New Life for your PIAA, Hella, KC, halogen watt hogs

So, you’ve got these beautiful lights that have a great reflector, lens and mount but you can’t use them because they use too much power!

Have we got a solution for you!


Our H3 LED mesh monster fits in most any halogen light that uses the H3 format bulb. Power consumption is reduced by more than 50% while light output is more than doubled

We’ve included a couple of installs here for reference. The light pattern produced is far superior to halogen. Better beam cutoff, significantly more distance.


Some specifications

Malleable Mesh heatsink allows fitment to available space
Phillips Luxeon MZ LEDs provide excellent beam control.
12-24 V DC
Water and Dust proof: IP68
50,000 hours expected life
light output 2500 lumens at 13.8v DC / 20 watts / 1.4 amps
1 year warranty
5700k Color Temperature

ADVmonster H3 LED Mesh Monster install in a PIAA 540

PIAA 540 Halogen

Measured the halogen power consumption at 13.8 VDC, the H3 used 6.5amps or 90 watts! A pair of these would use more watts than many motorcycles produce.

The lights have a narrow profile, only 2.5"/63mm deep. Until now there were no LED replacements that fit in the housing.

We made the heatsink malleable so it can be shaped and formed to fit in the space available.

540 dimensions


Removed the H3 Halogen, installed the H3 LED Mesh Monster. Formed the heatsink to fit the reflector as close as possible.


The driver box can be separated from the LED headlight. The wire pass through has drilled out just slightly larger so the connector would fit through. Stock grommet works fine.






This pair of lights (including the H3 LED Mesh Monster) are for sale at $250 shipped conus. No harness included. Please contact me via sandjoh@gmail.com

ADVmonster H3 LED Mesh Monster install in KC HiLites 6" Driving

Best I can tell, KC does not offer these lights in a metal backed light any more. Current models are plastic. These used lights are for sale with the H3 LED Mesh Monster.





This light required the pass through to be opened up a bit as well, the existing pass through grommet was reused.



Old halogen for reference

That is really quite innovative solution for the LED cooling issue!
I like the product a lot.

Anxiously waiting to see meaningful light pattern comparisons.
(an area where many LED replacememt "bulbs" really suck)

Thanks!

The single beam type bulbs create a great beam pattern, often producing a better beam pattern than halogen, with twice the light output, while using half the power.

Here's and example of our H7 LED headlight on a R1200GS.

Stock Halogen High Beam

Wait till you see our new H11 LED Mesh Monster in the factory BMW fog lights
