I have several 7" Perko dome lights which use regular 12V 60 W bulbs with a regular screw base. These are for general illumination, not spot or task lighting. I'm not interested in using LEDs for these lights but prefer to find 12V, 2800K (warm), compact fluorescent bulbs. All I've found are bulbs which are 4-5/8" or longer (including base) and I need something which is 4" in total length (or shorter). Does anyone know of a "short" compact fluorescent bulb in 12V? I can modify the fixtures to use different base if I can find a short bulb with a different base. So far, striking out on this one. Here is a link to a bulb of the sort I'm looking for but this one in the link is 4-3/4" or 4-5/8" length depending on which vendor I speak with...

Well, These are from the UK, but here are some links that you might be able to either shake some out of a US supplier or have them shipped to you. http://onsolar.co.uk/12V-3W-CCFL.shtml http://www.onsolar.co.uk/12V-11W-CFL.shtml The same company has some really nice thread in LED's as well though that is not what you are looking for. I really hope this helps as I know how hard it is to find just the product you are looking for. Michael
