INSTANT: Beautiful, bright light. Nearly infinite life span. Great for signal, marker, brake, and tail lights. Morimoto’s new X-VF 3157 LED bulbs are an instant upgrade in the looks and performance for the lighting on your car from bumper to bumper.
SO WHAT’S NEW WITH VERSION TWO? Whereas the now discontinued XB bulbs were really only designed to “look cool” and be “bright” – we all know the saying “power is nothing without control” and that was really the focus behind the new X-VF bulbs. They utilize far more refined optics that distribute light in every direction, most notably improving the side and rear-ward spread. What that means for you? By making full use of all the facets in any turn/brake signal housing – They’re way brighter! (and they still look cool!)
MAKE CONTACT: Thin wire contacts? CK? Non CK? All of that is so 2015! To ensure perfect contact at the base of the bulbs, Morimoto has spec’d fat boy (aka wide) contacts – which are much less likely to bend out of the way or break off. In addition, there is now NO NEED to worry whether you have a CK or Non-CK circuit – since the drivers are now universal. We think that in and of itself is an amazing convenience.
PROTECTED: Heat management is crucial for reliability when it comes to LEDs. Using just six LED chips to produce peak output, the X-VF LED generates less heat compared to other bulbs that sometimes use up to 48 chips. The CREE XB-D LEDs are mounted inside the lens, which sits atop a ribbed aluminum heat sink. Inside; an integrated thermal resistor reduces output as a secondary level of protection.
