Bright but too big – 1.8W 36-LED Car Ceiling Dome White Light (DC 12V) Reviews

posted by f11lbert on 02/09/2013 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
Very bright and good color. It's 1.2W on 12v but I think that's close enough to advertised 1.8W (and on 14v it could be even more). So this is unusually fair comparing with other LED products with wrong wattage advertised.
Cons:
It does not fit my car. I have two festoon lamps, in gloves box (very small space) and central dome light (space is enough but the festoon is in center of it so you cannot place the board and the festoon connector simultaniously).
Other:
I cut off festoon connector, combined it with sku.148444 and placed into gloves box. Sku.148444 advertised as 1.5W but really is 0.5W, so it's useless as kitchen light but pretty good for car glove box. The board with LEDs I used as replacement of day-light mercury tube lamp in my old big flashlight (with 8 D-batteries). Now it's brighter than with tube-light and consumes less energy.
Bottomline:
Check available space for lamps into your car before buying that.
