- The next important parameter is light stream quality, the unit of measurement of which is lumen, Lm (lm). The greater the ratio of Lm to one watt, the better the transmission of light.
- Colour temperature - this characteristic directly affects the psyche and mood of a person, measured in Kelvin. The lower the score, the more yellowish the light has.
- Life time - An important parameter that determines the reliability and economic benefits of the lighting device, is measured in hours.
