    Technically, a lumen is the light given off by an average candle, which average candles only have one wick. That's what the quantity of light that one lumen represents in measurement is based on: the light emitted by one average candle. So a one-wick candle would be one lumen, generally speaking. Obviously, when you get down to any specific candle, there can be some variance in how much light it gives off, but if it's average, then it's one lumen.

    Candlepower and lumens measure different light qualities, and 1 candlepower equals 12.57 lumens.

    Depends no the wick.  A tea light is different than a birthday candle is different than a 9 inch candle...
