Lumens is the “new” way of knowing the brightness of a lamp.
Lumens = Light Output. Watt = Power.
The higher the lumen rating the “brighter” the lamp.
With LED technology, more light output (Lumens) can be achieved with less power (Watts). As technology improves, more Lumens will be produced using even less Watts. As a result, using Watts as a guide to…
