These LEDs are not suited for use in headlight units, just as I expected. The 'filament' is too large to allow for sharply defined beams.
(H11 lamps are single filament anyway. These probably would work as high beams, but my high beams use a different lamp type)

They are marginally usable as fog lights, depending on the fog light housing.
Their light output just isn't enough to justify their use as fog lights.

They are fit to use as DRLs in most fog light housings. Which was what I was looking for.
If these don't fail prematurely I'm very happy indeed.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.19 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

For confirmation go to people just like you.
For education go to people unlike yourself.
