What is the difference between a 120 Volt Light Bulb and a 130 Volt Light Bulb?
The volts of a light bulb indicate how many volts of electricity your light bulb operates at optimum. So for instance, if you are using a 120 volt light bulb in a table lamp and you get a surge of electricity in your house and the voltage raises above a 120, that light bulb will more than likely blow out. 130 Volt bulbs are the newer of the two types to come on the market. It's been our experience that you get a longer life out of a 130 Volt light bulb and when possible, we recommend this type.Holly Eddins
