A power compact is a fluorescent bulb that generally has pins (on one side) that you push.

In contrast, T5HO, T5NO, T8 and T12 bulbs are the traditional fluorescent bulbs that you may be used to seeing.

There are also screw in compact fluorescent bulbs (the kind that have been replacing incandescent bulbs).
