FUNCTION

Vanity lights, or the lights which illuminate the vanity mirror on your vehicle under the sun visor, 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 newer luxury vehicles. Sometimes a warm color is still desired with the mirror, in which case you can still upgrade brightness while using warm white LEDs.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SMF1: This bulb has a standard 28mm fuse-style base, with a single 5050-size Epistar SMD. Direct replacement, plug and play.

SMF2: Standard 28mm fuse-style base, with two 5050-size Epistar SMDs. Direct replacement, plug and play.

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:

SMF1: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern color of LED.
SMF2: 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.

    I got the SMF2 for my vanity mirrors in my BRZ. It looks great and actually useful, unlike the OEM bulbs. The SMF2 is really bright, so be careful if you're worried about it being too distracting. Not a knock on the product, it's great, just that it might be too bright for some people (Posted on 10/11/16)

    I got a pair of SMF2's in Cool White because frankly, the oem amber vanity lights are useless. These replacements are amazingly bright, almost TOO bright is you happen to stare directly into them (Don't do that). But they are excellent for actually seeing yourself while you're poking whatever, and for that I'm quite pleased. (Posted on 3/19/16)

    Bought the SMF1 and it is very bright! Easy to install, took 2 minutes to do both of them. MUCH brighter than stock, I don't recommend you get anything brighter than this because they will blind you! Definitely a worthwhile upgrade! (Posted on 8/12/15)

    I bought SMF2 cool white. These lights are bright. Perfect for daytime but a bit to bright for my copilot at nighttime. Quality bulb, it shows you get what you pay for. Good product but I might order the SMF1's in a little bit. (Posted on 5/14/15)

    These visor lights are eye openers. went with cool white, to match my other led installs. After my previous experiences at Diode Dynamics, I knew that these lights wouldn't let me down. The stage one is plenty bright enough to read by and angle down to the floorboard to see something small you may have dropped. This car looks so much better with DD led upgrades. (Posted on 2/6/15)

  11. Bright...Really Bright Review by Zaneman
    Price

    Quality

    So in my other reviews I mentioned how glad I was I didn't go with the brightest option. This time I did. The SMF2 in cool white is crazy bright. These things could take the place of the dome light with both visors open. The light they produce is crisp but a little too much in my opinion. I did find a good use for them though. I sometimes forget to turn my dome light off after parking my car. Now I leave it off and open a visor if I'm messing around after I shut the car off for the night. (Posted on 12/16/14)

    I recommend the SMF1 for anyone interested. Going with the cool white all around and chose the stage one. The cool white gives an updated look but, I think I'd even be happy with the soft white. Absolutely better than stock. It's a vanity light so you don't want to blind yourself with anything brighter than this. (Posted on 9/18/14)

    These LED Vanity lights are perfect to enhance the lighting in your sun visors. With the OEM bulbs, you were barely able to see what was going on in the mirror while it was dark, but with the new LED bulbs, you can see everything. They are simple to install and all you have to do is pop off the cover and replace the fuse type bulb with the new LED one. You can't go wrong with this set. The cool white ones are perfect.

    The vanity lights go great to clean up the lighting from the yellowish stock bulbs. I will say that the lowest brightness works just fine and may be preferable in this location. (Posted on 8/23/14)

    Quality

    Cool White, SMF2. This thing shines really bright, and for vanity lights, it might not be a good thing if you're looking in the mirror with bright lights blinding you. In retrospect, I should have gone with a softer color like Warm White, or Amber even...or maybe turn it down and notch with the SMF1. Overall, I shouldn't complain about the brighter light output...but the light quality and brightness is definitely better than stock and seems to match the car better, and for $6-$10 bucks a pair, you can't go wrong.

  18. Good Product, Just Not The Most Essential Upgrade Review by MikeBRZ
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    I got these lights along with the LED dome light. They were a cinch to install, and they were a major improvement over the stock yellowish lights. I am glad I bought them to match the LED dome light. However, I don't use the vanities nor the visors enough to make them the best purchase. I bought the middle-level brightness LEDs, and they are very bright. If I bought them again, I would go with the lowest level. I am almost blinded by the light when I look at them. I still would recommend this product. (Posted on 6/16/14)

    Beware, girls will not like these. Its so bright and perfect that girls will see their imperfect skins and faces that they will hate you for it. The install is so easy I felt like they were there originally cause I do not remember putting them.

    The stage 2 are bright enough. I use the vanity as a map light since I have a red interior light which is nice. (Posted on 4/25/14)

  28. Must have upgrade Review by Tyler

    Quality
    Price

    At first I didn't think vanity lights really mattered, and couldn't understand why anyone would want LEDs there. When I saw these I was kind of hesitant, but I figured for $6 I would just do it. I picked up the White level 2 LEDs, and immediately they made a difference. It may be a tiny light that doesn't get used much, but when it does need to be used, this light does the trick. The white LEDs do give off a slight blue hue to them, so if you're looking for white, I would try out the warm white color. Very happy with the LEDs. (Posted on 7/13/13)
