Sometimes known as “candelabra bulbs,” Type B bulbs are bullet or flame-shaped, smaller in size and carry less wattage than other bulbs. Some Type B bulbs buldge at the base and get thinner as they reach the tip, while others retain the same narrow shape from bottom to top.
Shopping Guide. An incandescent 60-watt bulb, for example, gives off 800 lumens of light. And LED bulbs, which are more energy efficient than their incandescent counterparts, can deliver the same amount of light using as little as 10 watts.
B -shaped bulbs are also known as Candelabra bulbs. E26 is the size of most light bulbs used in the U.S. It’s referred to as having a “medium” or “standard” base. E12 is the smaller “candelabra” base. It’s used for nightlight bulbs, and sometimes for decorative light bulbs used in chandeliers and over bathroom mirrors.
Thanks for your electrical question Ryan. The Type A Bulb is the most standard size, that being a larger base than a Type B. That being the case, there are socket adapters to allow a Type B Lamp to be used in a Type A Socket, but not for a Type A bulb to be used in a Type B Socket.
It sports a soft white finish that amplifies the brightness of the light. The 40W 120-Volt Incandescent Light Bulb has wattage of 40. It has a standard shape with a bent tip, and easily fits into lighting fixtures with a candelabra base.
Candelabra Edison screw, 12mm base diameter. It will normally just say B10 which is actually just specification of the shape and glass diameter (not the base). B10 with a E12 base. The B10 refers to the glass diameter of a small US candle shape light bulb.
Putting a 60W bulb in a 40W socket, probably won’t cause a problem, but you won’t get better brightness.
Yes, you can use it! A 60-watt equivalent LED bulb uses around 8 watts on average. That’s 5X less than a 40-watt incandescent.

Type B LED tubes are fluorescent ballast bypass LED linear lamps. Type B lamps are also known as line voltage lamps. These tubes have an internal driver built into the lamp and are intended to be directly wired to the power source bypassing the ballast.
The industry uses many terms for the same size: C7 / E12 / Candelabra Base Bulbs typically used for chandelier-type fixtures and decorative lighting. Medium / E26 Bulbs (E27 in Europe) the same size as a standard household bulb.
Screw- base bulbs, often called Edison bulbs, are named after their inventor—Thomas Edison. In North America and Europe, these light bulb base types are the most common and widely used.
GENERAL PURPOSE WHITE LIGHT BULBS: These light bulbs are the perfect general purpose, white light bulbs that fit lamps, fixtures and more. 150-WATT LIGHT BULBS: These light bulbs use 150-Watts (2680 lumens). LIGHT BULBS LASTING 0.7 YEARS: The light bulbs are rated to last 0.7 years based on 3 hours of daily use.
Type B light bulb: This is a much slimmer version of the Type A mount. The bulb itself is generally narrow and bullet-shaped or flame-shaped. This is most often used for decorative purposes, such as in candelabra-style lighting fixtures. Type S light bulb: Not all types refer just to the mount.
TYPE A LED (Ballast Driven) Sometimes referred to as plug and play, the Type A LED lamp directly replaces traditional lamp types such as Compact Fluorescent (CFL) and Linear fluorescent. No rewiring is required, no electrician is required. You can simply replace your existing lamps with new Type A LED lamps.
