FUNCTION

LED Board SMD12 is a direct replacement for any 194 size halogen bulb, or any festoon application. A number of adapters are included with the board so that you can choose the festoon size or 194 base size.

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

This LED board has 12 SMD chips, arranged in a 4x3 matrix on a board with an adhesive backing. The board is 31mm by 45mm in dimension (1.25"x1.75"), so please make sure it will fit in your vehicle.

A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the board from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the board from reverse polarity. The board is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is ONE BOARD.


COLOR

These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including Cool White, Warm White, Blue, Red, Amber, and Green.

 We strongly recommend cool white or warm white for the best visibility.

BRIGHTNESS 

118 Lumens

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 our 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 of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year warranty. For more information, please view the FAQ guide.

    Quality

    As indicated by others, the brightness is no joke. The whole cabin is bathed in light; stock halogen doesn't even compare. Even with a non-white color, everything is visible. Festoon adapter and installation is a literal snap. (Posted on 6/18/16)

    Quality

    I am very pleased with this fine product. It was a very simple installation which took less than five minutes. It made a tremendous difference in the amount of light in my trunk an since the factory lens fits perfectly over the board, it looks like it came with the car...which it should have. I certainly recommend this fine product to anyone. It solved a problem that should not have existed in the first place. (Posted on 6/5/16)

    I ordered this for my trunk light in my 2008 Ford Mustang GT. I was so excited when it finally arrived. When I installed it, it did not work. I flipped it around like instructed to in the instructions, still did not work. I called the customer service line and they shipped me out a new one. After receiving the new one, I tried the same thing and encountered the same problem. I called customer service again and they shipped me out yet another board. That one just came in and I installed it and it works!! I am so excited that it works finally, although like the disclaimer does say you will have to attach it to the outside of light housing. I made a simple cut in the plastic to give the wires a place to rest as to not pinch when reinstalling it. It is extremely bright and works great, I am finally a satisfied customer :-) (Posted on 6/3/16)

  4. LED Board SMD12 for trunk light 2014 Ford Fusion Review by Marty
    Price
    Value
    Quality

    Folks,
    I used the SMD12 board to brighten up my trunk in a 2014 Fusion. The entire trunk is lined with black carpet which just absorbs light! The stock lighting is a single 194 incandescent spade/wedge bulb. To make matters worse, the light is off centered in the trunk. I replaced the 194 with the DD SMD12 LED board and what a difference! The install was simple, the price is nice and the folks at Diode Dynamics were great. The SMD12 also comes with adaptors for spade/wedge and festoon installations. Fast shipping no hassles. The only bad thing about Diode Dynamics is now I "have to" order bulbs for all seven cars I maintain! I am a total LED convert. Check the pictures I uploaded. Both pictures are without flash. The first shows the trunk with the stock bulb, the second photo shows the 12 LED panel. I placed the flashlight in the middle of the trunk so one had some frame of reference. No comparison.

    I've had my Toyota Camry one year now and could never see anything in the trunk at night. It came with an extremely dim (I think one candle power, ha) #194 bulb. I just replaced it with the LED Board SMD12. What a world of a difference! Great light, great. (Posted on 12/2/14)

  9. THE SUN Review by Struck
    Quality

    Is that the sun shinning from within? Nope, its the 12 super bright LEDs from this board illuminating every nook and cranny of my vehicle.
    Even with the amazing output, it still consumes very little power. This dome light was left on by accident for two days. Although the housing was very hot, the car turned on normally, without hesitation. Had it been a regular bulb, I would have probably been late for work. (Posted on 10/24/14)
