Function: LED Board SMD12 is a direct replacement for any 194 size halogen bulb, or any festoon application. A number of adapters are included with the board so that you can choose the festoon size or 194 base size. By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look. The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.
Design: This LED board has 12 SMD chips, arranged in a 4x3 matrix on a board with an adhesive backing. The board is 31mm by 45mm in dimension (1.25"x1.75"), so please make sure it will fit in your vehicle. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the board from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the board from reverse polarity. The board is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.
Color: These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including Cool White, Warm White, Blue, Red, and Amber. We strongly recommend Cool White or Warm White for the best visibility.
Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.
These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures.
