MEASURING LIGHT

Measuring the brightness of light is not a very straight-forward task. Currently, the most common measure of brightness is the lumen rating. Lumens replaced the old wattage-rating system because modern lights consume far less power and are much brighter.

A single lumen is the measure of energy that’s released from a light. Imagine putting a transparent bubble around a light bulb and being able to measure all of the energy that flows through the bubble –this is how lumens are measured.

At NEBO®, we don’t live in a bubble and we know that as lighting technology advances, so must the tools used to gauge the performance.

Thus, many of our flashlights are now gauged by lux instead of lumens. Lux isn’t a measurement of the amount of energy released — it’s a measure of how much light is actually hitting your target.

We’ve recently introduced flashlights that have advanced optics designed to maximize energy efficiency by tightly focusing the beam of light. So you can light up the mystery across the field without wasting energy by lighting the ground at your feet.

At NEBO® we make flashlights that are designed to meet real-life applications and we use advanced engineering to create lighting products that conserve energy yet blast a powerful beam of light.

These lighting products are designed to illuminate the surrounding area — just like a household light bulb. Since light bulbs are rated in lumens, lantern output is rated using lumens.
