Can I use LED instead of incandescent?

Similarly, is incandescent the same as LED?
LED light bulbs are much brighter than incandescent or halogen bulbs of the same wattage, but LED bulbs are not available in high wattages. Incandescent bulbs use about five times as much power to produce the same amount of light as LED bulbs. At low power levels the difference is larger.
Beside above, can I replace incandescent Christmas bulbs with LED? The short answer is no. You can't use LED replacement bulbs (if you can find them) to replace traditional mini lights on a traditional light string. LED light strings have extremely low wattages and require far less power than the standard incandescent light string.
People also ask, how do LED lights compare to incandescent?
The more watts, the brighter the bulb. That rule doesn't apply to LED bulbs, though. 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.
What are the disadvantages of LED lights?
- High initial price: LEDs are currently more expensive (price per lumen) on an initial capital cost basis, than most conventional lighting technologies.
- Temperature dependence: LED performance largely depends on the ambient temperature of the operating environment – or "thermal management" properties.
