What is B10 Bulb
A B10 bulb is a type of bulb commonly used in decorative lighting fixtures such as chandeliers, candelabras, and wall sconces. It is characterized by its unique tapered shape, gradually narrowing from the base to a blunt tip. This design element adds an elegant and aesthetic touch to the overall appearance of the fixture, creating a warm and inviting ambiance in the room.
When considering the purchase of a B10 bulb, there are two important measurements to take into account. Firstly, the diameter of the widest part of the glass is typically standardized at 1 1/4 inches. Secondly, the diameter of the base can vary, with two common options being 12 mm (E12) or 26 mm (E26). It is essential to determine the correct base size for compatibility with the specific light fixture.
In the United States, most light fixtures require the E26 base, also known as the Edison base. However, fixtures from outside the United States may utilize the E12 base instead. To ensure the correct replacement bulb is selected, it is recommended to bring the old bulb when purchasing a replacement, allowing for a direct comparison of the base size.
