Customer questions about this product
- I installed this bulb and it doesn't seem as bright as the one I was replacing. What gives?
- This is a commercial/ industrial bulb designed to withstand power surges. While it will operate on a household 120 volt electrical connection, it actually requires a 130 volt electrical connection to produce the full rated lumens. The light lumen output will go down about 24%, when used in a 120 volt circuit but the life of the bulb will last 280% longer than it would in a commercial/industrial setting, with a 130 volt circuit.
These 120 watt indoor flood light bulbs offer plenty of light for outdoor areas. These incandescent, long life indoor flood lights are commercial grade. They feature multi-filaments and medium brass bases that do not oxidize or freeze in the socket for easier removal. This design better withstands a voltage surge. The light bulb measures 6 1/2'' long, has a diameter of 5'
Frequently Purchased Together
The bulbs are well packaged in individual boxes. The only issue I found was the bulbs have a more "yellow" tint compared to other similar bulbs.

These are quality bulbs that arrived well packed and in perfect condition exactly as described on the site. They are have very consistent quality and uniform appearance. The problem, and reason for knocking off two stars, is that the rated lumens even after reducing for 120V service seem significantly overstated. The bulbs purport to put out 1380 lumens at 130V and the Q&A states that a 24% reduction can be expected when operated on normal 120V service. That would bring lumens down to an expect 1048.8. I replaced some 1+ year old 65W (120V) bulbs rated at 600 lumens and was expecting 1.5+ times the brightness. This was in a 10-person conference room with 6 can lights. I replaced 3 bulbs and could not tell any difference in brightness between old and new in the same room. Being generous, there might be a 10% increase, putting these bulbs somewhere in the 650 lumens range at 120V. I took a photo of the old 65W bulb next to these "120W" bulbs for comparison. The biggest visible difference is that the old bulbs were smaller (maybe BR32s instead of BR40s), so they don't stick out as much from the can, making the new bulbs more prominent. This also has the effect of casting the light wider from each bulb, but not increasing the overall brightness of the room. This is the only plus side to the dimness -- less glare. I'm not criticizing the size of the bulb at all -- it's exactly as described and what I was expecting. Another visible difference (as explained on the Q&A above) is that 130V bulbs will burn quite a bit more "yellow" or warm than a 120V equivalent. This is very noticeable in person, but hard to capture in a picture where the phone works hard to automatically adjust for white balance and "tune out" the yellow as much as it can without distorting other colors. Think of any traditional bulb on a dimmer dropped down about 1/3 from full. While no one buys incandescent bulbs for energy efficiency, it should also be noted that lumens / watt gets worse as voltage drops. That is, the light gets dimmer faster than the energy used drops. This advice is more applicable to dimming of lights versus buying smaller wattage -- dimmed incandescents use more energy to produce the same light than a non-dimmed lower wattage bulb. Bottom line is these are not recommended for any kind of commercial or business setting where neutral light or more than 650+/- lumens each is needed. It's really a shame that the only comparable replacement are currently expensive LEDs (18-20W BR40 or can light retrofits) -- those prices can't come down fast enough.

I super surprised to see this 120 watt indoor flood lamp light bulb offered here on webresturant. I ran out and had an outdoor above the kitchen sink and it was too hot and uncomfortable. Thanks for a great price as well.

I use these bulbs on a regular basis to provide adequate exterior lighting in the parking lot of our hair salon. They last an extremely long time and the delivery time is always prompt. Great Price!
