12 volt light bulbs for use in landscape lighting or string low voltage lights plus many outdoor fixtures.

Some people think that regular bulbs come in 120 volt only, but that's not the case as there are 12 volt light bulbs for special lighting applications. These are the standard size bulbs which you might be familiar with, the ones you've probably bought for years in hardware stores.  You might also know them as household light bulbs.  The "A" shape was one of the first designs and continues to still be the one most people use.  They fit in almost any light fixture, but one of the most common places that it's used are in landscape and outdoor lighting.  It has a standard medium base and screws into sockets that are made for all kinds of lighting.  The reason they have an outdoor application is that many low voltage light systems for landscape light fixtures utilize 12 volt light bulbs.  Sometimes they're used in lantern fixtures or certain kinds of area lighting outside.  If you tried using a 120 volt bulb in a 12 volt light bulb socket, it would burn very dim, so you'll need the low voltage version to get the correct amount of light.

Incandescent lamps are the type that were developed earliest of any of the other kinds and these developed into what we know as the 12 volt light bulbs.  There are several wattages of these that are available right now which would be the 25, 50, 75 or 100 watt versions.  They have a frosted finish and are the same size as regular light bulbs except for the larger wattage which comes in an A23 shape.  It's a bit larger in the bulb portion and longer on the neck.  If you don't know whether you have a high voltage or low voltage system outside, then you need to have an electrician check it out for you or check the previous bulb you used and look for 12 volt anywhere on the bulb itself.  Although this voltage isn't a common use of an A shape light bulb, they do pop up once in a while for certain kinds of 12 volt lighting situations.  We always keep these in stock and we sell them at a very reasonable price.

If you've decided on eLightBulbs.com, you've made an excellent choice for good lighting and you're in good company. From landscape lighting in finer homes to string lighting, you will most likely find these 12 volt light bulbs lighting your way. Remember that there are many types of bulbs, we describe just some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  Whatever type you choose, you will be getting the highest quality and the most light you can for your money.  If you need help identifying a bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
