LED Brake Lights

Recommended Posts

I used to think these were just that having an array of small lights gave some redundancy compared to a single filament giving up. I have now realised that they are a safety feature since the LED will light up faster than a filament bulb and give the following driver more warning that you are stopping. If say there is 0.3 seconds difference in the lighting up time that is about 30ft at 60mph, the diference between a shunt and a scare!

Or you could consider Philips VisionPlus bulbs which they do in single and twin filament. Faster response time and up to 60% brighter. Eg

£6.20 a pair on Amazon currently.

Non LED so no query over whether they would pass MOT.

    1. 1. If you were to consider buying a Hybrid model over 5 years old, would you be worried about the reliability of the Hybrid system?

      • Not really as Hybrid systems are always reliable
      • Not if it had a Manufacturers Warranty on the Hybrid system
      • I would not buy a Hybrid model over 5 years old
