  • Not as bright as expected

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    Inexpensive compared to stock bulb. Good quality. Runs cool. Won't drain your battery if accidentally left on overnight. Light is very white compared to orange-colored stock incandescent bulb.

    Cons:

    Not as bright as I was expecting for a map light/dome light on a 2001 Civic. It's okay as a map light, but not great. As a dome light, the light spread is not quite wide or bright enough to really light up the inside of my car. The stock incandescent light seems to do a better job of lighting up the interior. But I'm sure there is a physical limitation as to how many bright LED's you can cram into a 31mm holder.

    OtherThoughts:

    Good light output for the price, but I would be happy to pay a little more for higher light output. A 12V cree led would be ideal for a map light, but then it would use almost as much power as a stock bulb.

    Bottomline:

    Good light output for the price. Much cheaper, uses less power, and cooler than stock bulbs.
