Halo vs CCFL Difference

Upgraded my headlight from Halo to CCFL and snapped a pic to show the difference for those that have asked and are curious. CCFL on Left, Halo on Right:

Re: Halo vs CCFL Difference

be sure to wire those CCFL VERY SAFELY.

They run off an inverter making 110v. gets super hot. make lots of fires over the years.

Re: Halo vs CCFL Difference

I double checked my wiring and connections. Both housings have an inverter which I mounted so they get some air flowing round them. I do have to trace some wiring because I run LEDs and Halos to a toggle so I can run them independently from each other and the Halo switch only works when both switches are on, which happened before I upgraded.

Good deal.

For the look you cannot beat the CCFL and sounds like you have the danger well covered.

No you can't, and eventually I'll upgrade my fog lights too.
