Can I put a 60 watt bulb in a 100 watt socket?
For a 60-Watt fixture, you could use a 100W, 125W, or even 150W LED equivalent because they all consume under 60-Watts! That means you could use a 150W LED equivalent bulb in a 60W socket and get more than three times the brightness of your old 60-Watt incandescent bulb.

Can you put a 100w LED bulb in a 60w socket?
LED bulbs that deliver 800 lm are considered to have equal light output to standard 60W bulbs. If your fixture is rated to accept 60 Watts, you can safely use 75W, 100W, or even 125W equal bulbs (which all draw less than 50 Watts of power) instead.
What happens if you put a 60w LED bulb in a 40w socket?
Higher wattage alone doesn’t make the bulb burn out faster, but the rating partially has to do with heat/fire. For example, the fixture may only be designed to handle the heat of a 40W. Put in a 60W and the heat increases, there’s not enough ventilation, and the bulb prematurely fails due to the higher heat.

What happens if I put a 100 watt bulb in a 60 watt lamp?
Putting a 100-watt bulb in a 60-watt fixture could cause intense heat, melting the light socket and the insulation on the fixture’s wires. Any time you have that kind of damage on wires, you’re at a big risk for arc faults, where an electrical current falls off its intended path— a leading cause of home fires.
What happens if you put a higher wattage bulb in a lamp?
Using a light bulb with too high of wattage can lead to overheating of the light bulb. This heat can melt the light socket as well as the insulation of the wires. Once that happens, you put yourself at risk of arc faults, and this is something that could even lead to property fires.
How do I know what wattage light bulb to use?
Find Wattage Rating of Light Bulbs All light bulbs, whether they are traditional incandescent bulbs, fluorescent bulbs (CFUs) or LED (light-emitting diode) bulbs will have a wattage rating printed somewhere on the glass or on the metal collar of the bulb.
Can you use a 100 watt bulb in a 150 watt lamp?

Can I use a 250 watt bulb in a 150 watt lamp?
Originally Answered: Can I use a 3-way bulb in a 1-way 150w suggested lamp? No, unless the lamp is in a location where the added heat from a 250W bulb can be safely dissipated.

How bright is a 3w LED bulb?
We can now see clearly that a 3 watt LED spotlight would produce 300 lumens, not 600 lumens, so definitely not equivalent to a 50 watt halogen bulb. When choosing an LED bulb compare how many lumens the new LED bulb produces with how many lumens your old bulb produces.
