    well i assume 3w and 5w reffers to the wattage

    the 5w would obviously be allmost twice as bright, or use twice as much power

    but i dont see why it is advertised in that way, light from LEDs is normally measured in millicandela or MCD

    so whats the equivilent mcd for 3w or 5w? you cant convert them they are two totally diffrent units

    my umnitza angel eyes are 10000mcd
