"While I was looking in my local supermarket in the UK, I noticed several
small CF`s that are direct replacements for normal household light bulbs. I
note that, on average, an eg. 10 watt CF would replace a traditional 55 watt
household bulb. Similarly, a 20 watt CF would replace a standard 100 watt
household bulb.

The ratio seems to be around 1:5."

The rule of thumb electric utilities tend to use in their energy
conservation programs is 1:3.  As someone later mentioned, these kinds of
CFs have warm color temps (around 2700K) to simulate the incandescent lamps
they're meant to replace.
