Diode Dynamics LED Trunk Light - 2002-2017 Explorer

  • $14.00

FUNCTION

Trunk lights are used in the trunk or cargo area to illuminate the space at night. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescant, lighting up in a yellowish color.

By changing the factory bulb to an LED, you can illuminate the area with a much brighter light, and add a pure white, luxury look.

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

 

BULB DESIGN

SMD12 Board: Also an LED panel, with 12 SMD chips. Due to the increased size, this may need to be mounted to the exterior of the trunk light housing.

FlexLight: This is a 20-inch, low-profile LED strip, with 30 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, with adapters for universal installation. Mounts in your trunk area, flexible and waterproof, for maximum brightness.

PLEASE NOTE: SMD12 Board is an LED board, which may mount to the exterior of your trunk light housing. FlexLight is an LED strip, which plugs into your factory trunk light socket, and mounts directly into your trunk area using included adhesive strips or velcro. We offer the Boards and FlexLight for those who want to maximize brightness.

Included in your order is ONE BULB.

 

COLOR

These LEDs are available in crisp, bright colors including White, Warm White, Blue, Red, Amber, and Green.

 We strongly recommend white or warm white for the best visibility.

BRIGHTNESS

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:

SMD12 Board: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
FlexLight: Extremely bright compared to OEM bulb.

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.

 

QUALITY

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 contact Diode Dynamics.
