How does the tail/brake function work?
The bulb operates at half current in tail light mode and full power once the brake is applied.
Are automotive LED brake bulbs as bright as standard incandescent bulbs?
Our full size 27xSMD LED bulbs equal the brightness of a standard 21w bulb, they're more outstanding at night however than a normal incandescent which will to look orange compared to it.
Should red LED brake lights be used behind red lenses (and amber behind amber)?
Our most often asked question - Yes - Red light will travel through a Red lens without any filtering whatsoever making it very rich in colour.
White light has to travel through a RED lens and be filtered and if the originating White light wasn't a pure White (for example incandescent bulbs with a yellow tinge) you would expect to see a distortion of the pure RED.
The richness of the RED color is particularly noticed at night - you will find that your RED LED brake lights will make the other types look orange.
Of course clear lenses look excellent on your car and RED LED enables you to use them without having to use painted incandescent bulbs
