TruStart is the first CFL of its kind, providing nearly full brightness in a snap. TruStart is ready for use right after the light switch is flipped, unlike many traditional CFLs on the market today that take minutes to reach a usable light level. Reaching full brightness in approximately 45 seconds, there is no warm up time or need to wait to have usable light, just like an incandescent light bulb. TruStart CFLs have an extremely long rated life of 20,000 hours (twice the normal lifespan), and are fully compatible with vacancy sensors.
