How To Tell If Your LED Bulb Can Fit Into a Housing

When it comes to core bulb sizes and their derivatives, it’s good to know that these bulbs can fit into the same housing. These bulbs include:

9005 –> H10 (9145, 9155, 9150, 9140)
H11 –> H8 H9
880 –> 886, 889, 892, 893, 890, 862, 881, 884, 885. 894, 898, 899

Bulbs to the left of the arrow will be able to fit into the housing of their respective core bulbs to the right. This demonstration is based on the 9005 bulb with the H10 core.

The 9005 bulb is a derivative of the core H10 bulb, meaning that bulbs sizes such as the 9005, 9145, 9155, 9150, 9140 can fit into the H10 housing. At first glance, it may appear that the H10 bulb has tabs that cannot fit into the stock housing. Actually, the bulb can still fit into the housing with a little bit of twisting and maneuvering.

How to Install an Adapter for a HID Conversion Kit

Today, we tried to install an H11 HID Conversion Kit and we encountered an issue of it not lighting up, but we quickly found a solution that fixes this. The most common issue that causes the HID to not work is that it doesn’t get power. We all know that we have to check the polarities, but what if the HID doesn’t even receive power? Before you can even check the polarity, you have to make sure that the connector and the adapter are snapped in together properly. What we encountered here is actually a textbook issue because the adapter wasn’t completely snapped in; therefore it doesn’t even receive power.

1.) One of the reasons why it sometimes doesn’t completely snap in when you try to connect the adapter to the connector is that the stock wire is hidden all the way underneath, making it difficult to get a firm grip on both parts to snap the connector.

Even Osram Makes Bulbous Mistakes!

October 6, 2014:

One of our readers brought to our attention about bulb wattage in regards to H16 and H11.

To clarify, this post merely points out the varying shapes of the H16 and H11; this post does not refer to the bulb’s wattage in any way. When we mention H11, H16, 5202, we are talking about the bulb shape, regardless of the wattage.

Being the enthusiastic car lover that he is, one of our customers ordered some H16 LED bulbs from us to replace his stock Osram bulbs for his 2014 Toyota Corolla with the intention of making his ride look pretty sweet. The back of the Osram bulbs were labeled H16, but for some reason, the our LED bulbs didn’t fit.

15w 9005 LED Daytime Running Lights on a 2012 Acura TL

For majority of the cars you see on the road, you will notice that during the day the daytime running lights are a dull and unattractive yellow color which blends into the other vehicles on the road that share the same light. Car enthusiasts like you and I want to obtain a look that stands out from the rest and create a unique look that will be sure to turn heads where ever you go. We are proud to reveal our 15w High Power 9005 LED replacement bulbs being used on a 2012 Acura TL’s daytime running lights/high beams. Unlike regular LED bulbs which require load resistors and special components to function without errors or flickering, these are installed by themselves and have no issues; the lights operate at 15w so they consume enough power draw to function without needing any special components.

The color of these LED lights are rated at around 4500-5000K so they are an almost perfect match to the factory installed HID/Xenon headlights that come with this vehicle. The high power Samsung LED chip produces a bright 1200 lumen output; a noticeable difference from the factory 800 lumen output during daytime running light mode. The lights are completely plug and play and require no modification to the factory parts, all it needs is a location to mount the fan/ballast/driver assembly just like mounting an HID ballast. A matching set can also be purchased for the fog lights so the same type of light can be used when you are driving at night with your low beam lights on to complete your vehicle’s lighting transformation!
