I am looking for a high wattage CFL with a min-candelabra base. I have
found 40 and 60 watt equivalent ones, but they are sadly very dim. This
is for a small ceiling fan light that takes 2 such lamps. The lamps are
behind a amber/white tinted bowl. I figured that daylight CFLs might
give a little more light as the bowl would filter the light to look
more like incandescent ... but no, it looks real weird and is still dim.
I was going to try the so-called full-spectrum units, but I don't
think, without getting a larger wattage, it's going to matter. BTW,
I've Googled this and found 1, but it was a daylight lamp and cost $18 a
I should have read your post more carefully.
Base adapters wouldn't be a great option for wall sconces. :(
In a fixture where the bulb is more hidden the adapter wouldn't matter
but in a wall sconce the adapter would be visible.
here's the best I've found so far
Dimmable 14 Watt Spiral Compact Fluorescent Bulb / Candelabra Base
not cheap & not very pretty but ........
