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 SMF2 or SMF6 bulbs, to improve the performance of your map lights.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SMF2: This bulb has a standard festoon base, with two 5050-size Epistar SMDs and a protective cover for added durability and style. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF6: Standard festoon base, with six 5050-size Epistar SMD chips arranged on a rectangular panel. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMD12 Board: This is an LED panel, fitted with 12 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with spring-loaded festoon-style 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:

SMF2: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF6: Slightly higher brightness than 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.

    Using SMF6 in 2015VT, Cool White color. They're really nice and bright (and not TOO bright), lighting up everything. Cool white color is really nice. Best of all, just pop the old bulb out, and stick these in. No modifications needed! BTW, I used the WARM WHITE colors for the VANITY lights. Figured warm white would be better for vanities so I don't look like a bright glowing ghost at night when I look in that mirror. =P (Posted on 4/30/15)

    I opted for the stage 2 6000k because I have no dome light on my Veloster and I love them. They are bright but not too bright, and the crisp white color is perfect. Very easy to install and have no complaints. Worth the money for a reliable set of LEDs. (Posted on 12/17/14)

    I ordered these on the fly hoping they would be what I was picturing in my head. They turned out to be better than I imagined. Very bright and the blue gives off a great accent in my Veloster. Lights came in less than a week after I submitted the order and were very easy to install. Price was perfect for these. If your hedging on getting these just go for it. (Posted on 3/5/14)

    Quality
    Price

    With LEDs being the future of lighting, and the Veloster being Hyundai’s tech-focused sports hatchback, I was surprised to find out that all the interior bulbs were conventional filament bulbs. Thankfully, Diode Dynamics comes to the rescue with their super bright Stage 3 LEDs to replace your OEM map light bulbs. Not only is the interior of my vehicle lit much more effectively, but the cool white lights match the LED lighting on the instrument panel for a stylish, 21st century look. Plus, they consume much less power so if I accidentally leave a map light on, I can go for hours without killing the battery! (Posted on 1/28/14)

    Quality
    Price

    Fitting these into my Veloster was very simple.
    The only issue was that the Diode bulb was a little hard to place in the stock housing, but since the Diode bulb had 3M tape on the backside I could stick it into place and finish with ease.

    In all I think it looks superb in my car. (Posted on 1/27/14)

    Bought the stage 2 ice white LED's. ONly took a day or two to get here and the install was even faster. As said before, they are polarity sensitive so make sure you test them before sealing it all back up. Great price, super bright, and definitely sets the car apart in the parking lot when I unlock my car, I can see everything inside the car and around the car. Might get the blue ones for when we go somewhere like a car club, since I have a red car, would look great. (Posted on 1/23/14)

    The LED panels don't fit flat in the map light housing. I had to put them in on an angle with one end up on the bulb socket. That said once hooked up and closed they do look great. Pure white light and LOTS of it. The mod works but it's not terribly elegant. (Posted on 8/1/13)
