The additional beauty of the 130-volt bulbs is that you can easily buy them from the dollar stores (four bulbs a box).
Cheaper than buying the name-brand bulbs from Walmart or K-mart (or wherever it is Middle-America shops at these days).
One of the 130-volt 60-watt bulbs that was in my entryway fixture died a few weeks ago after almost a YEAR and a half of heavy constant use.
Its companion is still going strong, supplemented by a similarly rated 40-watt (hey, it was all I had on hand at the time and besides, it's covered by a glass dish so who's gonna see!
