Great led bulb – 1156 3.5W 68-SMD LED 310-Lumen 6500K Brake/Backup White Light Bulbs (Pair/DC 12V) Reviews

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

Pros:
It's a lot brighter and whiter than the standard P21W (1156) lamp.
I'm using it as for the reverse lamp and it does the job very well. Now I can even see in the night what's back with my reverse cam :D
It does not get as hot as a standard incandescent lamp.
Cons:
It's quite long, a few milimeters long and it wouldn't fit.
It has no protective housing, so you must be careful when it's inserted in the socket.
The price.
I've replaced the back fog light and it's possible to be a little annoying for others in the back if I light it up. (but, if it's dense fog they will surely see me)
So, no real cons!
Other:
I wasn't expecting to be so bright.
It does the job very well.
Low power consumption.
Bottomline:
I liked so much this lamp, so with the second one I've used to replace the fog light in the back (one bulb, under a red plastic thingy).
