This entire line of C9 bulbs have E17 threaded bases which makes them compatible with traditional C9 cords so if your Christmas stash includes string wire thatís in good repair, you can purchase these retrofit bulbs to migrate your display from incandescent to energy efficient LED.
These bulbs have an E17 base. If you are unsure what size base bulbs you need, these are larger than a night light base which is E12. So if you are trying to match or replace bulbs, check to see if your sockets are larger than a nightlight. If your current bulb fits a nightlight then check out our C7 (E12) line of LED bulbs.
To fit a wide variety of tastes we have broad range of styles of bulbs from which to choose from.
Our styles of C9 LED bulbs:
Unless specifically noted (we have 2 categories of dimmable bulbs), our bulbs are NON-DIMMABLE.
This means that you cannot use them with animation unless they are noted as dimmable. quickly turning them on and off repeatedly will damage them. Only our dimmable bulbs can be ramped with a variable resistor or dimmer switch.
In other words, if you are planning to connect to an animation hardware and software package be sure to choose dimmable LED bulbs or stick with traditional incandescent lighting.
