Megaman 141401

141401

4 of the 9 lightbulbs check tested by MarketWatch gave a lumen output over 10% lower than their packaging claim.  One of these was the Megaman 141401 LED spot, which measured an average lumen output of 22% lower.   MarketWatch carried out a full test on 20 samples to see if this finding was confirmed.

Measurements were as follows (click for larger image):

Megaman 141401

Results from the 20 samples again saw a lower light output than claimed on the packaging by an average of 20%, and a measurement of one energy class lower.  No lamp in the sample had a brightness of over 300 lm.  Regulation 1194/2012 specifies a 10% tolerance limit for the average result of the batch.

Manufacturer response

MarketWatch has communicated these findings to Megaman, but has yet to receive a response.
