What are Watt & Lumen, and how much do I need?

Lumen is a term that indicates how much brightness a light source produces, it can be recognized by the symbol "lm". In the past it was looked at how many watts and light output, the more watts the more light output. Now with LED lighting less wattage is needed and you can have as much or more light output. So you can have a 5 Watt LED lamp that is as bright as a 50 Watt incandescent lamp.

LED lamps produce little or no heat, unlike incandescent lamps. LED lamps also have a much longer lifespan. You don't have to miss the cozy look of an old-fashioned incandescent lamp, at INTOLED we now have the perfect solution: the LED filament lamp. It is an economical LED lamp with a lot of lumen that looks like an old-fashioned incandescent lamp.

The number of wattage means the consumption of the lamp, this has a nice connection with LED lighting. LED lamps need a lower amount of wattage and can produce a lot of lumen in contrast to halogen and incandescent lamps.

How much lumen do you need?
