Well LUX uses high powered LEDs with a constant current power source around 1A I believe.
The 45 LEDs are probably getting less than 20mA per LED. The don't produce that many lumens. Also they are just slapped onto the base. They aren't aimed to take advantage of the stock reflectors.
The design of LUX utilizes the stock reflectors.
