2013 Scion FR-S Backup LEDs (pair)
SMD13: 13 three-chip 5050-size Epistar SMDs. Four radial panels of three chips, and a single forward-facing chip. Main body material is PCB.
HP6: Three side-firing 1.5W-rated Osram LED chips, and one 1.5W-rated Osram chip on top. The bulb is housed in a machined aluminum casing, which provides superior heat diffusion for long life.
XP50: Each of the four sides of this bulb contains two 5W-rated chips, and the top is fitted with two more under a projector lens. Housed in an aluminum casing with textured finish for maximum heatsinking properties.
Fitment. All three bulbs use a quality inject-molded 921 terminal, with a sturdy base connector and proper pin alignment, designed for exact replacement of your factory 921 bulb. You will not need resistors for backup lights. Just replace the factory bulb.
Included in your order is TWO BULBS.
These LEDs illuminate in a crisp, cool, bright, white hue for maximum light output.
At Diode Dynamics, we rate the brightness of LEDs in "stages" so you can choose what fits you best.
SMD13: Slightly lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern instant on/off of LED technology.
HP6: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs.
XP50: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright!
Lumens. 99% of sellers online simply provide "calculated" lumen numbers based on the maximum potential brightness of the bulb. For example, if a bulb has five 10-lumen chips, they will rate it at 50 lumens. However, this is far from accurate, as the design of an LED bulb rarely provides the proper conditions for maximum brightness, once it is all put together. We do not provide calculated numbers, as we believe it is misleading to the consumer. Please reference Diode Dynamics pictures for brightness comparison. We do not currently list lumen brightness ratings for Diode Dynamics products yet- however, we've just purchased the required equipment, and will be posting accurate measurement numbers soon!
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, 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.
