    Works exactly as expected. PC Sync plug a bit loose, though

    posted by realbriguy on 12/17/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Works as I need it to. Functions as expected. It's triggering my flashes just fine so far.
    Cons:
    The PC Sync end is a bit loose, and easily comes out of the socket. It's not that hard to tape it in place, though.

    Does not hold full charge

    posted by realbriguy on 10/25/2012 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    Cheap

    Does not hold full charge. When I first received this, it would charge till the meter reads 100%... but the moment I unplug the...

    Great little

    posted by realbriguy on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Probably overall one of the best "peanut" bulbs available on DX. Very solid mount base (compared to SKU: 48178), and brightness between the two is just about even.
    Cons:
    Light spread is not as even as SKU 48178, but 48178 has a couple cons that places it lower than this bulb (for example: wobbly ...

    Fanstatic! Bright! Works as expected

    posted by realbriguy on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Extremely bright! LED technology with instant on/off and low power consumption for longer alternator and battery life. This is a dual filament bulb set, so it supports Off / Hi / Low. The difference between Hi and Low is great, which is perfect as a sign...
    Cons:
    I wish this had maybe one more light diode along the length of the body... that would give it a greater light spread. The way ...

    Works as expected

    posted by realbriguy on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Works exactly as it should. LED technology has instant on/off, and low power draw resulting in longer alternator life and battery life. I have one of these mounted in my high (third) brake light, and it works well. The instant on/off gives it a very dist...
    Cons:
    Not as bright as an incandescent bulb. Also, the spread is not as good as an incandescent, as expected. The body was also mou...

    Works as expected

    posted by realbriguy on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    For the price, you can't go wrong with these if you need a red LED. Bright, low power draw, and a decent spread. I have these mounted in rear parking lights. They're about as bright as the original incandescent bulbs.
    Cons:
    However, the spread is not as even as incandescent (as was expected.) It almost gives it a "sparkling star" effect, ...

    Very bright, but mismatched colour temperature!

    posted by realbriguy on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Very bright. MUCH brighter than SKU 34642, with great difference between Hi/Low filaments. Dual filament design works as it should. LED technology for instant on/off, and low power consumption for increased alternator/battery life.
    Cons:
    The bulbs I'd received had mis-matched colour temperature!!! One bulb is a slight bit more yellow than the other, which appear...

    Pros:
    Extremely bright! MUCH brighter than incandescent bulbs!
    Cons:
    Body is longer than standard incandescent bulb. Take this in to consideration when buying. Make sure it will fit! Also, the b...

    Works well, bright, average spread

    posted by realbriguy on 09/26/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    Fast response time to trigger voltage. Instant on/off as you would expect from LED technology. Bulb is fairly bright - I would say almost as bright as an incandescent bulb. Low power draw/consumption leads to longer alternator and battery life. Colour hu...
    Cons:
    Light output pattern / spread / dispersal is not as even as incandescent. It is still very visible, even when not viewing the ...

    Light spread good, but not too bright

    posted by realbriguy on 07/16/2011 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    - Lower power consumption - Instant On/Off - Clean looking "bluish" white light - Lasts long time
    Cons:
    My only real complaint with this bulb, is that there is not a big light difference between the low/high setting. The low setti...
