These are the 60 watt GE Reveal incandescent light bulbs.

The addition of the rare earth element neodymium (Nd) to the glass bulb acts as a sort of "notch reject" filter; filtering out the yellow wavelengths that are normally predominate in incandescent light bulbs, giving the Reveal bulb a significantly bluer color that makes the light appear whiter.

They come equipped with medium screw bases (size E26 or E27) aka. "Edison bases".

 Size of product w/hand to show scale SIZE

To use these bulbs, just replace any incandescent light bulb with an E26 or E27 medium screw base with one of these bulbs.

This product is designed to be operated from "house current" (110 volts to 130 volts AC 50Hz or 60Hz), not batteries of any type, so I do not have to tell you which part to remove, huck down the basement stairs into the room crawling with hundreds or even thousands of hungry, hungry piss ants with full bladders, and then rather emphatically tell you not to because the product would not function properly without that part.

These are glass light bubs (or "light globes" as some people call them), not flashlights designed to be bashed, thrashed, trashed, and abused. So I won't throw them against the wall, stomp on them, try to drown them in the toliet bowl or the cistern {toliet tank}, run over them, swing them against the concrete floor of a patio, use a small sledgehammer in order to bash them open to check them for candiosity, fire them from the cannoņata, drop them down the top of Mt. Erupto (I guess I've been watching the TV program "Viva Piņata" too much again - candiosity is usually checked with a laser-type device on a platform with a large readout (located at Piņata Central), with a handheld wand that Langston Lickatoad uses, or with a pack-of-cards-sized device that Fergy Fudgehog uses; the cannoņata (also located at Piņata Central) is only used to shoot piņatas to piņata parties away from picturesque Piņata Island, and Mt. Erupto is an active volcano on Piņata Island {In the episode "Les Saves the Day...Again", Paulie Preztail says "Hey, ever wonder why this park's called 'Mount Erupto' anyway?", then Franklin Fizzlybear says "I think its an old native term. Means 'very safe.'"}), send them to the Daystrom Institute for additional analyses, or inflict upon them punishments that flashlights might have to have performed on them. So this section of the web page will be ***SIGNIFICANTLY*** more bare than this section of the web page on a page about a flashlight.

Spectrographic analysis of this light blub.

Same as above; spectrometer's response narrowed to a band between
550nm and 620nm to show the Nd (neodymium) absorption spectral feature.

Test units were sent by a website fan sometime in (I believe) 2002 or possibly 2003.
