of the new LED bulbs, 4.5 watts of electricity is what gets used by the average incandescent night light bulb. I am very impressed with LED bulb technology and will be recommending these bulbs to all my friends. Avoid the CFL bulbs as they still don't save as much electricity as LED and CFL's contain mercury and have to be disposed of as hazardous waste. LED bulbs, don't - but considering their longevity, you might never need to actually worry about disposing of one anyway. Nice and bright, Nice design, Eco-friendly (both for not having mercury and for saving electricity), long lasting. January 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dinning Room Table Light I have 5 of these bulbs in a 6 bulb dinning room fixture. Normally I do not by the 2700k bulbs (Low end of color spectrum) however where the is that close to your face in a low light fixture over the table this is as high as I would go or the white light may blind you. This is the only kind I see with the frosted bulb which is excellent for the exposed bulb appearance. The fixture I have has a dimmer slider style. The fixture still has one of the 6 bulbs as incandescent light bulb. I can only replace one at a time due to expense. The con I see is when one goes out will this style still be available as this is the only model I see like this. The oldest one is one year, no issues February 10, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bulbs! This whole line of LED bulbs from Philips is a winner. We have replaced almost all the bulbs in our house with LED at this point, and the bulbs from Philips work in the dimmers without humming. The Cree bulbs hummed for us, even when they were labeled as "dimmable". Importantly, Philips has made their new LED bulbs beautiful. This one looks like any other frosted decorative bulb. We also have clear decorative bulbs in chandeliers, and they look like crystal---more attractive than traditional incandescent bulbs. Overall, a great value if you plan to stay in your house long enough to enjoy the savings, given the up-front expense. August 26, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Taking Them Back I didn't have quite the experience of the other reviwers. Now, I love Philips products, but was disappointed in this one. When it read Soft White, that's what I was counting on. However, what I got was closer to a flourescent green. Since it was going into fixtures that are in the same room as incandescent bulbs, there's no way I could use them, which I hate because I really wanted them to work. September 20, 2014
