Pygmy light bulbs are small, pear-shaped bulbs usually used in decorative light strings, festoon lighting, and sign lamps, but can also be found in some appliances in the home. Due to their small size, LED pygmy bulbs usually have smaller caps, such as the E14 small Edison screw (SES) cap. They are available in white or coloured options.
If using pygmy bulbs as part of outdoor light displays, ensure they are suitably IP rated or housed in a fitting with IP protection. Bulbs and fittings without IP ratings are not suitable for outdoor use and could be damaged if used in wet conditions. For more information about IP ratings, please click here.
