I like how it states " CREE type". Does that mean they are not Cree but kinda look like them?
Anyway, good find on the lights guys.

Sorry - no pics, but I just compared both types inside my garage. My garage is roughly 20'x20'. I set up the lights at the back of the garage and shined them on the garage door. In short, they have almost the same light spread. If anything, the 60 degree round light seemed to have less spread than the 30 degree square light, although the square light might have had a slightly more distinct pattern. With the light on at the back of the garage, the beam almost covered the whole garage door. So from about 20' back, the spread was about 18' for both lights.

So I would probably just buy based upon whether you want a square light or a round light. Also note, I only tested one of each so if there are variances between lights I couldn't tell you. I don't have time at the moment to take pics, but if they are still needed this weekend I will try to shoot some.

In terms of camping lights, either one would probably work really well, especially if mounted high. I'm not sure how well they would work as a headlight replacement because the beam is so broad - at least if you were going to use it on public roads. But for a headlight on the trails they would probably work well.

looks good what did you use for the plastic? Does it light up the bar?

I just bought a pair of 8 degree LED lights for $59 and a wiring harness for it with relays for $20

I just ordered the 30 degree sqwuare lights.

if they are too big and heavy to mount on my 1100gs, I will use them for my fishing boat, or maybe an XR80 headlight.

Got them today.

heavy, bright.

just tested in the back yard against the typical bright flashlights that use 18650 batteries.

about the same intensity, although the gensii lights have a broader spread.

Ill try and get a pic.

they are mounted, way too bright, I will have to get a dimmer
today with the sun shining brightly I could not look at these straight on, im still seeing spots.

I did have to reinforce my flimsy homebrewed light bar, since they are so heavy.










This is how far down I have them angled until I can get a dimmer installed for oncoming traffic's sake.

Non-moto, but these lights work GREAT on my old Yanmar tractor:
