Gister my was se ligte vervang met LED's wat meer sigbaar is vir ander pad verbruikers.

Dit is so gekoppel, indien die LED's onklaar raak tydens die reis tydperk, kan die ou bestaande ligte soos foto 1 net weer in plek gesit word om die reis veilig voort te sit.

Dit word geberg in die nose cone vir nood geval.

Hi DK this looks good and very neat ,I just have some questions:

I assume each strip of 5 LED is 12 VDC?

Are the all the same wattage or are the stop and indicator lights a higher wattage.?

What make are they and where did you purchase them and cost .

I believe some vehicles dont "see" the LED lights ,what vehicle do you have?

Thanks for the info in advance as I intend to do someting similar to my van ,presently it has the same lights as those you have removed.

Ek sien die komplement ronde LED agterligte is nou te koop vir so min as R75. Nie lank terug was hulle R350.

I drive a  2011 Nissan X-Trail, dci.

The wattages are the same, but I thinking of to fit another extra one for each stoplight, although my stoplights are seperate from taillights and therefore they are visible when apply brakes, but for extra brightness, I will fit an extra one to each stoplight.

I do not know the brand as I bought them from a China shop for R15/piece.

Due to purchase them from a China shop, I decided to wire it in such a way, when a failure might occur, I just slide the old ones in place.

I was uncertain if this will work, that is why I 1st went for a cheapie.

Now that this is working, I can now invest in a name brand, which will last longer.

Dennis luckily these LEDS work in a set of 3. There are thus 2 sets of 3 in series and should one set fail the 2nd set will still be working so you could have time before the whole light is out of order in order to replace.

At R15 a piece one can replace as I doubt you will get the good brand names.

I have used the following similar type and found them working well but have not tested in a vibration environment. Each light is about 1.5W in my case.

These are also made up of a few LEDs and do not fail all at the same time. They do tend to run hot at up to 70 degrees so it is worthwhile mounting on a piece of aluminium.

I have fitted 2 of these as a boot light in the place of the normal filament bulb and they are actually too bright.

Danie, waar is hulle verkrybaar?

Ek wil nog by ACDC ook gaan kyk wat om die hoek van my werk is.

Dennis hier by ons China Mall. Jy kry ook 'n skerp ronde tipe wat op dieselfde reghoekige plastiek vas is en baie skerp is. Kos ook omtrent R20. Het hulle nog nie probeer nie. Ek het ook 3x die regfhoekige tipe in 'n ou 10W LED spot ingebou wat nou te lekker op 12V werk. Jy weet daai 10W spots kos mos maar onder R100 en hou nooit lank nie. Hier by ons kan mens selfs die 20W spots kry vir R120. Mens gee dus nie om as dit binne maande ingee want dan sit mens net hierdie tipe van reghoek tipe in vir 'n gloeilamp.

Baie slim plan die. Dit gee ook die versekering dat daar altyd 'n lig sal wees.  Anders as in die gewone gloeilamp. As die blaas is dit donker agter jou.

Ek wil meer lig agter he as ek met die Ranger terugstoot.  Gaan sommer van die koop en saam op die wit tru lig van die Tipper koppel.
