Is this a fluorescent tube, a CFL, or an incandescent bulb?

It would probably work, but your wasting tons of money because its a incandescent bulb. Replace it out with a 12-15 watt screw in CFL bulb, just make sure you get one in the 6500k range, most the time called daylight you can pick them up at a hardware store or even walmart.
