Lumen replacement LED bulbs

The incandescent bulbs haven't really developed that much in the 140 years they have existed, while the development rate of LEDs is very rapid, with LED performance being doubled every 36 months, a development rate that is similar to the fast pace of computer development. There is no doubt that the future of automotive lighting belongs to the LEDs. What is LED? LED is short for Light Emitting Diodes. This is a form of transistor, doped with a substrate that emits light when current is applied. The LEDs have a number of advantages over incandescent lighting that are very attractive for automotive use:

- They are very insensitive to vibrations
- They last for the life of the vehicle (does not apply to headlight LEDs yet)
- They can be baked into moisture proof casings to be installed in all kinds of harsh environments
- They light up much quicker than incandescent bulbs
- They are extremely compact
- They can be made to emit different colors
- They run cool
- They give more light per supplied watt than incandescent light bulbs.

All these was combined in LED bulbs, made by Lumen. To read more about this brand and check all featured products, you can visit this page: Lumen Off-Road Light Bars, Day Running Lights & LED Bulbs at CARiD.com
Their high-quality replacement LED bulbs and first-rate sealed off-road lights are designed to upgrade and customize all exterior and interior light sources on your vehicle. The mirroring that the large number of compact transistors within an LED bulb creates is a sparkling, jewel-like effect that's dazzling to the eye, no matter what color light is produced. Their ability to illuminate two-tenths of a second quicker than traditional incandescent bulbs pays dividends that can save your life on the road. Lighting up a fifth of a second faster allows motorists behind your vehicle to see your braking or turning actions quicker. Check all the types of bulbs, available for your vehicle with this link: Mazda 2 LED Lights & Replacement Bulbs at CARiD.com

At a brief glance, looks interesting! Very pricey though... 30 some $s for a single fog light bulb? Unless it has a lifetime warranty I doubt many people would buy it.
Speaking of which... what is the warranty on them?

Do you have any optical testing with these bulbs? I know manufactures are now getting more creative in LED placement but unless the light is in the right places all you have is nothing more than a blob of light with little to no function.

Much like a mirror and the sun. You can focus the light to "light up" what you want. But both the sun and the mirror need to be in the correct spot in order to direct the light where you want it to go.

cab0oze, this bulbs are covered by a 1-year manufacturer warranty.
PublicHair, the manufacturer hasn't provide us with the results of any tests yet. But you can check those pictures to see, how the bulbs light up. LEDs typically last 50,000 to 75,000 hours once installed on your vehicle. LED bulbs produce a brighter, cleaner, more attractive light for exterior and interior lighting compared to standard incandescent bulbs.

Thanks CarID, good to know. Personally I wouldn't touch these because 1 year is a standard warranty and doesn't show that they have any more confidence in their product than any other LED product despite the "premium price".

cab0oze, all other brands that we carry have the same warranty period, but it doesn't mean that they don't have confidence in their products. We are the authorized dealer of Lumen Technologies and we stand behind our products and their quality. In case any issue appear during the warranty period, we will gladly assist you with the return or replacement.
