This Floxite Florescent Bulb T-5 (also called the T5/22W) measures 7-3/16″ in diameter across the bulb, and 7-1/4″ across if you measure across its base.
The T-5 bulbs that Floxite sends us are not identical. The bulb always has four prongs, but sometimes the prongs are recessed and sometimes they are not. Floxite says both will work equally well. Sometimes there are no identifying marks on the bulb itself. Sometimes this information is printed on the bulb: T5 / 22W 4100K 120V. However, in some shipments from Floxite, the bulbs have been printed with MO70618 or MO70108 or other similar numbers. Floxite sends us all these T-5 bulbs in boxes that say “T5 22W” and assures us that they will all fit.
This Floxite T-5 22W bulb originally had instructions for replacing the bulb included inside the box. Floxite is not consistent in including this information in the box, so we are copying that information here:
How to Replace the Bulb for a Floxite Magnifying Mirror:
A. Unplug the mirror from the outlet to avoid shock.
B. There are 3 screws on the back of the mirror which can be removed by a small Phillips head screwdriver.
C. Turn the 3 screws counter-clockwise to remove the mirror front. Gently pry off the glass mirror and put it in a safe place.
D. Pull up gently on the bulb which will release from the tape that is holding it. Unplug the four prongs, releasing the bulb, and discard the old bulb. Install the new bulb by plugging it in.
E. Put the mirror front back on by facing the glass part up. Line up the 1 inch frosted area of the clear plastic ring with the grooves on the inside of the bulb housing. Snap into place. If it does not snap into please, then it is not aligned properly.
F. If the old bulb is broken, be careful to avoid any sharp glass edges, which may cause injury.
G. Replace the screws and pull plug through the hole. Reattach the mirror, line up the plug to that the release button is facing downward and push into matching slots. Now align the mirror slots and turn the mirror part clockwise to lock into place.
The T-5 bulb fits three Floxite Magnifying Mirrors:

(2) the FL-10DS Floxite 10X Florescent Daylight Mirror Corded.
