Will an E12 fit E17?

This adapter will reduce the socket from your chandelier/fixtue from a intermediate (E17) size to the smaller Candelabra (E12) size socket. So you will be able to use a bulb that has a candelabra (E12) base in your fixture that has a intermediate (E17) socket.

Are E17 and E12 the same?

E12 is the smaller “candelabra” base. It’s used for nightlight bulbs, and sometimes for decorative light bulbs used in chandeliers and over bathroom mirrors. E17, “intermediate” base, is in between these two sizes. It’s sometimes used for desk lamps and appliance bulbs, but is not as common.

Can you convert E12 to E26?

Simply screw the socket adapter into E12 type socket, and then screw in an E26 bulb. Enlarge the chandelier socket (E12) to medium socket (E26). Widely used. Works with incandescent, CFL (Energy Efficient) bulbs and LED bulbs.

Is E17 same as candelabra?

The designation refers to the diameter of the base, in millimeters. Candelabra bases are smaller than conventional A-lamps which use a medium base (E26 or E27). Intermediate base lamps, E17, are far less common than candelabra and can be found in small table lamps, novelty fixtures, and ceiling fans.

What is difference between E12 and E14?

E12 is typically used for candelabra fixtures. E14 or E17 are also sometimes used, especially in small table lamps and novelty lighting, and occasionally the lights on newer ceiling fans.

Are B12 and E12 bulbs the same?

Are B12 and E12 bulbs the same? As mentioned above, the E12 is just the diameter size of the lamp – 12mm. The B12 bulb has a glass diameter of 12*1/8 inch. So B12 and E12 bulbs are the same.

Are light socket adapters Safe?

As long as you don’t overload the fixture or the circuit, those socket adapters would be OK, especially for a temporary setup like Christmas lights. The key is making sure you’re not overloading anything. Figure out what else is on the circuit with the outside light, and what size breaker protects that circuit.
