Until recently the power of a light was defined by its wattage (watts), however nowadays you will see that LED packages will also show lumens as well as volts, but what is the difference between these three? Well we answer all of these questions and more!Shop now
Watt vs. Lumen
Wattage of a lamp is the amount of energy/power that the lamp consumes and lumen is a unit for the amount of light/brightness produced by a light source. Lumen is actually a better way of knowing how bright a bulb really is as it indicates the light intensity and the output of that specific light whereas watt only indicates the energy consumption of the light. So the higher the lumen output is the brighter the light is, this is why now lumen is at the forefront on bulb and light packages when it comes to indicating brightness, so pay more attention to lumen output rather than watts!
