Wattage vs. lumens??????
    #283299 - 09/20/09 03:07 PM (7 years, 2 months ago)

I have been reading a lot about LED lights. I was wondering if their is a difference in wattage to lumens ratio. I haven't seen any yet but I'm still just starting out in this area.

Any thoughts on this????????

Well right now they are more like floro's. Have one of those flying sausers that a friend gave me and it's suppose to be equal to a 400watt light but it's more of a 250.
LED lights are going to be the future of growlights for sure but right now they are just getting started.

Remember when looking at light systems. If a light puts out 10000 lumens and uses 400watts and another puts out only 5000 lumens and uses the same 400watts the ones with less lumens is gonna run hotter. Energy in bulbs that isn't being put into lumens is being put into making heat.
