The Diode Dynamics type A Luxeon LED Fog Lamps upgrade your Foglights from incandescent to high-output LEDs.
The LUXEON LED Fog Lamp is an OEM-grade fog lamp housing that utilizes LED technology. It is for select vehicles only, as it replaces the entire factory fog lamp housing. Unlike competing ""LED fog lamps"" these actually are among the brightest possible LED fog lamp options.
With the newest projector optics, the light is directed perfectly at a very wide angle, with a clear cutoff line. These lamps have been tested for SAE compliance, and are DOT and ECE compliant.
The design features projector optics, directing light from genuine Philips Luxeon T LEDs, binned at a 5000K pure white color. With a constant current drive circuit, built-in passive heatsinking, and input power smoothing, the fog lights will work perfectly for years.
The entire housing is weather-sealed, and features a GORE patch to allow for depressurization of the housing when the light heats up and cools down. These design characteristics are all similar to the quality and thought that goes into OEM headlamps, which is why we are proud to call these ""OEM grade.""
Please be aware: there are already many knockoffs of this design on the market. Like any good knockoff, they appear the same, but they always use thinner materials, poor sealing, lower-quality drive circuits, and most noticeably, low-quality offbrand LEDs. Diode Dynamics only uses genuine components in our products, with everything fully tested, to ensure you will receive the highest performance possible.
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory fog lamp assembly!
Two assemblys are INCLUDED.
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.
Light output comes via three Philips Luxeon-T 5000K LED's that produce around 1200 raw lumens per side. The projector based optics then concentrate that output for a total of 2400 lumens of pure white light into a beam that's super wide and perfectly distributed for use as a fog light and the assemblies that house them are SAE, DOT, and ECE approved.
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.
