LED Switchbacks, the revolution of turn signals has begun!

Driving safety is the number one concern when operating a motor vehicle.  Whether your vehicle is a car, truck, SUV, motorcycle, or RV, you always have to consider safety.  One factor that may also affect your driving safety is how your vehicle signals when you are about to perform a turn.  With how innovative automotive LED technology has become, we now have the ability to improve how your turn signal functions so that other drivers can have a distinct view when you are approaching and/or about to signal, to alert them, that you are about to turn.

JDM ASTAR offers LED switchback turn signal bulbs for almost any automotive vehicle.  An LED switchback bulb is a dual-filament LED lamp that supports two different colors of light for each filament.  The colors that the switchback bulbs support are amber, and xenon white.  A traditional incandescent or halogen turn signal bulb, usually, supports two filaments which are; low intensity(parking lights and/or daytime running lights) and high intensity(turn signals and sometimes parking lights).  Some may also only support a single high intensity filament.  High intensity means the brightness of the lamp has a higher light output.  Low intensity will lower the light output.  Your switchback bulb works very similarly but instead of “dimming” the second filament to give you a low intensity light, it will actually support a white colored light that measures at a color temperature from 5,800K-6,500K.  The high intensity filament will appear in a bright amber color.  The white color activate as soon as your vehicle begins to utilize the second low intensity filament.  How your vehicle utilizes both the high and low intensity filament, with the factory bulb, will give you an idea of how our switchback LED bulbs will function with car.  For most vehicles, you will have a white color for your parking lights or daytime running lights, and will switch to an amber color once a turn signal is engaged.  After the turn is finished and the signal turns off, the amber light “switches back” to a xenon white color.  The switchback bulbs will not flash “white-amber-white-amber” like you see with a lot of ‘knock-off’ LED bulbs that everybody tries to avoid.  They will flash like your original halogen bulbs and only in amber color.

We offer LED switchback bulbs in a several different sizes from an old style dual filament size like 1157 as well as the latest sizes like 7443(T20), and 3157(T25).  They are also available in different chip sets from our AX2835, EX, and PX to our 3030 chip set so that you will have multiple options in light output.  Certain LED switchback bulbs like our PX, and 3030 series, will even support a non-polarity feature so that they will function with sockets that are equipped with a standard or CK/SRCK configuration!

With most vehicles, if you utilize our switchback bulb, you will have the ability to use a white light for your parking lights, and an amber color for your turn signals.  Having this feature together with your turn signals will ensure that other drivers, in front of you, will have a much easier time noticing you, coming up from behind.  The fact that the parking lights are white and switch to amber will also make you that much more noticeable and thus improve driving safety. So next time you need to replace a turn signal bulb, do not just switch the bulb for a bright LED bulb, “switchback” to a revolution of LED turn signals.

Changing the game in back up lights!

 

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. 921 GX 3020.jpg

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 (W) 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.

3030 Series coming to a turn signal near you. . . .

Have you ever purchased a set of LED bulbs to upgrade any application in your vehicle?  You went for the biggest, ‘baddest’, and brightest LED light available and got amazing results, but you also only got a few days of life out of it.  Either your bulb is dimming, flickering, or some diodes are not lighting properly.  Whatever the case, the issue could have been due lack of proper heat dissipation since LED is prone to failure at high temperatures.  Look no further because JDM ASTAR just released a new product that not only offers performance results, but endurance!

Our latest addition to our LED lineup is our 3030 series.  Our 3030 series is capable of producing up to 1500 raw lumens per lamp at a color temperature for 6,000 kelvin for a highly visible, xenon white look.  They are also available in other colors like amber, and even a switchback version for the car enthusiasts!  It features a glass lens projector to help concentrate light towards the lens of the housing assembly.  This will, not only improve your driving experience, and safety, but will also give your vehicle the elegance it deserves.

The body of the bulb is made with an aircraft grade aluminum and has been redesigned to increase rate of heat dissipation.  The 3030 light emitting diodes are mounted on to an aluminum board, which is connected directly to the body of the bulb.  This will push the rate of dissipation even further by up to fifteen percent!  The built-in IC ‘constant-current’ driver also plays a role in maintaining temperature since it regulates wattage to each diode and ensures the proper amount power for high efficiency and stability. This will allow your bulb to run cooler for longer periods of time, without a worry of causing any heat stress to the diodes.  This will, in turn, provide a longer life span than a standard LED bulb without a cooling method.

The unparalleled design on our 3030 model also makes this LED bulb suitable for turn signal sockets that have a different configuration.  The non-polarity feature allows this bulb to function properly with sockets that have a CK/SRCK or standard configuration.  You will be able to upgrade your turn signal application without a worry of blowing fuse, or the hassle of testing the sockets, with a multimeter, that you probably do not have.

With how the 3030 series is designed, it makes this LED bulb suitable for a variety of lighting applications.  They are available in different bulb sizes ( 3157,4157NA,7443, 7444NA,1157,7528,etc.),  color, and are designed to replace stock halogen bulbs(20W-27W) for your fog lights, turn signals, back-up lights, brake and tail lights, daytime running lights and even parking lights.  Visit Here for more information on our 3030 series, and remember, time is money!  Invest your time properly and save money on a set that will provide longevity and performance.  Think endurance, think brilliance, think 3030. . . .coming to a turn signal near you!

8th Gen LED headlights. . . the next big thing!

LED technology has a come a long way from when it was first introduced into the automotive industry.  There were quite a few known issues when upgrading a headlamp, or even a turn signal.  One of the most dreadful issues were the light patterns on your headlamps.  You go out of your way, and spend “an arm and a leg” on a set of aftermarket LED headlights only to realize that your 55W halogen bulb seemed to give you much better results in terms of lighting and pattern.  Whether you are blind other drivers, or if you have dark spots with your headlights, it is just not safe to use while operating your vehicle.  Well, look no further because the next big thing has just made its way into the automotive industry.
