The following factors are considered:

Lumens

A measure of the total amount of visible light emitted by a source expressed as a unit of illumination.

LUX

An illumination unit calculates how much luminous flux is dispersed in a particular area.

Wattage

The wattage rating indicates how much energy (Watts) a light bulb consumes. Higher wattage bulbs are brighter than low-wattage ones.

Price

Should the other factors be equal, the lower-priced bulbs will always outrank the expensive counterparts.

Lifespan

This means how long the bulb will last. The longer the lifespan, the better. The numbers stand for hours of working time.

Customer Reviews of product

We analyze customer reviews on trusted retailers and provide a star rating from 1 to 5 for each bulb.

We don't use a straightforward average to calculate a star's overall star rating and percentage breakdown. Instead, our system considers how recent a review is and whether the review was negative or positive.

Popularity

Some bulbs are more popular than others, meaning people buy them more often. The popularity rating is based on publicly available sales reports.

Brand Reviews

Brand reputation is the score shaped by customer reviews. On average, some automotive light bulb brands have better press and reviews than their competitors.
