G16.5 globe light bulbs with 2 inch diameter for decorative lighting in clear or white versions.

Sometimes people need very small globe light bulbs and that's where this bulb comes into play.  It and typically has a candelabra base or what is sometimes known as an E12 base.  This is used in many decorative applications and smaller types of fixtures that have been exposed to light bulb.  The bulb itself is only 2 inches across in diameter and comes in clear or white and on occasion a color of some sort.  This is probably one of the most popular lamps used in small mirrors or sign applications and comes in a variety of wattage is to suit almost any type of light fixture.  This particular lamp is a version of a decorative globe and is popular in homes and buildings where the scale is smaller with most of the fixtures in use.  For most people when they have a decorative lighting situation in their residence, really like the G16.5 globes as an option because they give the globe decorative look while staying within a small scale.  Of course, there are several sizes of decorative globes which can work in almost any exposed lighting situation you may have.  Some of the sizes that are available are everything from all 1 inch globe all the way up to a 5 inch globe, the G16.5 as stated before is 2 inches in diameter.

There are times when people just need something that's a bit smaller, the G16.5 many times fits that criteria.  Common applications for these bulbs include bathroom lighting or other kinds of exposed fixtures where the bulb is a part of the decorative element.  You'll find that there are so many choices of G16.5 globe light bulbs, that can be a little confusing, but there are just a few things to keep in mind when trying to identify the bulb you have.  When these bulbs are labeled or coded, it refers to the number of eighths of an inch. For example, if you had a G16.5 globe light, the 16.5 would be divided by eight which would leave you 2 and that is the number of inches of the bulb diameter.  So what you have is a 2 inch globe.  Once you determine the size of the globe itself, it's very easy to determine the wattage as it's usually stamped right on the bulb itself or on the base.  The wattage is usually designated before that with something like 15G16.5, 25G16.5, 40G16.5 or 60G16.5 with a clear or frosted designation.  The wattage is the first number in the code number which would be 15, 25, 40 and 60 watts.

Remember that there are several wattages of G16.5 globe light bulbs, we describe some of the most common used in home and commercial lighting here.  There are two different brands that we stock and we feel have the best quality and that would be Westinghouse and Sylvania.  We have a large inventory of incandescent bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  If you need help identifying a small globe bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
