Good Morning. I know this isn't a hybrid specific question, but will post here nonetheless... I'm replacing my porch light bulb with an LED. Any thoughts on how many lumen will suffice? I only want it to provide enough light to avoid tripping on things in the area immediately outside our door, so 1 million candlepower isn't necessary. Will 130(ish) lumen be enough?

I think that the common lumen is 200, but from what you posted you could get by with just 130 ish. for what you want it to do. There should be a cross reference some where on line. I replaced mine with the 200, it's not all that bright for me at least.

We have a 300 lumens LED in our motion control porch light. It turns night into day a good 20' out from the camper.

Both are the same 130 lumen "bulb." The pics don't do justice; it lights up the area immediately outside the door nicely.

I'm a Tigers fan by proxy. My wife went there for grad school.

Could you please provide a link to the bulb you used? I was just thinking of this upgrade yesterday!
