Here you will find LED lights Lux chart first and the Incandescent Lux chart second, but the Lux readings are all on the same scale - you can compare them directly. Some of the LED lights produce more light than a 2AA or AAA xenon light.

One thing I still don't have a good sense for is how led flashlights compare in brightness to standard incandecent bulbs. I have a couple Photon 3 lights and I've been looking at several others (Arc AAA, Turtlelite II, various Tektite models) but all of the comparisons I've found just compare one led light to another.
I have a cheap 2D light from Walmart that I picked up some time ago (it's labeled as a Garitty G-tech) and I'm trying to figure out what an equivalent led light would be in terms of light output. I'm fully convinced on the other benefits of led lights, but this is something that still confuses me.
I realize there is a lot of variation in standard bulbs so it's a difficult question to answer, but I'd appreciate any pointers. The light I have uses a Krypton bulb according to the specs on the package; is there a fairly typical output for a 3V krypton bulb? Would a Turtlelite II be similar in light output, or would I need something with 7 or 10 leds to match the output?
I'm sure this isn't a new question, so if it is addressed somewhere, please point me in the right direction.
