Morimoto: Has always been our go-to-guys when it came to HID, and when they released their line of LED products, we had our doubts. Performance left a little to be desired compared to some of the more refined models on the market. BUT (and thats a big BUT) that has since changed with the much more mature, refined second generations of each model they offer. While in all-honesty Morimoto didn't exactly nail it the first time around on the LED bulbs, what we have from them today is about as modern as it gets and much more in-line with the quality and performance we've all come to expect from the brand.
So What's new with Version Two? Basically everything except the name, really. Now using their "Hybrid LED" system that was made famous by the XSB 2.0 halos and strips, the new XB T10's are A) super reliable (we've yet to see one fail), B) have an excellent 5500K white or Golden Amber color, and C) much better consistency due to the updated phosphor coating they're putting on them now. We dig it!
Featured: In the October 2015 issue of DSport Magazinealongside LED offerings from Philips and Osram. Morimoto is the benchmark in aftermarket automotive lighting!
Modern Touch:The XB LED bulbs produce plenty of light to improve illumination while adding a modern touch to your vehicle's lighting. They illuminate perfectly evenly, not spotty like the surface mounted chips found on other bulbs. Just don't stare if you care to see anything after that!
Construction: The bulb is constructed with a white fiberglass PCB sandwiched between two very unique white-faced Hybrid LED panels. The positive/ground contacts are perforated and dipped in gold copper to improve contact across both sides of the base.
Everywhere: From interior lighting to city and marker lights, the T10/194 fitment is easily one of the most common sizes used in the automotive industry. Chances are, there's a place for these bulbs on your car, especially now that they're available in both white and amber!
Can-bus: The XB LED bulbs are can-bus friendly and should not hyper flash or cause any "lamp out" errors in MOST applications. If however your vehicle requires more resistance, we recommend using the Morimoto HD Load Resistors
