Well, maybe......... actually that is my question. Does the 60's light go a greater distance further away than the 44's or do the 60's put their increased light with the same range lit up by the 44's? Does the increased light go more (or less) to the sides, like a spotlight compared to a floodlight? In the old days, we'd say it all depends on the optics of the reflector and lens, but the old days are gone. Is the little rounded recess that the square LED is mounted in the "reflector" which determines the light pattern?
