I am doing sizing calcs right now for my front amber running light and my rear red running/brake light. I can only fit a 1" diameter brake light into my lens housing, so I have to be careful.

I agree with Daox, I am not interested in brake lights because they are not continuous load.

The "1157/2057" bulbs have double bottoms, so I think they operate at two amperages/intensities :

For example :

Current Draw @ 12 Volts (Unit: mA.) for a 1157-R(ed)18-T = 35 mA / 115 mA
