  • The specificaiton says 600 lumens. But bear in mind that this is a white light, which means all three colors (red, green and blue) are at full intensity.

    If you want to use this for colored lights, they will be correspondingly dimmer. A red light, for instance, should be about 1/3 the brightness of white, since it uses only one set of LEDs.

    Also note that some colors work better than others - warm colors such as red, orange and purple work well, colder colors like blue and green wind up being too white to be attractive. Hopefully a software update can fix this.
