    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Lower power consumption than regular 1156/1157 bulb.

    - Build quality is good.

    - Direct replacement for a 1156 bulb (no modifications needed)

    Cons:

    - Slightly less than equal brightness than a regular 1156/1157. (About 10% less bright)

    - Taller/longer than a regular 1156/1157 bulb (may not fit in some housings)

    - Cool white light may be annoying if using as a working area light or reading light in RV's.

    - These should be less expensive.

    OtherThoughts:

    - Light distribution in a reflector housing will be different than the regular 1156/1157 bulbs as the array of LED's block light from passing through where a glass bulb would allow it (make bulb dimmer in light box).

    - If you are looking to use these in RV's for a sitting/reading/area light I would suggest getting a warmer white bulb. These tend to hurt the eyes after a few minutes.

    - Some light boxes have lenses designed to focus light from a regular 1156/1157 bulb and will be less effective with this LED bulb.

    Bottomline:

    - Get this bulb if you want have lower power consumption.

    - This bulb will not be significantly brighter than a good 1156 incandescent bulb.

    - Check to make sure you have extra room for the longer/taller LED bulb.

    - Good if you are okay with a cool white bulb.
