Common lighting bases codes
Here are the most common Edison base codes:

  • Medium = E26
  • Intermediate = E17
  • Candelabra = E12
  • Mini Candelabra = E11
  • Miniature = E10
  • Midget = E5

These lighting bases can be used for a variety of different lamp styles, from task lamps and desk lights to table lamps of all sizes.
