Watts vs Lumens

A 60 watt light bulb requires 60 watts of power to put out approximately 800 lumens of light. In contrast an LED light requires about 8 watts to put out 800 lumens. This makes conversions difficult. Below is a generic conversion chart that gives an idea on what LED bulb you need to replace an incandescent bulb.

Incand LED
450 lumens 40 Watt 6-9 Watt
800 lumens 60 Watt 8-12 Watt
1100 lumens 75 Watt 9-13 Watt
1600 lumens 100 Watt 16-20 Watt
 2600 lumens 150 Watt 25-28 Watt
