LED Fog Light Bulbs

H11: Morimoto 2Stroke 3.0


PART #: 2 x LED1523

[ In Stock: 0 pieces ]


Product Details

Benchmark: Over the course of the last year, Morimoto was hard at work developing a new kind of LED bulb. It re-creates the original beam pattern from your optics effectively by doing more with less. They will put more light on the road for you as the driver, while creating less glare for oncoming traffic compared to any other LED bulb on the market today. While LED bulbs still aren't DOT approved for use in headlights in the states.. foreign markets and fog light users can enjoy the best plug n play LED bulb to date. The 2Stroke 3.0. (Patents Pending)

Superior Beam Quality: The advanced PCB technology at the core of the 2Stroke 3.0 sets a new industry benchmark emission surface interval of just 2mm total. The PCB core itself is just 1.0mm thick. The dielectric layer: 300um. The circuit pattern: 140um, and the Osram Oslon HKL351.TE LED chips: just .43mm each. Paired with the 1.03 x 4.33mm light-emitting surface area of the LEDs: this adds up to a total cubic volume of 4.46mm. At the end of the day, no LED bulb in the world more closely simulates the filament size of an incandescent bulb more accurately than the Morimoto 2Stroke 3.0--and for those in the know, this is critical when it comes to proper beam distribution.

H11 Tension Spring: The H11/H9 version of the 2Stroke 3.0 has a particularly special bulb base that's spec'd with an OE-standard tension spring. This pushes the entire bulb base downward with 5nm of force, resulting in a bulb that's been properly seated according to the needs of optics. The tooling required to produce these parts alone was extremely expensive. You'll be hard pressed to find another brand who cares enough to make that kind of investment on this often-overlooked feature.

Optimized focal length: Each size in the 2Stroke 3.0 lineup has been painstakingly optimized for proper output in its designated application. The critical reference distance has been calculated based on the geometry of the bulb base and the footprint of the Osram HKL emitter. To ensure consistency, special tools were designed to quality-control the accuracy of each bulb as it comes off the production line. Most other LED fog light bulbs on the market use a 'set it and forget it' reference distance across all sizes in the series, which is not the case here.

360 degrees of Rotation: The 2Stroke 3.0 LED bulbs feature a fully adjustable base. In order to fully utilize the optical facets in any reflector or projector: The light emitting diodes must face the 3-o-clock and 9-o-clock positions. Since no single standard exists across different headlight and fog light assemblies, all bulbs in the 2Stroke 3.0 range are fully adjustable. A geared step rotational adjuster mechanism is installed for all bulbs which twist-to-lock, offering adjustability in 15-degree intervals. An omni-adjustable rotation mechanism is utilized on all bulbs that are press-fit or clip into the housing.

Thermal management: Once the bulb is installed, the high-speed fan contained within is completely sealed, making the 2Stroke 3.0 the first actively cooled LED bulb with a fan that's not susceptible to outside elements. Their unique internal circulation cooling system uses a 12,000-rpm cyclone fan to suck cool air into the body of the bulb and blow warm air out, back into the housing. On the intake side, cold air is sucked in past the sidewall of the PCB to exchange heat and is blown out the opposite side of the bulb. This effectively cools the bulb while warming the ambient temperature inside of the housing, increasing resistance to snow/ice buildup on the lens during the winter months. The cooling system on the 2Stroke 3.0 not only does it's job to protect the longevity of the bulb, but serves up a bad-weather benefit not found elsewhere. US Patent #11079090 (Click for Details)

DRL Drive: The LED Driver is configured to accept a wide range of input voltage, making them compatible with low voltage daytime running lights commonly found on modern vehicles. When the LED driver detects 6-9V of input: The system logic automatically switches to produce just 30% of the standard output. The low power drive rate of 250mA produces only 460lm per emitter and enables the 2Stroke 3.0 to produce a suitably low output volume as a daytime running light. In this mode, the cooling fan also shuts off to conserve power/lifespan. For vehicles with a PWM-based DRL signal, an inline PWM module that produces a clean DC6V will be required. The driver is completely potted, making it completely weather-proof. Note that the DRL-Drive function is only for use in non-US markets.

Excellent customer service and great bulbs


I purchased the Morimoto 2 Stroke 3.0 for my 2020 Chevy 2500hd. I bought both hi and low beams. I messed up and purchased the wrong type of bulbs for the hi beams. TRS was quick to respond and fix the problem. Their service is excellent. They quickly helped me with my problem and answered all of my questions. As far as the bulbs, they are great. The bulbs throw a nice light down the road (low beams) without blinding on coming traffic. Both low and hi are bright. I have read a lot of reviews from other sources about the beam pattern and these bulbs seem perfect to me. The only complaint I would have is that some of the bulbs were a pain to lock in. The driver side on my truck was easy, but it took a while to lock in the bulbs on the passenger side. I'm not sure if it was the headlight assembly or the bulb itself, but it was hard to turn it to lock it in. But after I finally got them locked in, they were not going to jump around like other ones I've purchased.

2015 WRX


I have a 2015 wrx and used these on my new headlights. Output was amazing and a lot better than the original halogens. A lot better and brighter than other competitors out there!

Not without shortfalls


Installed on a 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe. You're going to need PWM harnesses for these if installing on the same platform; otherwise you'll experience flicker and failure to fire up.

Install was slightly problematic in that the retaining spring fell out of one of the units which allows the bulb to move about freely with some effort. It's not so loose that you lose the 9-3 o'clock orientation during normal driving. Another thing was that it was absolutely frustrating to get the orientation right because it would not turn enough to the 9-3 position and I had to take off the base ring to adjust to what would get it close to spec.

Regardless, the end result is what people care about and it does well in projector assemblies as long as you orient them correctly. Wide enough cast light with good throw especially compared to OEM halogen. That was just straight dangerous. Looking past the obstacles, this still earns 5 stars.

H11 Spring is Garbage


These bulbs appear to be high quality except for the little detail required for H11 bulbs, the retainer spring. This is a little hump of steel on the top to provide resistance when locked in place. On both bulbs, the spring had too round of a profile and the spring doubled over when trying to lock into place. Had to attempt to straighten and flatten the spring so that it would fold flat as you locked the bulb in place. What a pain in the rear! If you compare to a halogen H11 bulb you can see how this falls flat.

Noisy but bright (HID is better)


First thing you’ll notice is how loud the fans in these are. Can hear it from inside the car. Also, coming from an HID retrofit, I was expecting these to be just as bright. They’re bright and a definite upgrade from stock but HID is still superior in terms of light output.

The plus side is these LED bulbs are as easy as changing the stock bulb - HID is a lot more involved. All in all, these are worth the money and a definite upgrade

Excellent Lights


Easy to install. much brighter and keeps the same beam pattern. 2017 ford focus st (ST1 halogen bulbs) did not need the anti flicker modules. will probably order the high beams next since halogens are barely brighter than the low beams now.

Easy Install and Really Bright


These are very easy plug and play to install. Took no more than 10 minutes. They are much brighter than stock bulbs.

Excellent upgrade, these led lights do what they say, there is alot of wiring with the anti flicker add on but everything did fit inside the headlight housing with the dust cover on. Fast shipping also ordered on Thursday had them on Monday.

Awesome light. Fan is stupid loud, other than that it's really good
