Why Wait? Get Light Fast with Quick Starting TCP TruStart CFL Light Bulbs August 16, 2012

TCP TruStart are the fastest lighting CFL light bulbs availableA common complaint about compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) is slow start time – turn a CFL on then wait a minute or two before it warms up enough to use.

Now, with TCP Inc.’s new TruStart series CFL, there is no need to flick the switch and wait. A small processor chip is incorporated in the ballast of TruStart lamps (or light bulbs), which greatly shortens the warm up time. Within a second or two, the lights snap on to a useable level, then quickly warm up to full brightness. You get useful light in seconds and full brightness in a half minute, which is twice as fast as regular CFLs.

The programmed start also allows the the lamps to last twice as long. A standard CFL is rated for 10,000 hours, while the TruStart is rated for 20,000 hours. And, TruStarts may be used with most occupancy sensors and other lighting controls.  

Use these little cuties in table lamps, wall sconces, recessed cans, chandeliers and ceiling fixtures. UL approved for damp locations, meaning they can be used outdoors in weather approved fixtures. And, the bulbs are backed by a three year guarantee.

Choose from:

  • 23 Watt (100 Watt incandescent equivalent)
  • 18 Watt (75 Watt incandescent equivalent)
  • 14 Watt (60 Watt incandescent equivalent)
  • 9 Watt (40 Watt incandescent equivalent)

All are availble in various light colors:

  • Warm white 2700K and 3000K,
  • Cool white / bright white 3500K and 4100K,
  • and Daylight white 5000K and 6500K.

Simply put, TruStart CFL light bulbs have the longest life of any bulb in the market, while achieving full brightness in record time.
