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 261.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It works like advertised. I was looking for a reliable photocell that I could plug a normal bulb into but couldn't find any. I read the reviews of several but none had any better than 3 stars and many less than that. I wanted a dusk to dawn light by my garage to replace the existing bulbs that work on a traditional manual on/off switch so when away, it looks like someone's home. I found these online, good reviews, priced reasonable and from a recognizable brand. Bought 2 to replace standard bulbs on both sides of the garage. So far, I'm happy with the bulbs. They work as advertised, on at dusk and off at dawn. They come on within 10 seconds of each other. Hopefully they last awhile.

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.
