They come in different wattages and colors with moderate (/33) to good (/827) light quality.

Small diameter tubes
TL Mini /827 (warm white) is ideal for applications where better color rendering and efficacy (than standard colors) are required like e.g. halls, staircase lighting in apartment buildings, kitchens, mirror, cabinet and cupboard lighting.
TL Mini Standard color is suitable for applications where color rendering is less important like orientation and emergency lighting.
