A flame shaped LED light bulb is a decorative light source that is identified by its etched finish that gives the appearance of a flickering candle flame. 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.
Types of Flame Shaped LED Light Bulbs
Similar to A-shaped and flood light bulbs, LED flame shaped 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 an F11 bulb as an example, the number 11 would represent 11 eighths of an inch, which would mean that the diameter of the bulb is 1.4”.
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 Flame Shaped LED Light Bulbs
These bulbs are primarily used in chandeliers or ceiling fans but can also be seen in lamps and other ornamental applications. These bulbs tend to have a higher light output than other decorative bulbs which makes them better for being the main light source in a room. The lower wattage also makes them energy efficient as well as decorative.
