How To Choose The Right Vintage ST64 Bulbs For Your Space?
The colour of the light that comes from the bulb affects your area. Light globes produce many shades of colour temperature. From very warm white to cool white to blue light.
If you want that charming vintage old world filament bulb retro look, then you’re looking for an ST64 Edison bulb that’s 2000K, to 2200K.
The two biggest mistakes made when choosing Edison light globes are:
- One: Too Bright
Light output or brightness is measured in lumens, not watts. A light bulb might have a number like this written on it. 200lms. The higher that number goes, the brighter the light bulb is.
If you get a led filament bulb that’s 800lms, that’s a bright bulb.
If you wanted your old style light globe to create a nice ambient look and feel in your space. You’d want a light bulb that isn't too bright, 200lms or less. Even better if the bulb was 200lms and dimmable, then you can dim the bulb and get the perfect amount of light.
- Two: Wrong Colour Light
This is a big one, choosing the right colour light. Light is measured in Kelvins. For example, our bulbs are 2200K. On the light scale chart 2200K is a warm white, where 2700K, 3000K starts to get closer to a cool white colour.
You’ve got to decide…
Do you want your area to have an ambient, welcoming, relaxing feel? If so you’ll want a bulb around that 2200K.

When the first Edison bulbs came out, they were that warm ambient white glow. If you’re looking to stay in theme then any vintage lights LED should be around 2200K and not super-bright.
Are ST64 Bulbs Water-Proof?
If you’re screwing the ST64 bulb into a socket that has a waterproof rating, then yes. The bulb stays water-proof because the socket seals around the top of the bulb.
If you’re using a socket that isn’t water-proof rated, then yes, water can enter the bulb where the metal meets the glass.
Can You Use ST64 Bulbs Outside?
Yes, you can use LED vintage bulbs outside. If you’re using them in an undercover area, that’s fine.
If you’re using them in festoon lighting, as long as the festoon cables sockets are waterproof rated, yes can use the ST64 bulbs in them. If the festoon cable is not water-proof rated, don’t use the bulbs in them.
