Metal E10 Lamp Holders

Metal lamp holders offer many benefits to many users. Their simple design and low cost make them favorable for educational and craft applications.  Hobbyists love the small size of them and the fact that they can be hidden behind the walls or other parts. More technically savvy users like the high heat resistance of metal lamp holders.

E10 or Edison #10 is the most common size of metal lamp holders. In these lamp holders the diameter of the screw is 10 mm (about 3/8 inch). E10 is also the common size of light bulb for all traditional flashlights. E10 light bulbs are also known as miniature light bulbs or flash light bulbs.

There are four different models of E10 metal lamp bases to choose from. Product pictures and description below can help you in your selection.

Metal Lamp Stand E10B31

This is the most common lamp base for educational activities, science experiments, electronic projects and hobby activities. Its simple design makes it easy to understand for young students, and its small foot print makes it a perfect choice for hobby projects.

The legs have rivet/screw holes used for easy mounting while they are also the contacts of the lamp base. The legs that are generally on the opposite sides can be repositioned to different angles as needed.  It holds our 1.2-volt, 2.25-volt and 5.1-volt light bulbs.

E10B31 lamp stands simplify connections while making multi lamp circuits in series or parallel.

Miniature Lamp base (Lamp stand E10B31)
Product Code: E10B31

Used as receptacle for miniature light bulbs (LAMP HOLDER)

E10B31 lamp base is for low voltage applications. It is not recommended for applications that require more than 24 Volts.
The above images are linked to the price and availability page of E10B31.


Elevated metal lamp stand E10B21

This is a widely used lamp base for 6-V up to 24-V light bulbs installed on cardboard, light wood, plastics and metal surfaces. The screw base in E10B21 lamp bases are elevated to prevent short circuit when installed on metal surfaces and keeps away the heat when mounted on cardboard or light wood surfaces. If you intend to install the lamp holder under the hood of a car or inside a metal cabinet, then E10B21 lamp bases may be your best choice.

The legs have rivet/screw holes used for easy mounting while they are also the negative contacts of the lamp base. Another smaller contact between the two legs is used to connect the positive wire.

This lamp holder matches all of our miniature lamps.

Metal Lamp Stand E10B26

E10B26 is the second most widely used metal lamp base. In addition to its wide use in hobby, craft and education, it is also used as a main component or center piece of many plastic lamp holders.

The wings that also serve as contacts are smaller than E10B31 model, but they also have one extra hole that may be used as contact or as a mounting hole.

The overall length is 28 mm. It is about 10 mm wide and 13 mm high.

E10B26 lamp stands simplify connections while making multi lamp circuits in series or parallel.

Metal Lamp Stand E10B29

This metal lamp stand is mainly designed for installation on circuit boards and bread boars. It has two contact pins (similar to ICs) that can be inserted and soldered.

The small pin shape contacts also make this a favorite choice for craft workers who need to install a number of these lamp bases very close to each other. E10B29 lamp bases can be installed very close to each other or may even touch each other if needed.

The diameter is about 10 mm and the height is about 20 mm. The distance between the legs may be 9 to 11 mm.

Due to a more delicate and complex design, E10B29 lamp holders are not recommended for beginners or young students.

Miniature pin type E10 lamp holder

Overall benefits of E10B29 lamp bases include small foot print, high heat resistance, simple design, mountable on circuit boards.

Warning:

The pins of E10B29 lamp holders are slightly wider than common ICs and jumper wires. When trying them on bread boards you may need to apply some force and doing this may also damage the bread board.
