Fits a 12V system as said? – 14V Flashlight Bulb Replacement Reviews

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.
Other:
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!
