Lumens to Watts conversion

Luminous flux in lumens (lm) to electric power in watts (W) calculator and how to convert.

Enter the luminous flux in lumens, luminous efficacy in lumens per watt and press the Calculate button to get the power in watts:

lm
Light
source:
lm/W
W

Lumens to Watts calculation formula

Energy saving lamps have high luminous efficacy (more lumens per watt).

The power P in watts (W) is equal to the luminous flux ΦV in lumens (lm) divided by the luminous efficacy η in lumens per watt (lm/W):

P(W) = Φv(lm) / η(lm/W)
