310 lumens? still not as bright as a P21W – 1156 3.5W 68-SMD LED 310-Lumen 6500K Brake/Backup White Light Bulbs (Pair/DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
Easily replaces a P21W reverse light No significant heat generated. Will probably never burn out.
Cons:
Does not generate as much light as the original P21W. Seems about half as bright. May not be sufficient for you to see far enough when driving backwards. Not cheap.
Other:
If replacing an incandescent P21W, take into account that the color will change from warm white to cool white.
Bottomline:
Good enough to alert other drivers to your reversing, but not bright enough to light your way.
