2.5 volt mini replacement bulbs.  These are your most common mini replacement bulbs and work for most strings with 50 or 100 lights (any time 50 lights are in one series).  These are NOT meant to be used in heavy duty 2.5 volt light sets which generally have 150+ lights or icicle light strands with 150 or 300 lights (these sets often require our 2.5 volt ES bulbs).  Package includes 5 mini replacement bulbs. 
Available in different color options.  If you are looking for amber/orange replacement bulbs, please view our listing for 2.5 volt amber replacement bulbs in a 20 pack.

How do I make sure these are the right bulbs for my light set?
Most light sets have a white tag near the male plug of the light set.  On this tag, there should be a notation something along the lines of "replace only with 2.5 volt bulbs".  After the voltage is determined, you then need to check the be sure that the amperes (mA or A) are correct.  Sometimes this will be written just after the voltage, and sometimes it is only mentioned at the bottom of the tag.  Please give us a call if you have any questions: 877-750-0971!
Are these bulbs pinched at the base of the glass portion?
Unfortunately, these bulbs are no longer pinched at the base, but this traditional rounded shape is the most commonly used in light sets now-a-days, and should work in about 95% of the light sets made today that require a 2.5 volt bulb.  We have been able to locate one pinched base option in this same wattage, but in clear only.  Here is the link to that product: VC-2.5PINCH
Please note: Because of the many varieties of bases/sockets on mini lights, these bulbs don't not come with bases. It is important to hold on to your old bases, so that these new bulbs can be assured a good fit. In order to replace bulb, bend wires straight, pull bulb out from base, and then slip the new bulb in place.

The sales person knew how to determine the correct light bulbs that would work with my Christmas lights. Other replacement bulbs would burn out as soonn as lit.

The mini replacement bulbs worked fine in our outdoor christmas deer decoration. I was not able to locate the 2.5 volt .425 watt replacement bulb locally.

I was pleased with my order. I was Very happy to have the bulbs available to me so I could complete my December project in February.

Advantages: All worked great

Disadvantages: Buying out of season was more expensive as I paid for shipping I would not have done if I bought them locally in season.

The bulb arrived quickly. I have replaced the burnt out bulbs and am ready to go or next year. My thanks to Hard to Find items because I am glad this task is done. I bought extra just in case more burn out next year.

Advantages: It was nice to find the bulbs available when they were no longer in the brick and mortar stores.
