IllumiSci® is an American company that resides in the USA, maintains high quality manufacturing standards and offers super cool lighting products! Being an LED product company, we saw the need for better quality products and set-out to offer them at a reasonable price. We put thoughtful care into design and control of manufacturing, unlike most others looking to capitalize purely on volume and price. That’s what makes us different! Our products have cool styling, save energy and help the environment.
This bulb has fun Retro-Vintage Candelabra (Candle) style. Note that it is not an effects type bulb, and does not flicker like a flame. It resembles the old-style bulbs with its tapered design. It’s a truly cool and fun way to give an environment a retro or vintage feel. Incandescent bulbs that have a tungsten filament have been mostly replaced by LED bulbs being that the power consumption of an LED bulb is a just a fraction of what an incandescent bulb would consume.
This bulb offers a low 5.5 watts of consumption with 500 lumens of light output, which is similar to the light output of a 40 Watt old-school incandescent bulb. It offer 90 CRI (Color Rendering Index) light output quality which means that it is a higher quality and much more warm, soft and pleasant than a common 80 CRI bulb that can look thin. This is because simpler LED’s have a limited light spectrum, and it requires care to make the spectrum more full. Plus, we use a unique high quality glass that enhances the retro look.
For dimming we recommend modern Lutron dimmers. Plus, older dimmers use very different methods, so results may vary greatly when using older or other types. If you are unsure about your dimmer(s), we recommend that you purchase one to evaluate how your dimmer will work with a bulb before purchasing many.
We hope you enjoy many years of use of your IllumiSci® bulbs since we have put so much design and care into them!
