  • Fits a 12V system as said?

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

    Pros:

    A well built replacement bulb from G&P.Color temperature is typical as those high quality original bulbs. Strength of the two springs well adjusted for positive contact even under vibration.

    Cons:

    Not really suitable for a 12V system if you demand high light output. At 12V, amperage is only ~1.55 which indicates a power rating of ~18.6W and light output is ~5500-6000 Lux tested. When fed with 14V, amperage is ~1.33, so still ~18.6W, which clearly indicates that this is not a high pressure xenon bulb, but rather a moderate output replacement bulb.

    OtherThoughts:

    At 12V or 14V, you are looking at a long life replacement bulb, but output is mediocre. So, can it be overdriven for better output has yet to be tested.

    Bottomline:

    At this price point, no complaint. You can't get anything with better value and Dealextreme has the lowest price tag!
