Single Tube 2 Pin

Select Your Base:


If you've shopped for CFL tube lights recently, you've probably encountered several different types of bases on your bulbs. Among the types of bases used in CFL tube lights are screw-in bases, GU24, 4-pin bases and 2-pin bases. Both 4-pin bases and 2-pin bases are two types of plug-in bulbs with an external ballast that gives them flexible applicability great for a wide range of locations and fixtures. 2-pin light bulbs operate using a magnetic ballast and have been the leading plug-in CFL tube lighting option for years. (They've only recently begun to be replaced by newer, electronic ballasted 4-pins.) If you are looking for a high-quality single tube 2-pin CFL bulb for your home or business, our lighting suppliers at BulbAmerica have you covered.

Choosing a Single Tube 2-Pin Bulb for Your Property

Many light fixtures today require 2-pin bulbs for lighting. When choosing a single tube 2-pin for your light fixture, it's important to pay attention to the type of base needed. All of our available single tube 2-pin bulbs either have a G23 or GX23 base.The G23 base is the most commonly used base for 2-pin lighting. The primary critical difference between these models is the placement of the notches on the base. This can affect the fit, even though there are 2 pins. Use these helpful diagrams to see how they differ. Red arrows point at the notches and key differences to help you see the variety.  Another important factor to pay attention to is the wattage. We have single tube 2-pin bulbs available in a number of wattages, including 5w, 7w, 9w and more. For optimal brightness and performance, it is best to choose a higher wattage bulb, provided your fixture can handle the wattage. If you are looking for a certain color of light, it's also important to pay attention to the color temperature. Bulbs with a color temperature of 2700K - 3000K produce a warm color with more yellow, whereas bulbs with a color temperature of 5000K and higher produce more of a cool white color. Keeping these factors in mind will help you to choose the correct single tube 2-pin bulb for your fixture.
