## What does 100 watts mean on a light bulb?

Watt is the electrical unit for the rate at which energy is generated or consumed. So, when you turn on a lamp with a 100-watt bulb in it, it’s drawing 100 watts of electricity for every second it’s lit.

## Can I use 100W bulb instead of 60W?

For a 60-Watt fixture, you could use a 100W, 125W, or even 150W LED equivalent because they all consume under 60-Watts! … That means you could use a 150W LED equivalent bulb in a 60W socket and get more than three times the brightness of your old 60-Watt incandescent bulb.

## Is 100W too bright?

A standard incandescent is usually around 2700 Kelvin, emitting the warm light you are used to. An LED of the same color temperature and Lumens will have a similar glow but will still be brighter.

## Which bulb will glow brighter 60w or 100w?

Answer: The bulb rated at 100 W will be brighter. When both bulbs are connected to the rated voltage, they will dissipate the rated power. The brightness of a bulb depends on the power it dissipates, so the 100 W bulb will be brighter than the 60 W bulb.
