Comparing in brightness of LED strip and incandescent bulb

LED strips are much brighter than incandescent or halogen bulbs of the same wattage, but LED strips are not available in high wattages. Thus, when replacing incandescent or halogen lamps with LED strip, more LED connectors are needed. For example, to replace one 40W incandescent bulb you may need two 5W or 6W LED strips with connector. Although you have more LED strips, you are still using 80% less electricity.

LED strips use about 20% as much power to produce the same amount of light as incandescent bulbs. At higher power the difference is smaller. At low power levels the difference is somewhat larger. Electrical power is measured in watts. For example, a LED strip consuming 5W might output light comparable to a 30W incandescent bulb, and a 6W LED strip might be comparable to 40W incandescent bulb.
