PIAA Japan has just released a new 1W power rated LED that is 12 times more powerful and brighter than it's original LED series. This raises automotive lighting to higher standards with stronger light emissions and reduced power consumption with a designated lifetime of approximately 5-6 years. Not bad for a product with an approximate RRP USD$50+ ~ $60+ for a set.

Can this be used for back-up lights ?
I'd do anything to get brighter back-up.

Oh do you mean rear reverse lights? If so, there are brighter applications using conventional bulbs ... Blue coated/white light emitted bulbs from Raybirg will increase visiblity by 100% at least. I'm currently using them.

Very impressive product from PIAA. Each LED comes with it's own individual ballast that needs to be wired for power. This light output is pure white, very similar to HID headlights with no faint of any yellowish accent. This is indeed significantly brighter than any replacement park light bulbs or LEDs I've ever seen. After all, I don't think any manufacturer has made ballast powered LEDs except PIAA.

Noel, what about all these, are they all 168 bulbs type?
anyone have their parts number??

2 of them are 18X brighter, but some of them (or all of them) need to use the resistor, so will they all fit after install the resistor (or they already build-in the resistor) ?

I just got finished installing the Wide Angle Superstar w/ Heatsink': 1 LED, from autolumination for my license plate lights.... they look awesome! They are only $7.99 each, so you need two of them.


They plug right in, no need for any mod's etc. Night and day difference over stock. Very bright white. They also have them in other colors etc, but for license plate, white is the only way to go.


These same LED's are what I used for my door lights, again they plug right in, and are very bright and give off a very wide spectrum of bright white light.


If anybody's interested, all you need is 4 total, 2 for the license plate lights, and 2 for the doors, and they look sweet.

It's ironic that you guys are actually improving bulbs for a license plate :). If I were to do anything with them I'd actually want to make the illumination worse, to stay less conspicuous :grinno: - don't need cops and other ppl to actually notice my license plate. Besides, NJ plates are yellow, so even if I upgrade to pure white light, it'll still show a yellow plate, so there's really no improvement from stock yellowish light.
