3157 XP80 is a direct replacement for any 3157-size incandescent bulb. This is one of the brightest bulbs we carry, as a clear improvement over halogen lighting.
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb. The bulb may blink faster since it uses less power, and your vehicle thinks the bulb is out- to fix this, please see "hyperblinking" section below.
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.
Included in your order is TWO BULBS.
These LEDs are available in a crisp, bright, white, amber or red color.
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 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.
The turn signals on most vehicles will begin to blink fast (hyperblink) when LED bulbs are installed. This is because the new LEDs will use less power than the original bulbs, so your vehicle thinks that the bulb is out and warns you by hyperblinking.
This phenomenon will be the same for every LED bulb on the market- there is no such thing as a "no hyperblink" LED bulb, even though some companies advertise them as such.
Flasher Replacement: Replacing the flasher relay, the module that controls blinking speed, is the easiest option to correct hyperblinking. You can remove the flasher on your vehicle, which is a small relay module under the dash, and replace it with a new flasher designed for LEDs. You will only need one flasher for your vehicle, whether you are replacing just one pair or both sets of turn signal bulbs (front/rear).
Resistor Kit: If you prefer not to change the flasher, you can add resistors to the bulb's circuit, and mimic the power consumption of the original bulb, returning the vehicle to normal turn signal speed. Resistors are a universal fix for any vehicle. Our resistors are 50w, 6 ohm, and come with extra-long connection wires for easy install. If you have both front and rear LED turn signals, you should purchase one set for each pair, to create enough resistance for the whole turn signal circuit. The installation itself takes only 10-15 minutes, and involves making two simple connections. Everything you need is included in the kit.

I purchased a pair of XP80's to replace the OEM backup lights on my 2011 Charger. Man did these things make a world of difference! I get asked all the time where I got them. I always refer them to Diode Dynamics! (Posted on 4/5/16)
Really Good LED Bulb Review by Rich

Bought these for my Jeep back lights. Made a huge difference in light output, so much brighter than stock. These are simple to install, and you won't be disappointed.
Thinking about a set for the break lights. (Posted on 3/12/16)

Absolutely love the new look on my ride! I installed today my DD red 3157 turn signals only thing i need is to install my resistors which are on their way. I forgot to order resistors the first time haha. But i am very pleased with the way they look! Thanks again diode dynamics for another quality product for my ride! (Posted on 6/24/15)
Very bright! Review by Ricka

I have dark tinted taillights, and I got sick of having people tell me my lights were out...They weren't out, but the light didn't shine through enough. So I replaced them with XP80's, and they make all the difference! Even in direct sunlight, I can still see the light coming through the tint! These are by-far, the brightest LED 3157's I have seen, and I tried 2 other well-known vendors, and also a couple Ebay/Amazon stores. None were this good! I will be buying more XP80s to replace all the lights in the back. (Posted on 2/27/15)
Excellent LED assemblies Review by Jeff Gray

I ordered these as I had tinted my tail lights and wanted LED "Crispness" while penetrating the tint. These did it! Love them. They are bright!
The customer service is excellent as well! (Posted on 10/27/14)
Fantastic Product! Review by Jim Z

I replaced the standard bulbs in my tail lights with these. The tail light housings on my F-150 didn't put out the amount of light that I wanted, even with some of the brightest standard bulbs that I could purchase. I ordered a set of these bulbs and am amazed by how much more visible my lights are. I feel safer with these bulbs. (Posted on 10/12/14)
Simply the Best !!! Review by Bryant

I purchased the RED XP80's, I can tell you this... don't waste your time looking anywhere else, this is what you want and well worth the money. You get what you pay for. American made with pride, I have been in search of quality led's for quite a while and I'm telling you they are the best. The tail light to brake light brightness differential is mind blowing compared to the cheaply made jap knock off's out there. I will post pics soon. You will not regret this purchase I promise.

Awesome product for the money. I am very impressed by the quality of the bulb. The light output is also fantastic. Cant wait to get a white set for my reverse lights. (Posted on 5/25/14)
Tail light LEDs are a direct replacement. Just change the bulb! You will not need any resistors or other accessories.
Remove your factory bulb
- 1. Access your tail light bulb. You may need to pull back the trunk/cargo carpet and/or unscrew the visible nuts holding the light in.
- 2. Remove the socket from the tail light by twisting counterclockwise.
- 3. Remove the factory bulb by unclipping and pulling it out of the socket.
Install your new LED bulb
- 1. Plug new LED bulb into socket by pushing it in place.
- 2. Test the bulb to ensure proper function. The bulb should come on half brightness for parking lights, and full brightness for brake. If it does not, try removing the bulb, rotating it, and reinstalling.
- 3. Insert socket back into tail light, and reassemble as necessary. That's it!
