I am considering getting these for my tail and stop lights; since they are the same bulb. or should I stick with a single bright LED or somthing different?

Consider following when you are updating your tail light to LED.
a. The strength of brightness. Especially under the direct sun light. It is very important for you being safe from being rear ended.
b. The perform life. It will be boring if some LEDs get burned , like my previous products almost one year ago.
c. The arrangement of the LEDs. The LED result depends on it.


I clicked your link of the picture and move it here:
Anyway, you will have to test it on your car before you can tell something.

Actually this has been brought up about a year ago. IIRC, the bulbs didn't work as well or there was clearence issues when they "expanded". But hey, try them out if you want and report back!

But I agree with Car-led with this one. LED's dont dispurse light as much as a normal bulb would. From what I know about LEDs (and its a little) that they are focused beams. So it will seem to give off less light than the normal bulbs.

The brihgtness strength is not the problem. LEDs can give off light even more than 20000mcd, it is shining enough even under direct sun light. The problem is the viewing angle. To apply LEDs to tail lights of automobile, the viewing angle should be no less than 70 degree

i have been looking at these, they have forward and backward facing lights as to utilize the reflectors in the housing.

There are totally 3 LED facing back. They may hardly make a use of the reflector.
Looking forward to installed pictures~~
