Default Are IPCW LED Taillights Too Bright?

So I got my ruby red taillights during the group buy late last year. While driving at night, I sometimes see the light reflecting off signs and cars behind me, so I thought wow, these things must be bright. Then I noticed when I'm braking, like at stop lights, that the tails are illuminating the interior of the car behind me! I've even been high beamed once, from a car that was behind me on a 4-lane road, so I'm pretty sure it's because of the taillights. So one day I turn my headlights on and walk behind my car to check it out, and I'm like "f@ck these ARE pretty bright", and that's without the brakes, I can't even imagine how bright they are when the brakes are on.

Does anyone else feel this way? I don't know anyone local with ruby reds so I can't compare, but my two issues are that if the LED's are this bright, they are probably being overdriven and are more prone to failure, and that the brightness could be affecting other drivers. I've seen other OEM LED taillights and none of them are as bright as these. I could take pictures but it'll be hard to accurately display the brightness of the red light.

I have the black ones, and I've never thought that they are too bright. I have noticed, though, that there doesn't seem to be a HUGE difference between them just being on and the brakes being applied. The brakes on they are just marginally brighter. My third brake light always lights which makes the brake lights seem brighter.

You speak of my older set. They are dim compared to yours. There are so many factors from the materials used to the amount of usage. I drive with my lights on all the time. Over time, just as with any light source, LED's do lose their brightness. Or they may be made from different materials. Who knows.

The brake lights are very bright though. I can see peoples faces in the mirror lit up looking like hell boy.

Lol I just installed the ipcw chrome ones last night, was gonna get smoked but some guy asked me outside autozone of I wanted to buy them since he didn't like the color and got ruby, anyways I got them for $140, and they are BRIGHT that's why I LOVE them

I used to hate people that had them so now it's my turn to attract haters, like others have said people can't miss you braking, so more advantage.

I'm also about to replace the factory hid bulbs with 8k's so I can be real bright all around :D

they are WAY brighter than other taillights. On two lane roads between towns at night when i hit the breaks i can light up signs clearly that are 200-300+ yards away. Really though theres nothing thats TOO bright, especially if youre in an area with foggy weather, they could save your life. The other thing is all taillights are red, so although they will be bright they shouldnt affect peoples vision at night, that will be affected far more by oncoming headlights.

I agree.I have the ruby red as well and I think they are very bright. If I close my garage and turn off all the lights and then hit the brakes, my garage lights up.

That's why I feel they are indeed TOO bright. When I look at them from behind, the parking lights are already almost the same brightness as most people's brake lights, so I feel like the jacka$$ who replaced their brake light with the wrong bulb and it's just constantly super bright, and the worst part is that's not even it's brightest. I love how the taillights look, but I hate being the jacka$$ with bright a$$ taillights that make people have to cover their eyes or look away. I don't like when other people do it, so I don't want to do it either. I think there is such thing as too bright, regardless of color, since any color equal in brightness will have similar affect on your night vision. I know when someone with busted taillights that are constantly bright drive past me I can see better on the opposite side of the car, similar to when a car with bright headlights is driving behind me.

If you really plan on being real bright all around you are heading in the opposite direction. The higher in color temperature you go the less bright it is, and assuming you're using aftermarket bulbs since no OEM manufacturer makes anything above 6000k, it'll be even worse. 4300k is technically the brightest, but if you get Osram/Sylvania CBI's those are probably the best bulbs on the market, equivalent if not brighter than 4300k bulbs and at 5000k color temperature has a crisp white output. They're not cheap at almost $200 a pair, but you said you want bright. Those are definitely on my to-do list.

I agree they are bright as hell but I love it and have received many compliments for them. I also see signs behind me light up in red. And i got these during the deal, the ruby reds. I don't mind the brightness at all though.

I'm done with vinyl, and I don't want the tails darker than they already are.

I love how it looks too, but like I said, my two concerns are blinding other drivers and the LED's being overdriven. With the LED's this bright they must be running at or past nominal, which means they'll eventually fail and you'll have to replace the tail. Overdriving LED's would defeat the purpose of them, lights that will outlast halogen bulbs. I recall at least one instance (I believe there are more) of single LED's going out, whether it's due to a faulty LED or being overdriven .

I always liked how bright mine were, they aren't to the point of blinding people behind you so consider them to be safer that's all. As far as them being overdriven, I think the brightness also comes from the design and the added reflector, not too much power being put to them. The failure rate to date has been really low. They really did a great job finishing the design of those for us.

Now I got new LED tails for my Titan and these things are even brighter! I also notice everything behind me lighting up when I hit the brakes but again, hopefully it will prevent anyone from rear ending me!

It's not that simple, you would have to go through a warranty exchange through the vendor you got it from. And the ones from EzKoncepts ARE IPCW, EzKoncepts is just the vendor. Some people have had fogging issues with the recent set of black ones but other than that, haven't heard of any other issues.

3157's probably won't be that bright thru stock tails. I tried some, they weren't from V LEDs, but they weren't nearly bright enough.
