1Lumens, not Watts

You’re used to looking for watts when shopping for lights, as a proxy for how bright the product is. But, the brightness (luminosity) of a lighting product (lamp/tube/panel/anything) is calculated a little differently. Contrary to popular opinion, wattage is not a brightness indicator but a measure of how much energy the product consumes. It is like the 3-star/5-starratingsthat you on your home appliances, which indicates its efficiency.

There is an approximate correlation between the Wattage Rating and brightness in Lighting Products, but LED Lighting products are highly energy efficient as compared to your old incandescent glass bulbs. Hence, you should always check the ‘Lumens’ mentioned on your LED Lighting product before making a decision.

2Various Colour of LED Lights

LED lighting technology is available in millions of colours because of the immense flexibility in the technology itself. Moreover, it does not emit such a huge amount of heat as your traditional incandescent lamps. LED Lighting products are generally widely available in the Cool White colour (6500K, i.e. Bright Milky White, just like your Glass Tubelight illumination). However, other commonly available colour options are Warm White (3000K, i.e. the Golden Yellowish colour, closer to what you find in premium restaurants and premium hotel lobbies) and Natural White Color (4000K, i.e. Soft Whitish colour, similar to Natural Sunlight, closer to what you find in premium corporate boardrooms). There are LED lights that are available in RGB colours to suit your mood.

The light colour (temp of the colour) is expressed in kelvins if you want to be scientific. The lower the number, the warmer the intensity of the LED light. Anywhere between 2.700 and 3.500 K is your average incandescent. Look for this range of temperature when searching for LED bulbs if this is the colour you’re looking for. You can find an array of LED light online at reliable brands like Luminous for your unique needs.
