You have heard it many times, and you will hear it again. “Why do car makers put such dim bulbs in their cars?” Look no further because JDM ASTAR is at it again. We have a huge line up of LED back up lights to help rid of those tedious 15W factory bulbs that emit less light than your smartphones camera light. Yes, we said it. . . .SMARTPHONE CAMERA LIGHT! We have seen back up lights not shine properly to where it makes it difficult, not to mention unsafe, to reverse your vehicle.
JDM ASTAR has just released, yet, another option that will change the game in how you reverse your car. Our latest addition to back up lights is our 921 GX 3020 LED. Most vehicles use this bulb size for back up lights, but for those that use other T20 or T25 wedge sizes, we still have other options that will improve your experience while reversing your car. The 921 GX3020 is changing how light is distributed, and how heat is dissipated. The GX series offers the latest in heat dissipation technology. It features, what we like to call, Cross Heat Dissipation (HD) which is located at the center point of the bulb where temperatures reach the highest. Since LED does not operate well under high temperatures, the Cross HD allows for maximum heat diffusion. This means a steady and cooler temperature to allow over 20,000 hours of life (in 25°C). When the LED bulb is fired up, the center point is where temperature immediately begins to rise and with an integrated Cross HD, you will not have a concern for a heat failure.
The GX 3020 series is also one of the brightest we offer in back up lights with a xenon white color temperature(6000K-6500K). Out of the box, they will emit over 1000 raw lumens per bulb with 13-SMD (surface mount diodes) high power GX-3020 chips. Combined with a 5-sided setup, you will not only have a strong light emission, it will also provide you with proper light distribution. You have to remember, your vehicles housing is built-in around a factory halogen bulb which shines light from practically every side of the bulb so using an LED replacement, such as the GX-3020, will provide similar light distribution for optimal results. So, the lights bright, and works well so nothing new, you might say, but wait . . . . . there is more!
For those that drive motor vehicles that have a very ‘picky’ electrical system and simply rejects the lower power draw of your LEDs, you can still utilize the GX 3020. Like our 921 PX model, our GX series also come equipped with resistors to simulate a larger power draw to allow the bulb to be detected, and therefor making it a, CAN bus ready, or Error Free LED bulb. This means that the power draw will slightly increase so that the vehicles system can detect it and prevent minor malfunctions such as a dimming, or flicker that are caused by the system.
Now that you know a little more about the GX 3020’s, we are not going to tell you to pick up a set for yourself. We believe the 921 GX 3020’s speak for themselves so we invite you to change the world in how drivers back up there motor vehicles.
LED JDM ASTAR light your way on the road!
