You will notice that the inductive fixture seems brighter and the next couple of reasons show you why.
Reason #3 Higher Kelvin Value
The Everlast fixtures have a high Kelvin value. Kelvin is used to compare the quality of indoor light to light experienced outdoors. In normal daylight conditions, typical Kelvin values are between 5000 and 6000. The inductive lamp is very close to true, natural daylight as the bulbs have a Kelvin value of 5000K.
Reason #4 Higher Color Rendering Index
The color rendering index (CRI) (sometimes called color rendition index), is a quantitative measure of the ability of a light source to reproduce the colors of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source.
100 is natural daylight, so the higher the CRI index, the closer the light source is to natural light.
Standard 400 Watt Metal halide lamps have a CRI of 65. The Inductive bulbs have a CRI rating of 90+ making it one of the closest light sources to natural light.
