Hey let us know how bright the 42 bulb ones are. My wife does not think the 25 bulb ones are bright enough and took some of them out.

Thanks!

Will do. I just ordered a 4 pack of them ($21). Gotta love that pricing

The same seller also has the 42 led version which should be brighter. I am gonna order 4 of those and try them. I will probably move these from the main living area to the bedroom. I will probably get more of the 25 led ones for the rest of the trailer.

I am gonna leave the bulbs over the bathroom mirror alone though and replace all the rest.

I also noticed that the light fixtures (by command electronics) do not have reflectors at all. Just white plastic. I wonder if adding a reflector (or aluminum foil) would help the output a bit.
I received mine on Friday (the 25 led ones). I agree they are pretty blueish compared to the incandescent bulbs. They are pretty bright but not quite bright enough. I think I'm also going to go for the high led count lights from the same seller. The power usage and low heat is very very nice.

Just got home from camping and a 4 pack of the 42 led version was in my mailbox. Installed them and they look brighter but it's hard to tell in full daylight. Anxiously waiting for the sun to set. Will post back tonight

Interesting. They don't seem much brighter at all. Maybe 10% if anything. But they are whiter except one of the 4 is a little bluer.

Interesting, I should get mine later this week. I'll report what mine look like. I'd guess they will be similar.

This is why I paid more for mine from a dealer rather than buy that ebay junk. Mine are all bright white and BRIGHT... Really only needed one per fixture but have the 2 in each now...

I ordered a dozen more of the 25 led ones today. Gonna switch the rest of the trailer out. $36 for the dozen. Total for all 20 that I have ordered is under $70. With all LEDs in the main living area now we are happy with them. If I turn on the table light, to supplement the two overheads it is plenty bright. And I'm still saving a ton of power even though I gotta run one extra fixture.

Sure I would probably prefer the look of the $25 bulbs, but not for $500 vs $70.

This is even more strange. I did power readings on the 25 vs 42 led bulbs. The 42 LEDs draw .075 amps at 12.65 volts and the 25 led bulbs are showing .12 amps at 12.65v.

So the 42's are putting out approx the same amount of light but doing so with even less power. The LEDs must be arranged in series.

So 25 LED lights are using about 1.5 watts and the 42 LED about 1 watt?

Interesting indeed. I'll do the same test on the ones I get.
