LED vs Halogen Wattage and Lumens

LED vs Halogen Wattage and Lumens

Watts (W) is the unit of measurement for power consumption. LED lamps come in different power ratings like traditional light sources. A vast array of different wattages ranging from 1W all the way up to 25W or greater are available in the market. The greater the wattage, the more energy the LED bulb will consume and generally the brighter the light source will be.

 Lumen Rating

The lumen (lm) also known as the luminous flux rating of an LED lamp is basically a measure of amount of light the LED lamp can produce. The greater the lumen rating, the more light the lamp will emit. The lumen rating is a useful figure for comparing LED lamps to conventional light sources. Note that it is possible for LED's to have different lumen ratings even though they are of similar wattage. A LED that has a higher lumen rating for the same wattage is a more efficient LED. It is also important to remember that a cool white light is brighter than a warm white light. Hence for a LED lamp, its cool white version will show a higher lumen rating specification than its warm white version.

 LEDs vs Halogens

Below is a table comparing our LED lighting products to halogens. The comparison cannot be purely based on the wattage of the LED product. Some very low wattage LED's can produce more light than higher wattage LED's. The more efficient the LED product is the more expensive it can be.

Note: This table is relatively old. Most of the newer LED lights are more efficient than the ones below. Some of the lights below have newer models that can produce roughly the same amount light while using 10-30% less power
