Can this bulb be inserted uo side down?

Asked by: Anonymous
Yes, I had mine installed in an outside light fixture on the wall. The base pointed up. It only lasted 3 months (1 year warranty) and wasn't reliable with ON/OFF cycles. I live in Michigan and we are overcast most of the time in winter. The light would stay on too long after dawn.

60W Equivalent Soft White Spiral Dusk Till Dawn CFL Light Bulb (2-Pack) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 265.

I bought 2 of these for a double bulb outlet for the outside front door entrance. The outlet is an overhead in the covered space just outside the front door. Since it is a covered space I wasn't sure how well the light sensing would work, but they are excellent! Now, I can just leave the light switch permanently on inside the front door and they come on when it gets dark, and turn off when it lightens up in the AM. I have noticed that the one nearest the door comes on first, I guess because that area gets a little darker first, but the other one comes on not too long after. Also, the outlet is enclosed in a clear glass cover, with some metal decorative strips in part of it, but that has caused no problem at all in the sensing.

I have been using these light bulbs for about a month now and so far they are working perfectly. I use them in outdoor light fixtures hanging off my garage since I was sick of flipping the switch on and off everyday. I have yet to catch these bulbs on during daylight or off during darkness. I read some of the other reviews that said the photocell stopped working as well after awhile, so I will keep my eye on this. So far, they are working great and exactly what I needed.

Sorry but i'm not that easily impressed. Back in 1879 I would be going on and on about it but not on WiFi!!! Note to Baytown Home Depot. You could carry it in the store where it can be found so I wouldn't' have to order it online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love them. Home Depot Discontinuing Selling Them Bought the last ones (4) in the local store. Love them. No worries about the house being dark when out of town on personal or business trips. Nothing like coming home to a porch lit up for your arrival.
