Just to give everyone an example of how much power a CFL (Compact Fluorescent Lamp) uses. My daughter has a small nightlight. The bulb brunt out the other day. My wife comes to me to find out if we have another one. I look at the bulb, C7 7W bulb. (Think Christmas tree bulb) What! you are kidding me, 7 watts for a silly little nightlight bulb! I have a 9W CFL globe lights in my kitchen.  Those lights are substantially brighter then a night light. Instead of replacing with an incandescence light bulb I opted for this.

Only cost $4 at Walgreens, and should last forever. Or at least until the kids destroy it.
