Then its a 65W light. I dont calculate out that my 4 96W lights are equivlient to XXX Watts of incadecent. Thats a crazy clame. Why would one compair a standard 100W incadecent light to a PC
florecent in the first place.
Another issue is they quote a lumen output. Lumens are to be the standard measure of light output where 1 lumen is equil to 1 candle burning at X distance. Well the problem is there are no established methods of testing lumens. Do you measure the lumen output at the center of the light, do you measure it at 4 points and average, do you take the reading at X feet or Y feet, etc.
I can also vouch that power compact bulbs in general run no where close to body temperature.
My 96W power compact will burn you if you hold it for more than a few sec, my 55W power compacts will burn you if you hold them for more than a few sec, Shoot my 13W desktop PC
light will burn you if you hold it for more than a few sec.
