Pros:
Easy drop-in replacement for your bulbs. It uses low power There are no power issues with it with it installed in my scooter. Dual brightness bulb!
Cons:
The spread of the light leaves a little to be desired. The light only shines in one direction, which makes the brake lights mostly visible from the back and not the sides. If your brake lights use large reflectors, these LED lights will not work very well.
Other:
I cut one of these open to see what was inside, there seems to be a 150ohm and a 50ohm resistor in it. Soldering looks hand done and rough, but that is ok, as long as it work. The unit is sealed in air tight with clear resin so moisture is not a problem.
Bottomline:
A good drop in replacement for small brake lights, but not ones with large reflectors.
