How Do I Know What Type of Bulb I Need?
This is the most critical piece of information when selecting new bulbs – if you choose the wrong fitting or cap, your light bulb simply won’t fit. Despite that, choosing a light bulb with the wrong fitting or cap type is one of the most common and frustrating mistakes made when purchasing light bulbs.
Caps and bases are labelled using both letters and numbers. The letter indicates the type of base, while the number indicates the diameter of the base in millimetres (mm). There may also be a third letter to indicate whether there are one, two, or three pins.
Here are some of the most common cap and base types:
- Bayonet: The most common type of base in the UK
- Screw: Also known as “Edison” bases, which is why they are labelled using the letter “E”.
- Pins of Pegs: These bases feature two narrow pins or pegs. The distance between the pins or pegs is measured in millimetres and indicated in the base type code.
