5.0 out of 5 stars Bright, clean white light, August 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bright, clean light. You can turn the flat panel to sort of aim the light, which was very useful to me so I could get more light in a certain area. I'd recommend these.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bright and easy to install, August 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are BRIGHT! It's hard to describe how much brighter they are than stock. I wanted to tint my tail lights but not lose output, so I got these. The end result is these are still brighter in a tinted tail light than a normal bulb was in the untinted lights.

You will need to add a resistor as with most LEDs. I picked up a pair of 20 ohm resistors here for $6.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crazy bright!, August 3, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are an easy plug-in to get a LOT more output from your reverse lights or any other white light (not amber or red, you should use matching bulbs for those). The extra brightness is hard to describe.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very bright, look good, July 25, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are pretty nice. They are very bright, and a clean white color. The only reason I didn't give them five stars is that the wires are VERY thin so it's hard to deal with them in crimp connectors. I had to fold the wire end four times to build up enough thickness for the crimps to hold.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible light pattern, no wiring diagram, missing wiring, July 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I sent these back for a variety of reasons, and wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

1. The beam pattern, if you can call it that, is ridiculous. There's a huge bright square in the center, which is basically just a projection of the LED chip itself. Then there's a semi-horizontal cutoff line that is kind of chaotic and ill-formed. Plus it goes up on the left side, which is the opposite of what you want. You want the left lower so it doesn't blind oncoming traffic. The light pattern was just a bad joke.

2. The wiring harnesses shown are NOT all included. The halo ring wires are extremely short, no wiring harness for them. The yellow color didn't work at all on the halo (the color I bought these for, because my Jeep is copper colored).

3. No instructions or wiring diagram of any kind was included. I just had to test with a battery and jumpers to see what wires did what. Perhaps there's a trick I missed to making the yellow halo work. Without info, I had to just use my best judgement.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made and easy to install, July 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very nicely made box and pretty easy to install. The metal is quite tough and the locking area has multiple reinforcements. Looks like it would take some time to break into. Installation is easy, taking maybe 15 minutes at most including getting a couple tools ready.

Pretty nice padding and slip prevention for any bag that doesn't come with a shoulder pad. Looks pretty decent, and provides good effective padding.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good, July 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a simple, pretty good dock for the watch and phone. The phone part doesn't dock, so it's not ultra convenient, but you just have to pull the cord through the hole and connect it when you dock the phone. I'm going to see if I can make it more like a true dock for more convenience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive and nice quality, looks good, July 1, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really nice band, and the price is excellent. Seems to be on par with the much more expensive options I've seen. The look of the band is simple, lightly textured leather. A nice clean look. The attachment points are polished metal and slide into the watch easier than the Apple rubber watch band. The clasp is also polished metal, nothing fancy, effective and easy to put on/take off. A nice deal.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the extra cost, May 6, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Worth the extra cost. I ship a lot for an individual, and was buying some cheap junky tape before. It was unreliable even just getting it to feed from the tape gun. This costs more, but I never have any issue.
