Single-ended halogen light bulbs produce a bright white light making them ideal for use in task or general purpose lighting. These single-ended halogen bulbs offer long life lasting up to 2000 hours. Single-ended bulbs are used in light pendants, table lamps, ceiling fans and high-end decorative lighting. These bulbs should not be touched with bare hands. The oil from skin can create hot spots on the glass that reduce the life of the bulb.
