Multi-Sided LED headlight bulbs (bulbs with three or more sides of LED chips) seem like a good idea in theory -- more LED chips in more directions are better, right? And especially in a projector housing, right? The simple answer is NO. Watch why.
The key to a well-functioning LED headlight bulb is LED placement. LED chips located in the center of the bulb stem better mimic the location of a halogen bulb filament. Multi-sided LED headlight bulbs have a thicker bulb stem which positions the chips away from center and closer to the reflector housing. This leads to an unfocused, scattered, dim beam pattern. Watch as Eric describes the cons of these bulbs and demonstrates the bulbs inside a projector housing and reflector housing against 2-sided LED headlight bulbs.
