20w T2 Helix (ES)
This lamp uses T2 technology to be one of the smallest, fastest quickest bulbs on the market.
The T2 technology is essentially a thinner glass tube which can be twisted into a tighter turns, resulting in the smallest, brightest, compact fluorescent lamps possible.
It's small size compared with other low energy bulbs of a similar brightness makes this bulb ideal for any general lighting purpose where you need plenty of light.
At just under 100mm tall this bulb is smaller than most 'normal' bulbs and as it produces 1000 lumens it's almost as bright as a 'high energy' 100w bulb. When we visually compared a regular 100w bulb to this 20w lamp, the low energy bulb appeared to be brighter.
Comparing light bulbs
When you're comparing light bulbs to decide which one to buy, remember that light output is measured in lumens. Some bulbs produce more lumens for the same amount of electricity (measured in watts), which means that not all bulbs of the same wattage are the same brightness.This bulb produces 1000 lumens from 20w of power, giving an 'A' energy rating of 50 lumens per watt.
T2 lamp technology brings many advantages. Gone are the days when low energy bulbs took an age to reach full brightness. This lamp will start instantly at about 80% of it's full brightness, and reach 100% in just a few seconds.Gone too are the days when low energy bulbs were too big for your light shades, and horrid to look at.
We really can't explain in words how much of technological leap forward T2 bulbs are. Smaller, Faster cheaper to run and brighter than ever before - what's not to like? Buy yours today.
