Also there is not any standard energy star certificate or formula made from central government to know quality.

Technical parameters to consider while buying a high quality light are Lumens output (Lumens/watt), Power Factor, CRI (Color rendering index) and LED life in hours. Following table will help you to find out best LED bulb according to high specifications.

Parameter Average Good Best
Lumens/Watt 75 90 100
Power Factor 0.7 0.8 0.9
CRI 60 70 80

Beside these parameters also check how much metal (Aluminum) is used in LED bulb. Aluminum is generally used to provide better heat sink and extends the life of LED chip.

Philips Stellar Bright LED Bulb
Philips Stellar Bright LED Bulb

Philips: Philips LED bulbs are really most expensive in market because this brand don’t do any compromise in terms of quality. All Philips LED bulbs above 7 watt are efficient in terms of power factor and CRI. Philips is No.1 Brand in India so they need to improve lots in terms of lumens/watt according to price range of product. Philips LED Bulbs with lowers watt (4watt and below) have too much low power factor however it is not necessary in lower wattage. Philips provides 15000 hours of LED chip life which in average quality range.

Worth Buy : Philips Stellar Bright 14Watt LED Bulb

Havells Adore 15watt LED Bulb
Havells Adore 15watt LED Bulb

Havells: As a reputed brand, Havells has not strong quality LED bulb portfolio. For 3watt and 15watt, Havells has best quality bulbs. In middle range (5 watt, 7watt, 10watt), Havells still need lots of improvement because this LED bulbs are most demandable in retail market. Only Havells Adore 15watt has 100 lumens per watt (good output). Havells can make LED Bulb’s portfolio strong by improving middle range.

Worth Buy : Havells Adore 15watt LED Bulb

Osram Superstar Classic A 11 Watt LED BulbOsram: 100 years of old and most innovative company Osram has best power factor range in Superstar Classic A LED bulb series. Lumens per watt in higher watt models is also above good level. Osram has huge range of warm white LED bulbs. Osram is only a brand among the biggest players who provides dimmable LED bulbs.

Worth Buy : Osram Superstar Classic A 11 Watt LED Bulb

Eveready LEDBulb 14watt
Eveready LEDBulb 14watt

Eveready: This the only brand who is labeling 100 lumens/watt in each of its LED bulbs. You should buy Eveready LED bulbs above 9watt because below 9watt LED lamps has lowest power factor (i.e. 0.5). Buying LED bulb with such lower power factor in not a such wise choice because it consume same watt as CFL.

 Worth Buy : Eveready LEDBulb 12 Watt or Eveready LEDBulb 14watt.

Wipro Garnet N90001 9 W LED Bulb
Wipro Garnet 9 W LED Bulb

Wipro: Wipro has little small portfolio of LED bulbs but all of them can compete LED market in India. Wipro has impressive lumens/watt, CRI and power factor then other biggest players.

Worth buy: Wipro Garnet N90001 9watt LED Bulb

Oreva: Oreva has two series in LED bulbs (I) ECO Series (II) DX Series. Due to lack of data like CRI, power factor it is not possible to predict about the quality of product.

Bajaj: Bajaj LEDZ 5 watt and 7 watt LED bulbs are total OEM products. Price range is very low so not so bad in this budget.

SYSKA: New emerging LED brand SYSKA has two series in LED bulb (I)SSK-LB Series and (II) SSK-QA. SYSKA is also doing OEM just like Bajaj but it provides high power factor and CRI. Although price is higher, lumens per watt is still lower in all LED bulbs of SYSKA.

Charlston GlowUp LED bulb
Charlston GlowUp LED bulb

Charlston: Charlston is small brand but it provides unique designed LED bulbs with 5 year warranty that no one is providing right now in India. The GlowUp LED bulbs comes in two variant 5watt and 9watt. Both have high lumens per watt, power factor and CRI rating. This small brand can really give easy competition to big players like Philips, Osram and Havells. Charlston GlowUp LED bulbs are dimmable like Osram and has 50,000 hours of life (best life span on LED Bulb category).

Worth Buy: Both Charlston GlowUp LED bulbs 5watt and 9watt are worth to buy.

Moserbaer: Only two LED bulb of 5watt and 7 watt are present in its portfolio. CRI, power factor and LED chip life is very impressive but Moserbaer LED bulbs can not satisfy lumens need of customer due to lower lumens per watt.

Royal Lamp 7 Watt LED Bulb

Surya: When it comes to lighting, Surya is an also reputed Indian brands for decades. Surya has also started manufacturing LED bulbs. It is making economical and royal series. If we compare both LED bulb series, we find only difference in lumens per watt. CRI of surya LED Lamps is poor. Surya Eco LED bulbs are still struggling in terms of lumens per watt (i.e. 80). Higher watt in Royal series good in terms of lumens per watt but still you have to compromise with CRI.

    1. Hi, Mukesh

      You are right… This article was publish a year ago and we are gathering all data once again to make huge changes.. There will be lot of variations in many product so stay tuned.. Thanks for your comment,…. :)

  6. Though the comparison is really very nice. In actual, the build quality of bulb also matters a lot. For e.g. when I compared 7W LED from Syska with 7W LED from Philips, I observed the Philips one is more brighter than the Syska one, though the luminance of Philips are lesser than Syska, and the cost difference is also high.

    Also when two LED from Syska 7W PA Series & 7W QA series compared, the luminance is not visible much differentiated, but again there is high price difference, where Syska 7W PA series LED costs approx. 350 Rs, the 7W QA series LED costs approx 550 Rs. The difference is huge.

    Most of the shopkeepers & consumers does not even know this.

  13. I want to open a showroom of light fitting . So please tell me which brand to choose for entire residential, commercial as well as for industrial lighting with an optimum properties you have discuss above(CRI,PF, lumen etc).

  14. Syska LED is a very overrated brand. They are showing off through their ADs on the TV that they are most trusted brand but in reality their products suck and do not even last more than 2 months. Their customer service is also pathetic.

    I bought a pair of Syska LED bulbs SSK-SRL-9W from Flipkart in the month of June, 2016 but in the month of August (1st week), one of the bulbs simply stopped working. I doubt even the second one will malfunction soon. Till now I have been trying to get the faulty one replaced but no action has been taken by them. I have raised a complaint EC160813884 by calling customer care and also posted my complaint in their Facebook page but no luck. Only a computerized email confirming that they will look into that was sent to me.

    Now you can easily get the picture of how Syska LED is behind the scenes and how reliable they are!

  15. It would be good if you can also rate/review the commercial office space LED bulbs (e.g. 2’x2′ 36W or 42W and 8″ 18W or 20W bulbs for commercial spaces. There is so much marketing that it is hard to distinguish between products based on solid criteria.

  16. HI,
    My name is Nii Aryee from Ghana,which india led light manufacturer has a good quality product and also a moderate cost between Rs150 to Rs250 .

  17. Hi,
    I would like to know where can I buy Indian make LED lights( not the big bulbs or tubelights) to use in handmade diwali lights?

  18. I brought Syska SSK-RB Series 12,8,5 Watt for my new home, gives enough lumen, searching for Surya 2.5W , but not available in local market. This review helped me a lot for my EEE Group (wharsapp group). Any students can join this group by sending request to 09938090304.
