what is the different of below bulbs?
- 60w, 120V, 180mA
- 60w, 120V, 190mA
- 60w, 120V, 210mA
what is it meaning of "mA"?
I installed a light switch with sensor function and using a bulb with 60w, 120V, 180mA. But, it's can't use a bulb with - 60w, 120V, 190mA or - 60w, 120V, 210mA, it will make the bulb flashing in standby status. Why?
m stands for milli which means 1/1000. A stands for ampere, which is a unit of current. One ampere is a name for one coulomb of charge per second.
Ps it would seem your switch is overly sensitive. What's its original intended purpose
I found out the reason from Philip, Home Depot on hwy-7. The light switch with sensor is not allow to use LED or CFL light bulbs. You have to use the original light bulb.
