Main Characteristics

These bulbs can be used as tail lights in a wide range of vehicles, including Honda, Toyota/Lexus, Kia, Subaru, Chrysler, and VW. The peculiarity of tail light bulbs is that they are brighter than usual brake light bulbs. In addition, due to the larger contact area, 1157R bulbs create more intense and focused light beams.

In general, the nominal power of this bulb is 27/8.3 Watts and 12.8/14 volts. It means that drivers can see your car from a distance of about 1,000 feet. Moreover, such nominal power is perfect for those who want to replace the standard bulbs with more powerful and bright ones without violating the law.

Depending on the bulb, the lumen level can vary quite a bit. As a general guideline, when you're looking to replace a 100-watt incandescent bulb: choose a 1600 lumen light. If you want something dimmer, go for fewer lumens; if brighter is more your style, look for more lumens. So, you can easily calculate that a 27-watt LED will be about 200 lumens, making it the perfect replacement for a 100-watt incandescent light.

When it comes to the life expectancy of a 1157R bulb, it all depends on the manufacturer and the quality of the product. However, on average, these bulbs can last for about 30,000 hours. This is ten times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs!

Will 1157R Fit My Vehicle?

While looking for a new pair of light bulbs, there are some things you will want to double-check. A common question people have is if 1157R is the right fit for their car. If you're unsure, one way to find out is by taking off the old light and checking it for symbols. Thus, the wattage and voltage of your bulb should be written on it. If not, you can take a look in your car's owner manual or do an internet search for your vehicle's make, model, and year.

Another thing to consider is the bulb size or the type of socket that you need. The 1157R has a BA15D base, which means it will fit into any standard light bulb socket. This is the most common type of socket and is used in a variety of vehicles.

If you're still unsure if 1157R is right for your car, there are plenty of online resources like ours to help you find out. You can also check with local auto parts stores or even the dealership where you bought your car.

Are LED Bulbs Better Than Other Options?

As you know, the 1157R bulbs use LED technology. This means that they are more energy-efficient and long-lasting than traditional incandescent bulbs. In addition, LED bulbs produce little to no heat, so they are safer to use and won't overheat your car's electrical system.

LED bulbs are also more durable than other types of bulbs. They can withstand being turned on and off multiple times without being damaged. This makes them ideal for use as tail lights since they will be turned on and off frequently.

Overall, LED bulbs are a great option for those who want a more efficient and longer-lasting light bulb. They offer many benefits and should be considered when you are looking for a new light bulb for your car.
