1157 HP11 is a direct replacement for any 1157-size incandescent bulb. This is one of the brightest bulbs we carry, as a clear improvement over halogen lighting.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb. The bulb may blink faster since it uses less power, and your vehicle thinks the bulb is out- to fix this, please see "hyperblinking" section below.



This bulb has four 1.5W chips around the sides, to fill in the light's housing and give a great appearance and full look, and one 5W LED chip with a projector lens on top to project outward. It uses an 1157-size durable inject-molded terminal and will fit as a replacement for stock halogen. It uses less power and heat than halogen bulbs, and will last longer, with its engineered aluminum heat-sinking technology. A component is embedded to prevent blowing the LED from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LED from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12v operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.



These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, bright amber or red hue. Choose the color of your rear turn signal lens


310 Lumens

Lumens: BUYER BEWARE! Most sellers just provide "calculated" lumen numbers, based on the maximum potential brightness of the LED chips on the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is not accurate, as the design of an LED bulb does not get rid of heat fast enough to run the LEDs at maximum.

These "calculated" lumen ratings are much, much higher than the true, measured light output, so it will look like competitors' bulbs are brighter than ours. This is because Diode Dynamics does not provide inflated "calculated" numbers; we believe it is misleading. We test the actual brightness of the bulbs in our lab, to provide real lumen output measurements. Our measurements are accurate, but they are usually much lower than the misleading "calculated" figures. Please click here to learn more about LED brightness measurement.



LED Components. Diode Dynamics uses only the highest quality LED chips in the production of its bulbs. This means we use only brand-name suppliers such as Epistar, Cree, Osram, and Samsung.

While our bulbs may look the same as others on the market, most copycat bulbs use economy-grade LED chips in order to reduce costs. This greatly reduces the reliability and overall brightness of the bulb when you compare it to Diode Dynamics.

Construction. Although LED technology allows for extremely long bulb life, the market is flooded with cheap LED bulbs that fail prematurely due to inferior construction. The worst enemy of LEDs is excessive heat, and when bulbs are not designed properly, they do not disperse heat as well, leading to premature failure.

Off-brand, cheap bulbs exhibit poor solder uniformity, high levels of flux in the solder, uneven chip placement, low-gauge terminal wires, poor assembly, and bulbs held together with inferior adhesives. At best, solder joints will crack and fail on low-quality LEDs after a few weeks of use. In the worst case, these bulbs can damage housings as the extra flux and adhesive evaporates and creates a residue on the lens of the housing.

Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment, and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high quality, and long bulb life.


The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because the new LEDs will use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out and warns you by hyperblinking.

This phenomenon will be the same for every LED bulb on the market- there is no such thing as a "no hyperblink" LED bulb, even though some companies advertise them as such.

Flasher Replacement: Replacing the flasher relay, the module that controls blinking speed, is the easiest option to correct hyperblinking. You can remove the flasher on your vehicle, which is a small relay module under the dash, and replace it with a new flasher designed for LEDs. You will only need one flasher for your vehicle, whether you are replacing just one pair or both sets of turn signal bulbs (front/rear).

Resistor Kit: If you prefer not to change the flasher, you can add resistors to the bulb's circuit, and mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, returning the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. Resistors are a universal fix for any vehicle. Our resistors are 50w, 6 ohm, and come with extra-long connection wires for easy install. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you should purchase one set for each pair, to create enough resistance for the whole turn signal circuit. The installation itself takes only 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit

  1. Much better than stock Review by Justin

    night and day difference on my car. i can almost drive by these with just my running lights on. (Posted on 7/20/17)

  2. Amazing quality Review by Justin

    Perfect plug and play performance in any vehicle i put them in ranging in age from 1973 to 2006. out preforms halogen bulbs immensely (Posted on 7/18/17)

  3. 3157 version in the car, 1157 in the bike Review by Mike

    Installed the 3157 version of these bulbs in the car. They are a vast inprovement over the standard version. Same effect when the 1157s (and two 1156s for the saddlebag lights) were installed in the motorcycle. If you decide to make this change in your motorcycle, to avoid using "loads", purchase an electronic flasher. It will flash at a normal rate no matter what the load (Posted on 8/2/16)

  4. Stop & Tail Lights Review by Timothy

    I purchased these for my 91 Toyota Supra along with the rest of the exterior bulbs during the Black Friday sale. I have the JDM tail lights which came with a factory tint to them so the halogen bulbs barely shown through but these LEDs are light night and day. Clear, bright red that brings the car up to date.

  5. Excellent Review by Matt

    Used a pair of these 1157 HP11s as Tail/Brake lights in my 1987 4Runner. Much brighter, and the red light looks much better in my faded lenses. These are pretty much perfect brightness, I've seen some that look like brake lights while on the running light setting, and are just blinding when the brakes come on. These are not like that, Perfect!! (Posted on 12/6/15)

  6. Outstanding Amber LED with No Off-Color Reflection when Unlight! Review by Jesse

    I ordered the amber 1157 HP11 LED bulbs for my car to get rid of the annoying orange reflection that glass bulbs give off when unlight, due to the glass being colored orange. These bulbs match the headlight bowl perfectly when unlight and do not cause any weird colors to reflect in the bowl. The output color is much more pleasing to the eye than stock bulbs, and the brightness far exceeds the stock bulbs. Thanks for a great product, Diode Dynamics! (Posted on 9/1/15)

  7. Rear tailight/Brake lights Review by Ron

    Got these in red & it's really bright. Liking it on how its making my 2014 Kia Sorento EX look. Sure my brake lights & tailights does not compare with the SX & the Limited Sorento models but I like it better then the stock bulbs. These are really good LED bulbs & I am very satisfied with them.

  8. Bright red Tail/Stoplight Review by Flyin' Dutchman

    Replaced the 4 standard 1157's on my Hyundai Entourage with 1157 11W Hi-Power LEDs, what a difference, nice and bright red.
