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

Yeah, unless my multi meter is screwed up. I measured 0.16 amps with everything off. With a double fixture of the 25s i got 0.40 amps. With a double fixture of the 42s I got a reading of 0.31 amps. Subtract out the 0.16 amps of mystery load to get just bulbs.

I didn't expect to see that. Measured each bulb 3 times and got same.

I will take a pic tomorrow night to show how they look. After getting used to the color they actually look great to me. I put the 921s back in and they are very harsh by comparison.

Final order came in, my trailer is now all LED. Did a current test with 20 bulbs on, I draw 2.02 amps total. Awesome. With a single 921 I draw 1.54.

Dry camping this weekend, and will report how they work in the wild with wife and 2 young-un's.

I thought I'd get them today but looks like they will come tomorrow (Friday). Looking forward to checking them out and comparing them to the 25 LED ones I got last week.

I checked both my 25 LED and 42 LED lights (received my 42 LED ones Friday). About the same sort of measurements. .04 amps for the 42 LED light and .1 amps for the 25 LED light. I tested right from the battery (which was at about 12.61 volts). So looks like about 1.26 watts for the 25 LED light and an amazing .5 watts for the 42 LED light.

Just looking at the two lights last night, I really could not see much of any real difference is the amount of light output between the two.

I'll post a few picture I took in just a bit.

Here are some pictures of the LEDs that I (and jpeake) picked up on ebay.

Stock light vs 42 LED, Stock is slightly brighter, but of course hotter and uses (much) more power.

Left is 25 LED Right 42 LED, almost seems like the 25 LED might be brighter, but it's really hard to say.

Over all, I'm happy with the LED lights and really like (very low) power usage

I'm less concerned with saving power as I am making the light a bit dimmer. There are so many lites in our 28bhs, its blinding. i would love to have some dimmer bulbs, does any one know if they makes something like that?

So which one did you end up with, the 25 or the 42 in your trailer? Would you say that the lights are at least bright as the OEM? What is the Ebay item number for the 25?

Thanks

I'm using both, mostly the 42 LED ones as I bought 2 (packs of 4 for a total of 8 lights). Some of the 25 LED ones I had I put in the bath room and then trying to figure out if I want to replace the one above the sink and/or couch. The ones in the main part of the camper have been replaced with the 42LED lights. I was thinking the 42LED lights might be brighter then the 25LED, don't seem to be to me.

They are not as bright as the OEM 18W bulbs, but "close". I wish I had someway of actually telling how different they are other then just eye sight. It was cheap enough to try them out, so I did. They are a little more blue then I might like, but I did not really like the orange'ish color of the OEM either. My wife says she is fine with the LED lights.

Here are the 25LED ones I bought:

Here are the 42LED ones I also bought:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2X-SU...item4cf750c88d

If reading this post after these are no longer current, you can search for 921 for ebay seller dt-autotech.

The 42LED light do seem to use less power, they don't seem to give of any more light then the 25LED, best I can tell. If I needed to buy more, I'm really not sure which I'd go with. I might have to toss a coin.

What bulb number do you have now? If say it's the #921 which are 18W, you may be able to pick up some #912 that are 13W to get you want you want.
