This 12vDC 3157 RED LED wedge bulb uses 55 of the latest 2835 LED from Samsung.
50 of the LED are around the sides of the bulb to maximise reflector light spread.
A front lens is used (with 5 x LED) to fill the middle of the brake light cover.
Headlights off – Brake application triggers full power.

It is best to use Red bulbs behind Red lenses?
This question is asked more than any other with regard to brakelights.
Turns out that Red light passes unfiltered through a Red lens whereas White light must be filtered and therefore loses strength.
You will notice it more at night with Red LED bulbs, the colour is much much richer Red than other vehicles with incandescent bulbs.
