An incandescent light bulb or bulb is a type of electric light that uses a wire filament that is heated until it glows. To shield the filament from oxidation, it is sealed inside a glass bulb either in vacuum or inert gas. Terminals or wires inserted in the glass supply current to the filament. A bulb socket offers mechanical support as well as electrical connections.
Incandescent light bulbs are available in a variety of sizes, light outputs, and voltage ratings ranging from 1.5 volts to approximately 300 volts. They do not need any external controlling equipment, have low production costs, and operate reasonably well enough on alternating and direct current. Resultantly, these incandescent light bulbs are commonly used in household and industrial lighting, portable lighting, including but not limited to table lamps, vehicle headlights, and flashlights, as well as decorative and advertisement lighting.
