LED Light Bars & Pods

LED Light Bars & Pods

Postby -MaKuYo- » Sat May 11, 2013 8:05 am

Hi Craig and Calvin, :)
I was wondering if the 2 x 2 LED Light Pod and 6" 18W Single Row LED Light Bar/Pod are suitable to be used as DayLight Running Lamp (DRL)..???

currently, I've fitted my car with *el'cheapo* china made LED DRL that comes with a sort of like a TIR lens on each of its LEDs...

Well my previous LED DayLight Running Lamp casing has become faded and yellowish... (what do you expect from el*cheapo made) :poke:

but this new one is different, its using TIR lens~!!! :lust:
its bright wei!! check it out at the next meet~ 8-)
...
:sweat: Yes, i don't drive Audi or VW that comes with built in LED DRL in the headlamps.. (Rm5000 per pair!!!) :o
just wanna easily be seen on the road to prevent accident, safety first!!! :P

and yes... because the flashaholic in me wants to play around with Automobile Lighting... :confused:

Hi MaKuYo

That kind of depends on your definition of suitable. I know in the states modifications like these are illegal. I would imagine the lights might be too bright to use on the regular road.

Here is a picture from another website of the 6" placement

Thanks for the picture Calvin, that's a good reference.. :)

I should have been more specific on the "suitability".. What I meant was, are the lights pods able to withstand continuous usage as in "turned ON all the time to be used as DRL"..

In terms of legality, Malaysian laws are still not precise when it comes to DRL.. :sweat:

I do agree though that they might be too bright for normal on road usage, ....but then again.....I'M A FLASHAHOLIC~!!.... WHERE'S THE FUN IN THAT..??!!~~ :evilgrin: :evilgrin:

I believe they should be fine being turned on continuously, as long as you have proper cooling/driving your car. When sitting stationary I tested that it stabilized at 120F (49C) after an hour or so.

nope, AES can still capture the plate number... :sssh: :sssh:

but Aerodynamic efficiency increases dramatically~!!! :rofl: :rofl: :lol:
