FUNCTION

Trunk lights are used in the trunk or cargo area to illuminate the space at night. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.

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. 

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

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. This may need to be mounted to the exterior of your trunk light housing.

FlexLight: This is a 20-inch, low-profile LED strip, with 30 5050-size Epistar SMD chips. Comes with spring-loaded festoon-style adapter for direct installation. Mounts in your trunk area, flexible and waterproof, for maximum brightness.

Fitment. All bulbs use a standard 31mm terminal, with aluminum contacts, designed for exact replacement of your factory 31mm festoon bulb. Just remove the old bulb, and plug in the new LED.

PLEASE NOTE: SMD12 Board is an LED board, which may mount to the exterior of your trunk light housing. FlexLight is an LED strip, which plugs into your factory trunk light socket, and mounts directly into your trunk area using included adhesive strips or velcro. If you would like a direct replacement bulb, we recommend SMF2 or SMF6. We offer SMD12 Board and FlexLight for those who want to maximize brightness.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.


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 the best visibility.

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!
FlexLight: Extremely bright compared to OEM bulb.

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 love the flexlight because you can actually center the LED. I did not like how it was only one sided. I upgraded from stage 2 LEDs and I love them a lot. Very very bright. (Posted on 7/3/15)

  2. Very nice and bright light. Thumbs down for VT's light position! Review by i5lee.86it

    Quality

    So I still give the product 5 stars across the board. These are the best valued and excellently performing LEDs I've ever invested in (bought pretty much the whole set). Certainly not cheap. It does a great job illuminating the trunk. Unfortunately the light position in the Veloster trunk is somewhat dumb. Don't get me wrong, this bulb makes it much better especially considering the stock bulb stunk, only lighting a portion of one side of the trunk. I suppose I'm just really anal about keeping it look clean, uniform and sexy. I'll likely be purchasing the flexlight soon just to run the wiring and mount the strip somewhere that's centered. =) (Posted on 4/30/15)

    I can't believe how much brighter the Stage 2 6000k LEDs were compared to the stock halogen. I could barely see anything in my trunk before. Worth every dollar. Installation is a little weird because of the black plastic housing that goes over the bulb, but apart from that installation was simple. (Posted on 12/17/14)

    I bought the Stage 3 light for my trunk, Install was very easy although the bulb was slightly bigger than the housing on my Veloster.
    I just removed a piece in my trunk that held the stock bulb so the diode bulb could fit.
    No issues or problems, I love it! (Posted on 1/27/14)

    Anyone who owns a veloster knows the stock trunk light is garbage, not bright enough to see across the trunk, added my stage 2 ice white LED light to my trunk, and now I can see across my whole trunk. Being that I have the sunroof and no rear cabin light, it is a great addition, took no time at all to get here, and took me about 5 minutes to replace the light. Definitely recommend this to every veloster owner. (Posted on 1/23/14)

    I bought and installed the Stage 2 Blue light for my trunk and let me tell you. It's a lot better than the stock light! Better look and much brighter! Only thing I would consider them changing is the $5 shipping for a bulb. Other than that.. EXCELLENT PRODUCT! (Posted on 12/30/13)

    I installed the stage 2 blue LED and the brightness of this bulb is spot-on. The factory installed light barely illuminates the trunk... Luckily, Diode Dynamic offers an amazing replacement bulb. The installation was a little tricky once you remove the trunk light unit (black box housing), but well worth the trouble. (Posted on 12/26/13)

    Quality

    I purchased the Stage 2 trunk light for my 2013 VT. The install on the trunk light is super easy but I found that the black housing cover actually causes the LEDs to be pushed downwards at an angle. I opted to not reinstall the black housing since the LEDs are unidirectional. (Posted on 11/1/13)

    When I bought my Veloster and paid thousands for, I was a little disappointed in the factory lighting of the vehicle. It was very dim, especially the trunk. After paying a few dollars, for a stage 3 led panel for my trunk, I can see so much better, and it gives the trunk a great look! (Posted on 6/28/13)

    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 most difficult out of all the lights I have done for my car. I had to trim down each side of the LED board, so that the board could fit underneath where the light bulb would normally fit. Total time for modding the board and installing the light 10 minutes.
