• Do not cover the lamp with paper or fabric, or place it close to flammable objects while lit up. The heated bulb will pose a fire hazard.


• Do not drop the lamp, expose it to impact with hard objects, handle it with force, or scratch the surface. The broken bulb may cause injuries.

• When replacing the bulb, check the rating (voltage and wattage) and socket base design of the new bulb. Ensure the new bulb in positioned correctly and snap it firmly into the socket. A loosely fitted bulb may come out of the socket, or overheat.

• Do not touch the bulb with your bare hands and avoid direct contact with the skin while the lamp is lit up or just after turning it off. The hot bulb may cause burns.

• Before replacing the bulb, turn off the lamp, and let the bulb cool down. The hot bulb may cause burns.

• After replacing the bulb, check to ensure no portion of the light fixtures or electric cord is touching the bulb. If this occurs, the heated fixtures or cord may cause a fire.

• Dispose of the used bulb on an as•is basis. If the bulb is shattered, the broken pieces of glass may cause injuries.

• Keep the bulb out of reach of infants and small children. They may swallow it.

Notes in use and design

• Double check the rating (voltage and wattage) of the lamp for applications other than in-vehicle use.

• Never paint the lamp.

• Avoid handling the lamp together with water or oil, or with dirty hands or contaminated gloves.

• Take sufficient consideration of the conditions of use when designing the lighting equipment. The performance will be significantly dependent on the operation status.

• Design the lighting equipment so that the components are not splashed with water, and free from condensation.
