  • Why LED? 

    By now most people have come to realize the advantage of using LED lights as opposed to conventional incandescent lights. If you're one of the few that hasn't already come to see the benefits of LED lights, here's why they're so popular. 

    The initial purchase price of an LED light is higher than that of an incandescent equivalent but the long term savings are well worth the initial investment. A quality LED light will last for many years, so you'll never have to replace globes. Because of this, there's no need to open the light, which gives you a perfect seal - no water or dust collecting inside the lens. 

    LED lights use very little power - around 10% of conventional lamps. This reduces the load on your vehicle's electrical system. It is also highly advantageous when you park in a dark area and want to leave your lights on to remain visible for safety reasons. LED lights can be left on for hours without draining the battery. 

    Some manufacturers produce low quality, cheaper products that have given LEDs a bad reputation. It's important to buy quality and this will ensure that you get many years of maintenance free use from the product. Always check that you're buying a product that is going to last. 

    Fortunately, we've done all the work for you. All of the products that we've reviewed here have been tried and tested by regular users like you. People have had a tremendously positive response to them, so you can be sure that you're not forking out your hard-earned cash on something that's going to disappoint you. You can buy these products with complete confidence.

    Hello, I have a stupid question, I ordered some LED lights off of Ebay, They are a 3.8" Led side marker light, 5 red and 5 amber, they have two wire on each, on the AMBER there is a yellow and black and on the red there is a Black and red, I want to mount these to a wood trailer , so what wires go where? I understand that the black is the power?? Any input would be great

    • Partsam says 2017-12-26 06:05

      Firstly, I want to know which 3.8" led SIDE MARKER light you bought, if you dont mind, you can have a ebay item # to us for reference, because, we want to confirm if we have them so that we can test them for you, normally, the black wire is the ground, if your receive the amber there is a yellow and black and on the red there is a Black and red, maybe, on amber light, you can connect the yellow wire as the positive wire, black as the ground, on red light, you can connect the red wire as the postive wire, and the black wire is still the ground wire, we hope that will be helpful, we think maybe better we have the item number, thanks

    Hi, is just bought the following off of Amazon. (partsam 2pcs 3/4" Miniature Side Marker Clearance LED Light Round White Waterproof) My intention is to use these as replacement lights in my Lund Moonvisor on my truck. I have never hooked up LED lights before, and I see a lot of confusing mess on the internet. First of all, for five lights, all in a row on one circuit, should I connect series or parallel? Second, I keep seeing a bunch of stuff about needing to connect resistors also, or the led could burn out from over power? Do I seriously need to worry about resistors also?

    • Partsam says 2018-09-20 09:21

      Hi, Thanks for your message here, we are glad to answer your quest, in fact, we suggest you connect parallel, because if you connect series, one bulb defective, the others will be non-working, so, we suggest you connect parallel. This light never need to be installed the resistor, because this one support DC 12V power source direcetly, there is no need add any resister for it. you can connect it with DC 12v POWER Source to make it work, any else ew can help, you can email back to us. Thanks for your time
