The Diode Dynamics LED upgrade for your
2010-2013 Chevy Camaro Fog Lights
Fog Light LED bulbs are an excellent way to improve the appearance of
your vehicle. From the factory, most vehicles come with halogen bulbs,
which project in a yellowish light. By replacing them with LEDs, you can
create a modern appearance with the cool white light of LEDs.
The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb!
Please note: Fog Light LEDs are primarily for cosmetic upgrade. Some
models may not provide an increase in output.
bulb is designed with 48 Epistar 3014 LED chips. Thanks to the cap on
the top, the light from this High Power Bulb is shined backwards and
away from the bulb, not straight out. This means the output is
excellent, because it uses the vehicle's housing completely, which then
shines the light much more uniformly.
side-firing 1.5W-rated Osram LED chips, and one 1.5W-rated chip on top.
The bulb is housed in a machined aluminum casing, which provides
superior heat diffusion for long life.
of the four sides of this bulb contains three 5W-rated chips, and the
top is fitted with four more, under a projector lens. This is the
brightest self-contained automotive LED bulb on the market, and is
housed in an aluminum casing with a textured finish for maximum

Fully waterproof, non-polar, modular design.
HP, and XP bulbs use an inject-molded terminal, with a full-size base
connector, designed for exact replacement of your factory bulb. The XML2
bulb fits in the same way, but also requires an additional 2" of
clearance behind the bulb socket- see pictures.

HP48: 265 lumens. Slightly
lower brightness than factory.
HP8: 270 lumens. Slightly
lower brightness than factory.
XP80: 510 lumens. Similar
brightness to factory.
XML2: 1410 lumens. Much
brighter than factory. These are bright!
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.
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.
