Governments around the world have passed measures to phase out incandescent light bulbs for general lighting in favor of more energy-efficient lighting alternatives. A compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) uses a fluorescent lamp tube which is curved or folded to fit into the space of an incandescent bulb and contains a compact electronic ballast in the base of the lamp. An LED lamp is a light-emitting diode which is assembled into a light bulb for use in lighting fixtures. Some LED lamps are made to be a directly compatible drop-in replacement for incandescent or fluorescent lamps.
