Capsylite light bulbs made by the leader in halogen lighting technology, Sylvania.

It used to be that there were only a few brands of halogen bulbs on the market and now the market is flooded with many manufacturers.  Which one will be the longest lasting or have good illumination?  It's hard to tell, that's why we suggest Capsylite bulbs from Sylvania.  They were the first to come out with the technology and are the leading maker of halogen today.  They put a halogen capsule light in a bulb or reflector to give a great amount of light output while delivering good efficiency. The Capsylite lamps are unique in their construction and has some of the highest quality standards of any competitor. Capsylite is Sylvania's brand name for it's halogen line of light bulbs. Although other manufacturers make a halogen product, we do believe that the Sylvania product is better for its beam pattern.  Halogen bulbs are incandescent bulbs, just like the regular ones we have been using in lamps for decades. Halogen bulbs, however, are filled with a special gas that rebuilds the filament and provides longer average life than normal incandescent bulbs. They come in different shapes and sizes for various different uses. The proliferation of all these types can be somewhat confusing, but it really isn't.  The Capsylite has many sizes but the most common are PAR lamps, bipin, MR16 and MR11 low voltage lighting. PAR stands for parabolic aluminized reflector and also comes in various widths for recessed or track lighting.

The halogen flood lamps are easy to identify. You can tell what kind of PAR lamp you have by measuring the distance across the widest point of the bulb. The number after 'PAR' represents the number of eighths of an inch the bulb diameter is. Therefore, PAR16 lamps are 2 inches across. Of course, there are a wide range of sizes including PAR20, PAR36, PAR38 and so on. So no matter what type of lighting you have, there's probably a halogen lamp that will give you better light and performance. They have standard bases and are able to be used indoors or outdoors. This means they can be directly exposed to rain or snow and still function normally and they do not need to be covered by a light fixture.  This makes the Capsylite light bulbs one of the most used and great for almost any lighting application.  You'll also find these lamps in a standard light bulb shape but with heavy glass.  The heavy glass in these bulbs is to prevent any dispersion of glass if the halogen bulb inside violently extinguishes.  It's the nature of this type of light to have some blow out of the capsule which is common to all manufacturers. 


There are a couple of reasons why people use these lamps so much.  One of those reasons is the bright, white light which makes for great highlighting of products or pictures adding a special touch.  Halogen lighting makes for a more dramatic presentation over regular bulbs.  They also actually save energy as they use less watts to create the same amount of light as higher wattage incandescent lamps.  The savings can be substantial and cause a quick payback.  So you can get a better quality of light while savings energy, which sounds like a win-win for any lighting situation.  With the advent of full spectrum versions, this makes them even better for applications like retail track lighting or places where a true color light is desired.

From your office, local retailer to homes, you will most likely find Capsylite light bulbs used in track lighting or table lamps for energy efficiency. The excellent white color make them a perfect choice for almost any space or recessed lighting. Many people also use these halogen bulbs for retail store lighting, homes, jewelry, art work, sculptures, etc. and when shown under this light will appear more brilliant. In the case of retail lighting, the way you light something could determine how much attention it gets, so it helps to use good lighting. Remember that there are many types of halogen light bulbs, we describe just some of the common characteristics when used in home and commercial lighting. Whatever type have now, you will be getting a better quality of light while saving energy too. If you need help identifying a halogen bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
