I recently moved into a new home and there were the light bulbs that were in the bathroom ceiling. They are slowly burning out and I can not find replacements. I will be showering in the dark soon. Does anyone know what these are called or where to find them? I've never see a base like this.

Thanks

Take the bulb to a real lighting store.

Not your local BOX store, a lighting only store, most places have at least one that specializes in lighting only.


What does the printing on the bulb say, look at their website.

Looks like a normal edison base to me. I don't why it would have the button sticking up like that.
Have you tried a normal edison based lamp.

Does the button depress and then spring back out when released?

Does the bulb have a photosensor or opaque shading on one side?

Such a base with a depressable button is sometimes used for a bulb or device that may need to be turned a little more to be faced in a specific direction after making contact with the bottom of the socket.

You can substitute a bulb with equal or lesser wattage and with a base that screws into the same socket. It may be necessaru to use a paper clip wire with a tiny J bend at the end to lift the tab at the bottom of the socket to make proper contact with the new bulb.
