    Default 194 vs 168 vs 2825 bulbs, in case you were wondering

    I got curious enough to ask Osram/Sylvania while looking for new license plate bulbs. I googled and didn't find a good answer, some even wrote that 2825 was just Sylvania's own number for one of the others. But they sell each number under the same lines of bulbs, and each of the 3 are listed as alternates for the others. This was their answer:

    With traditional, the wattage, amps, and life vary.

    194 is .27A - 2500 hours
    168 is .35A - 1500 hours
    2825 is .41A - 300 hours

    The 2825 will have the highest lumens, with 168 a little less lumens, and the 194 a little bit less than that.
    So, there you have it.
