Do They Make A Replacement LED Wedge Style Bulb

I have an 824 that I put a cheap grip heater on and like everyone else note the already lame yellow light is even worse. The heater works like crap too much as I figured it would.
I looked around a bit and haven't seen the wedge style bulbs in LED . If they are out there I'm sure someone already has found them please show me where. I don't want to make an add on light bar thing out of this as I am saving that for my tractor but rather just a swap out. What say ye?????

I use these as backup lights in my Cobalts. They work good.

A lot brighter than the fireflies that were in there before.

Wow, I never even knew these guys were around. Can't begin to beat the price either. That will free up another 3o watts to pump up those handgrips so I might just begin to feel them.
Thanks for that, I;ll order some up right now so I have them when I get home from Germany in 3 weeks. I'm sure there will be plenty of snow clearing catch up to deal with in NY by then.
Is that free shipping I see there? Say it's so

Yup free shipping, but it will come via Cargo ship and will take 4 weeks. If you want it sooner better upgrade to air or express.

They do have these wedge style bulbs available online but you may notice a little flicker depending on how clean the power is coming out of your engine circuitry

The meltdown is under way ...

It is most likely AC coming off of the lighting circuit, so it probably will flicker.
I would also wonder about the spread of light from those wedge LEDs. Since they won't use the reflector in your factory light they may be extremely directional and not achieve enough spread.

Edit :I just noticed that those LEDs are rated as "7w output" which typically means that they are equivalent to 7w of incandescent. They may be extremely dim for your application, but for the price they are worth at least trying.

No, If the specifications read that the LED's consume 7w then I would assume that they would be extremely bright, far exceding a 7w incandescent. Maybe this is just a typo on the specifications? The heatsink on those LED's is very small if the LED actually consumes 7w.
