12V On-Solar Fluorescent Lamps and Bulbs for Home and Garden

Updated on December 23, 2011

12V Fluorescent Lamps and bulbs E27 & B22 great for home and garden solar projects!

High quality 12V DC CFL & CCFL / Fluorescent Lamps. These specially made, low energy lamps can be used for all manner of projects including Home, Remote Location, Off grid, Caravanning, Solar PV, Marine Boating including Narrow Boats & Barges and Farming to name but a few. Available in a variety of useful wattages to suit indoor and outdoor use.

Using high efficiency, low energy fluorescent lamps direct with a 12v dc power supply gives maximum light output with minimum power consumption. Using high efficiency low energy fluorescent lamps with your 12V DC application can make lighting options viable almost anywhere - the difference between night and day! The globe of the 3W cold cathode is just 55mm across and so will fit into most available light fittings and lighting units.

The new breed of low energy 12V DC CFL & CCFL lamps are extremely efficient and can provide a very powerful, high quality light source for general domestic and other lighting applications where either mains AC power is not available or where it is preferred to use a low voltage 12 volt DC power supply. Take a look at the link below to see the UK's finest low voltage compact fluorescent lamps. Available in powerful 11w and 20w which make great near equivalents to regular 60w and 100 watt incandescent light bulbs

OnSolar lighting products are full compliant with UK & EU regulations.

See our range here: 12V CFL Fluorescent Lamps

One of the best things about using OnSolar brand lamps is that almost any regular domestic Bayonet or Edison screw (E27 or B22) light fitting can be used including table lamps, standard lamps, reading lamps, bedside lamps and both indoor and outdoor fittings of the appropriate 'IP' rating.

DC lamps as so much more energy efficient when used directly with a DC power source. There is no energy wasted converting AC to DC or dropping voltage from the huge 240V mains supply down to a voltage suitable for a lamp. Convert your outdoor and garden light fittings to 12V DC simply by swapping out your old AC lamps for our special OnSolar lamps and use with a 12V DC power supply. We recomend using a solar PV panel and simple regulator to charge your battery; run all your exterior lighting from the power of the sun!

      I am waiting for the color of light that these bulbs emit to improve a little. Hopefully it will be soon.
