Technically speaking a bulb and a lamp are the same thing. You can use a 60 watt bulb in a fixture calling for a 40 watt bulb but I wouldn't. The lighting fixture may get to hot, melt and start a fire.
RE: 250 WATT BULB IN 150 WATT LAMPMIGHT IT BE SAFE USING INTERMITTENTLY AND WITH A COOLING FAN?I'M USING THE LIGHT WITH A GLASS TOP DRAFT TABLE.
6 watt bulb for mini lamp
You can, if you want to burn up your lamp. The socket rating is what is being stated, not the light bulb.
Yes, you CAN. The real question is whether or not you should. There is always a fire hazard, especially if the lamp is near drapes, or has a large shade or whatnot on it. If it was me I'd only use a 60 watt bulb in a 60 watt lamp.
No, the lamp has to match the ballast.
Check the label on the inside of the lamp shade. There it will tell you the maximum size wattage allowed for that specific fixture. If it isn't a lamp fixture but a porcelain lamp holder then yes you can.
If the socket threads of the lamp are the same then yes the bulbs can be interchanged. The 5 watt bulb will glow brighter than the 4 watt bulb. If by a 4 watt light you mean a 4 watt fixture, then it is not recommended to place a larger wattage lamp in a fixture that is rated by the manufacturer at a specific operating wattage
A 400 watt lamp on 120 volt circuit can use a #14 AWG conductor.
A typical desk lamp woud use a 60-watts incandesent bulb or a 12 watt CFL bulb, which uses 80% less power.
If I am correct you are referring to the note on lamps that says use max 60 watt bulb. Unless you have a special lamp such as a heat lamp. You shouldn't use a higher wattage bulb than recommended as the lamp shade could melt or become to hot and possibly catch fire. Think what could happen if the lamp shade touched the bulb, incandescent bulbs emit alot of heat. Also the wiring in the lamp may only be able to supply enough voltage to power a 60 watt or below bulb. I personally recommend you just use a cfl (you know the small spiral type) instead.
Yes, the reason for watt rating lamp fixtures is to prevent oversizing the lamp with a higher wattage bulb than the manufacturer recommends. Lower wattage bulbs are fine.
It is never recommended to over lamp a fixture when the manufacturer states a maximum specific size bulb only be installed.
Obviously not. It would blow the bulb by 600W! <<>> Yes you can use a 60 watt light bulb in a lampholder that is rated a 660 watts. The rating given to these lamp holders is the maximum amount of wattage that can be applied to them safely.
A 100 watt bulb uses 100 watt-hours in one hour. In standard energy units, that is 0.1 kilowatt-hours.
If the exit fixture uses a LED lamp it will have a 1 to 3 watt rating. If it is a incandescent bulb, each lamp will draw about 25 watts each.
You can, as it will physically fit. However, it is ill advised as the 60 watt bulb puts out more heat and is therefore a fire hazard.
It depends on the bulb. A 25 watt bulb uses 25 watts, a 40 watt uses 40 watts, a 60 watt bulb uses 60 watts, a 75 watt bulb uses 75 watts, a 100 watt bulb uses 100 watts, all the way up to a 500 watt bulb. Incandescent bulbs are about to cease to exist, so this answer is only good through the fall.
a 25 watt refrigerator bulb
No, the HPS bulb needs a ballast to operate. The ballast raises the voltage so that the bulb can strike an arc to start.
No, you can not use a 70 watt hps bulb in a 100 watt ballast fixture.
No. You must stick with proper lamp style and wattage for that fixture
Yes you can use a 13 watt CFL in place of a 60 watt incandescent bulb.
A 75 bulb will use more electricity.
1 W= 1A*1V so a watt is a watt is a watt.
Smaller watt bulb will prevail- The bulb may last longer but may not be as bright as a higher number wattage bulb.
