Figuring out halogen vs incadescent

weiss528iJuly 31, 2011

What is the equivalent incadescent output for a 60w halogen bulb?


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

A 60 Watt halogen will produce ~ 1200 lumens while a typical 60W incandescent will give out ~ 800 lumens.

You'd be looking at a ~ 75 -100W incandescent
