High power bulbs in practical sockets
Posted 02 March 2009 - 06:22 PM
I was wondering if someone could explain to me how to go about using higher power bulbs in a practical socket. Can you just pop one into a standard household lamp if you are using it for a short amount of time, like turning it off between takes?
Or is it something where you have to modify a practical lamp to make it work?
Also, who would make bulbs to use for this, are they available for ordering online?
Any information you would have would be greatly appreciated.

Anyways, when using CFLs, or swirlies, as I call them, don't use bulbs that surpass the wattage rating in the socket. a 65watt flouro bulb will put out equavalent heat to a 65watt tungsten, with many more times the lumans output
