LiteZupp Industries, LLC was started in mid 2009. The first products were brake lights that were sold to friends and club members to improve the visibility of our antique cars. There were other LED lights on the market, but we wanted to offer a product that was very easy to install and worked better than the incandescent bulb it replaced. We have since sold our lamps to antique car enthusiasts across the US and in a number of other countries.
Our next offering was turn signal lamps and we encountered a new problem. Old style flashers depend on the current passing through a bimetallic strip which the current heats and the heat causes it to curl. LED lamps are much more efficient and the current is too low to properly heat the strip. There are a number of electronic flashers offered which overcome this problem.
Why LED's? LED lamps offer several advantages over incandescent lamps:
- More light output
- Faster response
- Less heat
- Lower current draw
- Better shock and vibration tolerance
There are also a few drawbacks:
- Old style turn signal flashers do not work properly with LED lamps and must be replaced by an electronic flasher.
- Corrosion in older wiring harnesses creates some problems.
Our goal at LiteZupp is to produce the best product at a reasonable price. The LED's chosen are the highest quality. Housings are machined from Aluminum Bar, which is a bit more expensive than other alternatives, but the machined part yields a better product with better heat sink area for the LEDs. Our designs come from years of experience with LEDs and engineers working in the field of optical technology. Quite simply, Litezupp products function better both electrically and mechanically.
We believe that we make a excellent product which you will be happy you purchased!
