In Comparison: The Morimoto Heavy Duty Load Resistors may do the same thing as a cheap golden resistor you can buy for a fraction of the price, but they'll stay much cooler, keep you much safer, last way longer, and look much better doing it!
You got it! A set of expensive dual-intensity or switchback LED bulbs....so why skimp out on the resistors that are sometimes required to keep your car happy while running them? Don't be "that guy" with an expensive set of LEDs in your headlights relying on a $1.99 craptastic resistor to keep em running.
Notorious: As a component that's notorious for getting extremely hot when in use, it's not only careless to use a cheaply made automotive load resistor, it's dangerous. Not to mention the fact that the guys selling you those cheapo ones recommend mounting them with double-sided tape. What? that's going to fall off the first time the thing heats up. These MUST be mounted to a metal surface, with screws. Period....and that's why the Morimoto's have integrated mounting points.
What's Inside: The extruded aluminum housing doubles as a heat-sink and outer shell for the resistor. To maximize heat-transfer, that's all one piece. On each end, 14 gauge wiring exits through ceramic ports to prevent anything from coming into contact with any heated surfaces. Everything is properly shielded with additional heat-shrink and capped off with high-quality terminals. From end-to-end the Morimoto HD load resistors are worth their weight, no doubt about it.
Tap that: The LED load resistors come with the necessary crimp-on wire taps and male terminals to easily tap them in between the +/- circuit powering to your bulb. Easy install, easy fix!
Trusted: For more than a decade, we've worked hard to earn our killer reputation.

Quality resistors. Not flimsy like the dime-a-dozen gold ones you see everywhere. I've had several of those where the wires easily break off where they connect to the resistor. These HD ones will not have that problem. It also looks like these will do a better job with the heat dissipation. I would give 5 stars, but one of the two resistors I ordered arrived with some deep scratches on the case and inconsistent coloring of the lettering-engraving.
Resistors worked exactly as advertised. I used four of them for turn signals and have no errors or hyperflash! Great product. Included splice clamp makes install a breeze. Would recommend!
