LED tail light follow up- not acceptable

I ordered a pair of red led 1157 replacement dual intensity "bulbs".
Here is a link-- 2pcs 1157 BAY15D 18 SMD Red CANBUS OBC No Error Signal P21/5W Car 18 LED Light Bulb 12V-in Light Source from Automobiles & Motorcycles on Aliexpress.com

NOT ACCEPTABLE.
They are not dual intensity so can't be used as tail/brake/turn lights.
They are supposed to replace 1157 which IS a dual filament bulb.
They aren't any brighter either.
I'm out $5 for the pair. I knew it was a gamble.
No biggie.
Save your money on this one.

There are other types LED replacements out there but I'll stick with my
old incandescent tail lights for now.

I also ordered T10 led replacements for my landscape tier lights and
some inside the trailer lighting.
Those have not arrived.
I have more hope for success with them.
I'll post here with results when I receive them.

Bulbs

Did the same thing..one bulb works fine, the other is a dud...put the good on in my S-10, works fine there too, the other does not fit in the socket very well..think we will have to change the whold assembly out to make it work correctly..about sixty bucks for the pair..wish I could find a set with back up lights already installed, that is my next project!
