What does PL-S Stand For?

PL-S light bulbs are compact fluorescent plug in light bulbs made by Philips Lighting. These are the oldest types of plug in light bulbs and are often found used in portable lamps. The PL-S stands for "Philips Linear- Short" These only come in a 2 Pin Plug In bulb.

PL-S CFL bulbs have an average rated life of 10,000 hours. These plug ins are available in the following wattages: 5, 7, 9 and 13. All but the 5 watt come in 827, 835, 841 and 850 color ways. The 5 watt only comes in 827 and 841 color ways.

The bases on the 5, 7 and 9 watt bubls are all interchangable. The bases are all the same and if a 5 watt isn't bright enough for you, feel free to go up in wattages. The 13 watt however, has a different base than the others and if you your lamp/fixture uses this wattage, it is the only wattage you can use.
