Answer: All of our ceramic incandescent bulbs are double Dipped 

Question: What is the wattage? 

Answer: Our C7 bulbs are 5 watts. *please see our C7-7 clear and our C7 twinkle for wattage. 

Question: What is the voltage?

Answer:  Our C7 bulbs are 130 volts, and will work in both 120v and 130v outputs.

Question: Why are they 130 volts? Isn't standard output 120 volts? 

Answer:  The voltage represents the amount of volts your bulbs can handle, so a 130v bulb is better than a 120v bulb! A higher voltage allows the bulb a longer life.

Question: Are these UL Listed?

Question: Can these be used in a string I already own? 

Answer:   90% of the time this will work. There are 2 points of contact the bulb needs to work; one on the bottom and one on the side. Most of the time our bulbs will work in other strings, so yes I would try it and if they do not work then you may need to replace the string or try a different brand bulb. You will also need to make sure the string can handle a 7 watt bulb in each socket.

Question: How many can I string together? 

Answer:  This particular product is just replacement bulbs. Our strings are sold separate. These can be made with green, white, brown or black wire.

Question: What kind of stringer do these lights work on? 

Answer:  The C7 bulbs will work with a stringer that has an E12 base. The strings come in green, white, brown or black.
