Any noticeable benefits of replacing bulbs with LEDs?

Thu Jan 11, 2018 10:10 am

Hi,

I checked on Amazon and it seems like I can get all lights in my 2014 iMiev converted to LEDs. Has anyone done this and is it worth it as far as power consumption is concerned?

A few have done it - There are threads here on the forum as to what they did and what bulbs they used

Theoretically, it should give you *maybe* a quarter mile of extra range. The power used by the OEM lights is very miniscule when compared to the power the motor uses
