## Can I replace 50W halogen with LED?

This is simple: a traditional 50w halogen has a beam angle of 38 degrees, so you just need to find an LED spotlight that matches this. However, you can get **LED’s** with a much wider beam angle, up to 135 degrees.

## How many lumens is a 50W halogen downlight?

What Lumens do I need to replace a Halogen MR16?

**Halogen Wattage** | **LED Lumen Alternative** |
---|---|

20w | 170-250 lm |

35w | 270-400 lm |

50w | 400-550 lm |

75w | 550 lm + |

## How bright is 50W halogen?

The higher the rating the brighter the light! A standard 50W halogen lamp outputs **400 lumens** so you probably need a 4-5W LED bulb with very efficient LED. With some slightly less efficent LEDS 7 or 10 watt LED will give a similar light to a 50 watt halogen.

## WHAT LED is equivalent to a 50w halogen?

LED equivalents to halogen light bulbs

Halogen Light Bulb Wattage | LED Equivalent Wattage |
---|---|

75 Watt | 11 Watt |

60 Watt | 8 Watt |

50 Watt | 6 Watt |

30 Watt | 4 Watt |

## How many lumens does a 50 watt LED put out?

We can also calculate that a 50 Watt halogen spotlight produces about **600 lumens**. An LED light would need to be about 6 watt in power to produce the equivalent 600 lumens produced by a 50 watt halogen.

## How many watts is 1200 lumens?

What wattage light bulb do I need?

Lumens | Incandescent bulb (12-18 lm/W) | LED bulb (80-100 lm/W) |
---|---|---|

480-720 lm | 40 W | 7 W |

720-1080 lm | 60 W | 10 W |

900-1350 lm | 75 W | 13 W |

1200-1800 lm | 100 W |
17 W |

## How many lumens is a 50 watt incandescent bulb?

Lumens to watts table

Lumens | Incandescent light bulb watts | Fluorescent / LED watts |
---|---|---|

1125 lm | 75 W | 18.75 W |

1500 lm | 100 W | 25 W |

2250 lm | 150 W | 37.5 W |

3000 lm |
200 W |
50 W |

## What is a 50W LED equivalent?

Typically a 50 watt LED is equivalent to **a 500 Watt Halogen** – giving the same light output but burning far less energy and therefore costing a lot less to run. You will need to check the lumens – i.e. how much light is thrown out.

## How many lumens is a standard halogen headlight?

Halogen lamps are the old standard

Most cars come with halogen lamps which tend to run at approximately 55 watts and emit between **900-1,000 lumens** of light. Halogen lamps give off a yellow tinged light. For improved visibility at night, the only way to stick with a halogen lamp is to use a higher wattage bulb.

## How many lumens does a 55w halogen bulb produce?

55w HID conversion kits use the same amount of energy as your original halogen headlight bulbs but produce 5 TIMES THE LIGHT OUTPUT! These heavy hitters produce **5,000 Lumen** of light output per bulb which is easily the brightest headlight bulb option out there by a long shot.
