The A19 features a natural dome structure for a wider dispersion angle in order to fit everyday standard lamps, pendants, fans or general lighting fixtures, sporting 10 watts of power, while the BR30 has over 1100 lumens brightness at an efficient 15 watts of power, where both of them carry the patented HyperLux LED technology that delivers high brightness in variations of white and vibrant saturated colors.
