semiconductor crystal chip which, when activated by a relatively low
electrical current, emits extremely precise wavelengths of light with
efficiency and precision that conventional lighting cannot match.
LED components are encased in a durable, high-strength, optical grade
epoxy. LEDs are highly efficient and typically consume about 1/10
power consumption and are expected to last up to 50 times longer than
a traditional incandescent bulb.
LEDs are solid state and illuminate approximately 200 milliseconds
faster than a incandescent bulb. This allows motorists to react quicker
to changing traffic conditions. Because the light output from LEDs
is pure and direct, it is not as easily diffused by other interfering
light sources such as sunlight, reflections or glare.
LED "Retrofit" Bulbs:
LED replacement bulbs are typically manufactured in Taiwan/China/Korea.
A handful of LEDs are mounted into a base designed to replace your
typical parking, signal, or brake lamp bulb. Problem is, manufacturers
do not take into account that LEDs create light much differently than
your typical halogen bulb. These
are flawed products, hence the reason we call them: TOYS.
out these great features!
- Limited amount of LEDs plus narrow viewing angle results in significant
loss in light output and visibility.
- Low manufacturing cost typically involves using inferior quality
LEDs that are over-driven and will pre-maturely fail over time, not
to mention lackluster lighting performance.
- Every automotive lamp has specific light characteristics, therefor
there is no such thing as "plug-and-play" LED retrofit bulbs.
