I'm browsing your site looking for suitable LEDs but I'm running into problems on correct bulb size and wattages.

Specifically, my rear cargo lights says right on the bulb that the size is a 912 however there nothing on your site that references it. Other vendors say that a 194 works but that's an awfully small bulb and your site doesn't make any similar cross references.

The other thing is that wattages aren't listed, at least not where I've found them. LEDs consume less but when you have a 3x4 board, the wattage likely exceeds stock. I bring this up because I venture off the beaten path and having having trunk and doors open for quite some time isn't unusual. That kind of info, just like you publish for lumens, would be important to know, at least to me.

Hello @Rub,

912 is a cross reference number for the 921 bulb size. It also uses the same base size as 194 bulb, as others have mentioned.

We have several 194 and 921 options available, each with a measured lumen output listed so you can match what is desired for your applications.

Wattage is not listed, but we can provide you any information you need from our test results. All of our products are designed specifically for the automotive application, and measured extensively to provide customers with honest, accurate information.

With that being said, our 194 LEDs draw about 1/7th the power of an incandescent bulb. If you go with a 12-SMD board, it will consume about 1/3 (5 watts) of the power a traditional 921 (20 watts) uses.

We will be posting more of our testing data on the website in the future, but if you need more information, please feel free to contact us

Thank you!
Nick C.
