BULB DESIGN

HP11: Four side-firing 1.5W-rated Osram LED chips, and one 5W-rated LED chip on top, which is projected by a lens for maximum effective brightness. The bulb is housed in a machined aluminum casing, which provides superior heat diffusion for long life.

XP80: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with four more under a projector lens. This is the brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 3156 terminal, with a locking base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 3156 bulb.

Included in your order is ONE BULBS.


COLOR

These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum 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: 

SMD27: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
HP11: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
XP80: 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 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.

    First of all, every single thing you get from DD is going to be top-notch. This light is no exception. Installation takes about 30 seconds start to finish and the difference is significant. I could immediately see a difference behind me through my backup camera. The LED gives it that touch of class to match the taillights. As time and budget allows, I am going to switch my entire S550 to 100% DD LED lights. They are simply the best. (Posted on 12/1/15)

    I bought my wife a 2015 Mustang and the first mods were by far the easiest. They were changing ALL the lights to LED. It looks like a totally different car. Thanks again to Diode Dynamics. I found that there were other vendors for the lights but, Diode Dynamics is by far the best in quality, price and service. You can't go wrong by using this company. They look so good I'm going to do the same to my 16 yr olds Accord we gave him. (Posted on 10/3/15)

  25. Not seeing an improvement Review by Bmorreng
    Value
    Quality
    Price

    Well I was disappointed with this one. I bought the switchback front lamps, trunk light and interior reading lights and think they are all great and well worth the money.

    For the reverse lights I went with the XP80 because I wanted the brightest light possible. To be honest I am not seeing a difference between it and the stock light. I will upload before and after pictures and it appears the stock light lights the area behind the car better. I do have street lights around so maybe I need to go somewhere darker but right not I can say this was worth the money.

    But I 100% recommend the other lights. Will update review when I get this out in the country where it is darker.

    I will say the LED light is more visible, so cars approaching you in reverse will see you better (i.e. backing out of a parking spot). (Posted on 8/6/15)

    The XP80 compared to the stock bulb is like...well, it's like night and day! The install was by far the easiest out of all the Diode Dynamic light conversions I've done on my vehicle. Took me less than a minute. The first time I put my Stang in reverse at night with the new XP80, the picture in the backup camera looked like another vehicle was shining their HEADLIGHTS on the ground behind me. What an improvement! Plus, like everyone else has said...any driver behind you will definitely know you are backing up. (Posted on 5/10/15)

    In Houston...traffic is dangerous at best...parking is tight...and driver's are always in a rush...so I purchased the XP80 LED from Diode Dynamics to be more visible to other driver's...

    It's an expensive bulb...but well worth the money! (They offer free shipping to forum members)...

    Extremely bright...for safety...I wanted other driver's to know I was backing up...and now they can't miss the single low mounted backup light...it will certainly get their attention!

    It also gives the backup camera better resolution...

    I'm very pleased with the purchase! (Posted on 3/21/15)

    I installed the XP80 LED bulb and it makes backing up a breeze. The other thing that I noticed is that the backup light really shows during the day and this is important to me since most vehicles do not have a backup light so low and people can see that you are backing up. I would highly recommend the XP80 to everyone. It just fits in so well with the LED tail lights and license plate lights. (Posted on 1/27/15)

    Value
    Quality

    While the XP80 doesn't have the nuclear shock-and-awe brightness I was expecting, it provides a very white, very wide, and very clear light. I have much greater confidence backing up, and my (all black) vehicle is easier to notice when the tail lamps are obscured. It is a vast improvement over the standard lamp, which employs a jar of malnourished fireflies rather than the traditional tungsten filament.

    After purchasing my car, I had no hesitance in committing a further $45 to improve the safety of myself and others in its operation. Worth it. (Posted on 12/2/14)

Backup LEDs are a direct replacement. Just change the bulb! You will not need any resistors or other accessories.

Remove your factory bulb

  1. 1. Access your backup bulb. You may need to pull back the trunk/cargo carpet and/or unscrew the visible nuts holding the light in.
  2. 2. Remove the socket from the tail light by twisting counterclockwise.
  3. 3. Remove the factory bulb by unclipping and pulling it out of the socket.

 

Install your new LED bulb

  1. 1. Plug new LED bulb into socket by pushing it into place.
  2. 2. Test the bulb to ensure proper function.
  3. 3. Insert socket back into tail light, and reassemble as necessary. That's it!
