Standard Products unveils new generation T2 CFL lamps
By Anthony Capkun
Standard introduced a complete line of “new generation” T2 spiral CFLs. Their miniature size allows them to fit in just about any fixture and, says the company, they sport an improved structure over the previous generation, making them more solid and durable. These lamps boast better performance, says Standard, including longer lamp life (average 12,000 hours) and improved lumens. This generation is made with amalgam allowing for higher lumen maintenance and even colour temperature. The T2 CFLs are available in 9W, 13W, 18W and 23W versions in a variety of colour temperatures (ranging from 2700K to 5000K). Compared to their incandescent equivalents, the company says these T2 lamps last 12 times longer and use 80% less energy.
