BEAMTECH 50W 8000Lm 6500K Headlight Bulbs

Brightness

The BEAMTECH bulbs give of a 6500k white xenon light which personally speaking is a huge improvement over any bulbs such as halogen or lights that give off higher kelvins. It is more crisp and less likely to blind on coming traffic which is generally the biggest concern with LED xenon bulbs.

The bulbs also give off a fantastic beam pattern which makes it better illuminating all parts of a dark road.

Heat Dissipation

As most modern LED bulbs have heat dissipation fins, the BEAMTECH guys made it super sleek and functional to disperse the heat without having to have a built in fan using aluminium. This is a huge benefit as the fans are known to become faulty over time and make a lot of whining noise when the lights are on.

With these bulbs, you plug them in and you forget. Enjoy the satisfaction of knowing your lights won’t fail.

Durability

With stress tests proving the lights can last over 30k hours, you can be sure that these bulbs will keep going for a long time. With the added bonus of the bulbs being waterproof with a level of IP65, these bulbs can last extreme conditions.

Also something to note is that the power usage of these BEAMTECH bulbs is only 25W each.

Pros

  • Waterproof level of IP65
  • Long lasting over 30000 hours
  • 8000 lumens
  • Low power (25W each bulb)
  • Newest CSP LED lights
  • Fanless

Cons

  • Heat sink may interfere with fitment
  • More modern vehicles may need special cable or resistors

Auxbeam S2 72W 8000Lm 6500K Headlight Bulbs

Brightness

As mentioned, Auxbeams S2 series bulbs give of 4000 lumens at 6000k. Giving you a great pattern of white light. You can be sure that these bulbs will keep your field of vision in the dark at its peak at all times.

Heat Dissipation

The S2 bulbs are equipped with a small noiseless fan to keep the bulbs at a cool temperature along with the aluminum fins. The fins surround the unit in a 360 degree form so heat can dissipate from all angles.

The fan spins at 10000rpm, giving a high volume of air to be sucked in to cool the fins.

Durability

Auxbeam light bulbs are all tested to the highest standard. With each light bulb rated to last over 30000 hours, you know you won’t be replacing them any time soon.

Along with their IP65 rating, you won’t need to worry about frost, water or dirt interfering with the performance of the bulbs.

Pros

  • 4000 lumens per bulb
  • Dual heating system
  • IP65 waterproof rating
  • Selection of plugs
  • Built in CANBUS
  • No delay in activation

Cons

  • Known to be difficult to align light pattern
  • Bulky housing may not fit your model car
  • Rated at 72W

Auxbeam F-16 60W 6000Lm 6000K Headlight Bulbs

Brightness

As before, the bulbs color are at the 6000k mark giving you a great white pattern on the road. It gives off 6000 lumens meaning it is a tad softer than the 8000 lumens that the S2 provides.

The F-16 uses a 2 piece CREE LED chip set up to keep things lit up during your late night driving. The LEDs are covered by a small projector lens to focus it better.

Heat Dissipation

As the S2 series, the F-16 uses a dual cooling system only this time the fan spins at a wopping 12000rpm. This further increases the cooling capacity of the light bulbs and potentially with less aluminium material to dissipate the heat, I can see why.

Durability

As with most top end LED bulbs, they are waterproof with a rating and dust seal of IP65. The F-16 is an exception where it further exceeds this level to IP68.

These bad boys might as well be bomb proof! Along with the usual IP rating, these bulbs come with a constant current driver to keep the light stable and gives off the clear light pattern.

Pros

  • Slimmer design saving space
  • Projected CREE LEDs focusing light better
  • Dual cooling system with 12000rpm fan
  • IP68 rated

Cons

  • More expensive than S2 series
  • Energy usage is a little higher at 60W
