Screw-in bases, also known as Edison screw lampholders are used through out the world. The conventions include terms like medium base and candelabra Edison screw lampholders. Often they are referred to with a letter-number designation that starts with an “E” followed by the number of millimeters in diameter of the edison screw lampholders.
If your base ends in a “d” this indicates a double contact Edison screw lampholders, this is typically used for 3-way bulbs.Typically North American 120VAC bases and 240VAC bases differ by only a millimeter and carry the same full name in each country. Many Eagle Light bulbs support both 120VAC and 240VAC, check specifications for the bulb to determine if the bulb

Edison screw lampholders E14, E27, E12, E26 are very popular in our daily life,“E” at the beginning is usually: screw socket, GU10 Gu at the beginning for our daily use of the bayonet. GU:G said lamp type is a plug-in, u said lamp presents a U shape, the numbers behind said lamp foot hole center distance (mm, mm). How to choose the right lamp holder,the tips as following:
At first, according to the outlook of porcelain lamp holder,6 tips as below:
A) surface treatment effect, color and sample plan according to the sampling plan
B) rated voltage, rated current, standard number, certification mark,
C) lamp model, voltage, current, certification marks a clear, complete screw cap mouth ring surface should clean and bright, should not wrinkle,
D) wires with smooth surface, no scratches, through parts no sharp edges, burrs, uniform insulation thickness, the thread processing reference samples (immersion tin, riveting terminal).
E) the wire is fixed and the screw is not dropped. Lamp shrapnel and hardware requirements without loosening, tilt, and lamp good contact,
F) no rust surface, no cracks in thick material specifications to meet the requirements, the damage.
Secondly, Edison screw lampholders sizes: ceramic total high and step size reference samples, allowing 1mm to the bottom of the lamp holder + shrapnel position 17.00mm + 0.50mm.
