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..
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.
Thanks for the heads up. Were these the on the 44's?
I may be wrong but I believe they have mounts specific for mounting on the forks.
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.
Here it is.
So i am to guess then that i should take the 1.8 amps and figure it out.?
Which equals 21.6 watts..
Times that by 2 and round up.
It gets you to 44.
Ok ,,, so i'm not good at math i never tried to be, but by looking online i found that you take amps x voltage (AC or DC) = wattage.
So are you saying that to get the model name thats what was done,,,, or i did the math wrong and by taking the 1.8 amps he has listed on the site i am coming up with the wrong wattage.?
I just rolled out of bed so hopefully that makes sense.
You're overanalyzing this.
You got the right calculation and you performed it correctly. At 1.8 amps these lamps by rights will burn 1.8(Amps) * 12(Volts) to get you 21.6 Watts per lamp.
You received a mildly snarky response suggesting that if you double it and round up you'll get to the model number (21.6 * 2 = 43.2, round up and you get 44) . There's not much more to it than that.
I have no idea if the model numbers are related to power consumption in real life, or if it's just an amusing coincidence.
Because they are meant to be used in pairs. That's why doubling the numbers gets you to the model # 44.
Why does it matter what the model number means? Most model numbers mean little if nothing anyhow. They are awesome lights and I am sure to be ordering a few more sets for my other bikes shortly.
I gave the Spring promotion code to a friend and when they tried to order this morning, your site said the code was expired or invalid. I thought it was good through the end of May
I'd like to see a bit larger diameter LED light with on-road beam pattern (fog and driving light) and proper cut-off, similar to BMW/Hella 14W accessory LED's but more powerful.
I'd mount both driving and fog light, the '44' is bright but beam is so focused.
I think ~100lumens/Watt is state of the art right now.
