I don't think an LED, a single LED, would be brighter than a filament bulb. Most rear-end brake lights have about 20 LED's to be as bright as a single old-fashioned incandescent bulb. Have you checked the lumen output of the bulbs involved? Yeah, this device is a wimpy thing... probably meant to look around the interior of the car by a stylish German woman who dropped her lipstick at 200K/H without disturbing the driver. Let me know if you ruin your's. I got an extra.
