Default Hyper Flashing

1. What are the negative effects of "Hyper Flashing" ?

2. Is it worth getting the resistors or 'anti flash' devices when changing the "blinking" lights to LEDs?

I never saw the advantage of LEDs, to be honest. I never found any that would fully illuminate the lenses like the standard bulbs. Standard bulbs last a long time.


Hyper flashing could cause epileptic seizures... maybe. IDK. It just looks wrong. resisters or an electronic flasher will fix it. If you're gonna' do it, do it all the way.

All you need is a $13 relay from the parts store. Takes 2 mins to change. I had the hyperflash for about a year with no side effects.

I installed LEDs and had lived with hyper flashing for about 3 months before calling SuperBright.com to ask if I would have an problem with a hyper flashing.The answer was no problem. I could correct it easy enough by what’s been mentioned but I ended up pulling the LEDs I just don’t see the benifit.

Imo, there was d no advantage to the LEDs. I just like how the fill the lens with light instead of a small ball of light in the middle of the lens. Strictly cosmetic. I still have halogen headlights. lol

LED has its place.



Skip the resistors and do a proper flasher relay.



My LEDs fill out the housings. The blinkers in the rear are crazy bright. No way in hell you can miss them. The dual filament fronts are brighter but not as much as the rear. My tails are also brother than halogen was.



Headlights are HID projectors. They put all LED headlights to shame.



I like the sudden state change on LED unlike the fade in and out of halogen as the filament heats and cools. That's just me.
