Fog Light LED bulbs are an excellent way to improve the appearance of your vehicle. From the factory, most vehicles come with halogen bulbs, which project in a yellowish light. By replacing them with LEDs, you can create a modern appearance with the cool white light of LEDs.

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

Please note: Fog Light LEDs are primarily for cosmetic upgrade and do not provide a significant increase in light output.


HP36Full 360 degree illumination with 36 High-Power Samsung LEDs. Aluminum base for optimum heatsinking, and non-polar design for easy installation.

Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 881 terminal, with a full-size base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 881 bulb.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS.


These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, bright, cool white hue.


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:

HP36: 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.



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.

  1. Great clear LED, with super simple installation Review by Ken

    After going through 2 regular bulbs on each side in 4 years, I decided to try something new. These went in super easy to '12 Forte Koup SX without any extra work and give off a nice clear glow. Definitely brighter than the stock bulb. Now I'm debating upping my headlights to match. I've only had them in for about a month, but so far I love them. (Posted on 8/27/15)

  2. These things look great! Review by JWeezey

    They are very bright, the look amazing and was a great great buy. (Posted on 7/26/13)

  3. Great product, great company Review by Daniel

    Product came just as descried. I ordered the 6000k stage 1. The brightness was accurate (slightly less than OEM) but still worth $30 since fog lights for me are more for esthetic purposes. Very happy with order and will be using DD more often! (Posted on 2/5/13)

  4. DiodeDynamics delivers again! Review by Justin

    Okay. I'll be honest, this review is just as much about D.D. as their products. I purchased the high-power yellow LED fogs. While I was pleased with them, I eventually opted to go another route and gave them to a friend 6 months later. THIS is the best part. My friend had an issue during install, the plastic surrounding one of the bulbs broke! I contacted D.D. and with no questions asked, they immediately got on it and sent him a new bulb, completely free of charge! They even included a 10% discount card! Talk about customer service! They really stand behind their products! (Posted on 9/14/12)

  5. Easy install with a twist Review by Ben

    I bought these as I was tired of my fog lights not matching my HID's. When I got the bulbs, I installed and attempted to turn them on but neither bulb would light up. Got with Paul and he was very prompt in his response. Basically, the polarity was reversed. He said he would post a video soon for a how to on swapping the polarity. I got around this little problem by simply using a dremel tool to cut out the alignment notch in the bulb connection housing. Once I did that and flipped the connection everything worked great. The only thing I noticed, and this apparently is with all LED's, is that the color doesn't quite match a 6000k HID set. This is mostly a brightness issue so I'm not worried about it, but be aware that your white LED's, even the 7.5 High Power ones, come out looking a little blue. (Posted on 8/26/12)
