Amico 5/6 inch 5CCT LED Recessed Lighting 20 Pack, Dimmable, IC & Damp Rated, 12.5W=100W, 950LM Can Lights with Baffle Trim, 2700K/3000K/4000K/5000K/6000K Selectable, Retrofit Installation - ETL & FCC https://a.co/d/dT31u8Y

They are allegedly equivalent to 100W. I had 9 watt 650 lm Phillips BR30’s in the cans as well as some leftover flourescent lights that were claiming 750 lm. These are a bit brighter, but they also have adjustable color temperature. I set them to 5000k which feels a lot nicer than the 2700k br30’s

The other great part is they come on instantly in the cold, unlike the fluorescent lights that would take minutes
Very nice. Being an electrician myself i have done a lot of those. In my parents house I put in some Halo can trims that were color selectable as well and had a lumen output of 1200 lumens. Their dimmest version which I put in some closets and bedrooms were 800 lumens or so. The 1200 were definitely very bright. I’d love a bunch of those in a nice shop. That’d be sweet.

Looks great. I need to do something similar in my garage as the 8' T12's that are in there have ballasts that are starting to get pretty loud.

Unfortunately I don't already have the cans so I will have to mark out and cut all the holes, run the wiring, etc. Thus the procrastination.

You can always take the ballasts out and bypass them, and then put LED tubes in there.
