asked in category: General Last Updated: 1st January, 2020# What is equivalent to a 60 watt incandescent?

**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.

Then, wHAT LED bulb is equivalent to a 60 watt?

For a **60**-**Watt** fixture, you could use a 100W, 125W, or even 150W **LED equivalent** because they all consume under **60**-**Watts**! The 150W **LED equivalent** produces about 2,600 lumens, while using only about 30 **Watts**.

Additionally, how many lumens is a 60 watt bulb?

Old Incandescent Bulbs (Watts) | ENERGY STAR Bulb Brightness (Minimum Lumens) |
---|---|

40 | 450 |

60 | 800 |

75 | 1,100 |

100 | 1,600 |

In this manner, what does 60 watt replacement mean?

The term “**60**-**Watt** equal” has little to **do** with any kind of **wattage** correlation; a 60W equal LED may use as little as 8 **Watts** to operate. It simply **means** that the bulb, whether CFL or LED, **is** able to produce as much light as a **60**-**Watt** incandescent.

What is a Type A 60 watt bulb?

Common 60 watt **incandescent** type A **light bulbs** are being phased out in favor of more efficient halogen, CFL and **LED** equivalent bulbs. Until inventories are gone, 60 watt **incandescent** bulbs can still be sold. Some of the 60 watt bulbs shown below may have a slightly different diameter 1.9" dia.
