If the load you want to drive with TIP41C is in between 40V to 80V than you can easily replace with the exact same match of this transistor which are TIP41 (Drive Max 40V Load), TIP41A (Drive Max 60V Load) and TIP41C (Drive Max 80V Load).
TIP41C Transistor Explained / Description
TIP41C is a low cost general purpose power transistor that can be used for amplification and switching purposes in your electronic circuits. It can drive maximum 6 ampere of load. It can be a perfect transistor if you are looking to replace a TIP31, TIP31C or other similar transistors in your circuit design to drive more load. For driving loads a suitable heatsink should be used with this transistor. The maximum collector-emitter voltage and collector-base voltage is 100V due to which you can use it to drive maximum 100V of load. Moreover the maximum collector dissipation is 65W which is an ideal output to use this transistor for many types of audio amplification purposes. The collector of the transistor is connected with two points one is pin2 of the transistor and other is the metal can tab of the transistor.
Where We Can Use it & How to Use
The TIP41C can be used in any general purpose switching and amplification application. When using as a switch you can drive many loads at the same time (The sum of all load should not increase from 6A). It can drive DC motors, high power LEDs, high power relays, bulbs, devices etc.
Moreover it can also be used for general purpose amplification purposes. For example signal amplification, It can also be used to build a simple high power amplifier circuit or other than that it can also be used in high power audio amplifier stages.

Wide Variety Of General Purpose Applications
How to Get Long Term Performance in a Circuit
To make this device stay stable for years in your circuits it is recommended to not drive load more than 6A, always use a suitable heatsink, do not drive load more than 100V, for good and stable performance always stay below from the max values and always operate and store the device/transistor in temperature above -65 centigrade and below +150 centigrade.
