## What LED light is equivalent to 60 watt bulb?

As a general benchmark, an 800 lumen LED bulb produces the same amount of light as a traditional incandescent 60-Watt light bulb. But maybe you want to use something even brighter? For a 60-Watt fixture, you could use a 100W, 125W, or even 150W LED equivalent because they all consume under 60-Watts!

## What is a 2 watt LED bulb equivalent to?

Compare wattage

Traditional bulb1 | Halogen2 | LED |

75 watts | 45 watts | 9 watts |

## What is 60w in LED?

An LED that uses 60 watts is in no way comparable to an incandescent bulb that uses 60 watts. In fact, a 60-watt LED just may blind you. LEDs are designed to use less energy and naturally have a lower watt rating.

## How many lumens equals 100 watts?

To replace a 100 watt (W) incandescent bulb, look for a bulb that gives you about 1600 lumens. If you want something dimmer, go for less lumens; if you prefer brighter light, look for more lumens. Replace a 75W bulb with an energy-saving bulb that gives you about 1100 lumens.

## Is 3000 lumens too bright?

In other words, 3,000 lumens is meant to give a room a brighter light. This is not ideal if you have a small room and it’s a bedroom. You don’t want to blind your eyes when you’re about to go to bed. On the other hand, 2,000 lumens is ideal if you wish to light up a 200 square-foot living room.

## Can I put a 100W LED bulb in a 60W?

LED bulbs that deliver 800 lm are considered to have equal light output to standard 60W bulbs. … If your fixture is rated to accept 60 Watts, you can safely use 75W, 100W, or even 125W equal bulbs (which all draw less than 50 Watts of power) instead.

## Can I put a 60W LED bulb in a 40W socket?

Yes, you can use it! A 60-watt equivalent LED bulb uses around 8 watts on average. That’s 5X less than a 40-watt incandescent.

## What happens if you put a 100 watt bulb in a 60 watt socket?

Putting a 100-watt bulb in a 60-watt fixture could cause intense heat, melting the light socket and the insulation on the fixture’s wires. Any time you have that kind of damage on wires, you’re at a big risk for arc faults, where an electrical current falls off its intended path— a leading cause of home fires.

## Can I use a 100w LED in a 40w socket?

Originally Answered: Can I safely use a 100 LED bulb in a 40-watt-rated open-ended desk lamp? You cannot, since wattage of a fixture is decided not by light output, but by actual wattage of devices that can be used with it – whether LED or filament lamp.

## How much electricity does a 9 watt LED bulb use?

9 watt led bulb power consumption:

Yearly power consumption = 9*24*365 + 10% power loss = 78840 + 7884 = 86724 Watts hour.

## Which is better 40W or 60W?

So if a package for a lightbulb says the bulb uses 60 watts, or 60W, it means that that bulb will use 60 watts of electrical power. … A standard 40W bulb is equal to 400+ lumens, which represents the brightness of a bulb. Typically, the higher the wattage, the higher the lumens, and the more light output.

## What is 40W LED equivalent to?
