Why Your LED Lights in Your Euro Car Flicker (and why it’s OK)

Have you ever noticed that when you turn on your car, your LED lights strobe after installing them? If you haven’t, great!

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.
