LED help please

I excitedly put in two LED 921 replacements in my T12DD last night. I had purchased a 250 lumen and a 150 lumen because I wasn't sure how they compared to the incandescent bulbs. Somehow in my rush to purchase, I clicked on natural white rather than warm white. I have my TT stored about 15 miles from the local airport, however, I think I may have lured one or two flights from St. Louis off course! Need to check with FAA....Ok, so who has suggestions on what lumen and color to add for the other two to tone it down just a bit? I can mix them together as needed. Maybe I should change my screen name to Not So Bright?????

This is perfect timing. One of our 921 lights burnt out and I'm looking to replace it. Here is what I think I'm going to order:
Revolution 921 250 NL - Star Lights, Inc.

It's 250 lumens and 3200 kelvin. They have a chart showing the kind of light you can expect from that.

I found Amazon has them for incredibly cheaper ($22). But, there are less specs on the light on Amazon.

It's quite a bit more expensive than some other places, but I am hoping it is a better quality.

ependydad, those are the exact same bulb sold by the same company (starlights). you just have to watch the shipping cost on amazon, you would need to buy two to get the free shipping.

Yeah, sorry- I didn't word that well. I knew they were the same bulb- just cheaper price.

I'm fixing to do a big Amazon order, so the shipping will end up being free.

Just you guys know, there all pretty much made in China. The difference mainly is the circuitry, with the number of diodes as current controllers. The type of SMD on the boards, dictate the wavelength of light emitted, (i.e. bright, warm, etc.) So price, IMO is your primary concern.

So if I synthesized this correctly - I need lights that are below 15SMD, 3200 Kelvin (warm white) at a reasonable price..........

The light output is a direct relation to the number of SMD's. However, larger SMD's produce more light. Size 5050's less than 5630's. Lumens is the measurement of light. The caveat is mfg. stated claim, to actual lumens emitted.Kelvin ratings generally mean the higher the kelvin, the whiter the light. The term warm here means closer to Incandescent. White, or bright means closer to halogen in light color emitted.

New member here. I just replaced all my incandescent 921's with LED replacements. I love them. You might want to research M4 Products. Great prices and quick response

How do you replace the tube like lights in a 2014 12DDST. I have replaced the outside lights already. Just wondering about the interior ones.
