How bright are these. I would not think very, with the few LEDs it has. I got burned thinking I was getting a deal before, and the lights turned out to be very dim. I ordered some much more expensive ones from https://www.superbrightleds.com/, and they are fantastic, way brighter than the ones that came in the trailer.

According to the reviews they are brighter than the bulbs they are replacing.

Generally, any LED small enough to directly replace a 194 is pretty low power. I haven't found one bright enough to be a useful lamp in an RV. LED units on the same base sized to fit in place of the larger 9xx-series can be much brighter.

I would hesitate to buy any lighting product that doesn't list the light output (in lumens) or at least the power consumption (a poor second choice, but gives some idea of output). These are probably fine for license plate lighting, but I would be prepared for disappointment over the stove.

I just put in the super brights from M4LED.com and are happy with their brightness, got the natural white which are a bit cooler than the one Alf had replaced. They are pretty pricy but very bright, haven't had them all on at once but sure I could read without my glasses if I did!
I replaced the 3 outdoor ones as well.

I purchased one Kaper ll #5602 Daylight white from Camper World to try it out in the dining area. Way too bright. Called Kaper ll and they gave me a part # for a New White (warm)version, #WP05-003-NW. A friend of mine ordered them in for me. Not cheap. Much better light though. Where I need less light I install them upside down. No need for filter paper.

Adrian, lots of M4LED.com's Wedge Based LED Bulbs are described as "super bright", but none seem to provide any objective information about the light output. Which ones did you find work well for you? I would expect the bright enough units to be one of the "921-" models, rather than one of the "T5-" (194-replacement) models.

When comparing a LED lamp to an incandescent, it depends on which LED chip & how many are located on the lamp structure. You really need to check the Lumen output of the lamp to be able to compare it to an incandescent lamp for brightness (as well as color temperature if that is important to you). While the lamp in the ad doesn't give its Lumen output, you can find out what to expect.

A 194 incandescent lamp produces 25 Lumens. It is difficult to compare this to a generic SMD5050 LED chip (the one the description states is used in the Amazon lamp) since they can be different color temperatures, driven at different voltages, etc but a typical 6000°K color temperature LED (which is quite blue compared to the 3000°K color temperature of an incandescent 194) SMD5050 produces 12~13 Lumens. Since there are 5 of them on the lamp, you can expect about 60 Lumens which is a little over 2X the brightness of the incandescent lamp.

Again, the number of & size of the LED chips doesn't indicate brightness. t have a single XML chip flashlight that produces 500 Lumens, and a 9 chip no name flashlight from Harbor Freight that produces less than 10 Lumens.
