What's important when choosing a suitable light bulb?
The type of light bulb is mostly end user choice however LED and CFL offer energy savings, for example: a 5W LED Bulb is equal to approximately a 40/45W Incandescent Bulb. LED is particularly useful where a light fitting requires a very low maximum wattage bulb. We recommend LED Light Bulbs for all applications and any light fixture with a removable light bulb is suitable for an LED Type Light Bulb.
Have a look at the most popular light bulb shapes, some shapes are purely for cosmetic purpose whilst others are shaped to fit within a lampshade:

Below we have outlined the EU Base Caps and the recommended solution for use in the US:
When purchasing a light bulb please ensure you purchase for the American Voltage (110V-120V).
