Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
Wide angle - very important for safety.
Color temperature is real white (neither bluish nor yellowish) just like they use on new vehicles.
The difference between sku.45608 and sku.28778 (13 5050 leds) is very noticeable

Cons:
There's no user manual.
The pictures on the box say that item is waterproof but nevertheless owner shouldn't wash it in some ways (by high pressure water washer etc).
Wires are isolated not good at both ends: near the lamp and near the connector.
Other:
It start working immediately when is connected to power (e.g. when ignition is ON), stops immediately after power off (ignition off) or headlights are on (if you connect yellow wire to the headlights). But when headlights are off - device turns on power after a while (1 to 2 seconds) in 2 steps: first: half power during 0.5 sec, then full-power mode.
When car's engine is running - at 14.1V DC - sku.45608 consumes only 0.8A (two lamps), and when voltage is dropped to 12v (or even 8v) regulator keeps original brightness. That's good: when you start engine, DRL doesn't blink like other more simple devices...
Bottomline:
Very useful device: consumes 10 times less power than headlights but makes the driving much more save.
