Are LED lights dimmer than traditional lights?

The short answer is: No. LED lights use a lot less energy than incandescent lights but are just as bright. When shopping for LEDs, remember that the wattage doesn’t denote its brightness. A 5W LED bulb is as bright as a 50W incandescent bulb. The lumens (lm) rating of a light bulb is instead the best indicator of its brightness.
