And here's the update.
As it got dark, I went out and clicked them on just for a quick look. Here's a couple of comparison shots against my garage. Of course, the Jeep is on an angle so that might skew things but you get the idea. (Again, LED on the left, zXe on the right.)
I clicked on the JWspeaker fog lights...
They compliment the JWspeaker fog lights nicely, I think.
Then I went out and drove around. I made sure my JWSpeaker fog lights were off so I could get a clear determination of what was making what visible. Driving around town, they appear brighter and illuminate things better than the Sylvania zXe. I can tell by the street sighns reflecting more evidently.
I then went and parked shining the beams across a soccer field. I held up my windshield sun shade going back and forth from headlight to headlight, blocking one headlight and comparing the output from the other. Hard to tell for 100% sure but they do seem to throw the beam father than a regular bulb. It is kind of hard to be totally unbiased about this. Of course, I want
them to be better, but in taking an honest and objective approach to them, I can honestly say it it appears an improvement overall.
Some things I noticed...
There is less of a cutoff and you can see this in the pics above. It may be because the LED lights fire vertically from one spot instead of the entire length of the bulb. I definitely will need to aim my headlights down a bit more, but that will close the gap between the headlight beam and the fog light beams. I think that may be a good thing, actually.
You can also hear the fan spinning. I can also consider this a good thing...because if it stops, I want to know. I hope it has circuitry to kill the operation if the fan fails. I may keep a fire extinguisher on hand for a while...just in case...along with the zXe bulbs just in case they just die. They claim to have a 30,000 hour lifespan, which is just over 104 days. If that is true, it might take me a while to wear these out.
So there you have it so far. I will continue installing the other one tomorrow. After a while, I will see how they do and report back.
