FUNCTION

194 HP5 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

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

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

92 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.

 

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.

  1. Hands Down Best Exterior 194 Bulb! Review by AceManPeters
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I think the price is OK. It is the highest quality bulb I've held out of dozens of exterior & interior bulbs I've bought from eBay & amazon. I did find an interior bulb a hair brighter, but this HP5 is better for exterior outdoor placement (license plate), due to it's rugged design. (Posted on 11/26/16)

    After having one of the normal bulbs burn out on my 2013 Ford Focus ST I ordered some 194 HP5 LED's in Amber. I was not disappointed, they are much brighter than OE and cosmetically the bulb looks better to me. This is my second order from Diode Dynamics and I'm sure it won't be my last. Shipping has been perfect and they answered a question through email very promptly. (light that burned out was the corner Amber light in the headlight) (Posted on 9/9/16)

    After 4½ years and approx. 80K mi (subbing parking lights for DRL's) one of the side markers (Diode Dynamics 194 SDM9-5050) on my 2008 Hyundai Entourage failed. Replaced both side markers with DD 194 HP5's (Cool White, 92 Lumens). Although the SDM9's where listed at 92 Lumens, the 92 Lumens HP5's are much brighter, IMHO 2 to 3 times brighter. As always I am very satisfied with the quality of DD products and highly recommend them to others whenever I can. (Posted on 7/16/16)

  6. Small, bright, properly cooled Review by Alex
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I have tried a lot of different 194 LEDs from about half a dozen different manufacturers. Some lasted about a year, others as little as a couple of days before burning out. Since they are all going in the same car (2009 Subaru Forester), and many other LEDs on my car have lasted for several years (and are still working fine), I can only conclude that all of the failed bulbs likely overheated. As someone who works with electronics extensively, I know that excessive heat is the leading cause of failed components.

    I have now been using a pair of HP5 194 bulbs in my parking lights for about a month and, while they aren't the brightest I have ever used, they are still quite bright. In fact, it's probably a good thing that they are not brighter, because overdriving LEDs is a great way to cook them. I was pleased to see actual copper heat sinks built into these bulbs for sufficient cooling. They have a nice wide beam pattern, although there is limited light directed towards the base of the bulb, since the chips themselves face forward. The lenses help to widen the light output, but if your application relies heavily on light captured by a reflector behind the bulb, you may need to try a bulb design with side-mounted chips to maximize your output. I also like that these bulbs are small. Some 194 LEDs are far too large to fit in the smaller fixtures on my car, but these have no fitment problems. (Posted on 5/15/16)

    After some research and debate, I chose Diode Dynamics for my LED conversion. Little by little I'll be going LED with my old truck. These 194 HP5 LED bulbs (red) fit perfectly and light up first time. The finished look is excellent. I'm hoping for super long life and continued satisfaction. Yes, they seem a little pricey, but I'm willing to pay more for quality. And the warranty is the best I could find online. (Posted on 5/2/16)

    Yes, these are like NO OTHER led bulb on ebay or Amazon. I've tried a dozen of their latest.. and these are the brightest. I guess it's all in the heat sink.

    I used the HP5 for the trunk light (1) and the "boomerang" DRLs (2) on my car. Excellent. I was a bit worried they may be too bright, but these are perfect. At night the trunk is well-lit (much brighter than stock), but not too bright. The boomerangs are much brighter than stock and very white...the stock incandescent bulbs were more yellow-ish in color. Great purchase, I am very happy with them. (Posted on 8/1/15)

    Installed a pair of these for my parking lights on my 2013 Evo X.. The stock parking lights are more of a generic orange light, which looked pretty crappy compared to the bright yellow (Amber) fog lights I have. Installed these and now the Fogs match up perfectly!

    Hardest part of the install was probably the fact I have to remove the headlights.... which means I have to remove the front bumper... which mean I have to pop out like 1 million clips from the underpanel!!! God Mitsubishi, why you make things so difficult!!!!
