W5W -

So, for me and Hondero, think these will melt plastic?

I would not be the guinea pig for sure, going from 1.7W to 5W is a big jump.  Aside from the potential of meling stuff, they probably won't last nearly as long as the stock ones.  I also don't understand wanting brighter instrument lights.

The ones I ordered are from the previous thread. They are low wattage.

Agreed, I think LED bulbs are sized as equivalent to incandescent in brightness, based on the ones I have used. They will use far less power. 


As a rule LED replacements (equal of slightly greater output) are cooler and less power than standard bulbs.  If you want to use LEDs running to the old wattage output, you get much brighter with more heat.  Typically what’s in the stores are intended as replacement for stock bulb brightness.
