Found another good LED product.
At Lows I found 12VAC 1watt LED replacement array for 8-10watt T3 and G4 halogen bulbs.
I think it was $8 or $9.
Its a flat panel of LED cells, very directional.
The color is in the 3000k range (warm white), its nice and white with a bit of yellow. Not the typical light you think of when it comes to LEDs.
This would be good for universial fitment. It looks real useful for converting different things over to LED.
And its "designed and assembled in the USA".

Array Lighting - Premium LED lamp bulbs utilizing Selective Heat Sink Technology

Now since its rated for 12VAC, AC power is just a hair under 50% or less duty cycle and the web site says its good for 10% to 100% I have it hooked up to a car battery right now testing 100% duty cycle now, its been running it for about 2 or 3 hours so far.
The in back where its hooked up its 65'F the back of the array is peaking at 172'F with my temperature scaner.
At 12.2v when warmed up its drawing 130ma or 1.6w.
1984 chevy suburban, custom made 6.5L diesel turbocharged with a Garrett T76 and Holset HE351VE, 22:1 compression 13psi of intercooled boost.
1989 firebird mostly stock. Aside from the 6-speed manual trans, corvette gen 5 front brakes, 1LE drive shaft, 4th Gen disc brake fbody rear end.
2011 leaf SL, white, portable 240v CHAdeMO, trailer hitch, new batt as of 2014.
