Should I buy my nail lamp based on wattage?

You are here:


There are many contributing factors to ensuring you get a ‘proper cure’, but many are mistaken that wattage is the indication of how ‘good’ a nail lamp is. Watch the video above where Doug will explain.

Wattage and watts are not the same thing as brightness or intensity. Both LED and traditional style nail lamps consume electricity. And electricity is measured in watts, but the light emitted is measured in lumens.

Wattage = Electricity used per second, so as you can see, wattage will have no indication that you are getting the proper cure for your products. Always follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and purchase the lamp that accompanies your system, only then can you be assured that you are using the best and correct lamp for your products.
