Couldnt for the life of me come up with the power consumption of these LED bulbs, i see 50W but took that as the "equivalent" in power not the actual power draw to light them up. Do these really draw as much power as a 50W Halogen?


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 can’t 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.

Do you still have the Brand and part number for the H3 LED bulbs you put in your driving lights?
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’ve looked at these, but my Honda lights don’t look deep enough to hold them.

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.
