There 16watts

In fact I do know how bright they are. I just installed them on my friends YJ.

So would that make them equivalent to a 100-120W incandescent light then? Approximately equal to say, a set of KC's?

I would say around the 100w from the picture above it seems to put out about the same amount of my 100w KCs

Yeah, these are floods, not spots, but I would say they light up as much if not more than the KCs on my YJ. Lets just say I accidentally turned them on while a buddy was tightening them down, and it took him a few minutes to see correctly again.







But gosh was it funny

The lumen output is what you need to measure, not wattage output or amperage draw. The led lights put out a softer light than the harsh yellows and oranges of halogen and should be treated differently. Choose wisely because flying blind isn't recommended.
