m00se Try Champion Lighting. Call them and tell them what you need.

Darkblade48 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).

HEINEKEN357 That's a hard bulb to find is it a 65w bulb? Only thing I can find is a 18watt 2700k compact STRAIGHT FOUR PIN.

"Power Compact" flourescents - 2700k source?

I'm hoping that one of the flourescent-gurus here can help me understand what a "power compact" is. Is it known by any other format notation, like T5's / T4's?

I'm trying to find a 2700k light for a coral life 24" fixture - but my google-fu is weak.
