Correspondingly, are e26 and a19 the same?
To answer the question about whether A19 and E26 bulbs can be the same or not, YES they can. In the US, A19 bulbs must always have E26 type bases. This is based on ANSI standards imposed for bulb manufacturers in the US. That said, all A19 bulbs have E26 bases so all A19 bulbs are the same as E26 bulbs.
Secondly, is type A bulb same as a19? Physical outline. The most commonly used A-series light bulb type is the A19 bulb (or its metric/IEC equivalent, the A60 bulb), which is 19⁄8 in (2 3⁄8 in; 60 mm) wide at its widest point and approximately 4 3⁄8 inches (110 mm) in length. The A15 bulb is 15⁄8 in (1 7⁄8 in; 48 mm) wide at its widest point.
Subsequently, question is, what is the standard light bulb base?
E26 is the size of most light bulbs used in the U.S. It's referred to as having a “medium” or “standard” base. E12 is the smaller “candelabra” base.
What does the a in a19 stand for?
A19 refers to the shape and size of the bulb itself. "A" stands for Arbitrary -- just the name of the shape that's familiar to most of us. "19" refers to the size -- in this case, 19/8" (or 2 3/8") across. E26 refers to the type and size of the base -- the part that goes into the light socket.
