Reading though the description I found this:

LED Chips: 10 Pieces High performance 5W SMD per LED bulb.

No, I read that as 50. 10 pieces, 5W each. I canít confirm any of this, I have no idea how to measure what the light consumes.

if that's the case that goes over the 35w (x's 2) i am allowing the circuit to handle and i can't afford the LED headlight right now. Thats what saves you then the lower draw headlight i imagine.

So many choices on ebay and dont want to pick an inferior product.

Thanks if you can supply the P/N and brand.
I suggest skipping the H3's and get daymaker driving lights. I have a daymaker headlight, and my Cobra driving lights. They replace the glass, by attaching to the chrome rings, then go into the driving light housings.

Here is an example:

I didn't think they would fit my Cobra light housings either, I was worried. They fit, the lights are very shallow. The specific ones I ordered where the shallowest I could find on Amazon.

You could always order them on Amazon, and return if they don't work.

With my 3 daymakers and my switchback LED's (in the indicator housings) I light up country roads like it is the daytime.
