Killer bulb for 7.4v format, cheap backup. – Xenon Bulb 7.4V 10W Reviews

posted by gratewhitehuntr on 11/19/2008 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Fits all P60 lights I've put it in.
Makes a cheap backup for LED modules.
Makes use of SureFire plastic (puke)lights.
VERY cheap compared to SFand comparable OEM lamps.
Nice and bright, 100-120 maybe?
I'm comparing that to LEDs of known brightness.
Color is decent, maybe 3000?
Cons:
um... slightly oval beam due to transverse filament
breaks when dropped on concrete when lit (they all will eventually)
um.. buy two get one free? ;)
Other:
for this price you can't beat it with a stick
works OK, but not great, with 6v
it does at least work
I've run mine at 9v for a while
nice and white(er) this way and probably kills the life
Bottomline:
I have some extra just in case
you should too
