    Default LED Strobing & Resistor Size?

    Has anyone got the definitive answer for this? what size to use to fool the pulse etc...

    Been thinking of doing a couple of relays so i can fit LED reverse and brake bulbs, but I'm not going to wire in a loose bulb holder like on my fronts... Bit too messy IMO...

    I've got a circuit on test at the moment mate on my Cree LED Full beams. It's a little more complex than just a resistor though. There's transistors, caps and diodes in there too. It's just a case of trimming the cap value up enough to absorb the pulse but not stop the transistor from working.

    I'd planned to put a bulb holder before the block (for warning) then this onto trigger a relay, take a 12v for the relay to the bulb tray... should be fine. just didn't want loose lit bulbs like the front side lights...
