What is an E27 Lamp Holder?

Table of Contents

In the lighting domain, precision is paramount. The difference of just a millimeter can completely change a product’s compatibility and functionality. The E27 lamp holder, a successor to the E26, offers just that – a single millimeter’s difference in diameter but a world of distinction in compatibility. Every nuance in lighting matters, especially when it comes to ensuring seamless functionality.

Why the name “E27”?

Much like its predecessor, the E26, the “E” in E27 stands for Edison, indicative of its screw base design. The “27” is a reference to its diameter, which is 27mm. This differentiation, though subtle, is vital as it ensures compatibility with specific bulbs designed for this size.
