Its the screw size, the days of bayonet fitting are numbered.
It's nothing to do with wattage or type of light etc just what it screws into.
Snapster beat me to it...
This LINK should explain more..
Great stuff. Thanks very much Ade_Osman
Your welcome, I use that company a lot for lighting supplies for my moth traps.
The E stands for Edison.
Interesting that the days of bayonet fittings are numbered, what goes around.....
Just what I wanted snapster. Thank you. thanks also to you timbo
Traditionally, the Edison screw bulb was called ES and has a diameter of 27mm, hence E27. We used to have the 14mm Small Edison screw, SES; the Minature, MES and the Lilliputian, LES
