FUNCTION

License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your vehicle. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your vehicle! 

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

 With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your car looks at night.

 

BULB DESIGN

SMD2: Similarly compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: 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.

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.

Fitment. All bulbs use a quality inject-molded 194/168 T10 terminal, with a full-size base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 194 bulb. Just remove the old bulb, and plug in the new LED.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

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

 We strongly recommend white or warm white for license plate applications- the other colors are illegal in most areas. Please check your local laws before ordering.

BRIGHTNESS

Diode Dynamics offers several brightness options so you can choose what fits you best.  These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs!

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 Diode Dynamics 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 Warranty Information page.

    I ordered the HP3 bulbs in 6000k and they have made huge difference to the 07 Tiburon. The light cast does make it like a puddle light as well for the back of the car. it also gives the car a great look at the rear and makes it stand out. Highly recommended. (Posted on 12/22/14)

    I got the HP3's for my 2008 Tib. Order was fast and arrived with no issues at all. Installing the bulbs was easy. Just popped out the stock bulbs with a flathead screw driver and swap them out. The blue HP3's are much brighter than I was expecting, and a nice touch of style over the dull white from my stock bulbs. (Posted on 9/9/14)

    I purchased the SMD2 White bulbs for my license plated after one of my stock bulbs went out and a cop told me I had to have my license plated illuminated.

  10. SMD1 is Plenty Bright Review by Rob
    Quality

    Value

    Usually I'm a bit cautious of a ton of 5 star reviews, but in this case, believe them. I got a bright white SMD1 bulb, as they were sold out of everything else. I set my mind to the fact that they would be as bright or maybe dimmer than the stock lights...boy was I wrong. Even with 1 LED each these are really bright. They really made your tag visible and spread across the plate well in terms of even lighting. You'll never need to replace these most likely! Buy w/ confidence. Seriously. (Posted on 3/15/14)

Installation

Level of Difficulty: 1/10

Just unplug your factory bulb, and replace it with the new LED one. It is a direct replacement for your vehicle.

Accessing the bulb itself is quite easy. Usually, it is held in by two tabs, and you can pop it out from the outside of the vehicle. In some cases, you will need to remove a few screws, which are clearly visible. Finally, it may be held by clips from the inside, accessible when you open the hatch or trunk.

If it does not work the first time, try flipping it around in the socket, as all LEDs require the correct polarity.
