Can They Be Used to Convert Headlights to LED?


OPT7 Helpful Hints Logo
Hello Fellow OPT7-ite,

OPT7 CREE LED are designed specifically for fog lights and stand-alone DRL (Day Time Running Lights). They are not designed nor bright enough for headlight use.

In general, for an LED solution to be bright enough for headlights they would need to have an in-line driver. OPT7 CREE LED offer about 700 lumens per LED bulb which is comparable to OEM fog light output
on most economy or entry-level vehicles. However, they may not exceed fog light brightness on higher end luxury vehicles.

Until Next Time,
The OPT7 Customer Experience Team
