Arrow Chevrolet Malibu License Plate LEDs! Plug & Play Install! Same-day shipping!



Malibu License Plate LEDs


License plate bulbs are used to illuminate the rear license plate on your Malibu. From the factory, the bulbs are incandescent, lighting up in a yellowish color.

Newer luxury cars use LED modules to illuminate the license plate with modern, cool white light. By changing your license plate bulbs to LED, you can easily add this luxury look to your Malibu!

The installation is 100% plug-and-play, just replace your factory bulb.

With low price and easy install, this is one of the best, easiest modifications you can do to improve how your Malibu looks at night.

Brightness:

Diode Dynamics offers several bulb options so you can choose what fits you best. These options are listed by the design and the lumen output of each bulb:

SMD2: Slightly higher brightness than OEM bulbs. (24 lumens)
HP3: Much brighter than OEM bulbs. These are bright! (56 lumens)
HP5: Triple the brightest of OEM! (92 lumens)

Bulb Design

SMD2: Compact design, with two 5050-size Epistar SMD chips, driven at high power for maximum effective brightness. Outputs at 180 degrees.

HP3: One high-power SMD under a diffusing lens for truly even output (no hotspots). Constant current design and air-cooled base for superior reliability. Features dual contact pins and nonpolar function for easy installation.

HP5: Four high-power SMDs, under a diffusing lens. Just like the HP3, but run at higher power, with integrated copper plating for superior heat dissipation, allowing maximum brightness.

These bulbs are made up of a quality plastic connector to slide right into the plug, as well as high durability terminals. A load resistor is embedded to prevent blowing the LEDs from voltage surge, and a diode is implanted to protect the LEDs from reverse polarity. The LED is wired for 12V operation, the kind found on all vehicles.

Included in your order is TWO BULBS (to fit your Malibu).

All of our products come with a 30-day satisfaction guarantee and a 3-year limited warranty.

Re: FS: BRIGHT License Plate LEDs! Plug and Play installation! Same-day shipping!

The video is really interesting and I learned some stuff that I'll never be able to repeat,

The biggest thing I learned is that Diode Dynamics is not a drop-shipper but actually designs their own LEDs. Very interesting!

We offer the 3000K / 4300K / 5000K / 6000K / 8000K color temperature options

Anything past 8000K will lose a significant amount of usable output and will potentially get you pulled over

Please feel free to give us a call for more information: (314) 205-3033

Thanks!

Here's a recent comparison on a 2015 Silverado:



The HP3 is 56 lumens (measured) / HP5's are 92 lumens each (measured)

They are also available in warm white, 4000K, 5000K, and 6000K color temperatures

Thank you!

Wow, the HP3 looked great, but HP5 hands down blows the HP3 away, I will definitely remember you guys the next time I have to purchase more LED's

Thank you for the photos and quick response!
