Description "TRAVEL - LITE AUTOBULB" in a cardboard sleeve. The cardboard sleeve is labeled as (A), while the bulb is (B). Printed on each side of the brown cardboard sleeve is the same "TRAVEL-LITE" logo. A red border surrounds a blue background with a thick, curved red line running through it. In this red line, "TRAVEL-LITE" is written in white text. A white lightbulb graphic covers the middle of the red line and the text within. Below the red line, "AUTO BULBS" is written in red text, one word on each side of the lightbulb graphic's base. The lightbulb itself is fairly plain. Several wires can be seen through the transparent glass, and the base is made from a brass-coloured metal. "2330"and "6-8V .32-32 C. P." are written on the base of the bulb. A rim encircles the base, containing three holes.
