Cool product but I'm not really jiving with the plastic lens that is then permanently attached to the back of your car . I wonder how the coverage would be if 3 LEDs were each mounted in my stock back-up light position instead of the six in that band .

It is just 6 Cree XRE's. There is really nothing special about the set up other than there being a plastic lens to make it water tight. Hopefully they were smart enough to give it at least some metal to dissipate heat on and made the circuit to be current regulated.


I use 48 Cree XRE's to light my room.

I bought two 55 watt halogen bulbs that go in my backup lights .... Galls sells them for police cruisers...Those are bright but I've been cautious to not leave them on too long for fear of melting the plastic lenses

I've done a somewhat similar mod on my Element. I replaced the weak ass factory 18 watt 921 bulbs for 38 watt 894 halogen fog light bulbs. I had to cut/remove the plastic base to get to the metal tangs,so I could bend/fold them over to fit in my sockets.I could of went with 55 watt fog light bulbs,but since my E' has a pretty decent reverse reflector,I felt it wasn't needed.The bulb upgrade made quite a huge improvement in light output. icon_cool.gif

^^Oh and since I also had installed a reverse camera with infrared l.e.d.s I really have no problem seeing what's actually behind my vehicle. icon_cool.gif

I think that is the WORST solder job of a surface mount LED that I have ever seen!
