Hi.
I ordered new Super LED Bulb "Type R" ExtraWhite position lamp to exchange my old "yellow" filament W5W bulb.
So that's the result!
I thougt that would shine more then the incandescent light instead... I'm thinking to send them back ang get my money back!
What Do you think?
When I switch on the lights I can't understand if this LED are on or off since the have NO light!
I'm pretty sad! I waited 2 weeks to get this LED bulb!
I wanted new Really White Bulb that would emitt enough power...[V]

Wow!
That is really spectacularly bad and you should get your money back. I thought those were meant to be effect lights only at first.

I've never heard of anyone using LEDs for headlamps. You could have an array of several hundred LEDs and not get as much light as a plain halogen bulb.

I never said that those LED bulbs are for headlamps.
I said Position Lights.

The last picture is the difference between the new (on the right of the screen) 5700K halogen lamp and the old 4600K alogen lamp.

Is much more powerfull the left even it does have a green glare around.

You CAN get VERY powerful and bright LED's. They're a special type, but they're also a lot more expensive.
