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.

    Quality

    Easy to install, great price, I am giving the quality 4/5 because I'd really like to see how long they last and as long as there are no issues with their operational life, I'll come back and give 5/5.

    So far, we love the intensity of the HP3s over the stock LP bulbs. May try the HP5s in the future but for now we're good.

    Looking forward to trying more of Diode Dynamics products. (Posted on 5/19/15)

    Got the SMD2 bulbs in Warm White. After I ordered I was thinking maybe I should have gotten the cool white color, but honestly I'm happier with the warm white. It almost gives it a still stealthy stock color, just strangely more beautiful, brighter, and luxurious. =D (Posted on 4/30/15)

    I bought the top of line led license plate lights for my 2013 Veloster. It's the cool white colour ones and they are great super bright and real easy to install. Follow your owners manual or check out a couple of YouTube videos. They look cool when it's dark and the lights highlight the dark pavement. Delivery was relatively quick considering I live in Surrey, British Columbia. (Posted on 12/18/14)

    I just installed the Stage 3 White LEDs. Very quick and easy install once you find the little tabs, helps to use a tool of some sort(flathead screwdriver). Rear looks very clean and is a significant upgrade from the stock bulbs. Lights the license plate up very well and also gives a nice aura of light behind the car. (Posted on 2/25/14)

  14. Fantastic lighting Review by Chris
    Quality
    Price
    Value

    I purchased the Stage 3 LED's for my license plate on my Veloster. The installation was incredibly fast and very painless. I did have an issue where I put the lights in the wrong way, however, there are only two ways to put the lights in, so flipping them around fixed the issue. At night, these lights give an extremely crisp light to the license plate and also provides a very defined light to the ground as well. Rather than the standard light bulbs that give off a yellowish color to the plate, these are pure white and really let you see the license plate much more clearly than you would be able to normally. For the extra money, I would definitely go with the Stage 3 lights. They definitely fit in very well. (Posted on 2/23/14)

    Quality

    I bought the stage 3 ice white LED's. These things feel very high quality in your hand, nothing is loose and the fit in the factory housing super tight. Easiest install I have ever done, took all of about 3 minutes to pop the old lights out and put them back in. Only problem I had was polarity, make sure you check that the lights turn on before you put the housings back in. Also, since the LEDs are so focused you have to switch the housings so the light points the right way, but if you remember those two things you will have yourself an awesome easy, cheap upgrade to your car that really makes it look great and stand out amongst every other car out there.

    I recently recieved my order from Diode Dynamics, and I am very satisfied with all of the products I recieved. My order consisted of the trunk, map, vanity and license plate stage 3 white LED's. I will review each of those items and my expirience when installing each light.

    Stage 3 White LED light for the Hyundai Veloster Turbo: This light is super bright. Visibility is amazing with this LED installed. The light install itself was the easiest of out of all the lights I have done for my car. Use a screwdriver to push the tab over and pull out the assembly. Simply turn the bulb holder out of the socket remover old bulb and plug new bulb in. Put the light assembly back in the bumper and done!!! (Posted on 12/6/12)

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.
