A: This bulb is made in Poland
A: This is not a low voltage bulb, it requires use with 120v a/c circuit
A: The Incandescent lamps are a filamented light source and are not under high pressure. If you experienced this issue with a Philips incandescent bulb, please contact us, we would like to gather some additional information as we take these issues very seriously.
A: Hi Kate, having been an electrical engineer and master electrician for more than 50 years, only time I have seen an incandescent bulb explode was when a water leak hit the bulb when it was on and hot. Lamps are not under pressure, you should be good to go in your lamp. This type of thing is few and far between as working in 1000's of home and building is very seldom something like this happens
A: I'm the Kate that posed this question. To Phillips: It wasn't one of these bulbs I had the problem with. It was a different brand, that said in light small print on the package the bulb was "under pressure" and not to put in cans. I didn't see the small light print, and I did put them in can lights, and one of them exploded. I have removed them. This is why I wanted certainty that these bulbs were NOT under pressure, and were NOT incandescent in name only. I now plan to purchase these bulbs. Thank you!!!!
A: Yes! they are good for use in fully enclosed fixtures
A: Hi Kat should not be a problem is only a 25 watt bulb and most fixtures like yours are rated for 60 watt bulbs
