Can't compare lumens directly though because led light is directional. How much of that 100w bulb or the fluorescent tube is going where you can use it?

I found 900 lumen floodlights for $12 a few weeks ago. You think about sunburn walking near it.

Wish I didn't have to renew my Costco membership to try those tubes though.

I heard him say he was going to do a lot of work based on the assumption it was tainted. It may not be and he could save the hassle. If it is hot, back to Plan A. A test is about $40 around here.
