Bright Intensity of LED AUTO Bulbs

Bright Intensity of LED AUTO Bulbs
  First of all, standard LED bulbs are generally not as bright as standard incandescent bulbs Whenever we are saying a LED BULB can replace a standard bulb, we are talking about this  LED has the same ” effectiveness ” as the regular bulb. Because lighting source for auto LED is also affected by some other opto-issues such as the reflection from the plastic module, creating better visual feeling than regular bulb.   We do not rate LED auto bulbs lumens:

What is current regulator and why it is important?

What is current regulator and why it is important?
We all know that even everyone calls car is suitable for 12v, and truck is for 24v, in fact, during the driving or starting the engine, the voltage usually increases peak voltage to 18V(Car) or 32V(Truck), while the voltage is going up, leads the current going up as well, but we have to know the sudden increase in current will cause the LED’s death since LED cannot endure the so sudden high current, for solving this problem, we add LED Driver IC(or we call

Where we install this regulator (IC) inside the LED Bulb?

Where we install this regulator (IC) inside the LED Bulb?
We add this component in where the space between the base and BACK PCB as following: Of course we cannot tell if the LED BULB has regulator added only by eyevision since we are not available to see inside construction, so what we need to do is to use the power supply to check if the current is in the same range. The Regulator we use is the LM317L from USA National Semiconductor: ...

Which Colors should we choose if my lens color is red?

For best results the LED color should be the same as the lens color or if bulb is behind a clear lens, use the appropriate color for turn and brake light functions. As an example: a red lens will filter out all but the red portion of the light so if the light is all red, none or very little light will be blocked by the lens. The light from a White LED contains very little light in the red portion of the visible spectrum so most of the light would be fil...

Turn signal “Hyper Flash” issues with LED bulbs

       LED brake/tail lamps will not flash with stock flasher units due to their extremely low current draw, the turn signals may flash faster than normal ( called "Hyper-Flash"). These installations will require an electronic flasher unit. Try to find flashers designed to work with LED bulbs, they will say "LED compatible". Often HEAVY DUTY flashers will also work with LED bulbs.       We offer some LED Flashers(Relay) in our Tail/Brake Turn Signal B...

Dash indicators reporting burnt out bulbs

 LED bulbs may cause some newer vehicles to indicate a bulb is burnt out (because of their low power consumption, car computer misjudge the bulb is burnt). Some cars indicate this by increasing the flash rate of the turn signals, some turn on a bad bulb indicator. The only fix for this is to install Load Resistors across the bulbs that are being indicated as bad. Some vehicles will also disable the cruise control system if a brake light bulb is being ind...

E Series

Introduction of “E series” E = Edison Screw Exx = the diameter in millimeters, even in the U.S., where the bulb glass is listed in  ighths of an inch. (For example, E12 has a diameter o Approx. 12mm.) There are four common sizes of screw-in sockets used for line-voltage lamps   Miniature E10  E10 bulbs are common on battery-powered flashlights, as are bayonet mounts  (although those are usually held in with a circular ...

Definition of LED color / Warm White, Pure White, and Cold White

Definition of LED color AMBER(YELLOW):   There is no such pure yellow color existed in LED Lighting, the Amber color means here Amber with some orange PINKY PURPLE:   Purple color in LED Lighting means the color between Pink and Purple, not real Purple, real purple should be ULTRA VIOLET and only for medical use because UV is not bright enough for bulb WARM WHITE: As known as sunset white, the kelvin range is between 3000K~4000K, ...

How to tell SMD LED?

SMD LED is generally classified by its size( eg. 5050= 50mm x 50mm, same for  1210 ), 5050 is the only type can be mounted into 3 LED Chips, please see following   illustration: Neither 3528 nor 3020 has enough space for 2 or above chips, to judge the qty of  LED in one bulb, necessary to calculate the numbers of LED chips but not LEDs ( eg.a bulb with 12 x 3020 SMD= 12 LED chips with 12 emitting points, a bulb with 12 x 5050 3 CHI...

We do not rate LED wattage because….

The operating voltage of a vehicle should be a range but not a fixed number, when we say car’s voltage is 12VDC, which means the voltage range should be kept between 10~18 V(18V is the highest possible peak voltage) and the average is approx. 14.6V, usually the standard of our products is 14V for CAR, motorcycle, scooter, some boats( we still call 12V in public); 28V for truck and some boats. ( we still call 24V in public) Therefore, when we talk about ...
