LED Bulbs

There are LED bulbs in all types and sizes. There are bulbs for almost every conventional light bulbs. We at Rotech Elektrotechniek offer our clients all these different types of bulbs.
When buying LED bulbs there are a few things you need to know before you buy. One of the most important things is the comparison of the wattage of a LED bulb and the wattage of a normal bulb. Contrary to common belief, wattage isn’t an indication of brightness, but a measurement of how much energy the bulb draws. For incandescent, there is an accepted correlation between the watts drawn and the brightness, but for LEDs, watts aren’t a great predictor of how bright the bulb will be. (The point, after all, is that they draw less energy.)

For example, an LED bulb with comparable brightness to a 60-watt incandescent is only 8 to 12 watts.

But don’t bother doing the math -- there isn’t a uniform way to covert incandescent watts to LED watts. Instead, a different form of measurement should be used: lumens.

The lumen (lm) is the real measurement of brightness provided by a light bulb, and is the number you should look for when shopping for LEDs. For reference, here’s a chart that shows the watt-lumen conversion for incandescent and LEDs.
