FUNCTION

194 HP3 Bulb is a direct replacement for any 194 size halogen bulb. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.

 

BULB DESIGN

One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation. The bulb is made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is a pair of bulbs.

COLOR

These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including Cool White, Warm White, Blue, Red, and Amber.

 We strongly recommend Cool White or Warm White for the best visibility.

 

BRIGHTNESS

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.

 

QUALITY

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.

All Diode Dynamics products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited replacement warranty. For more information, please view the FAQ guide.

    Price

    I picked up a pair of these to put in my map lights for my 2015 Toyota Tacoma. They are awesome, but in my opinion too bright for a map light if you plan on using them at night while driving to find something. This was part of my first purchase from Diode Dynamics and I'm very pleased with thief products quality and actual brightness. I have used many 194 style bulbs from the usual suspects that claim 200 likes or something crazy. But I have found that those numbers are WAY inflated and the lights I have used so far have far exceeded my expectations! Get these bulbs, you won't be dissapointed! (Posted on 7/20/16)

    I ordered these bulbs because Diode Dynamics sells good products. That said, the first set I received were duds. It seemed that the leads were too short and, on one bulb, the diffusing cap popped off. I emailed customer service and they had a replacement set sent out right away. The second set was exactly as they should be. No flickering, diffuse light output and easy as pie to install. Thanks! (Posted on 3/8/16)

    I've ordered the 4000k LEDs and expected a "whiter" hue, but overall they look pretty good, closer in color to the halogen main beams. Light output is good as well and distributed nicely. Regarding durability, it's too soon to tell, but they seem to be built much better that the chepo ones from ebay. (Posted on 3/7/16)

Lucky for me I saved money and did them all myself with no time at all. The hard ones were the floors. The rest were very easy. These look so beautiful at night. I bought the blues one and they look amazing, it makes my car look darker. (Posted on 12/22/15)

    Just replaced 5 bulbs in my gauge cluster. Used the Cool White and it is so much brighter now. The needles stand out more and much easier to see the odometer and the trip mileage numbers.

Plan on ordering the ones for both mine and my husbands's map lights soon. Also did my husband's Grand Prix gauge cluster with these bulbs. (Posted on 9/21/15)

    I purchased these thinking that it as the actual amber turn signal but bound out it is the super dim side marker. I am super pleased with these and am astonished at how much brighter and new it looks. I can actually see the side marker from a distance now, just remember that the the more expensive you go the brighter it will be. I imaging that it will be a long time before I replace these with brighter ones as i have had these installed for a couple months now. (Posted on 9/11/15)

    I am impressed with the quality of these LED's for the price. They are a higher quality product than the LED's I replaced with these. I am using them for a Mustang front side marker bulb, so it doesn't have much of a reflector housing, but these would be very bright in a better reflector housing. (Posted on 9/9/15)

    The HP3 is perfect for the license plate. It is definitely brighter (and much whiter) than stock, but not too bright that it looks tacky...the HP3 was perfect. Looks very clean. I love the look. I was contemplating the SMD2... these would not be bright enough.. The 2015 Impreza has 2 license plate bulbs (must be access from inside the trunk), and the HP5 would definitely be too bright..

    I purchased these lights to brighten up the interior of my 2002 Chevy Silverado at night. These lights came well packaged and looked very well made.

  28. Pretty good. Review by Shawn

    Quality
    Price

    Bought a pair of these in amber to use in the side marker running lights on my truck. Didn't look impressive when I was installing them in the daytime, but they put out plenty of light in the dark. Seems roughly comparable in output to the stock white incandescent bulbs, maybe a bit brighter. It's hard to tell without a direct side by side comparison. I'm happy with that level though; not having to worry about bulbs burning out was my goal, not brightness.

    The diffusing optic is a nice change from the usual barrel shaped bulb to get a full 360 degrees of light. (Posted on 6/20/15)

    I purchased these for my side marker lights in the amber color. Very bright, and work flawless.

    The price was great and the bulbs came within a decent timeframe. The bulbs also look great and compliment my 6K HID headlights and fogs great at night giving a awesome all white look in the front. My only minor complaint is it took quite a bit to get the bulbs in the socket, but once they were in I knew they wouldnt budge! Great product overall, will definitely buy again! (Posted on 4/13/15)

    I recently replaced my license plate bulbs with these and I am super impressed. I had originally changed the bulbs out with some LEDs that i had bought off of eBay, but these blow the others out of the water.

    Much brighter than standard halogen 194s, but not obnoxious. I used them in my map/dome light fixtures, and they're not blinding while driving at night, but plenty of light to find stuff in the dark. They are a hair bigger than a halogen, but they still fit in the pretty tight fixtures. (Posted on 1/5/15)

    Bought these for my tag lights on my '14 KIA Forte.. Fit was spot on and the brightness is greater than expected. Only downfall I've found so far is the diffuser cap on one has fallen off.

    These new HP3 bulbs are PERFECT for license plate housings, map lights, even trunk or running light, we've used them for maps inside the genesis coupe and running lights on a Toyota Tundra and a few others! The cool white def gives off a nice wide pattern ! And the tighter fitment really holds in the socket so they don't wiggle loose like the smd's! Love It! (Posted on 12/9/14)

    Quality

    I purchased a few of these in cool white and in red. In comparison to a halogen bulb these are definitely brighter. They are also brighter than the previous SMD2's that I had. The red one's give a nice and crisp red color. I found them to fit in the socket just fine with no issues. I do like that they will work in any orientation. No need to flip it around 180 degrees. The quality seems to be very good. My hope is that they last longer than the 194 SMD2's that I previously had. (Posted on 12/7/14)

  38. 194 HP3 LEDs (pair) Review by Mario
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    A bit brighter than the standard two LED 194 bulb sold here. A bit bigger as well. I found that the socket was a bit wide (thick) so it was hard to push in the LED into the bulb housing. I order the warm white and it looked good. One complaint is that the little LED board with LED chips was soldered a bit cricket in the light. I didn't think it affects the performance , but gives this bad makes the quality control questionable. (Posted on 11/11/14)
