Yes, why not? Ordinary standard bulbs are also white I see no reason why someone should need to double-red the light? Besides, it will result in poor efficiency and You will be loosing some lumen. It means that white LEDs by default will shine brighter than red LEDs through that red glass.so you got white leds in a red lense? why not red leds in a red lense?
Better check the regulations in Your country/state what they say about red license plate lights. In Europe there's a strict rule to have only white bulbs there. Sometimes even LED's (which are more blue than white spectrum) are not allowed.does it matter if plate shines in red?
That's correct! That's the reason! 800LM is not enough for normal night driving. This LED has Lo and Hi beam. That's also correct. You can even switch to Lo and Hi beam as normal bulb, but the Hi beam is not getting brighter as 800LM Yes, I'm sure, it's not good for DOT or even European standards. I use it only as a daytime light, because I ride only in daytime. If I would need to drive at night, I would swap the bulb backok wait, I just saw this, it says the Lumen is 800LM, is that a misprint? shouldn't that be like much higher for legal DOT approved?
Of course I care! But those SMD LEDs are bright enough. Same as ordinary incandescent bulbs. Even brighter when it comes to license plate.So you don't care if you get hit in the rear because someone couldn't see you, just as long as you don't use TOO much power for that rear light??
