Philips Regular 85 Watt BR40 Light Bulbs Discontinued

As part of the 2006 energy bill passed by Congress, another one of the bulbs on the chopping block made by Philips is now officially discontinued and out of stock. The regular line 85 watt BR40 light bulbs are now discontinued and out of stock.

The good news is that the Duramax version of the 85 Watt BR40 is still available. The price is going to be a bit different but in light of the fact that there isn't anything that is a perfect replacement, it may be worth the price. The bulb will be the exactly the same. Depending on whether you are currently using a 120 volt bulb or a 130 volt bulb, the brightness may vary just slightly.
