SB-823 14.5v White 39mm Fuse Style LED

I've had them in my car since February, and not a single flicker. The ones I bought from SuperBrightLEDs.com flickered and burnt out within weeks of installation. I should also note that when I'm driving, my parking lights are ALWAYS on, which means these LEDs stay on whenever I'm in the car as well.

UPDATE:

I emailed 42 Draft Designs and John emailed me right back. He reminded me that I am human and can make mistakes. Haha. The bulbs have diodes and have to be rotated 180 degrees if they dont light up initially. I had tried it originally, but being human, I didnt rotate corectly. All is well now and my lights look good. Here is a day shot. Ill take a night shot in a little bit.

Yeah, I was 0 for 2 when I tried putting them in. So annoying that you have to take everything apart again just to change the pos/neg ends! Not that it was tremendously hard, however...
