Sounds normal with the exception of the led vm behavior. Perhaps you should hold off and install one of my vm.

Model 30 heat generation/disipation?

I have read this entire thread from start to finish with interest, particularly the teardown done on the first generation 27watt flood model.

The application that I am considering is the Model-30 Spot beam to replace the 35-watt H3 PIAA lamps currently installed in my Hannigan sidecar.
The question/issue for me is one of heat dissipation.

As you can see from this photo, the lamps are set inside of non-vented molded wells in the body of the sidecar.


Of course, I am not worried about heat when running in the winter, but I also have been known to ride across Nevada in June/July...

-----

The light wells are 3.0" in diameter, so there would be some free space around the LED lamps, but I just wonder if it would be enough.
(I have no illusions about the Model-44 lamps working in that space, and I think the spot beam might be better for full-time use anyway.)

The outer lamp is wired to be ON full-time with the motorcycle's low beam, and the inner lamp is wired to come on with the high beam.

-----

Thoughts?
Observations?

Data???

TIA!

OK guys/gals i ordered a single model44 for my brother (just one) I have been running the VisionX Solstice euro beam for the last 1.5 seasons. I have nothing but good things to say about those lights and compliments to boot. I never figured i would ever need any more light.

Well i just came in from the garage and to say i am stunned by the output of these lights (ADVMonster) is an understatement. I did a quick comparo of my (2) leds mounted to the front of the Vstrom and the (1) ADVMonster model 44.. With both of my lights on this one model 44 just drowns them out,, and i mean comepletely out. With my headlights in addition to my VisionX on (and on high beam) the one model 44 is about the same light output.

If i knew more about how long these model 44 lights will last i would pull the trigger like right now. They seem to be extremely well built, but,,, i want to mount them lower onto my forks. Obviously quite a bit more vibration on the forks so i'm just a bit more concerned.

So all in all, very impressed..

A friend stopped by with his new vstrom which has some of the best stock lights. I was shocked that the 44s he just installed smoked the stock lights.

Heck one model44 will drown them out.. I just did it..

I would strongly advise against mounting them on forks with the stock mounts. The mount are thin and fragile. I've seen several crack and break with vibration - including mine.

I may be wrong but I believe they have mounts specific for mounting on the forks.

The dimmer can handle four of the model 44 lights. The lights can be dimmed to almost off. The lights go to full power when the high beam bypass is activated.

So the model 44's got thier name how? I'm curious because if the dimmer handles 96 watts that to me would mean the lights only use 24 watts (ish) a piece or less?

I just dont see the wattage info on the website where you sell them.?

I've already ordered one from you i'm just doing some comparing..Thanks.

Do LED lights require DC power like HID lights, or can I use them with AC power?

I don't think it's from the watts drawn.
