A blunt tipped LED light bulb is a decorative light source that is identified by its rounded tip, which earns it various descriptions like bullet-shaped and torpedo-shaped. They are attractive in many applications and with different types to choose from you can be sure of finding the right light bulb for your needs.
Differences Between Blunt Tip LED Light Bulbs
Similar to A-shaped and flood light bulbs, LED blunt tipped light bulbs are differentiated by diameter and design. The diameter can be measured with the number code by referring to it as 1/8”. Using a B10 bulb as an example, the number 10 would represent 10 eighths of an inch, which would mean that the diameter of the bulb is 1.25”.
Different base types are also helpful to know as they affect the bulb’s applications. Bases use number codes as well and can be measured like bulb sizes. Most bases are measured by referring to the number codes as millimeters. So, for instance, the E12 candelabra screw base would be 12 millimeters which would equal 0.5 inches.
Where to Use Blunt Tip LED Light Bulbs
These bulbs are primarily used in chandeliers or night lights but can also be seen in sconces and ornamental applications. Because of their low light output, they are not typically used as the main source of light in a room. The lower wattage makes them energy efficient as well as decorative.
