We get lots of calls from customers looking for 60 watt equivalent candelabra incandescent light bulbs. What do I tell them? "Our candelabra LED bulb replacements are only rated as high as 40 watt equivalents BUT, they are brighter than 40 watts and you will be happy with them." The problem is, customers are left with either taking my word for it and buying them, unsure and order just one to test, or just don't believe me and continue on their search for "60 watt equivalent" replacements. So, in light of this, I wanted to show you that our 40 watt equivalent candelabra LED, that outputs 300 lumens, can replace your 60 watt candelabra incandescent bulbs. Just to be fair, I also took some pictures of the 40 watt incandescent candelabra bulb. Starting left: 5 Watt LED, 60 Watt Incandescent, 40 Watt Incandescent You should notice a couple of things; the light coverage within the bulb (how much light fills) and how well light brightens our light box. Since LED lights produce a higher quality visible light, an LED with slightly less lumen output than a incandescent or even a halogen light bulb can produce a light that appears brighter.
