You want the Best Deal for a luxury lighting feel to your car?
Well today, I am going to be answering those questions, and giving you my final say to a widely known brand of LED lights, LEDGlow. Are these interior LEDS really worth it?
Let’s find out
Hey what’s up guys! Visual Tech Reviews here from VisualTechReviews.com with yet another honest lighting review. Today’s review is a definite treat, as we get to take a deep look at the LEDGlow Lighting kit. These lights run from about $30 to $100, depending on the options you are looking to have on the kit.
Personally, I bought the $35 footwell lighting kit, and I have had these lights on my car for years now. I am going to be going over my kit mostly that I currently have on my car, but just keep in mind, that as the price increases on these kits you only get more goodies and features included!
Features and What’s Included
When you buy this interior lighting kit (4pc), you will get
- Four Ultra Bright 9″ LED tubes
- A Small Control Box connecting all the LED Tubes
- The Main Power Wires that contains a Fuse
- Couple of Zip Ties
- Couple of Small Screws
- 3M Adhesive Tape
- Installation Instructions
Each LED tube has 5 feet of wire length available, which should give you more than enough length to make a nice looking install. All the wires are already attached to the tubes and control box, the only thing you need to do is add a 12v power source (Cigarette Lighter, car fuses, etc.) and it should be ready to go.
Lets take a look at the features of the control box
Solid colors that can be shown are: Red, Green, Purple, Blue, Teal, Yellow and White
- Four Color Fading Modes
- Three Strobe Modes
- One Sound Mode (reacts to music or sounds inside your car or truck)
- Auto Illumination Mode (turns on whenever your car door opens, ignition starts, etc)
The sensitivity wheel you see on the side of the box is to change how sensitive you would like it to be on sound mode. In other words, if you like to blast your music pretty loud inside your car, you are probably going to want to turn down the sensitivity a bit so it doesn’t just detect a bunch of loud sounds the whole time.
The ‘on/off’ button is straight forward. The ‘sound’ button is only for sound mode, and for the ‘mode’ button, you just keep pressing it until you can see which mode you like.
This is something that actually surprised me a bit. For $35, you really do get something that doesn’t feel fragile or easy to break. Also keep in mind that you really aren’t going to be touching the LED tubes once it is setup. The wires feel well attached to the LEDs, which is something I worried about when I first ordered the lights. You don’t want to buy something too cheap or the wires could be pulled out of the lighting tubes. For example, let’s say you want to adjust your seat by moving all the way back, however, the lighting is attached to the bottom of your set, then the wires will get a bit of a tug depending on how you set it up.
The only thing I have felt that could be improved is the control box. It is a small plastic box that doesn’t have much weight to it, and is where all the wires connect together. I haven’t ever had a problem with it, but if i HAD to choose one thing that wasn’t the best quality, I would say the control box.
Brightness of LEDS
The simple answer to ‘how bright are these LEDS?’ is they are definitely bright. As long as you tilt the LED tubes in a direction where most light will be spread out, they will light up your car interior very nicely. Take a look at the attached pictures of my personal car with the lighting kit. I can’t speak for any other lighting kits, but if you are worried these lights won’t light up your car interior… don’t worry.
When you install them, just move them around to a couple different places within the footwell, and tilt them to different angles to find the best lighting position. This is what I did, and I got a pretty nice set up.
How easy is it to Install?
This is the most common question I get asked when someone hops into my car, right after they say “Whoa! This is awesome!” of course. To answer this in the best way I can, I say the ease of installation is all up to you.
You can either buy an adapter to plug the wires into the cigarette lighter and be done with it, like this one or install it more professionally which is what I did.
There are quite a few different ways to go about installing your LEDS, but I would HIGHLY recommend spending an hour or so, depending on your certain car or truck, to get them installed nicely because once they are put in well, they can stay there and you won’t have to worry about them anymore!
If you want me to show you exactly how I installed mine to turn on and off with my engine, stay tuned and I will have the instructions posted soon on this website!
