If you don't mind me asking BigRed, what light, from which place or seller and when did you order your lights?

I'm looking to order from one or two Ebay sellers for my Shamrock to be picked up later this May and I want to get a handle on how long its taking in case I need to order now. Thanks

ok big red, i will have to throw the BS flag on you saying the 300 lumen revolution bulb isnt as good as a regular 1156 bulb. today the lovely USPS gal brought me my revolution LEDs.... i couldnt wait for it to get dark! i thought i would start out on the short end of the stick and try the 200 lumen in the outside porch light assembly (with the yellow lens). this bulb was similar to the 1156 bulb. its too close to call which is brighter between an 1156 regular bulb and 200 lumen revolution bulb. so for those of you looking for a direct replacement.....this should do the trick. but for a few bucks more you could have the 300 lumen. i tried this bulb next. this baby puts off some light! even behind the yellow lens of the porch light, this bulb lights things up! i am very impressed and happy i ordered them.

it tried both bulb inside the camper as well. the 200 lumens are good for all practical purposes. i wouldnt spend the extra money for the 300 lumen bulbs for the interior.

Has anybody looked his stuff over yet? LEDs 4, Recreational Vehicles
I used a couple of his "pad" type replacements, and they're pretty bright.

The order from China takes from 3-5 weeks. ( I have ordered T-10,5 to 25 SMD- LED barrel lights and T-10, 4 to 42 flat panel SMD-LED's varying colors)----To Bocephous; I dont believe you have to call me out. I was basing my comment on your previous LED bulb experience, Based only on the lumens you said they gave out. You said the 36-LED place wasnt bright enough.(Now I have the 36 and 24(White-6000u to 6500u) T-10 panel lights in my camper) I thought they were very,very bright. You my friend said they werent! I was trying to give you some help. I have Startlight Revolution 150,200 and 300(White -6500u). I just asumed you were using the the same- upon closer look at your pictures (36-LED) your purchase was of one of the older LED lights that look like little bulbs, The ones I've been talking about look like little square panels with a yellowish circle in them. I'm sorry you took me as BSing you, I wasnt, was trying to keep you from ordering more sight un-seen from china @ 300 lumen range since you were unhappy with the 250 lumen LED you had already. My brightness and your brightness (based on you stating the 250 wasnt bright enough) the 300 wasnt going to help you. Added that some friends of mine that have seen the LED's I have dont think they are bright enough for outside even though, i thought they gave off just as much light. I also am having a problem down-loading pictures to the forum or I would have added them so we were comparing apples to apples. So to the OP, I would order them soon,like yesterday if you want them in May.-- Also as a note there are color ranges you can purchase LED's in, Some people like the Bright crisp White light and other's as for reading like the soft yellowish light(Warm White) that most incandesent lights give out. Bottom Line- you weren't using SMD-LED's and I thought you were, I didnt click on your all your links!

toshu........a picture tells the story. You purchased the warm white panel(36). The White-is even brighter than the warm white, but gives everything a blue-ish White tint color where as the warm white gives off a more natural color. I can get my %$##@ computer to share a link or a picture.......dont know what im doing wrong! Computer is only as smart as its operator.

use a photo hosting web site such as photobucket.com. its free and easy. up load your pics, and it automatically gives you a link to copy and paste into any forum
