Brief History

S8 Bulbs are also known as wedge base bulbs (along with the T5 and LMW). These unique bases differ from Edison-style screw-in bulbs, bayonet bulbs, and bi-pin bulbs in that they are simply ‘wedged’ into a socket using friction to keep them in place. Initially developed for automotive applications, the S8 bulb can be found in several low voltage applications.
