LED Tail Light Question

I have seen a lot of LED tail lights that look very good during the day, however at night time when the running lights are on it is hard to tell when the brake/blinker is on because there is not much difference between the running lights brightness and the brake/blinker brightness. Does anyone have experience with this? Can anything be done to prevent or fix this?

Mine seem to have a great amount of contrast at night between running/brake light output, and they are just cheapies from eBay.

I guess it just varies by brand.... Redneck6.0 do you know which ones you got off eBay?

97 03 Ford F150 Pickup F Series Black LED Rear Tail Lights Brake Lamp Left Right | eBay

They are just like these...a lot of different sellers offer them. If you do a little research, they seem to be exactly like some more expensive brands http://www.spyderauto.com/m/m_produc...5097-LED-G2-BK
