: We have a recessed can light in our shower. The tag inside states that a
: 60 W incandescent in the max it can accomodate, but even a 60 W
: reflector bulb has pretty wimpy output. I'd been using a 150 W equivalent

I think the rating has to do more with heat dissipation.

Speaking of which...  I have a couple of open rubber covered light sockets 
hanging from a box in my garage, the type used for quickie lighting in a 
construction area.  In one I placed a 100W "Reveal" bulb.

Guess how hot an open bulb hanging in free space gets?  Hot enough to melt 
the solder!  The whole mess fell when the solder gave way and the socket 
pulled off the wires.
