    I have a burnt out PAR 20 floodlight countersunk into my ceiling. The label on the bulb says 50W 130V. I live in North America we have 120v 60hz power. I went to the hardware store - couldn't find a proper replacement and the guy who worked there didn't believe me about my 130v bulb.

    Can anyone explain this enigma to me?
