Good bulbs for the price – BA9S 1.2W 70-Lumen 6500K 5-SMD LED Car White Light Bulbs (Pair/DC 12V) Reviews

Pros:
Nice white light. They are about the same size as a normal BA9S bulb so will fit fine. Light is spread quite evenly. Quite easy to disassemble if you need to reverse polarity. Build quality seems good but do not know how long they will last.
Cons:
Outer casing is negative and center and bottom contact is positive, this was a negative for me as it is the other way around on my car but will be fine for most people. The bottom cap can be squashed quite easily so be careful when putting them in. Do not seem as bright as a normal 5W bulb but they are close enough.
Other:
I had to disassemble to bulbs to reverse the polarity, was easy to do. Just use a knife to wedge the base from the plastic slightly then melt the solder at the bottom while pulling on the cap. You will be able to figure out the rest.
Bottomline:
Not a bright as a normal 5W bulb but good enough for the interior lights on my car.
