The Diode Dynamics LED Vanity light for
2015+ Ford Mustang
Vanity lights, or the lights which illuminate the vanity mirror on your
vehicle under the sun visor, use incandescent bulbs from the factory,
giving them a yellowish color. By replacing these factory bulbs with
LEDs, you can add a luxurious and modern look to your vehicle, with a
cool white color, just like newer luxury vehicles. Sometimes a warm
color is still desired with the mirror, in which case you can still
upgrade brightness while using warm white LEDs.
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!
bulb has a standard festoon base, with a single 5050-size Epistar SMD.
Direct replacement, plug and play.
your order is FOUR BULBS.
Bulb appearance may vary depending on which LED reverse bulb you choose.
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

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.
lower brightness than OEM bulbs, but still provides the crisp, modern
color of LED.
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
Diode Dynamics bulbs are produced with modern, computerized equipment,
and only the best materials, to ensure complete uniformity, high
quality, and long bulb life.
