Ott-Lite Replacement Bulb - Very ExpensiveJul 22, 2010
By Linda (upstate NY)
I never would've purchased the Ott-Lite lamp I own if I'd known the replacement bulbs were SO EXPENSIVE! The 13-watt Plug in Swirl bulb lists for over $20 (guaranteed for 1 year with proof of purchase). At one time my local Joann Craft Store stocked this bulb and it was possible to use one of the store's frequently issued 40% off coupons to obtain a replacement bulb. But Joann's no longer stocks this Plug In Swirl replacement Ott-Lite bulb; it appears that Ott-Lite has redesigned many of its bulbs and this wattage plug-in type is no longer as commonly used as it once was. (I couldn't find a replacement in the Albany, NY area although two stores locally used to stock the Plug In Swirl bulb.) New Ott-Lites appear to have a screw-in type bulb. Unfortunately, all the Ott-Lite lamps require their own special bulbs and I've not found any company making generic replacements. That said, I like the lamp I have (which was also fairly expensive and only bought for its appearance and not for any special vision problem) but the replacement bulbs are more than a little costly.

So happy to have found this itemJul 10, 2010
I was so happy to find this item. My husband is visually impaired and the magnifying lamp is very important to him. When we needed to replace the bulb, I found that the configuration had changed and the stores in our area did not have the plug in bulb. I was so worried that we would have to purchase a whole new lamp. Thanks for having this item.

you made my life so much easierMay 25, 2011
I love the lamp on my desk that uses Ott bulbs. When the bulb burned out (after several years), I couldn't find a replacement anywhere until I tried Amazon. You had the exact one I needed and I got it in two days. Thanks for your help.

disappointedFeb 26, 2012
By Michael D. Hubert
I was unable to find a replacement bulb in local stores, so when I found a source online that was great news. I placed the order and received the replacement bulb very quickly. I could not see the stem of the bulb while it was in the package so I had to remove it, when I did I discovered that it would not fit in my lamp even though it was the replacement bulb specified to replace the original"OTT-LITE" light bulb. I was putting it back in the package to send it back when I read the fine print on the packing slip telling me that the product could be returned no problem (if it had not been removed from the package). So I have a light bulb that cost me in excess of $18.00 including S&H, it does not fit in the lamp I needed it for nor does it fit in any other fixtures in my house.

Replacement bulbSep 23, 2011

The Ott lites, all over our house, are great tools but the costs of these bulbs is ridiculous. Amazon's links to the supplier was the only way to find them, too.
