FUNCTION

Map lights, or the pair of lights above your front seats, use incandescent bulbs from the factory, giving them a yellowish color. By replacing these factory bulbs with LEDs, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a cool white color, just like the map lights on newer luxury vehicles. You can also increase the brightness with SMD5 bulbs or SMD12 Board, to improve the performance of your map lights.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SMD2: Compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips mounted directly to the base connector. Direct replacement, plug and play.

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.

 SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with 194/T10 adapter for direct installation. Plug the adapter into the bulb socket, then just stick the board in place with the mounting adhesive pad. The board-and-adapter design allows for extremely high brightness compared to a simple bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs are available in many crisp, bright colors. White and warm white are the most popular colors, for a modern look with maximum visible light.

You can also select blue, red, green, or amber to add a unique look to your interior. Please note- when ordering these unique colors, we recommend moving to the next-brighter stage for acceptable light output.

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 lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
HP3: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
HP5: Nearly triple the brightness of stock OEM bulbs!
SMD12 Board: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!

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.

  1. SMD2 Map Lights Review Review by Graham
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I love these lights. They are the perfect light output for what I wanted and a quick and easy install! My only issue with the SMD2's is the quality of the light. I do wish it had a little more bolster and connection integrity. The lights also stay illuminated very slightly when the lights are on the "door position." Not sure why. So i decided to keep them on the "off position" when the doors open and just use them when needed; I typically do this anyway. As for install this is what I did.

    1. Remove the plastic covers. Look for the spot with the largest gap between the cover and the sun glass panel and pry there. The plastic covers are the clear / foggy covers. DO NOT TRY TO REMOVE THE ENTIRE SUN GLASS / INSTRUMENT PANEL FOR THE SUN ROOF. Just the plastic light covers.
    2. Use a plastic trim tool for this. I would not use a screw driver unless you want to damage your plastic. I found one online. You may also use a credit card.
    3. Each side of the plastic cover has 2 clips for a total of 4. Gently pull down and don't be afraid to pull with a bit of force. Once you get one side out move to the next.
    4. Remove the old lights.
    5 Install the new lights.
    6. Pop your covers back in.
    7. Enjoy.

    The only thing I would change about the SMD2 Map lights is the build. Make them a little more robust like the HP3 and HP5 and increase the price by a dollar and I'd be happy. The output is fine, but the quality is a bit low. I may replace in the future, but I don't need a brighter light. Also the lights stay lit just slightly when the "door position" light is selected, even when the vehicle is off and locked. Weird.

    Love Diode Dynamics!!!! (Posted on 9/20/16)

  2. Improved Appearance & Brightness Review by KViPG37X

    I purchased these bulbs before the 4th of July Holiday, DD processed it quickly and had it out to USPS within 24hrs. USPS delayed delivery. When the bulbs arrived they were packaged properly. However, one LED was defective.

    Contacted DD Customer Service and they handled a replacement with no hassle which arrived in 2 days (Shipping Disclaimer: DD is located in MO 4hrs away from my home in KS).

    I was very pleased with the final result. These bulbs are entry level but are more than enough light to vastly improve visibility and styling.

    Bulbs come with 3 year warranty, will be purchasing other products from DD in the near future for vanity LEDS, reverse LEDS and the "tail to turn" module.

    Thank you for your excellent customer service and quality warranty protected products. Very reputable, reliable and professional. Forget about cheap EBay knock offs to save a couple dollars. (Posted on 7/13/16)

    Map lights are one of the most important upgrades when considering bulbs. HP3 cool whites provide that nice led shine but not to bright where it is blinding considering it is right by your face worth every penny! Compared to stock bulbs well there is no comparison these blow them away! (Posted on 9/22/15)

    They call them map lights, but at only 24 lumen, they outshine most dome lights when they are both lit up.

    I was concerned the spade type bulb would cast a unidirectional beam, but that is not the case at all. Under the diffuser, a cool omnidirectional glow lights up the interior better than one could have imagined. The cool white is very pleasing to the eye. (Posted on 8/30/15)

    These map lights are excellent. They're a million times brighter than stock. They illuminate the entire cabin when they're on which is perfect. The stock bulbs were very dull and an ugly yellow. These are extremely bright and the white color makes it look 100x better and more modern. (Posted on 6/7/15)

    These are LED's from American soil so they're built with quality. They really light up the interior well and adds a nice one-off effect. I purchased my lights with the black friday sale and found it to be a decent value. Not a steal but not like I'm being robbed either. (Posted on 12/18/14)

    When I ordered these, the only thing I was worried about was having a hard time installing them, due to having no experience with any kind of lighting. Got them in the mail today, went outside, installed these and the license plate lights I order all in less than 5 minutes. Very easy install, and give the car a much cleaner look. A+ about to order the trunk and door lights next. (Posted on 8/14/14)

    I replaced the stock map lights with the "stage 2" SMD5 LED's and was thrilled with the difference. The LED's are a high build quality and the web page was extremely helpful in making my bulb selection. I was able to carefully compare the pictures of the various stages of LED's. I chose the white stage 2, because I was looking for a slightly brighter, whiter illumination. I am very pleased with the results. (Posted on 3/28/14)

    The Stage 2 LED bulb replacements I ordered were VERY easy to install. They look great, especially with a black leather interior. These bulbs are MUCH brighter than my stock warm off-white bulbs, and help when I'm searching for things in my car at night. Buying these was a great decision! Diode Dynamics has won me over - great products and great service! (Posted on 12/16/13)

    Quality

    (Read my review on City Light LEDs as well)

    I got the stage 1 Map Light LEDs because I felt if I got in the car at night, transitioning from dark to extreme white light inside might be overwhelming. That was a good recommendation by the support team. No more yellow lights! You really don't realize how yellow the OEM bulbs are in comparison to the white LEDs. Pretty simple to use a butter knife or putty knife, insert it in the front gap of the map light and pull down / back until it unsnaps from the 4 pins, pull out to incandescent bulb, insert the LED and within 5 minutes, you've got a classy looking interior. These LEDs are pretty tough and can withstand pushing on them to ensure they were seated. Do yourself a favor...well worth the time and minimal expense to make your classy car look classier! I don't know if it's just me, but if you have the metal trim in your G, the white LEDs make the swirls in aluminum just "pop"...almost like 3D!

    I got several LEDs and changed all the ones on the passenger's side first; just so I could do an "A - B" comparison. Excuse the pun, but it was like day and night between the LEDs and the old incandescent bulbs! Please see my attached photos. (Posted on 10/21/13)
