When it comes to LED bulbs, things can get very confusing. So many new numbers to look at and understand. It’s like going to school again. There are the color temperature numbers (1800K to 5000K), then there are the lumens, and let's not forget the watts. Wait there are two difference sets of watt numbers for most led bulbs.
