How bright is 4500 lumens?
Dark Sky-Friendly Lights Choose lamps that have a total visible light output of 4500 lumens or less. This is equivalent to about four 60-watt (or one 250 watt) incandescent bulbs. That’s a lot of light at night.
What does 1800 lumens mean?
The Wattage of the light is the amount of energy it takes to produce a certain amount of light. The higher the wattage, the brighter the light, but also the more power it uses. 100 Watt incandescent lamp produces 1700 – 1800 lumens and uses 100 Watts of energy per hour.
How Far Will 4000 lumens shine?
