  • Lumens or Candlepower for Light Output

    Here is a link to one of several sources explaining how to compare lumens to candlepower.
    I just bought some LED bulbs with 25 lumens and wanted to see how it compares to the 2 candlepower of my standard #55 six volt instrument bulb.
    Looks like the light output will be the same, so all I gain is longer bulb life and much less power to run it.

    Thanks for posting this Tom. I get confused as all get out now when I go to the hardware store to buy household bulbs.
    They add new names to this simple product. Then increase the price ten fold. Oh well. Jeff
