There has been a bulb used in microwave ovens and many people have some problem finding it.  Well, your search is over as we have this specific bulb  in stock at all times.  It's made to work in GE and other brands of microwaves.  Because of it's special size, there's really nothing else that will work in it's place.  This is a very common light bulb when it comes to applications were a lot of light is desired in a very small space.  It is sometimes known as a high-intensity bulb. It's a little unusual in that it has an intermediate base which is also known as in E17 base.  This fits into certain types of light fixtures which are usually associated with things like furniture or possibly china cabinets or applications that are similar to that.  It's been a popular choice of these kinds of manufacturers for many decades and continues to be used in those type of applications where this bright, intense light needs to be used.  Sometimes it's the only thing that can properly highlight what you need to show or display.  The internal parts have an unusual filament structure as well, which creates a lot of light in such a small space.  The reason people often choose the 40T8 microwave light bulbs are because of it's very small size and short overall length as well.  The wattage is 40 watt and sometimes called the 40T8/N where the "N" stands for intermediate base.  Although the intermediate is the most popular size of base, there is also a candelabra base available as well for those particular applications that are a little more unusual.   

Along with these ovens, they are used in some furniture applications.  In many types of lighting, the dimming capability is what makes it a wonderful choice for things that you may be highlighting adding an extra level of expression.  The places where the 40T8 microwave oven bulbs can be used are endless and sometimes even includes unusual lamps.  Almost anywhere that a small lamp is required with an intermediate base, the 40T8/N light is a great choice. They're really not that expensive and so you can stack up if you have areas were use these a lot.  Unlike some suppliers we have these in the 130 volt version.  The 130 volt microwave light bulbs will give you longer life than the other because it protects against power surges.  That's typical of anything that has a 130 volt rating that you use in a 120 volt circuit.

Remember that there is really only one 40T8 bulb that has been specified in GE brands and others.  Whatever type you have, you will be getting a longer life incandescent than what you're used to, getting the most light you can for your money.  We have a large inventory of high intensity light bulbs for nearly every type of light fixture in the field.  This means that you'll never have to be without the right light bulb, especially these types of more uncommon ones.  If you need help identifying an incandescent bulb, our customer service representatives can help you determine what you have.
