NOTE: 2015+ NEEDS 4 TOTAL BULBS FOR FULL FUNCIONALITY

FUNCTION

Door light bulbs are used to illuminate the step area when your doors are opened. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate this area with a cool, white light. By changing your door light bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your vehicle, while improving brightness for increased function and performance.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SML8: This bulb has a standard 44mm Loop design, with eight 1210-size Epistar SMD chips. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SML9: Standard 44mm Loop connectors, with nine 5050-size Epistar SMDs for superior brightness. Direct replacement, plug and play.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.

 


COLOR

These LEDs are currently only available in crisp, bright Cool White color, for maximum illumination.

 

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: 

SML8: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SML9 Slightly higher brightness than 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.

    They look awesome. I ordered the blue SML9 ones for my 2014 charger and couldn't be happier. They are very bright. (Posted on 10/31/16)

    I ordered the Red SML8 (38 Lumens) for my 2014 Charger. I installed these on all four of my doors and I like the way it looks. Installation was very simple, I installed all four within 10 minutes. I went with the SML8's because I did not want it crazy bright, just enough to accent at night. If you are looking for a strong LED to accent I would recommend going with the SML9 (88 Lumens). Overall a great product, and shipping was quick. (Posted on 9/19/16)

    This is a must buy if your charger is the daily driver... These lights produce so much ground light and it looks so good. The stock yellow/amber bulbs provided by Dodge can't compare to these. These will last longer, look better, and give off a brighter light, so in my opinion, this is a five star buy. (Posted on 7/19/16)

  8. Again not bad better than stock white-ish lights Review by Steven

    Quality

    These things were super easy to install on my 2014 Charger. The whole light casing pops out, much like the trunk light. Also much brighter than the stock white bulb.

    They also do a better job at lighting the surrounding area, and kinda looks cool in the process. Not just an eye-catcher for sure, these LEDs (88 lumens) definitely add functionality.

    Since I am from Canada, these things come out quite pricey in the end. But worth the extra coin versus building from scratch. (Posted on 5/5/16)

    Bought the SML9's in red for my 4 doors. While the install was pretty easy, the lights themselves are a bit weak. They can be seen at night, but faintly. Then again the red interior lights overpower these lights a bit perhaps. (Posted on 2/11/16)

    These just arrived today and got them installed! I ordered 3 packages of 2 each! Installed 4 of them in the puddle lights and 2 of them in the trunk lights! Install was quick and easy! If they don't work when you stick them in, these will need to be rotated 180 degrees because of the polarity. (Posted on 9/18/14)
