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.

One of our customers installed this pair of 7440 LED Backup Lights on his Lexus GS430 to replace the dull yellow stock factory bulbs and results are quite fantastic. Not only are the LED lights brighter, but they also make reversing much safer. Anyone with these LED bulbs wouldn’t have to worry about backing into a trash can in the middle of the night because these LED reverse lights are pretty much as bright as day!

All New High Power LED Fog Light Bulbs with Diffuser Mirror Design

LED lighting technology is growing at a rapid rate and sometimes difficult to keep up with the new technology coming out. One specific new design is the diffuser mirror design built onto the tip of the LED bulb to create a cleaner beam pattern. Conventional LED bulbs do not have this feature available which is why the diffuser mirror design is superior in output.

We are all accustomed to see conventional LED light output inside an assembly housing where the light is reflected onto the chrome background. The new diffuser mirror design has a similar design reflecting light but the light output is much greater. The angle the diffuser mirror reflects the light onto the housing reflector creates a concentrated and focused cut off line similar to projectors in headlights. Having a focused cut off beam will increase the visibility on the road as compared to conventional LED lights where output is spread unevenly. In the end, the high power LEDs are bright, conventional or not conventional; however, the concentrated cut off beam will definitely draw more future interests.

Car manufacturers have implemented daytime running lights onto their vehicles as an additional safety feature. One vehicle in particular is the second generation Lexus IS that comes equipped with daytime running lights that also share the same bulb size as the high beams.

The second generation Lexus IS has become a popular vehicle since it was introduced in 2006. The popularity has grown over the years because the aggressive sporty body style and comfort. This entry level sedan has won over the young age group. We have received a lot of interests regarding the daytime running lights which is why we have tested countless hours to get the LED daytime running light kit to work properly on the Lexus IS. I, myself, own a second generation Lexus IS as well. I was very skeptical initially on converting the high beam and daytime running lights from amber to white. The whole process sounded like a daunting task. After reviewing the iJDMTOY Lexus IS Lexus IS250 9005 LED DRL Kit, every component included was a simple plug and play which made the installation extremely simple. I mean who doesn’t want a plug and play installation? It just makes everyone’s life a lot easier.

The daytime running lights are a standard feature on the Lexus IS with the intention of providing additional safety on the road during the day. Since the Lexus IS shares the daytime running light bulb as the high beam, it cannot take a LED on its own. In daytime running light mode, the factory module operates the bulb at 6V approximately 30% power and LEDs require 12V to operate. The Lexus IS250 9005 LED DRL kit includes two 9005 LED bulbs and 2 DRL Decoders to prevent any flickering issues once installed. The LED bulbs connect to the decoders and the decoders connect to your factory harness. It truly is as easy as it sounds. Once you replaced the 55W factory halogen bulbs and turned on the car, you will notice a significant difference the LED bulbs gives appearance wise. Once the decoders are installed, you can confirm there is no flickering by standing afar in front of the vehicle.

Changing out the amber color in your daytime running light would definitely make your car stand out from the crowd. Many people are accustomed to seeing amber for daytime running lights. Also, many do not believe it is possible to change it out to a white color. The LED DRL kit is recommended to any car enthusiast or anyone who loves their vehicle. It is time to take initiate and get rid of that dull amber colored light!
