Product Overview

The more you dim, the warmer the light with the Philips BR40 Flood Light, featuring a fully dimmable, warm glow light effect. This LED BR40 offers a new experience for dimmable LEDs by creating a soft, diffused light and smooth dimming from 2700K to 2200K. As the light is dimmed, the color temperature is reduced and creates a warm, relaxing ambiance.

Now you can enjoy the perfect alternative for those household applications where ambience is as important as lowering energy bills and reducing the hassle of frequently replacing light bulbs. This bulb is ENERGY STAR Certified and ideal for residential use in kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and dens, as well as commercial use in restaurants and hospitality applications. It is perfect for recessed cans or track light fixtures, offering soft white light for a pleasant and inviting feel.

Questions & Answers


i need E17light baub at 25watts

Asked by bill November 29, 2020

This is an E17 bulb, (standard Edison/intermediate base), that gives warm light at around 60-65 watts. So it does not fit your inquiry for a 25 watt bulb

What is height of the bulb? The height listed in the specs cannot be accurate and must reflect t...

Asked by mcp February 16, 2020

The overall bulb height is about 6 3/8 inches from the tip of the base to the top of the dome.

Flood light

Asked by iic July 31, 2018

They are around 6 3/4" long. They fit the standard cans perfectly.

What is the CRI of this bulb?

Asked by KerryG July 4, 2018

These bulbs were purchased for 2700k temperature rather than cri, used as general lighting and colors were true to what we expected. More interested in energy usage and warm glow.

Is anyone experiencing a random periodic flicker on these bulbs. I replaced incandescent, 4 bulbs...

Asked by Rich January 28, 2017

If the bulbs are on dimmer switches, they need LED compatible switches. Philips has them listed on their website.

Is the bulb lense plastic or glass?

Asked by Sh December 1, 2016

What is the difference Between soft white and soft white with warm glow bulbs? Can I use a dimmable bulb if I don't have a dimmer switch?

Asked by Killer June 5, 2016

They won't dimm if your switch is not dimmable. You mean difference between soft white and daylight? soft white is a warm yellow light, and daylight is a white an bright.

Good size for 6" cans, good amount of light for living room, and nice dimming features! I bought these lights and thought they might have been too big for the 6" cans but they fit perfect. Being LED, they don't get hot at all. We placed them in our living room above the TV to cut down on glare from the windows. The nicest feature of these bulbs is the change in lumens when it's at its lowest setting. It has a nice warm glow that's great for night time TV/movie watching!

For the price, this can't be beat. Replaced existing 65W incandecent and thought this was slightly brighter. Though the color temp was very comparable.

We are very happy with these bulbs. Excellent replication of the warmth of an incandescent bulb. We are using these to replace our incandescent BR-40's as they burn out. Home Depot quality severely lacking on our online order, however. The packaging on 2 of the 4 bulbs had been ripped open and just stuffed in the carton. Clearly, these 2 bulbs had been opened and returned by a previous customer. The bulbs worked when installed, but we won't know whether these bulbs will last their expected life. I will be very unhappy if they burn out in say 6 months. I appreciate HD's generous return policy, but when I place an online order, I expect to receive the product in its original packaging.

Looks great! But get the right dimmer.
This replaced both the bulb and the bulb cover in my ceiling fixture. Looks great and gives excellent light and dimming function. Do the research on the Philips website and be sure you get a compatible dimmer. My first choice switch was incompatible, but the Leviton SureSlide 6674 is compatible.

Replaced BR30s with these and Love it
I've replaced at least 80% of the lights in our home with LEDs. Although the kitchen is one of the most active areas, I took my time switching to LEDs because I was looking for the right dimmer switch. With that now out of the way, I was set to buy some BR30 LED bulbs when I stumbled across these. Our kitchen has four can lights. The builder placed incandescent BR30s in the cans and I've been used the same ever since. The BR30s sit far into the can fixture but barely provide sufficient lighting. I only purchased one of these at first because I was unsure how it would look due to the significant size difference. This BR40 is a perfect fit. The curved top of the bulb protrudes just slightly below the can. This gives the light a farther reach. It is also a little brighter than the 65 watt incandescent bulbs I've been using. They dim quite well but not to the level of incandescent bulbs of course. I used the Lutron app and Caseta dimmer to dim the lights down to 1%. The BR40 LED was significantly brighter than the BR30 incandescent, but I never dim my lights that low anyway. These larger bulbs may not work for everyone but they turned out to be an excellent choice for my needs. As always, LEDs will cost you more but they will save you on your monthly electric bill, put out far less heat, last a super long time, and might even provide greater light than the incandescent bulbs they replace.

Good bulb, decent price
Got these for a 10' ceiling living room. Good color, looks to me a bit warmer than 2700K but still fine. Was the only dimmable LED bulb on the shelf that fit our cans, so there was no real shopping. Light spreads nice and lights the whole room.
