What Is the Highest Home Wattage LED Light?

Save

LED bulbs come in a variety of wattage ratings and equivalent wattage ratings. The true wattage rating should serve as a guideline in buying LED bulbs. LED stands for light-emitting diode.

Misconceptions

  • There is a misconception that wattage is a unit of brightness. Wattage is a unit of power usage (as seen in higher electric bills). Brightness is actually measured in lumens.

Watt Ratings

  • The true wattage rating (the actual power drawn) is the lower rating listed on the light bulb package. The higher wattage rating is supposedly the equivalent wattage for a comparable incandescent bulb.

Brightness

  • To get the best brightness for the lowest wattage, divide the lumens by the true wattage. The higher the number, the more efficient the bulb is.

Highest Value

  • The highest true wattage found is 13 watts (100 watt equivalent, 900 lumens).

Considerations

  • Due to wear and tear, the brightness of an LED bulb can diminish over time.
