Need help with bulb equivalent to this?

Can anyone help me with what bulb to get to replace this? It's my shower light bulb.

I think this is cfl, and I want led now, right? I just don't know what the conversion is and don't want to break anything.

You'll probably want around a 10-12w led bulb, typical led bulbs are around 6-8watts and will work just fine but if you want one as bright as the cfl you'll need over 10watts.

Don't worry, nothing is going to break if you get a LED bulb that has completely different specs than the CFL, as long as it screws into the same base. It's just that the brightness and colour might be different.

If you want the same brightness, as shabby said, you want a more stronger one, like 10-12 watts. The old CFL also had a 3,000K colour temperature, so either look for that colour temperature, or just get one marked "warm white" (as opposed to "cool" white) if you want the same yellowish colour (as opposed to a more white/blue colour).
