Car Rover 50W 10000Lm 6000K Headlight Bulbs

Brightness

The Car Rover LED bulbs produces a 10000Lm with a cool white 6000k beam of light with thanks to the new CSP LEDs. These LEDs create a beam of light which can reach up to 150m which will allow you to see much further versus conventional halogens that are available.

The bulbs also give off a fantastic beam pattern which better illuminates dark areas on a road. Basically you see things better, I mean why would you want fancier lights, right?

Heat Dissipation

As most modern LED bulbs have heat dissipation fins, the Car Rover H7 bulbs include turbo fans. These bad boys spin on some cool double ball bearings for longer lasting durability (have you spotted the pun in that sentence?).

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 IP68, these bulbs can last extreme conditions.

Also something to note is that the power usage of these Car Rover bulbs is only 25W. Making your battery last longer.

Note: Something to note though, these bulbs are polarity dependent. Be sure to plug the bulbs the correct way!

Pros

  • Water/Dust proof level of IP68
  • Long lasting (30k hours)
  • 10000 lumens
  • Low power operation @25W each
  • Double bearing turbo fan with cooling fins
  • Newest CSP LED lights

Cons

  • More modern vehicles may need special cable or resistors (apparently covers 99% of cars)
  • Polarity Dependent

Cougar Motor 60W 7200Lm 6000K Headlight Bulbs

Brightness

The Cougar Motor light bulbs are equipped with CREE XP-L LED chips which give off a combined 7200 lumens with a 6000k white light.

This gives the light a great beam pattern giving you a much clearer night drive without blinding anyone ahead of you.

Heat Dissipation

These Cougar Motor bulbs have a dual cooling system. The aluminium fins and a 10000rpm fan to keep the bulbs cool and longer lasting.

Durability

It is stated by Cougar Motor that these bulbs have a long lasting life of over 50000 hours. Along with this the bulbs are rated to IP67 waterproofing.

The energy usage is high but this can be due to the fan that cools the bulbs.

Pros

  • Long lasting (> 50k hours)
  • Rated IP67
  • CREE LED chips
  • Dual cooling system
  • Low to average energy usage of 60W

Cons

  • Chunky heat sink may cause fitment issues

VoRock8 R2 COB 8000Lm 6500K Headlight Bulbs

Brightness

Utilizing Bridge Lux chips focused beam technology, you are provided with 8000 lumens giving you a crisp 6500k xenon white light with a perfect light pattern without any dark spots. Curious how they do it using such low amounts of energy!

Heat Dissipation

The Vorock8 uses a ball bearing fan setup meaning that the fan can last a lifetime before anything gives. Along with the cold-pressed Aviation grade aluminum heat sink, you can have peace of mind knowing that the bulbs are cool.

Durability

Vorock8 has an IP65 level meaning that it is rain resistant and dust sealed. The Vorock8 has a life span of over 30000 hours and a 1 year warranty if you do experience any issues.

Pros

  • IP65 rated
  • >30000 hours life span
  • Dual heating
  • Ball bearing fan
  • Instant light up
  • Bridge Lux LED chips
  • Low energy at 36W

Cons

  • IP rating could be higher compared to other options

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

  • Energy usage is a little higher at 60W
  • Polarity Dependent
