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

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

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 wedge-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 wedge-style adapter for direct installation. Mounts in your trunk area, flexible and waterproof, for 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.

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 SMD2 or SMD5. 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:

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!
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 bought the Cool White HP5 bulb for the trunk in my 2017 BRZ. The OEM light was very dim and yellow, not very useful or attractive. This bulb from Diode Dynamics is top quality. It's very bright for a small bulb and looks great. Visibility is awesome in the dark. (Posted on 10/11/16)

    I got the led strip for my trunk and while the lights do work fine the adhesive wasn't so great i actually opened my trunk and found that half the strip had fallen off. i reapplied n used some zip ties to get it to stay on correctly. other than that not really disappointing in the product.

    I bought the HP5 in Cool White to replace an inferior trunk LED that the previous owner installed. It was a dim, bluish 'white' that miserably failed its ONE JOB. Now, I can see even the deepest recesses of my 7 cubic foot cargo hold. Highly recommended! (Posted on 3/19/16)

  8. BRIGHT! Review by Sammy
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I purchased the flexlight option. I wanted something to shine brighter and be more center with the trunk. There two objectives were achieved. I can see everything inside with ease and it even shines a little outside the trunk. The only downside is the adhesive. It tends to peel in really hot weather like on a hot summer day. I had a hard time getting it to stick and had to buy adhesive of my own and even get a new strip of flexlight. Hopefully, it will hold this summer. (Posted on 2/10/16)

  9. Great Lights But Not So Great Adhesive Review by Brian
    Price

    Quality

    I upgraded to the flex strip and found that after a few days, the adhesive did not stick to the metal on the top of the trunk very well. I ran out to my local crafts store, picked up a strip of adhesive magnet, removed the adhesive on the flex strip and replaced it with a cut strip of adhesive magnet. It now stays on my trunk nicely and haven't fallen since! (Posted on 1/25/16)

  11. Very Easy, but wear a glove Review by Michael
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    The trunk light is simple to change out. First you grasp the light cover between thumb and forefinger, squeeze a bit and pull it off.

    The bulb itself is a little trickier because:
    1.) the bulb will be hot if it has been on were figuring out how to get a hold of the light cover and
    2.) if you have your head in the trunk to SEE the bulb, you probably aren't at an angle to actually use your hands to REMOVE the bulb.

    So, get out of the trunk. Face the open trunk from behind the car, put on some non-bulky work gloves and reach in to grasp the bare light bulb with the fingers on your right hand. Pop it out with a firm motion to the right.

    Putting in the new LED is just a matter of pushing it in to the (now empty) socket and replacing the white light cover/diffuser.

    Be amazed at the new whiteness. :)

    This trunk light LED is perfect for adding that final touch to your lighting system. The install is very quick and easy. Removing the cover and replacing the OEM bulb with the new LED bulb literally takes 2 minutes. This minor modification makes all of the difference and adds color and character to the lighting inside the trunk. I would definitely recommend this product for someone who wants to enhance the look that the OEM bulbs give while adding more light to the trunk. (Posted on 8/31/14)

    I ordered the 12 LED version and couldn't be happier. I ran the wire out of the plastic shield for the OEM bulb and used the included tape to put the strip as close to the middle as possible. It lights up the trunk so much nicer than before. (Posted on 8/23/14)

  27. Flex Light is the way to go! Review by Toca
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I went with the Cool White Flex Light. I'm SUPER glad I got the Flex Light since it's waaaaaaaay better than the stock lights. I didn't want to make any crazy modification to the car that I feel would ruin the car's stock feel, so I was hesitant to get the Flex Light. Little did I know, the Flex Light isn't really intrusive at all. You just unplug the stock bulb, fit the Llex Light connector in, and mount the Flex Light wherever you want. There is a sticky adhesive in the back of the Flex Light where you can mount this anywhere...and it removes itself easily (good and bad thing) so if you don't like where it currently sits, you can move it elsewhere. It won't damage the car in any way (e.g. the adhesive won't remove the car's paint or any other parts). Diode Dynamics posted my picture of this so you can see how nice it looks and how it fits.

    I like the Flex Light because it's a long strip of light that is equally concentrated everywhere and is CENTERED in the middle of the trunk, as opposed to the other lights which are off to the side -- I didn't like those. When I have stuff in the trunk, I can see all areas of the trunk very well and it's very pleasant to the eyes. Out of all the LED mods I've done, the Flex Light is by far my favorite. I can't recommend this enough! (Posted on 8/17/14)

  28. FlexLight is a must have! Review by Doug
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    The FlexLight is a great and must have upgrade to the BRZ/FR-S/GT86. It plugs directly into your existing bulb fixture and can be mounted to the ceiling of your trunk, giving a nice bright, white light illuminating the whole trunk.

    The only thing I would recommend is to use liquid nails or some stronger adhesive than what is provided, for a more secure, permanent attachment.

    The LEDs and strip are of extremely high quality, covered in a clear coating for protection. The absolute best option and you can't beat the price. (Posted on 8/8/14)

    I am pretty happy with my trunk light purchase. I ordered the SMD5 cool white bulb but the output was just a little dimmer than what I would have liked. With the SMD5, it's only adequate in complete darkness, otherwise if any other ambient lights are on and facing your direction you will be slightly dissappointed, I wish I would have spent an extra 8 bucks and gotten the SMD12 (Posted on 7/22/14)
