Phocos CFL 30WPhocos´s Compact Fluoresecent Lamps (CFL) with 15 W and 30 W power consumption open up a new range for 12 V and 24 V DC lighting equipment. The life span of the lamp is more than 10,000 hours. The new version of CFL lamps is now regulated by a DC-preheating circuit which makes an extremely high number of switching cycles possible (IEC925). The lamps are also equipped with an over-temperature protection (OTP) which causes the lamps to automatically switch off prior to overheating (especially when operated at extreme environmental conditions) and therefore prevents damage to the lamp. Thus, the product life span is significantly increased. Of course the lamps comply with the CE standards for low interference with radios and other electronic devices.The special shape of the 15 W tube allows the installation in locations where usually only incandescent bulbs fit. The lamps have a standard E27/Edison socket.

Here are some tips from the altE staff

  • Phocos compact fluorescent light bulbs must be wired with correct polarity (positive/ negative). Use care when wiring so as not to damage the bulbs. Test your leads and the bulb with a multi-meter to find the positive and negative.

Excellent color, slow turn-on


This bulb has a great tungsten color and is about exactly the same brightness as a standard incandescent 60W bulb. It does take about 2 seconds to first turn on, and then another 90 seconds to reach maximum brightness. Fortunately, it doesnt normally draw a full 15W. I measured just over 13W wit...

Very nice Bulb


The color is so much softer than regular flourescents. We will be buying more in the near future. Very Satisfied



The color is good and about the same light from a 60 watt bulb. Definitely satisfied. Technology is moving forward in leaps and bounds. Also, be on the look out for magnetic technology in the near future, very promising!

Camp Lights


We recently installed three CL1215W lamps to supplement/replace three propane powered gas lights in a remote camp. They are quite a bit brighter than the gas lights, which surprised us, and they don't drop half-incinerated moths onto the table. They started easily at about 20°F when we arrive...

Very Satisfied


Modified the hanging lamp over the computer desk from 110AC to 12 volt. This lamp exceeds the AC incandescent. Costs a little more, but has already paid for itself. Plan on modifying many more lights in my house. The light from the "warm" bulb illuminates = to an incandescent cause I ha...
