They are not available yet though the industry is working on it.

With that, rather than watts you really should look at the:

  • warmth/coolness of the light,
  • how many lumens it produces, and
  • how it throws (distributes) the light.

I think you might be surprised at the results.

When you tie all the parts together you may find that the light given off by a LED is more than adequate and easier on the eyes.
