Light bulb sockets in general.
At, we always want you to get the best possible quality lighting products available. We do that not only with our light fixtures but also with the accessories and parts that you need to repair existing ones. Light bulb sockets include all the different variations there are available. These are merely a way to make the connection safely to an electrical current that will supply any light sources. There are so many different ways to connect a lamp bulb, and the lamp base has everything to do with the connection. The lamp sockets are made for certain types of lighting, and all of these started somewhere when the original Edison light bulb was created. The most popular one is the E26 Edison screw base which has been used for incandescent lighting all the way up everything that you see today. It’s the easiest way to implement any new lighting because the base is so pervasive everywhere. People often refer to this as a regular household light bulb with a medium base, and that’s a general way people can talk about it. As long as you have a screw-in type of bulb that operates on 120 volts, you can put in a bulb almost anywhere. There are some things to keep it into consideration though. If you have anything that’s operating on a ballast whether the lamp screws in or not, you need to be aware that not everything is used in that socket. There is a simple common sense rule, but one that needs to be stated on occasion as some people think that when they see a standard socket, that they could screw almost anything into it. That’s not always the case.

HID bulb sockets.
HID light bulb sockets are another subcategory of the very high voltage sockets that have to be able to withstand a very high momentary pulse of voltage to start the HID lamp. You can’t use a standard socket with those type of light bulbs. Even though they look very similar and some of the HID lamps will screw into those standard bases, the voltage pulse will ruin a standard light socket. You always see a designation for HID use and the very high rating that it has. They’re often a little more money than the standard sockets of course, but they are made for a specialized purpose for everybody safety and proper operation of HID lighting.
