MaxLite releases JA8 Listed G9 Base Lamp
MaxLite lamp one of industry’s only G9 base products available for California use

WEST CALDWELL, N.J. (February 4, 2020) – Adding to a comprehensive portfolio of LED products that support California Title 24 residential lighting applications, MaxLite introduces new JA8 listed G9 base lamps for use in miniature decorative luminaires.

Available in 2700K and 3000K color temperatures, MaxLite G9 base lamps consume just four watts of power and emit 400 lumens of light (an output equivalent to that of a 40-watt incandescent bulb). UL listed, enclosed-rated and dimmable, the lamps measure approximately two inches long, making them ideal replacements for halogen bulbs in chandeliers, bath bars, wall sconces and other decorative luminaires. These price-effective miniature LED lamps are in stock in MaxLite’s U.S. warehouses, as well as available from MaxLite China for OEM use in residential luminaires.

“It was quite challenging to fit all of the electronics required for California’s JA8 specifications, such as low flicker, high CRI, and dimming, into a tiny G9 base lamp,” acknowledged Chris Primous, MaxLite vice president of OEM sales. “Through the innovative work of our product and engineering teams, we were able to develop and introduce the perfect lamp that had the proper performance, size and price point to meet the needs of California’s JA8 lighting requirements for Title 24.”
