BR30 light bulbs are reflector type bulbs used in a variety of applications that require general area or directional lighting, such as track lighting, recessed ceiling lights, retail display lighting, or general household light fixtures. BR30 bulbs are now commonly made in incandescent, compact fluorescent, and halogen versions to varying degrees of energy efficiency and performance specifications.

BR30 is a coded designation in which BR stands for bulged reflector, and 30 is the number of eighths of an inch across the front diameter of the light bulb, meaning a BR30 is 30/8ths of an inch, or 3.75 inches wide. BR30 bulbs progressed from original R30 shaped bulbs by adding a bulged section below the major diameter of the bulb and above its base, creating a distinction for the BR30. An R30 or BR30 bulb is nearly always interchangeable as the difference is mainly cosmetic in nature.

BR30 compact fluorescent bulbs are regularly used in place of standard incandescent BR30 light bulbs for applications where energy savings are preferred. Dimmable BR30 compact fluorescents should always be used in fixtures operated by dimmer switches, and standard BR30 CFLs for regular on/off switches. The strongest and longest life incandescent BR30 bulbs use multi-support filaments, cooler gases, and silver reflector discs to reduce heat and enable lifespans up to 20,000 hours. Newer hybrid BR30 bulbs combine halogen and incandescent technologies to provide energy savings while maintaining the look and color tone of incandescent lamps. These "Halodescent" halogen BR30 bulbs use less energy than incandescent BR30's while maintaining comparable brightness levels.
