The light output of this type of LED is approximately 20 Lumens or the equivalent of about 20 5 mm LEDs. Since the old design, having 90 5 mm LEDs, produced an adequate amount of light, I decided to replace them with five Luxeons. That number also fit nicely into the available space of the fixture.
As of a few weeks ago, Luxeon LEDs are available with a warm white output (3200K). This color is between an incandescent and a Halogen light and is a ‘friendly’ white.
